Last night, Bill Maher went on a rant about comic books & those who love them & the generation (it rhymes with Schmelennials!) that uses words like #adulting & doesn’t want to give up the things they loved as kids or grow up

Well my name is Miss Valente & I got something to say
First of all, Mister Bill Maher, I’m not sure how smugly bloviating, smoking pot, and screwing people way too young for you is any more mature than reading comic books but okay buddy.
Secondly, I’m not even going to get into the literary merit of comic books. Some are great art. Some are ridiculous trash. Kind of like every other genre & medium out there. It’s not worth discussing as it’s obvious on the face of it that adding pictures does not subtract value.

The chairs we inherited after the in-laws got a new dining set are worn to the point where a slicey-pokey corner of wood juts out from the threadbare upholstery. This is how my attempt at adulting these chairs will go:
1. research local upholsterers and find one with good reviews
2. contact them with a description of the chairs
3. become outraged about reupholstering prices while grudgingly acknowledging that, yeah, I guess upholsterers have to make a living
4. search for, and watch, videos on YouTube about doing your own reupholstering
5. research how much getting the materials will cost and try to find a local source for the materials
6. discover the need for a specialized piece of equipment
7. try, fail to find the piece of equipment on eBay for cheap
