Recently I've gotten into a few new webcomics. I mean, I've had a few that I've been reading forever, but these were found via other comics, some of which I'd spotted before but never really got into.

First, there's Girl Genius, which is very Mage-like, but with Mad Science being the Magic of choice. I read this and go "I've played that character and that one and that one and that one" and it is incredibly well written and the art is spectacular. It helps that it started as a print comic and it is released in print form in volumes. Excellent read, so go start at the beginning.

Next, there's Two Lumps, which is the story of two cats. Not so much a story as joke a day strips, but it's fun. Some short storylines show up, but it's mostly a gag or a joke a day.

Finally, there's Girls With Slingshots, which needs to be made into a sitcom so I can watch it as such. And I don't watch sitcoms for the most part. But this thing is hillarious.

I must buy comics tomorrow.

Wow. It's been a while since I posted in here! I feel like such a bad blogger, except for that part where I don't typically blog so much as babble when I write in this thing. Still, it beats the mounds of memes that I used to post all the time.

So, what has my life been like since last I posted? Let us explore, shall we?

Weekends off? Cool! Oh wait, there was money involved in that... )

FullTimeJob needs socialization badly. )

[livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi has been going crazy due to end of the semester wackiness, and group projects where his group is non-existant. That's all done and over with and so far so good. He has this week off then starts summer term up next week. Here's to hoping the job hunt goes well, too.

I got bit by the spring cleaning bug. I got a lot done, but have a lot more to do. And I really want to keep it up this time. Granted, I say that EVERY time and it never sticks. I've got a bit more laundry to do, my desk to clean, and my bathroom to clean and then all of my areas are done. I should probably vacuum the apartment today or tomorrow, too.

I don't watch enough TV. Honest. )

We still need to go visit [livejournal.com profile] lilacmoon5 before she and her husband move out of state. The move date got pushed back, so we have a little more time, but I want to do it soon™. Why, yes, I do want to get season 1 of Battlestar Galactica back so that I can watch it and then season 2 and then season 3 when we buy it and get caught up. I'm weird that way. :p And I wouldn't mind getting one last Shadowrun game in, either. Or a few games of Fluxx or Dalmuti or Crononauts.

Sims 2 addiction much? )

I almost regret to say that I cancelled my City of Heroes account. We haven't played either Heroes or Villains in months, so it was a logical decision. Of course, Issue 9 was just released today. Fortunately, there isn't anything in Issue 9 that has me jumping up and down and going "I want it! I want it!" so it's not going to get me back.

World of Warcraft babble )

[livejournal.com profile] nuadha_prime needs to have a card night again soon. Granted, more people need to show up for them, but hey. ;) And I need to get him back his copy of Kingdom Come. Reminds me, I need to pick up comics. I'm a little behind. Dropping Wonder Woman until issue 13, though, so that should help. Probably going to cut back a little bit more, but not sure.

Anyrate, I've spent 30 minutes typing this up. I'm gonna post it and maybe write more later. :p

Gail Simone is going to be the new PERMANENT write on WONDER WOMAN starting with issue 13!

Why, yes, I am a comic dork. :)
jdotmi: (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] nuadha_prime? Card night this week?

[livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi? Finish off the chicken strips tonight? (It's a sickness, I know, I've had chicken strips for like 5 days in a row)

WoW blabber. Almost 67. 1.5 levels until Flight Form.

Neverwinter Nights 2? Nice and shiny, but damn could they have made it more brutal to a machine than they did? Not used to turning shit down on my home PC for anything anymore. Oh, and way to go re-using all the voice samples from the original game. Nothing screams "production value" more than recycled audio tracks.

