today i quit smoking. or did i just run out of cigarettes?
as i've been sick for the past week and a half i haven't had too much a craving for em, so i figure now's as good a time as any. the thing i liked about smoking was that i could always pick it up or leave it without much effort. but now it's gotten harder to leave it in what i'm pretty sure they refer to as addiction. and, well, i realized i have been smoking (on and off) since i was 16, which is gonna be 10 years soon, and i think 10 years makes me an official smoker. ewww.
this past week i've been a complete lazy bum. mostly i caught up on the new 52 i've been reading. batwoman (of course!), wonder woman, and the suicide squad with my girl harley quinn. oh harley, what have they done to you?
it seems a really cruel joke to make my harley no more than a harlot. it's not that i don't like the look, cause i do, it's just not harley. harley was the coolest because her appeal wasn't sexual. she didn't need it. she did it all on her own by being bat-shit insane. all covered literally head to toe and still she was everyone's favorite. i will say they have written her well, and thus far i'm actually liking suicide squad in it's own right. but i can't help but feel they're bastardizing a great character for a cheap thrill of cleavage in a tube top.
i still need to read batgirl. i'm gonna check out justice league dark, too.
while in bed being all lazy and whatnot, i watched the seven faces of dr. lao, since it was one of ray's stop motion flicks. eh, really boring. there was barely any stop-motion, and the plot made no sense. i left missing those 2 hours of my life that could have been used watching dateline. le sigh. i was also able to watch one off my list of to-dos, escape from new york. it was alright, i prefer mad max, but escape NY did bring a certain level of class i was not expecting...
also watched batman - gotham knight. or at least started it. the animation is amazing. simple amazing!
