Random Musings and Thoughts

Whew! Thank God it is Friday! I had a busy but good week at work, so it is good to be home.

Thank you to Lisa, for asking about how my local retailer's shipment went this week. I am happy to say that all the comics and collectibles got to the store in a timely manner. There were no problems this week, and I am very thrilled about that. I am crossing my fingers for many more weeks of excellence to come!

I have read around the blogosphere that Joe Quesada was named Wizard's Man of the Year, so I am very curious to see the new issue of Wizard and check out all the year end awards. Sometime after the issue comes out, I will probably post about it. Quesada is an interesting choice.

Redhead Fangirl and Shelly both have blog entries pertaining to Birds of Prey #100. I have to admit to mostly being pleasantly surprised, and looking forward to the future of the book.

In scary news, it just dawned on me that Thanksgiving is less then a week away now! Good Lord! Usually I spend the long weekend sorting through stuff and trying to start a Christmas letter, so I am bracing myself for the start of the very hectic holiday season. The good news is that we always spend the holiday with family or friends, so it is quite nice.

That is it for tonight! Have a wonderful evening, and a great weekend!

Glad to hear that all your comics arrived at your shop this time. This week was actually a light week for me at the store. I walked out with just few comics.

John- it was really nice to walk in the door and see my retailer smiling! That being said, my fellow comic book patrons were also quite relieved. It was a nice feeling to be able to walk in and grab the books.

My week was pretty normal, comic wise. I really have to drop a few more titles!!

Ha ha, Heidi, our "wonder woman" who defeated the evil LBS (late books syndrome)! Now, if you would put your powers towards the 4 to 6 evil variant covers and such!
And before I get (really tired, this Christmas Season is nuts already) I forgot to mention I attended Tampa Con last weekend and of course, he said with full humility and humbleness, won the costume contest! Of course, I probably put at least $100 bucks into it to win $50 back. But, I needed to replace somethings that I will use over and over, so really, I still came out ahead. Pictures here:

Carl, Congratulations on the big win! I am really impressed. The pics are very cool also!

Don't work too hard, and take care, okay?
