unprofessional

At approximately 10 pm the night before my lab practical, the information for my lab practical was posted online. In less than 12 hours, I have to figure out how to perform this, and writeup both a reagent table, and a procedure for a "Fischer Esterification"...It is almost the set bedtime I made for myself, and I still have tons of OTHER things to do.

Thanks asshole professors. Honestly though, this is the most unprofessional conduct I can ever even IMAGINE. You wait until the NIGHT BEFORE LESS THAN 12 HOURS AWAY FROM THE FIRST SET OF STUDENTS TO POST THE PRACTICAL! Also, you did NOT go to your office hours today. YOU WERE NOT THERE IN YOUR OFFICE HOURS and then you want to try to screw me over for the practical? Honestly, I am so pissed at the lack of professionalism I have had to deal with all semester.  

Sigh.

I understand that Gambit will appear as well. What can you tell us about his role in the story?

He has a cameo at the beginning. This arc starts off at a Burning Man-style festival in the Black Rock Desert. I actually took to Twitter when I was planning out this story and asked people, "Who, out of all the X-Men, present or past, do you think is most likely to show up at Burning Man?”

The overwhelming consensus was Gambit. [Laughs] He’d be sort of the skeezy guy who goes around offering dubious massages, and stuff like that, so he does have a cameo at the beginning. It’s a lot of fun. I hope people are as excited about this as I am.“

You know what? I’m done with Marvel–at least until they get editors and writers who are mature and don’t insult characters. She’s another writer who doesn’t understand him–just what he needs.  I’m so fucking sick and tired of so-called professionals who are supposed to know what they’re doing misrepresenting a character.

I might have been willing to excuse the "skeezy” comment as her simply misspeaking if it hadn’t been followed up by the “dubious massages” part. A while back she asked Twitter users for some advice on Cajun French (because why do any research when you can ask Twitter? seems to be her motto), but I notice she asked nothing about his personality or anything that really mattered.

And what I find hilarious is that the general public just LOVES this brand. But most of them I’d bet have no idea how the comics fans are treated. Oh, it’s great if you’re a fan of one of the Avengers or a writer’s pet character, but for everyone else (ie, the X-Men), forget about it. People don’t see the way this company treats long-time fans. It’s disgraceful.

A clean version of Puppy love with 9nine (clean as in not having the pop-up in the corner of someone else watching it also).

I get a big laugh out of this video, as I picture one of the other group members (i.e. Nocchi) flipping shit backstage after, all like ‘Goddamit could we once..ONCEONE GODDAMN TIME *whips a bottle of water across the room* have you not breaking down in tears Ayaka? I get it’s emotional as it’s your sister but every time we’re on Camera you devolve into a blubbery mess JESUS CHRIST!’ I know it’d never happen, but it’s a goofy thought I wanted to voice to zero people. : P
