Last night was my company Christmas party. It was an absolute joy, and it went way too quickly. My hubby and I were two of the only people not drinking, so at a certain point in the evening, it is definitely time to go, but we had a blast. I have a rule about not drinking and driving, and with the weather being bad, it is easier to not drink at all then to try and have a couple and function. Besides, I am a lightweight!
At any rate, we had a wonderful day today of eating out, visiting friends, and coming home to play on the computer. We are having way too much fun on ComicSpace, meeting people and reconnecting with old friends. It is definitely addicting, and I am trying to have self control to not look at it during work hours!
Over at Seven Hells!, Devon has a great entry about Blackhawk and an imaginary conversation with his creators that left me rolling. Go check it out!
At Sequentially Speaking, Lisa makes a great point about the dirth of Civil War related titles coming out next week. If I was getting the entire saga, I would be furious that seven books are coming out at once. Why Marvel can't spread it out is beyond me. Last month my retailer had the same problem.
Over at Polite Dissent, Dr. Scott is presenting a really fun advent calendar of sorts- a chance to see some old school Christmas-themed covers and hear his thoughts. I am loving this!
The always amazing Loren at One Diverse Comic Book Nation takes a look at "When Fanboys Attack with his eminently logical view of all things comic book. Loren gets it.
New friend Amanda over at Lit(erature) Chick does a great review of Blood Diamond. It really makes me want to go see the movie!
Poor Laura is not able to stay at her house because of the horrific wind storm that hit the Northwest a couple of nights ago. My parents are in a similar situation, and I am praying for their safety and the ability to return to their homes soon. Go check out Laura's updates at Bloggity-Blog-Blog-Blog for details.
Does anyone know where my friend Pamela's blog Comic Book Wife has gone? Is she alright? If anyone knows, let me know. I am very concerned!
That is it for the evening! I am going to go try and talk my husband into watching one of the Netflix we have had sitting around for the last month without watching. We are obviously missing the point of it by keeping DVD's for over a month.
Take care! Have a wonderful evening!
