So I have a new laptop. The thing is gorgeous, it has lots of goodies my older computer was sorely lacking. I can even begin to describe all awesome features; there's a built in camera, way better graphics, it actually has sound, and the bloody Office Word that I needed. I have everything all organized, but uncle Andy keeps on sending stuff. In fact, I think I'm still due for the printer. The man is crazy rich. I love ya, uncle Andy!!

 The power my house is currently out, but at least my laptop is still working, so I'm practicing using my speech recognition software right now. I think it's coming along very well. I should probably update my journal. Maybe I'll use the voice recognition to write it. Sometimes it has trouble with more obscure words, such as names of Greek gods like Dionysus and Hephaestus. You see, it didn't even know the name Hephaestus. Not surprising, considering he's a pretty obscure god. I bought a pair of headphones today, but they broke as soon as I opened it. But that's which you get for $8.

I'm doing horrible in my Composition I class, I'm just can't write my assignments fast enough. My God, I'm starting to really hate global warming. I'm doing great in Psychology though, I'm pretty sure I'm getting in A. In College 101 I have a lot of makeup to do. In fact, I should be doing it right now instead of chatting with my computer. Overall schools been pretty draining, and it's making it very obvious my lack of social life. I hadn't really hung out with anyone in a long time, it's kind of depressing.

I finally got my hands on Y:  The Last Man and Invincible. They both rock really hard, and wish I had more money. And dude, when did the new Welcome to Tranquility come out? I'd pick that up so bad, that story made Gail Simone one of my favorite authors, by far.

Speaking of comics, Flash: Rebirth was… interesting to say the least. I'm not sure if Bart was in character or not.I think Bart is supposed to represent all the newer Flash readers who don't know anything about Barry and are skeptical. However, it makes sense Bart would still be hurt about Max and be a bit cold towards Barry. What has his grandpa ever really done for him? And if you want to be really shallow, you could argue Barry is stealing Bart's thunder of his return. I'm also wondering if Owen is ever gonna be brought up. Johns certainly knows his Rogue's history, so he should be well aware of what a mess that is and that it needs to be cleared up. Maybe we'll get an answer in Legion of Three Worlds, who knows.

Then my inner fan girl starts to wonder whether or not Piper and Trickster are ever going to come up again. It's starting to feel like Countdown was a waste of 52 issues and that there wasn't any reason to kill James in the first place. Even Rogue's Revenge seems pointless and frankly kinda wanky at this point. Was Hartley used in Final Crisis at all? As far as I can tell nothing Johns wrote Rogue-wise had shit to do with the main plot. This entire thing has just been a build up to Flash: Rebirth. Way to get the fangirls all riled up just to let us down, Johns. I want my Pipster damn it!

This has been a really interesting to write, I think I'm getting all hang of this dictating thing. Surprisingly enough, this entire thing has been written using my voice. I don't think I'll do this for every post though, it's still too finicky.
