Entertainment Weekly weighs in on "How not to screw up the next Spider-Man movie":

That's one of the many things I love about Entertainment Weekly: They don't discriminate between forms of entertainment (as opposed to people who, say, snootily declare that they never watch TV but go to see every stinky movie that hits theaters). And they have writers who know comics!!

Of course, most importantly, they have snark. And everyone knows, it's all about the snark.

Happy half-birthday to me

Today I am 24 and a half years old.

Stop laughing.

Now this feels strange. As of today, I'm closer to 25 than 24. Damn. I'm old. 25 is, like, when it starts getting scary. Right?

The funny thing is, six months ago today I was wailing because "it's okay not to have a clue in your early twenties, but now I'm in my mid-twenties and I still don't have a clue." What a turbulent six months this has been. But the funny thing is, I still may not have a clue, but I have an idea. I have a job I like that actually pays me, and though I'm still single, I'm not desperate anymore. I feel... secure. How strange. Maybe it's the new makeup or the new clothes, but I'm almost strutting these days. For the first time in a very long time, I like myself, and I like my life.

Now that's a good half-birthday present.
