Waterbug

This is the introduction to what may become a longer story.


He was dragging himself through the window, sodden foot sliding as it sought purchase on the sill, when that old familiar tingle registered at the back of his mind. In an instant he dropped into a somersault that brought him the rest of the way into the room, just as a creak on the stair reinforced his immediate dilemma.

He tore at the mask, wrestled his arms and chest free of soggy blue and red, and cast about for something to hide his legs.

The comforter from his bed would have to do. Thwip!

No sooner had he embedded himself in folds of fabric than the door squeaked open and in came Aunt May with an armload of laundry.

“Peter!” she gasped upon seeing him. “When did you get home? I thought you were out studying.”

He shivered involuntarily, and her eyes went to the drops of water clinging to the tips of his hair. “What on earth?” she said. “Why are you all wet?”

“Um…shower?” said Peter Parker, adjusting the blanket on his shoulders and glancing quickly down to make sure his feet weren’t visible.

“If you’ve just taken a shower, Peter, you didn’t do a very good job.” Aunt May’s nose screwed up as she set the neatly folded laundry on Peter’s desk chair. “What is that awful smell?”

He could hardly tell her the truth, so he shrugged helplessly. “Sorry, Aunt May. I’ll try again.”

“You do that, Peter.” Aunt May turned to leave, giving him one last sidelong glance. “And this time, try using a towel.”

Superman and Spider-Woman

I watched this whole thing. And now I must pass on the horror!

Update: Lyrics!

Spiderwoman: tu mera superman,
You are my superman
Superman: tu meri lady
You are my lady
Spiderwoman: ho gaya hai apna pyaar already
we’ve fallen in love already
[ostensibly referring to the fact that they were hot for each other before her superpowers]

Spiderwoman: mehsoos karoon mehsoos teri… bahon mein(x2)
I experience the experience of you in your arms
Superman: mein naaz karoon chale saath tu jab rahon mein(x2)
I am glorious/proud when you walk the paths with me

Spiderwoman: tu mera superman, mein teri lady
You are my superman, I am your lady
ho gaya hai apna pyaar already
we’ve fallen in love already

Chorus: super…super….super…super superman(x2)

Spiderwoman: hamdard hai to kamzoron ka…hai sahaara(x2)
You are one with/sympathise with the weak…their help
Superman: tujhe mereliye ambar se gaya hai utaara(x2)
You have been brought down from heaven for me

Superman: mein tera superman, tu meri lady
I am your superman, you are my lady
ho gaya hai apna pyaar already
we’ve fallen in love already

Spiderwoman: tera sunke naam aajaye chamak aankhon mein(x2)
I hear your name and it brings a sparkle to my eye
Superman: mere dil ne chuna hai saath tera laakhon mein(x2)
My heart has chosen your company from amongst hundreds of thousands

Spiderwoman: tu mera superman,
You are my superman
Superman: tu meri lady
You are my lady
Spiderwoman: ho gaya hai apna pyaar already
we’ve fallen in love already

Spider-Man 3 = awesome.

I’ll wait awhile to give my full report, since I know my friends are going to want to see the movie and they wouldn’t want me to give anything away.

Here are some general, non-spoilerrific notes:

Fabulous opening titles.
Amazing visuals.
A lot happened. I mean wow.
Lowell got old.
Yay for more Spidey characters!

I really want to say something about something that happened to Peter…but I’ll restrain myself.

Newness

I’ve added a comments feature to this page, using BlogKomm. (Who knew?) And so, from now on, I won’t be updating my LiveJournal or Xanga sites. They will, like my unknown Blog-City account, fade into obscurity and nothingness.

I’m going to try to move the comments from both sites over to this site eventually. For now my main goal is to redesign this page to make it look a little nicer, and to make the comments fit better. I also need to add my new RSS (Atom) feed as a link on this site.

The main reason I’m posting now is because I’ve started using Bloglines to subscribe to pretty much everything I read…and through Bloglines I’ve been reading a lot more news. Because of that, I have six links I want to share…so here they are!

And that’s about it. I’m sure I’ll find more links soon though…Bloglines is going to suck my life away, I just know it.
