White Chocolate Coconut Cream Pie

Some of you may know this, but I sling comic books for a living. And let me tell you – there has never been a better time to be a nerd. Between the Big Bang Theory (and the 9 million people that ask my if I’m Penny and if it’s really ‘like that’ every single week – seriously, Penny?! That’s kind of an insult… and kind of not all at the same time…), GOOD superhero movies galore, and freakin fantastic comics, its the dream life. Normal people buy comics. Nerds buy comics. Hipsters buy comics. Girls buy comics. Families buy comics. And occasionally, a really smelly kid buys comics. But really what I’m saying is – everyone is buying comics. It’s a fun way to read great stories and a fantastic hobby to have (hey, they could be sitting in a bar). If you come in and said you read this on my site and want to try reading comics – heck! I’ll give you a free one (first one’s free, baby. Then your addicted like crack)

So where am I going with all this comic talk? Really, I was going to talk about the social media world and how the internet’s little head just about melted the other day when it was announced that Ben Affleck will play Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel. I was mixed immediately, but calmed myself in the rationality that a) Affleck isn’t a horrible actor b) it doesn’t matter who’s playing Batman if the movie is going to suck. And after seeing Man of Steel and the dark dreary universe that those superheroes are playing in, I can’t see this being nearly the rock em sock em action flick that Marvel has taken the opportunity to build. So, while my 14 year old inner nerd would LOVE a Batman Superman movie half as cool as the original arc by Jeph Loe, I know it’s just not happening. Marvel has a formula – and it’s working. One that DC is simply choosing to ignore for a darker grittier reality. But the truth is, if my superheroes aren’t fighting for humanity, trying to save it, and are just blowing things up, is it really a hero I can root for?

NERD RANT OVER. Now on to the real point – how awesome (and powerful) is social media that a movie that is going to bomb any way has received this much attention in that short a period all because some one leaked a casting call?

Now, to make up for that… I made you a pie. And it was glorious. Route for that. Demand a sequel. We’ll get Chris Hemsworth to star in it… with whipped cream… it could be the superhero blockbuster sensation women everywhere were waiting for.

white chocolate with coconut...incredible. Ben Affleck as Batman, not so much. He too much of a nice guy pretty boy.

I was a bit surprised by the choice too. But then I figured that he'd have his face covered most of the time anyhow so maybe it wouldn't be so bad. I always thought Val Kilmer was the best one, but then I just love him anyway (especially in Willow).

Your pie is gorgeous. Amazing and gorgeous. I have my coffee. Now I need pie.

I am hopeful but skeptical about Ben Affleck- just hoping for the best overall for the movie. However, I am certain I would love this pie. White chocolate: yum.
