Random Thoughts and Musings

Last night was the picture night for all the winners of the "Get In Shape" contest. My pictures were supposed to be at 7:30 p.m. but between having my team's group shot and two different poses on my individual shot, I didn't get home until almost 9:30 p.m. I am dragging butt today!

I did catch the end of this season's Biggest Loser: Couples and am quite thrilled that a woman won. Ali lost the highest percentage of body weight to become the first female Biggest Loser in that show's history. Yay! She looks fantastic, and has achieved her goal of conquering her emotional issues as well as resolving her physical challenges. My hat is off to Ali.

I didn't get to be around for very much of the Portland Comic Book Show. I took Jim there early and stayed until about 10:45 a.m. Then I ran back to my parent's house, had lunch with my mom and then had a painful experience I would rather not discuss in detail before running back to the show. I didn't get back there until 3:45 p.m. which made the hubby upset. It also made me miss the man, the myth (Swinebread) and my friend Kirk. I did get to talk to Jason Metcalf for a bit, and he is very cool. He has brains and talent, and I was very impressed by him.

I just read that Catwoman is ending with issue #82. Bummer! I appreciate what Will Pfeifer and David Lopez have done on this book, and will miss it.

On that note, I am going to take out the garbage, do laundry, and try and read a few comic books before it is bedtime. I hope you are having a great week! I hope to post in greater detail before too long! I have lots to say, but low brain power to do so until I get some decent sleep. Story of my life!

Congratulations on winning, Heidi!

Yes, I'm bummed about Catwoman, too. The grouch in me wants to say that we should have seen the end coming, what with the way the character has been jerked around by the various cross-overs of the last two years.

It's been a busy week for me, too, and I've only been able to read the Brave and the Bold #12 -- which felt to me like Mark Waid was referencing X-Men #100 -- but let me stop right there because I might be spoiling things by going into any more detail.

Sorry I missed you at the show but I'll be at emerald so no worries!

Melchior, it is wonderful to see you here! I have missed you. Thank you for the kind words!

Catwoman's cancellation really surprised and saddened me. After she went through so much, it really is awful. What will we do now?

Brave and the Bold #12- I concur. It was fascinating to say the least. :-)

Take care!

Swinebread, I am happy to hear you will be at ECCC! I was really hoping so!
