Kids Say The Darndest Things.  
Today we were driving out by where my little brother lives and we passed this place called "Omega Physical Therapy". It was in this run-down tiny building and my first thought was, "Well, what kind of quality do you expect from a place that serves the societal lower-class breed of omegas?" My second thought was, "I need to spend less time in the Supernatural fandom". So...that happened.

Anyways, we were out that way - far too early in the morning for me - to see The Nephew play his first baseball game of the year. I am tired as hell right now, but it was worth it. Got to sit out in the sun, the smell of the ball-field in the air and watch him play. He got several really good hits (they are young enough at this level though that everybody bats until they get a hit) and he fielded a few balls and made the play to first base twice (I think they only got one official out in the whole game, but at this level basically they cycle through the batting order once and then the inning is over). It was a good day.

In other Nephew news, he called me this week and when I answered the phone, he said, "I just have to ask you something real quick: Who do you think is better; Batman or Wolverine?" What the hell kind of a question is that? Doesn't he know I hate to pick favorites? I went with Wolverine, after much debate, but hoyboy that was a tough choice. What do you guys think? Who's better; Batman or Wolverine?

He also told me that he likes animated movies better than 'real people' movies because he just watched these three Superman movies (by the description he gave me, I think they were the original Christopher Reeve ones) and he thought they were boring. I said, "Buddy, those were made a long time ago when special effects weren't very good yet," and he said, "But no, because, okay, I like when Superman shoots lasers out of his eyes and he didn't even know he could do that until halfway through the third movie. So I had to watch like, uh...five whole hours until he even shot lasers out of his eyes. And that was just boring and stupid." My little man, the film critic.

In other kid news, my aunt is a vegan now (and my mom is a vegetarian apparently) and so The Little Girl Cousin (who is 8) had this box of cookies and she said to them, "These are for you too, but I don't know if you can eat them. You better read what's on the box, because I know you are virgins now." Everyone within earshot busted out laughing and my aunt goes, "No, honey, we're vegans," and The Little Girl Cousin throws her arms up in the air and says, "Well, there are a lot of V words!"

That is all.

Wolverine vs. Batman? The REAL question here is not which one is better, but better at WHAT? I couldn't possibly answer that without a lot more detail. (Except for the whole Batman warps young minds and then gets them killed thing... then again, Wolverine has killed at least one kid in canon comics that I know of, too. WHAT A HARD QUESTION!)

Kid baseball! Woo hoo! (I always took a book to my little brother's Little League games... even the year I was on a team myself, I took books to the other games. I do not have the Love of Baseball which you possess, clearly.)

"So many V words." Heh. She should listen to the opening curtain speech from V for Vendetta, then, shouldn't she? She can learn them ALL in one long row!

You can't have more details, because I didn't get more details! Better at everything, I guess. I went with Wolverine because basically unless you chop off his head or blow him into a million pieces, he'll always come back, whereas Batman is ultimately just a man. The Nephew counter that with, "But he has all those gadgets in his belt!" (which just proves to me that Lucius Fox is the better of them all).

(I always took a book to my little brother's Little League games...

My sister used to do that at our games! I do love baseball. It was one of the things my dad and I both like and bonded over. I went through many years of not watching baseball, due to angry adolescent years, but I rediscovered it a few years back when the Tigers went to the Series and I have really gotten into it again since I cleaned up and now have the concentration for it once more. Because I do love it, at the heart of things, even if I can't play anymore.

ahahahaha! Except that shit was creepy. I just remember that whole opening bit being oddly creepy and sexy at the same time. I suspect the sexy was just Hugo Weaving's voice (that was who did the opening speech, right?)

Well, if I can't have more information, I'll go with Wolverine too.

Indeed, Hugo Weaving was V. Even if you didn't recognize the voice right off, his slightly swaybacked stance gives him away every time.

Your family is hilarious and baseball is fun. One of my brothers used to play and I remember going to games when I was younger.

I can't pick between Wolverine and Batman, they're both broody and awesome at what they do. I'd rather go drinking with Wolverine and be saved by Batman

lol Yep. Idk where these kids come up with this stuff!

One of my brothers used to play and I remember going to games when I was younger.

I was the only one who didn't play and yet oddly I was the only one who ever had any real interest in the game. I managed teams and kept score though. At The Nephew's game the other day my brother was talking about how his own little league team was always the only one in the league that got their batting averages at the end of the season because I also kept track of that stuff for them.

