Abby, 12: "Mo-om, can I say the S-H word? Just this once? Pleeeeease?"

Me (noting that it's just her and me): "Um, okay."

Abby: <deep breath> "Peter Pan is a little shit!"

Me: "Amen, kid."

That is a pair of seriously screwed up men. Those Ward boys, man.

Love Fitz's caveat on how fast he can assemble the transmitter with both hands.

How cool is the EMP-in-Two-Parts?

Not to mention the cyanide pill to the face rather than in a tooth...

It only makes sense that Peter Pan is the Pied Piper. Who else would drag boys out of their beds never to be seen again...?

I am being instructed by my seven-year-old in the intricacies of Monster High. Because we tend to watch My Little Pony more often than MH, she uses a fair number of analogies, like, "Howleen is like the Cutie Mark Crusaders; she is younger than the main girls."

Since MH is all about tolerance of people different than you, I am okay with this.

She is the target demographic. I am not.

Yeah, I love the little "Easter eggs" that parents can find in some of the subtle references, like Clawdia living in Londoom and being an American werewolf ^__^

+K.B. Burnfield, that's a totally reasonable tack to take, and every parent has to make their own decisions on this stuff.  To be honest, I find MH to be more palatable than Barbie/mainstream fashion dolls, because the very stylized, cartoon-y body shape and head size isn't being sold to girls as achievable or aspirational . . . it's pretty clearly unrealistic.

(FWIW, I am not a fan of Bratz in the slightest, because I find them to be shallow, materialistic, and trashy -- I think that they push young girls to grow up too fast and to dress in an exaggeratedly sexualized way, and they echo the excesses of some extremely wealthy people and celebrities.  The MH girls, at least, are being portrayed as 15-18-year old girls in high school, and they have a strong message about diversity and acceptance, whereas Bratz seems to be all about consumption.)

Glad you liked the article, +Jenn Kirkland!! :D

"May I use your computer for some research, Mom?"

This is a question that I was not expecting JUST yet from the first-grader...

Sorry... I may have had a tasteless aneurysm. I'm laughing though. NO CLUE why it popped into my head.

Creating a retinal image for the purpose of unlocking the enemy's door? There's an app for that.

Is everyone a stooge for Hydra?

It's hilarious how they're all shocked that May can talk.

Poor Fitz (again)

Poor Fitz...

Also, how cool is using your transformative power on a rubber tire for insulating yourself?

Ward is clearly completely broken.

And that's Lucy Freakin' Lawless. Doing an American accent. (And in looking that up to verify that it is in fact her, I found that her astrological sign is Aries. Heehee...)

Yes, it is one AM. I do plan to watch another. What of it?

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. random thoughts (I just finished Season One, which I have been mainlining on Netflix.

There may be spoilers.

You have been warned.

Before he got - um... vaporized - Garrett's transformation into a Deathlok-thingy was disturbingly Cyberman-like for me. He will be upgraded. And then poofed.

The Woman in the Flowered Dress - Raina - is amazingly pretty.

I've been pitying Fitz for the whole season, and now...

Oh goody, crop circles on the wall... although they look like circuit boards to me.

Do not piss off Agent May.

The girls and I have discussed the process of redemption in fiction fairly often, what with things like  _Once Upon a Time_ and Doctor Who. So I have (faint) hope for Grant Ward, in a Master-was-driven-mad-by-the-Time-Lords sort of way. No, he wasn't brainwashed as such... but that was a seriously abused kid, who was abused (in the emotional sense) even more by Garrett. Hey, If Rumple-freaking-stilskin and The Dark Queen can have moments of Good...

Watching Once Upon a Time with Abby, 12:

"So people who have whackjob parents grow up to be either whackjobs themselves... or very, very sad."

Well, yes.

Introduction
JennTheGamerMom here! Also known as GrumpyJenn - but I'm really not, much.

I blog at Out of the Mouths of Gamers' Babes (and this is babes in the children sense; get your mind out of the gutter)
I'm socially liberal, fiscally moderate, going to school online, writing for fun (but alas, not profit), working full time, and being a Mom (it's not a job; it just is).

I don't mind text-based smut or NSFW, but audio-video NSFW will get you uncircled and possibly blocked; I have small kids hanging around me and my laptop quite a bit.
