Started reading The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I’ve heard… conflicting reviews about this. My Harry Potter and Peter Grant deprived head wants more magic books, but I’m 50 pages in and I already hate the stupid douchebag of a protagonist. Oh god I’m a well-off white male teenager being offered a ride to Princeton and everyone friendzones me! I’m so very, very unhappy! Eh. I’ll see if it gets better.

It has recently come to my attention that all of Marvel’s Chrises (plus one Chris Pine) are all Christophers. Is Christian as a name not popular in English-speaking countries then? Because my Mexican brain didn’t even think of Christopher as a possibility.

And so the week of wanting to be in Comic-Con and definitely not being in Comic-Con begins. SIGH. But hey, we’re finishing work earlier to do choripanes! Because - just because, it seems. And it’s not like I’m gonna oppose having argentinean bbqs instead of working.

In the US at least Christopher is a very common name, and it was especially when all those various Chrises would have been born. I think it was in the top 5 boys' name for new babies for like twenty years through the 70s and 80s. There were four or five Christophers in my year all through school.

But I've only ever known one or two Christians in my entire life, and one of them is five. :)

Christian is reasonably common, but Christopher is incredibly common, especially for men around my age (late 30s).