I'd rather get saved by Batman too, but I'd rather fight alongside Wolverine. Batman does not work well with others, even less so than Logan does. I would NOT want to go drinking with Wolverine though - that healing ability means he can drink everyone under the table with ease.

How cute!

Thank you! The kids in my family are riots with the things they say!

Your family kills me.

Batman is better. Because he is the Batman.

AHAHAHAHA A MAN DRESSED LIKE BAT!! Now I'm going to think of that every time someone says 'Batman' to me. LOL When my friend's baby was about 6 months old I got him a onesie with the Batman symbol on it and underneath it said "I'm Batman" and every time she put it on him she had to imitate Dean Winchester saying that.

Batman is better. Because he is the Batman.

Batman seems so fucking badass but he also seems precariously close to having a psychotic break. Whereas Wolverine is just badly disgruntled with fits of violence. I'm sticking with Wolverine.

Your family kills me.

Thank you! The kids in my family are so fucking funny sometimes.

Woleverine beats batman for me, not sure why, but he does.

Sounds like you had a good time with the baseball and the nephew, I hope he has fun with i. And It's kind of cool that he's already a little film critic, I wasn't great with the original superman films, I guess I like my superheros to have lasers from the beginning to :)

I would have peed myself laughing at the virgin thing, but she is right, that is a lot of V words.

And in her honor I'm using my Frank icon because he is one of my fav vegans.

I agree and I have cited many reasons in my above comments, mainly that unlike Batman who is only human, Wolverine will basically come back time and time again unless you chop off his head or blow him up in a million pieces. Also, Batman is a little psychotic and Wolverine is just badly tempered sometimes. The Nephew counters that Batman has cool gadgets in his belt, but that is just proof that Lucius Fox is the coolest man ever for making said gadgets. 8)

I wasn't great with the original superman films, I guess I like my superheros to have lasers from the beginning to :)

Yeah, the original Superman movies do not hold up well and do not entertain, at least not the way we expect it these days. I agree with you and The Nephew on this. Plus, lasers that shoot out of your eyes are just cool, man.

LOL Wait, that's the dude from MCR right? I didn't know he was a vegan. Very cool! See he can afford it though. Whereas my aunt is extremely poor and while I applaud her moral values, when you struggle every week just to buy groceries, it may not be wise for you to stand on your moral ground. I just worry that she is going without things that she needs (like house payments) so that she can buy all this organic local vegan food that she buys.

Wolverine is just very badass and I like the sort of animistic thing and come on the claws are cool right? And he had way more of a tortured past.

Yep Frank is from MCR, From what I know he's been trying to be vegan since they were a little band touring around in a van, but from what I've heard he's become more hardcore about it as time has gone on and for me I'd assume that would be money making it easier.

I think it would be really hard to be a strict vegan on a budget.

Oh and from Twitter the lead singer (well x-lead seen as they've broken up) has recently decided to go vegan as well.

Personally I'm way too fussy an eatter already to rule out so many food groups. And being an ex-chef I'll cook most things...apart from frogra (spelt wrong I'm sure) Because there is no ethical way of producing that.
dodger_sister: wolverinedodger_sister on June 13th, 2013 07:16 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah, Wolverine tortured's past def makes him appealing to me! Batman has one too but not as bad as Wolverine's.

I am an extremely picky eater and I have enough health problems without worrying if I am getting enough protein, etc. You know? I think I'll eat anything without letting my moral values get in the way - except for veal. I just can't with the poor baby cows.
lizibabes: petelizibabes on June 13th, 2013 07:28 pm (UTC)
Wolverines whole life is so hurty, you just want to make it better.

Ditto on the health problems, I have trouble with my iron levels for one thing and calcium issues, so food is tricky.

I won't eat veal either, seems to cruel . The thing I couldn't spell is a french goose livers pate which they need to make the liver fatty for, so they fource feed the birds with a tube, I've seen it and it's horrific.

Oh god. That's awful. Well, that's going on the list with the veal. I will remember to never eat that.

I'll try most things once, but not that. I found the right spelling so you can avoid. Its Foie gras.

The chef who trained me showed our class some pretty squick worthy things. Some students went green and had to leave the room with this one.
