Up until the age of seven, whenever somebody asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, the answer was always “The Silver Surfer”. The image in my mind was utterly BAMF*; something like this:
Today somebody asked me what my post-graduation plans were. I stared at them for a long while and eventually shrugged idiotically because, while a ridiculously moronic and pathetic response, it was better than admitting that Silver Surfer is still my most solid career option.
*Realistically, it would probably just be me plus tin foil.

Reason Number One:
My best friend is named Megan ( http://meganrose2414.tumblr.com/ ). This is us:
During the opening weekend of The Avengers she braved the crowded theaters, my screeching, continuously disappearing panties, hyperventilating and various other symptoms of Avengers geekery just so I could see the movie when it first came out. She doesn’t read comics and any previous Marvel movies she has seen are the ones I dragged her to. BEST. FRIEND. EVER.
