Oh, no! My wallet!

Santa went a little nuts at Best Buy today. It was so bad that they gave him a $10 gift card as a thank you.

And for the first time this season I actually saw some snow today. Not much, and it didn't stay long, but it was there. Big wet flakes, too.

On a different note, I flipped through the latest issue of Batgirl (#4?) and I enjoyed the following exchange:

Oracle: You've been watching the "Pirates" movies, haven't you?

Batgirl: Just the first one.

I smiled really big at that. :D

I'll also want to add that ever since Stephanie Brown entered the Batman family (some, what, 10, 15 years ago?) I knew she was destined to be Batgirl. I kinda dropped out of the comic-book world for a few years for financial reasons, so I'm not sure what was up with that assassin-girl who took up the role, and I think Stephanie had a baby at some point (what happened to her? It was a girl, right?), but it's nice to catch up a little with your favorite comic book characters even though you're not reading them on a regular basis. Is Bruce still suppose to be dead, btw? I don't mind Dick taking up the mantle (sp?) of the bat, but I'm not thrilled with Damian as Robin. I'm okay with his existence, just not thrilled with him being Robin. And to show how really confused I am, I'm really not happy with the return of Jason Todd, who should have stayed dead. Batman is a DC book, not Marvel. < / rant>

Oh, and I've been meaning to ask this for a while, but am I the only one who thinks that Lady Gaga could be Christina Aguilera's attention-starved little sister? Just a thought. :p
