treacle tart with fatty and moonface

since putu is feeling nostalgic for golden days of unjaded kittenhood. (since putu is also feeling rather cummings-y, there will be no capital letters), since putu is also, evidently, in listmaking mood and not feeling like catnap just yet. you lucky, lucky people. behold.

the best enid blyton books in no particular order

six cousins at mistletoe farm
the children at green meadows
the treasure hunters
those dreadful children
the mystery of the missing necklace
the folk of the faraway tree
hurrah for the circus
fifth formers at st clares
the family at red roofs

putu refuses to put any of those dreadful noddy books or the famous five. putu once tried to teeth on famous five but it gave putu indigestion. plus they had a dog. so did the five find-outers technically, but that dog wasn't so annoying.

and since putu is feeling rather generous, more stuff about blyton here, here (though technically not a link about blyton just a reminder of how uninformed humans can be) and a nice radio interview with bbc four (which putu has not checked out but it looks like fun anyway).

Master of Magnetism, Ruler of the Savage Land, Leader of Oppressed Mutants, King of... Spain??

Marvel's upcoming mega-event 'House of M' has everyone in a tizzy, including his royal highness, Juan Carlos.

The preview for the Pulse: House of M edition, to be released in July, had the following cover picture drawn by Mike Mayhew.

And here is a photograph taken of the King of Spain by Alberto Schommer

Coincidence? Putu thinks not. So does this mean Genosha=Madrid? And it adds whole new meaning to

"The King of Spain's daughter came to visit me,
and all for the sake of my little nut tree"

The ratings war

Putu is deeply distressed at falling blog traffic. Something must be done about it!

The obvious solution hits Putu like a 200-calorie cheesecake. The blog needs to appeal to the masses. So Putu decides to introduce some T&A appeal.

So here is - Babe of the Week (predictable, but it works)

This is Power Girl. She used to be Supergirl, but then someone else took that mantle. Annoyed, she changed her costume and tore a hole in it just so her cleavage became visible. How this helped is as yet unclear.

When Wally Wood initially wrote her character, he drew her chest slightly larger in each story. At some point, they caught on, but by then she was already a 44D. Nobody bothered reducing it thereafter.

Currently she is a member of the JSA and nobody is entirely clear as to where she came from, especially now that there is ANOTHER Supegirl.

She is aggressive and an avowed feminist. She regularly knocks out supervillains for staring at her chest. This has forced DC to only make her fight gay supervillains.

Bated breath

Filming begins today on the movie version of V for Vendetta, to be released in November 2005.

The combination of Alan Moore, Natalie Portman and the Wachowskis makes Putu smile the Guy Fawkes smile.
