Akiva is around visiting, which is great! Had brunch with K and him and hung out a bunch during the day. Had good conversation, made schemes, etc. etc.

Started watching "Jessica Jones" on netflix last night, continued some more tonight. Verdict: interesting plotting, suuuuper creepy and dark. The noir hard-boiled PI bits are pretty good, the parts where the dialog betrays that its source is a super-hero comic book are cringy as fuck. Like, come on, Watchmen managed the "we're aware we're in a super hero universe" thing ok, and maybe the Incredibles gets a pass, but here it totally ruins the atmosphere. David Tennant being mega evil instead of the savior of humanity is deeply upsetting.
