Good grief

So... I just got off the phone with Batman. The call lasted over an hour but was mostly filled with long awkward silences. If you've never had a conversation with Batman, that's basically all there is -- a lot of not talking. Batman is the master of not-talking. In person it's not so bad because at least you can see him staring a hole through your head while you make yourself look as apologetic as possible. That doesn't quite translate over the phone.

Needless to say he's completely and utterly PO'ed. The quieter he is the angrier you know he is, and that was one quiet phone call. I already knew he'd be disappointed in me, I already knew I'd let him down, but that didn't make it any easier. All I can do is my best and hope that somehow I can redeem myself in his eyes, though I'm not sure that's possible.

He told me not to contact him any longer unless it was an emergency. What does that mean? What's an emergency to him? When you're on your last breath and your body is going cold? If LA has its way that day may be sooner rather than later. Maybe everyone's right, maybe Batman doesn't want me around anymore.

Anyway, I saw this video and it reminded me of Gotham for some reason. I'm really homesick.



This sucks!

I went on a short patrol just to familiarize myself with my new 'home' some.

LA is proving difficult. I'm used to towering skyscrapers, updrafts, labyrinthine alleys. Gotham is a vertical city and it's easy to swing from building to building. LA is like a big wasteland of stubby, ugly buildings. There's none of the gothic beauty of Gotham here, and so far I don't care for it. I spend more time avoiding being seen than I do watching for crime.

What I will probably do is invest in a motorcycle or something so I can patrol on ground level. In Gotham, we had the advantage of the sky where we could keep a watchful eye on things. Los Angeles is a horizontal city and it's actually a bit unsettling. I feel like a lot of my training is going to waste here.
