I am so, so tired of action heroines in movies and comics fighting in high heels, aarrrrgh. Listen, I have nothing against heels; put a character like Pepper Potts in heels and sure, that works for me. Lampshade the issue, like Greg Rucka does in Batwoman: Elegy, and I can handwave the problem. Have the woman take off her heels before going into battle (Natasha in Winter Soldier) - particularly if she's indestructible! (Wonder Woman in her animated film) - and I might even cheer. Better yet, put her in flats. Boots, even! I have no trouble believing a woman can fly, but expecting me to believe that any hero would choose to fight in stilettos is too much.

Today was one of those days that it was generally good to be a human being, despite some expected anxiety regarding human interaction. Got my hands on a return of The Muppets that wasn't already on hold for someone else! Went to the grocery store and purchased goods with money I earned! Started a really excellent book! (Thanks, [personal profile] odyle!)

I also started the second volume of Bryan Q. Miller's Batgirl, and I'm seeing why everyone raves about it. It'd be helpful if I had someone to follow me around and explain DC, though. At least the crises. They are indeed infinite in number.
