That’s The Funny Thing About Promises

What The Snowman Learned About Love – Stars

As you might expect, I’m supposed to be studying for one of my exams right now. Which one isn’t important. Whenever I’m stuck in one of these ruts, I find myself thinking back to high school. My teachers could not have been more supportive. Somewhere in the midst of all my wisecracks and B-minus assignments, they saw potential. Promise. However, whenever people use the word promise in these situations, it is actually intended to indicate a lack of confidence. It’s more about hope than a guarantee. Like over the last couple of years, watching the Raptors. There were several occasions where I said, “Man, this Rafael Araujo has got some promise,” which was inevitably followed by him dribbling the basketball off his own foot. When you say someone has promise, what you are really saying is that you have no idea how things are going to turn out. That’s one reason why I never make promises.

On a completely unrelated note, I’d like to thank William for bestowing upon me the second set of Batman: The Animated Series DVDs. It includes three of my favourite episodes, If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Rich?, Harley and Ivey and my personal favourite, Almost Got ‘Im. That last one blew my mind when I was a kid. I also like the one with Zatanna, who Paul Dini apparently ended up marrying in real life. Paul Dini is king.

Conan. Tracy’s really excited to be back on your show.
I don’t know Jack, he’s kind of a loose cannon and I like to surround myself with people that don’t try to stab me.
Well Tracy’s feeling a lot better now. He’s under a doctor’s care.
Yeah, that’s what they said about Hasselhoff. Then he tried to make out with me during a commercial break.
Conan. This is important to me. So we can either do this the easy way or the hard way.
What’s the hard way?
You do a live Christmas Eve special from Kabul every year until the war on terror is won.
Tell Tracy I’ll see him tonight…you Black Irish bastard.
Back at you, Red.

Destined to fight the world's evil, The WAMBAG endures massive battles involving impossible stunts, races on horse-pulled carriages, and the desecration of enchanting medieval castles (all done with dizzying computer graphics). Not only does the eye candy keep on coming, the tongue-in-cheek writing and deep Transylvanian accents perfect the film with a dose of dark humor.

Tagboard (!?!)

Apparently PHP7 doesn't support the same function calls I wrote in 2008? I should fix this at some point.
