Springed [Monday 14 Feb 2011 at 03:37 am]

It was the warmest day of the year so far today. There were hundreds of people outside playing and I bicycled across the city and through the hills in my little black shorts and light jersey without a coat or gloves or anything. I know it won't last long. The Ministry of Commerce predicts a storm on Wednesday. For now I'm going to try to get out as much as I can and enjoy the sun as I watch the January snowbanks melt. Lots more snow coming in March so I'll make hay while the sun shines.

Anna Torv sounds just like an American to me. Lena Heady is always just a touch off in the way she speaks. But I can't put my finger on the difference. It must be a really subtle pronunciation or intonation difference.

It's nice to see Marten back again over at QC. We haven't seen him for almost three weeks. Getting slapped for ogling at the bar puts him back about where he was in issue number one, doesn't it?

Number 3, to be exact - Jeph's comment today even says "Marten Reed, former professional indie ogler". Nice tie-back. Good thing too. They've all had just a wee bit too much relationship angst the last few months.

A present for the fans -- it's like he's doing us a little favor.

I noticed going back that it seems to me Faye is drawn a little differently now compared to 1800 weekdays ago. Pint-Size is mostly the same, though.

Huh, she definitely sounded a little off to me in Season 1, but I don't notice it anymore. I like to think that she got better, but perhaps I'm just more used to it now.

She sure isn't from Boston, but I could easily believe that she's from a privileged or formal upbringing most anywhere West of the Mississippi.

Hmmm, this is the 2nd time you've made a comment about the weather that mirrors the weather where I live. *ponders*

This morning it sounds like my roof is about to blow off. You?

Biking through the mountain passes was like heading straight into a wind tunnel but at home my windows aren't even rattling.

You're probably from the mountain states, then. Be happy; these are the best places in this country.
