Some days, parenting is a real minefield. Like this morning, when I asked the child what might be a good question of the day and she said “What kind of buttery noodle would you be if you were a buttery noodle?”  She’s not as hungry now, having had breakfast, but her other options are equally as ludicrous (“Who would win in a fight? Spongebob or a bird who speaks French?”) with one exception, which has become today’s irretrievable query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) isn’t asking for nefarious purposes, but is instead genuinely curious, asking: Spoilerites Roll Call!  Where are you right now?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    I’m on faraway worlds taking down evil monsters and hanging out with aliens and elves of questionable moral character.

    Translation: I’m sitting at my computer in my room playing video games and watching Doctor Who. Not too exciting, but there are a lot of Halloween quests in my online games right now and I want to get as much of the stuff for my favorite holiday as I can. Plus… Not much else I can do when I’m sick.
