♠ I put my name on the AO3 waiting list, so we'll see what happens when that comes through and I actually have to. You know. Do stuff.
♠ I have officially booked a hotel room for this Wednesday. With check-in/check-out times it'll be more like 19 hours than 24, but that will still be immensely helpful. Isolation ♥♥♥ [/antisocial]
♠ Today I hit up a Borders clearance sale. And it's not that I'm happy they're going bankrupt, because I'm not, at all, it's really sad when bookstores can't stay open. But I did walk away with ~$80 worth of books and paid less than $8 for the lot. ...There was not a lot left on the shelves or I would've probably spent more than that. But y'know.
♠ There are evidently massive Doctor Who spoilers
going around, and I would just like to alert everyone that, as much as a spoilerphile as I am, I would still appreciate not being spoiled about this. Please and thank you.
♠ Sometimes I feel sad and then I remember that I live in a world where Neil Gaiman wrote a Doctor Who episode
and everything's shiny again. This is an oversimplification but nevertheless true.
♠ I wish I was in New York today to do the DW LineCon. MATT AND KAREN HANDED OUT DOUGHNUTS, YOU GUYS. WHY WAS I NOT THERE FOR THAT?
♠ I have finished Vol. 1 of The Swamp Thing and find myself getting annoyed by Alec Holland's unceasing emo. I suspect this is in part because every issue seems to feel the need to recap the first issue and I get frustrated at being repeatedly reminded of stuff I already know. (Also, they footnote everything
. "After X happened, we knew we had to do Y!*" "*ed. note: as seen in issue #12" and I'm sure this was probably helpful to people reading one issue a month or whatever but for someone going at a faster rate OMG IT IS SO ANNOYING.) Also Matt and Abby have been MIA for much of the latter part of the volume which is frustrating because I find myself caring more about them than about the Swamp Thing himself. Maybe Vol. 2 will be an easier read?
♠ That was a really long bullet point, I'm sorry. Evidently I have more ~feelings about old comics than I suspected myself of....edited to fix tags and close a parentheses. *facepalm*
