Playing to my strengths

It occurs to me, looking back over the past month, that I spent an inordinate amount of time whining. This is not attractive. Taking my New Year's resolution a tad early, I hereby resolve to try and whine less. I also finally got the Restoration Disc from HP in the mail today, so hopefully in a few days, I'll be back on my regular computer and posting like sonufabitch.

Also, to all those guys who are moaning about the delay in the next Green Lantern issue over at the DC Message Boards, get a grip. It will be here when it gets here. I want it too, but I'd rather have it be pretty. Anyway, we had the Rage of the Red Lanterns issue to tide us over.

So...in conclusion, you can never ever have too much of Hal Jordan making a fool of himself.

Hal Pictures

In this particular episode, Hal pretends to love domesticity, and rhapsodizes about the joys of marriage. He even feels that his shirt needs a button sewn on. He offers to do the dishes! What you don't see, is that in the next panel, he and Tom fall into one another's arms laughing hysterically, and ordering Terga and Carol to bring them some pie.

LOL! Yeah, Tom was always great at giving Hal "domestic" advice -- and when Tom couldn't do it, Barry filled in for him. Obviously, Hal didn't listen very hard. ;-)

It's okay to "whine" every once in a while -- especially if your computer is on the fritz! :-) The important thing is that YOU are aware of your actions. That appears to be a rare trait in bloggers, sadly. :-(

I didn't notice you were whining. Oh, and computer issues is not whining, it's the end of the world kind of thing.

My computer at home went mum for the entire past week and I was on the fritz. I whined a lot, well, a lot off-screen, lol.

Oh, and Hal certainly had some macho issues back in the day. In perspective it was quite fun.

I had one for Superman and Supergirl if you want to check it out: http://comicsalltooreal.blogspot.com/2008/07/would-you-marry-supergirl.html

Well, it didn't ever 'read' like whining, anyway.

Just keep using more words like "sonufabitch." That really tickles me.

(tee hee)

That last sentence really made me laugh. Ah, the Silver Age...

Being without a computer IS a horrible horrible situation. However did mankind evolve?

Sonufabitch is such a descriptive sort of word. I also like consarnit and dagnabit.

We could all use a bit more of the Silver Age. It seems like such a long time since Carol was chasing after Hal...or vice versa.

He...he's got a ring that can alter the orbit of a planet or perform molecular-level surgery, and he can't use it to sew a button back on?

Well, not yellow buttons, sure, but cripes.

Yeah...in a lot of ways, Hal is really pretty pathetic.
