Funny Face Friday #1!

In yet another devious plot to keep my blog active and alliterative, I've added another event! Every Friday, you get some sort of funny face, whether it's a photo, a drawing, or, as is this case, a comic book panel.


This is possibly my favorite Wolverine panel ever. It comes from Ms. Marvel #40, a comic which also boasts some of the best Deadpool I've read in a while.

Metaphor Monday #2

Metaphor Monday was such a hit last week that I'm doing it again this week! Which I'd been planning on doing anyway. Which is good because I'm still not sure what constitutes a hit in a blog with... what, 8 readers? I love you guys!

Literary analysis is like ping pong. You take a sentence or a phrase or an idea and bounce it around, trying to get it over all obstacles and keep it on the table. Occasionally, you miss entirely and it rolls under the stairs, or ends up in the cat litter. Ironically, those are the papers teachers tend to grade highest.

Metaphor Monday #1

In the interest of actually putting interesting things on this blog, I've decided to start a new weekly item. Every Monday, I will post a metaphor. It will probably be strange, and I will probably stretch it far past the breaking points because it is fun to do things like that to metaphors! Plus, I like alliteration.

So, for the first ever Metaphor Monday!

Courage is like pancakes because the more you have, the taller you stand. Also, I hear courage tastes delicious with syrup and fresh blueberries.
