    Currently my favorite show. The aesthetics are great, and it's really trippy in a good, Twin Peaks kind of way. There's a parallell to Logan in this one, in the way they deal with how mental illness affects really powerful telepaths.

    I really liked this one. Jackman got a LOT more to play with than in the previous films, and he delivered on all fronts. The interplay between him and Stewart's Professor X was heart-rending. I also liked the way they played with the idea of what happens when the most powerful telepath in the world gets dementia.

    So, if anyone cares, it turns out I didn't get the position as vice president of the journalist federation. The national congress isn't until late march, but the election comittee has already said they'll back the other candidate (from one of the largest chains of broadsheets). I could have chosen to slug it out on the congress, but I deem my chances as fairly small, and have therefore chosen to withdraw my candidacy. I'm fairly bummed out, I must say.

    There's a saying in Norway: "Kids and drunkards tell the truth."

    'Bout time you caught a break, Pooka!

    These videos make me so, so happy.

    That Star article is good.

    Don't worry, they'll switch to Frank Miller soon enough.

    You could, but it'd be hard to top reality.

    Agreed, Avaunt, that is genuinely very good news.

    Nougat is basically nut-paste. If you have nut-allergy odds are you can't eat nougat.

    Umm you are aware that nougat is a core ingredient in Mars bars?

    I am happy for your breakthrough, 7c. Epiphanies like that can feel really good, and the chance to restructure your life is worth taking. As for your mother, you may well be right that her reality check is damaged. If you're right that she has a personality disorder, parts of that can impact the way she actually perceives and interprets the world around her. I had a girlfriend once who was abusive and had massive problems. It took a couple of years afterwards to realize that a)she had been gaslighting me quite a lot, and b)part of the reason for that was that she really had a distorted view of the world. So when I thought it was obvious to everyone, including herself, that she was being unreasonable, she didn't see it, because her own intense emotions clouded her perception. Of course, I don't know your mother, but from what you describe, it sounds like she may very well not understand how her behaiour affects you, or her responsibility for how the relationship works. I think some distance could be necessary for you. Maybe later you can reconnect, when you feel stronger and more able to deal with her. Good luck!

    I'm sad I can't try this out, on account of my nut allergy. I'm sure I'd find it awesome, in a nausea-inducing way.

    I hope that's a good thing...
