I have a couple of things today, the first comes to us from Facebook, of course, where I have my love/hate relationship.
First off, I love Facebook for the way it keeps me in contact with family and friends that are far and near. With todays hectic lifestyles it is a great way to keep in touch. Having said that Facebook is also a great place to have your privacy invaded. By invaded I mean strange people sending you friend requests, people you don’t know and have only one person in common.
Now I am not talking about family or distant family, I am specifically speaking to the person who is friends with only one person I know, I don’t know you, you aren’t from the same town I’m from. So to you I say, “I don’t know you, that’s my purse”. If any of you are familiar with King of the Hill you will recognize that phrase.
I am not in the habit of accepting friend requests from men or women that I don’t know. I believe it’s bad form, if we do know each other and I have forgotten, which I am quite capable of doing, send me a message. A simple hey I’m so and so and we met at fill in the blank.
Also, if by chance, you are male and you happen to think I’m a looker, here’s the thing. And there is always a thing. If you smoke, no, if you wear crocs, no, flannel is probably out as well, unless we are hiking in the Rockies. If you look like Dean Cain, I’m all in, however, if you look like Dean I’m probably a no go for you.
Next up, I saw Shazam, the movie, which I am very excited about. I loved it, I am a huge fan of Captain Marvel, for those of you not in the know. That is his name in the comics, but the creators of this film could not call him that as Marvel’s Captain Marvel came out just last month. Since not everyone is a comic book fan they decided to not go with that name.
With this movie coming out I downloaded the DC Universe app and tried to watch the old Saturday morning Shazam shows. They have been remastered and the coloring is good, but they are dated. But the two I watched were still fun, I fully admit I switched over to Lois and Clark after 1 and a half Shazam shows.
Back to the movie, for those of you who are not familiar, Shazam stands for: the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury. Zachary Levi did such an amazing job being the adult version of Billy Batson, and the child actor they got to play him as, well, a child, he was fantastic as well. I will not give away any spoilers as the movie hasn’t been out for a week even. Just go see it, it is fun, and a great origin start for this character. I loved it, I will buy it when it comes out, I urge everyone who is a fan of comic books or superhero movies, go, now, leave your job, your home, the grocery store, just go.
Well, that is all I have for now, still waiting on my profile from BBFF and his GF. They have had a busy few weeks, I shall be patient. No dating profile as of yet, so no dating app. Stay tuned, they are not letting me off of the hook. Also people at work have become interested as well, so updates will be forthcoming when I have them.
As usual, any comments, questions or criticisms can be left here or sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
