I think it's pretty clear what he did better.

Lolita 

Dozens of chapters and years in the story later Humbert is visiting Charlotte's grave when he suddenly decides to tell the story of the murder of Dorothy May Grammer in 1952 by her husband, who beat her to death before putting her body in a car and crashing it.

As Humbert puts it: "It appeared to be a routine highway accident at first. Alas, the woman's battered body did not match up with only minor damage suffered by the car. I did better."

Lolita 

Early in the story a man, the narrator of the entire novel, who calls himself Humbert Humbert marries a woman named Charlotte Haze to gain access to and prey on her daughter Dolores. Humbert hates Charlotte and repeatedly fantasises about murdering her. He buys a gun and a starts practising with it. But he also claims to be of a nonviolent nature. That he could never actually go through with it.

I've been reading Lolita. I'm almost finished it. While I was going through it I've been reading and taking part in a small bit of online discussion about the novel. One thing people question is what really happened around Charlotte Haze's death? Can Humbert's account be trusted? So I was surprised when I came to near the end of the novel and discovered that Humbert just admits to murdering her.

I only just noticed that the Avatar blurays I have are labelled as The Legend of Aang on the box and discs like it was called on TV here but the actual title cards in the episodes say The Last Airbender

might fuck around and defeat the Fire Lord

After all the crying I've been doing over everything that happens in second series it's incredibly satisfying to watch the Gaang just bulldoze the Earth King's palace guards

the Misfits Pack's usage of it as an accent to Metropolis Zone is good though youtube.com/watch?v=ZaSujuFj2b

any project that tries to incorporate Wood Zone as a level runs into the fundamental problem that the Wood Zone tileset looks like shit

It's only Carcassonne if it comes from the Carcassonne region of France, otherwise it's just sparkling Kingdomino.

food 

I am very fond of the plastic microwave rice steamer pot thing I got in aldi. I'm already getting great use out of it.

legal forms 

I'm looking at the form for a gender recognition cert and there's a section for preferred title which has the options Mr., Mrs., Ms. or Other that one can fill in oneself. If I write in "none" am I going to start getting letters from the government addressed to None Caoimhe?

Ok, I can't sit on this any longer. I'm not just playing otomes all day. I'm also making one with my long time collaborator, Io :D

Metal Gear Solid 5 

I find people's particular hatred of Huey Emmerich odd when the game doesn't have a single likeable character in it.
