So tedious is this day

So tedious is this day
As is the night before some festival
To an impatient child that hath new robes
And may not wear them.

— William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Such an appropriate verse for today, especially when the ‘new robes’ of which Shakespeare speaks seem even more fitting for my situation than that which is in his verse. :)

I talked w/ my agent last night who told me that she expected an offer on the place today — based on what she told me, it was the prospective buyer(s) who had just visited a few hours before I got home.

It’s now nearly 4:15 PM, just before the weekend, during which I will be out of town, and she hasn’t gotten it yet — or at least, hasn’t called me. She talked w/ their agent today who said that, apparently, mommy and daddy are helping to buy the house, or something, so there was more financial investigation that had to go on…?

Ho-hum… we shall see, we shall see…

Unveiling the Kim Possible Conspiracy.

So I’ve already talked about how much the Kim Possible cartoon artworks looks like that in Penny Arcade. Coincidence? Maybe. However, there are other signs that this show is really lacking originality.

For example – compare one of the archvillains from the show, Gill…

…to Mer-Man from Masters of the Universe

Ok, ok, so the TV version of Mer-Man might not look so so similar. But check out the action-figure.

Gill, to me, really looks like an amalgam of the two Mer-Man incarnations. and it leads me to wonder… do the creators of Kim Possible have a single creative bone in their collective bodies?

Don’t get me wrong – I don’t have anything against the show. I’ve really hardly even seen it. It’s just that I can’t help but suspect it’s another recycled, reconstituted media soup.

How do you say ‘burnt to a crisp’ in Hebrew?
