The not so giant Ant-man

See, it's not so bad to get a toy people have been talking about last year just now, especially if one got it for a good price, lower that anything sold online. This build-a-figure Ant-man was released along with the 6-inch Marvel Legends line, something I don't collect, so the only way I could get this is through the secondary market. Although I wanted the figure, I wasn't willing to pay the unreasonable prices online sellers where asking for it. Here's why.

This 10-inch Ant-man is still short for the 4-inch line, what more for the 6-inch figures? Any self-respecting 6-inch Marvel collector would find a better option for an Ant-man. When they realize that it's in bad scale, 6-inch collectors will let go of this 10-inch figure. Since the 4-inch figures is a dying scene, at least for the Marvel-Hasbro line, the demand won't be high. 

If you're still hunting for this figure, just wait it out until you get a good deal. You'll live even without one anyways.

How beautiful

Latte has simple rules to live by: surround yourself with everything good and beautiful, treat problems as if they don't exist, and never have an empty bottle of happy pills.

Today, she found a note that says, "It's over between us." She paused for a while, looked around the room and said to herself, "How beautiful these empty chairs are!"

Hear the Christmas carols. A prisoner was killed by cops, according to an investigation. The cops will not be jailed according to a president. We are about to approve the death penalty once again. Christmas is for the children. There is a plan to lower the age of criminal liability to 9 years old. Meanwhile, we are putting up the Christmas decorations.

I want to thank you for joining me tonight to celebrate the beginning of our new narrative. I call it "Journey into Night".
