It is 4 p.m. on a Saturday and I am embarassed to admit that I have gotten only one thing out of several on my list done. To be frank, I was so sore and exhausted from pushing so hard at work and at the gym that I couldn't get out of bed. When I finally did get up, I wandered aimlessly around the house doing nothing of consequence other then getting a shower.
This was a clear signal to take today off from the gym. I have lost 13 pounds, hard earned by endless days in a row of punishment, so I figure my body needs a day to heal. Besides, you know you had a good lifting session when it hurts to lift a five pound bag at the grocery store after doing endless bicep curls with 15 pound weights. Yikes.
To try and catch up with my fellow bloggers, I did the rounds of my favorite sites and found that several of my friends here are making great points and bringing up interesting opinions that resonate well. To try and point these out, let me take a quick spin around the blogoverse and do a little link love.
Lisa at Sequentially Speaking has a great post about Hollywood hurting comics. She points out that Wonder Woman and Superman titles have been shuffled by the lateness of the creators that work in the film and television industry. We need creators that can get books done in a timely manner and we need them now.
Over at Shelly's Comic Book Shelf, the lady herself does several reviews I find myself agreeing with and shaking my head in glee to. Go see her brilliance for yourself.
Last night Loren went and saw Ghost Rider. I really enjoyed his opinions about the movie and wish I could have gone to see it with him. Head over to one diverse comic book nation and check it out.
Spencer Carnage at Of Course, Yeah! is having a contest to see who can turn in the best "Get Your Civil War on" comic strip. There are lots of excellent prizes. What are you waiting for? Go enter!
The worst cover ever (part 10) has been sighted over at Comic Coverage. I have to give Mark serious props for this gold mine of a find. It is too good to miss.
My personal hero Laura makes a major milestone and I am very proud of her. Not only is she doing a great series on Aquaman issues of old, she is also getting in great shape. My hat is off to Laura! Bloggity-Blog-Blog-Blog is her fun site.
My other hero of the day Bahlactus has a message for his fellow bloggers called Comic Bloggers, ASSEMBLE! Run, don't walk, over to his site to check it out. The man has spoken.
With so much comic book goodness going on around the internet, how can you not enjoy it? Go to these links and see what I am talking about.
Have a wonderful evening all! I am hoping to be back tomorrow with some reviews, including the newest issue of Green Arrow.
