I'm *really* itching to mention something from school today, but I'd better not. I mean, it would really be terrible if the professor about whom I'm thinking would somehow find this site and see what I've written about him (or her, of course). It's too bad... really juicy story, too. Sad, tragic, and hilarious. C'est la vie at UMBC!
To ease your pain from not getting this intriguing story (just yet...) ever so slightly, here's something that should cheer you up:
...But what happens when the Japanese try to make a TV show based on a beloved American superhero? Remember all the griping about the fact that Americans didn't show the proper respect for a Japanese icon? Well, maybe we can claim that it was just revenge for the bizarre spectacle that was Toei's 1978 TV series based on Spider-Man. (We'll be using the Japanese phonic spelling, Supaidaaman, interchangeably with the more familiar American spelling of Spider-Man, so just swing with it.)...
More reason that I'm movin' to Japan ASAP. Who needs Willem Dafoe when you've got this guy as a villain?
And be sure to remind me to write about this incident that I'm ever-so-cautiously avoiding at the end of the semester, OK?
