Can I just say I’m a bit confused by the shield? Because in the stealth suit, it’s blue and silver. But in the next scene in - presumably not long after this - it’s back to being red, white, and blue. So do they paint it after every time?
My head canon: Howard Stark made sure that the SSR was renamed SHIELD in honor of Steve after he went down. It took some word play, but the founding members made sure to honor their fallen Captain.
And Agent Grant Ward thought he was being sarcastic when he said someone really wanted their initials to spell “shield”.
Where did this get picked up again?!
While driving to my aunt’s last night, ‘Carry On My Wayward Son’ came on the radio. Before I could stop myself I said, “I love this song!”
My dad looked at me and said, “Kansas? Really? This was when I was in high school.”
I then told him it was mainly because of a TV shows. Yeah.
Productive day off.
Finally cleaned my room and fridge, sent off my Fellowship paperwork to UNL, sent my set set of Funko-Pop Winter Soldier/Commander Rogers/Black Widow and special Spider-Man purchase to my friend in Missouri, and have written half of the paper that’s due on Sunday.
Now to finish up the paper, transfer my hard copy coding to a digital format, hopefully submit the shit, and have lunch with my dad.
Oh! And I got 2 of my grades back - both A’s. Which means I’m going to have a 4.0 GPA for the second semester.
So glad I took today off.
After the really tough meeting with a student yesterday, my coworkers and I left the office and went to go see Divergent, a living reenactment of the Last Supper (as a lapsed Catholic in a Baptist church, the Catholic guilt gets you!), and grabbed dinner. Having a bitching-fest with those two ladies was exactly what I needed.
Today I got to sleep in and hopefully stave off the gran mal migraine and do some laundry. Later my dad is coming to pick me up so we can go to my Grandma’s for Easter. Until then, I’m working on my last homework assignment, possibly running to the Post Office, reading comics, and cleaning my room.
But yeah, I needed a ‘Me’ day. Especially since the next one I’ll get is in the middle of May.
