Invader Zim may be out of production, but I still love it! Also, I couldn't think of anything else Z-related. Except other cartoon characters, like Zoidberg. I just realized this is my third post involving cartoons or comics in some fashion. Hmm. Wonder if I should worry about that...
Reasons to watch Invader Zim:
1) Awesome dialogue. (This is totally important for you writers out there.)
Dib: You can't make me look! I'll just shut my eyes.
Zim: Oh, you'll open them. You have to breathe sometime.
Dib: No, I - Wait... What do my eyes have to do with breathing?
2) His minion robot.
(It's not stupid, it's advanced.)
Zim: GIR! I've been captured!
Zim: No, that's bad GIR!
Ms. Bitters: Zim!
Ms. Bitters: There's a pigeon on your head. You've got head pigeons. Go and see the school nurse before you infect the other children.
Zim: Yes, Ms. Bitters.
That's it. Oh, and because I need to reassure myself that I have not yet gone past the manageably weird stage, there's an InvaderCon that I have no urge to attend. Yay for being less completely inappropriate for my age bracket!
Z has been kind of anti-climactic for me. I like the middle of the challenge. All the hard letters are saved for the end, and I have a theory about that. When people make up words and names, they only recently started shooting straight to X and Z for the cool factor. In the 22nd century, 87.59% of all words will begin with either an X or a Z. It's true. It will be Xtremely Zcool, except for during A to Z: all the other letters will be hard to find relevant words for that don't sound anachronistic. *nod*