Comics blabber. Supergirl #13 was good. There were a couple odd artwork moments, but still good. And they need to decide between all the artists how Powerboy is going to look, because the cleavage window is way too big for a man. Granted, showing off a hairy chest (there was no hair on him the last few times I've seen him show up in anything) isn't something I'd complain much about, but hey. JSA #2 was okay... I like it, don't get me wrong, but it didn't seem like enough actually happened in the issue. And the big reveal at the end would have probably been great if I had actually any idea who *spoiler* was once he took off his mask. :-p That entire not having read any of the previous stuff and all. ;-)

Back to work time.

Yay! Lunch time! Yeah yeah, my normal lunch time is at 11am. x_x It's kinda bad. Mondays are different due to a meeting I have, but the rest of the week is an 11am lunch time. I get out of here at 6pm. Feel free to do the math.

Tonight is Red Robin night with [livejournal.com profile] eligrrl! Haven't seen her in months, so this'll be fun. I am so going to Fun4All after dinner tonight. I have to get my comics. And I may have to pick up the latest issue of 52, since it has a plot twist I so did not see coming and that will possibly even shock some of my more comics-obsessed friends. We'll see. And I need to pick up Supergirl and JSA. And maybe Batman and Birds of Prey if the new ones are out yet. If I can get this out of the way today, I won't have to wait for them to open on Friday before doing my Meijer run.

I might do an instance in WoW tonight when I get home. Depends on how insane I'm feeling. I finally bought an Epic Mount last night. Letalli's now tooling around on a Swift Stormsaber and she's gently stabled her Striped Frostsaber in the bank.
jdotmi: (Default)
So, we may have had good news last night. Well, we probably had good news last night, but I think we'll find out today. Well, [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi will find out this morning. Either way, it's all good.

Have to pay rent tomorrow. Blah.

Hmm. What else to write about. Well, there is the constant WoW posting (tonight is going to be my first Onyxia run), but I didn't actually do anything exciting yesterday in the game, so not really worth posting about. I do need to go pick up comics soon. Maybe Friday morning, although I work at Booth on Friday. We'll see how things go. I know that the new issue of Supergirl is out. And maybe I'll set up a pull list. We'll see.

Work is starting to pick back up as the holiday season ends. It's not technically over (we have a week or two left), but this is traditionally when things start to calm down.

Okay, I need caffination. Badly.

I am one of those rare people who actually has room in his mouth for some of his wisdom teeth. In particular, I have plenty of room for my top wisdom teeth. Not so much for the bottom. Either way, my top left side wisdom tooth came in a few years back. It's a little off center, but it's in and fine. Now, my top right one is coming in. I noticed on Monday that the gum was really sore and sorta throbbing and it was freaking me out. Yesterday, the throbbing was gone, but it was still tender. I felt it and, sure enough, I could feel the tooth just under the gum. Today, the tooth is closer to the surface, but hasn't yet broken through. I'm not much looking forward to that point, because it freakin' hurt when the first one came through. Although, this one actually has slightly more room to come out than the other one did. Still. Annoying. And, ya know, OW!

Batman #659 and #660 )

No WoW CCG playing tonight. Potentially tomorrow, though. Put $5 of gas in [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi's car on my way in to work. We'll fill up both cars on Friday or so, is my thinking. I need to get some CoH time in tonight to get more Snaptooth missions done and do some present opening. May go grind some undead for faction in WoW, too.

Anyrate, break time is up, so I have to get back to work.
jdotmi: (Default)
Bought some comics today.

JSA #1 )

Birds of Prey #100 )

Also picked up the two latest issues of Batman, but I haven't read them. Apparently the one I picked up last week was older than I thought. The issues I nabbed are #659 and #660. I'll read them tonight, I'm sure.

Also picked up 5 boosters for the WoW CCG for myself and a Starter deck and 5 boosters for [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi. He's napping right now (he's still working off the icky-gunk of doom he's been dealing with) but we'll go through what we've got and get his deck in order. The happy thing is that his pre-made deck is a Tauren Shaman, which is exactly what he wanted. Couldn't have planned it better if we tried.

Well, I'm going to sort out cards and re-build my Priest deck now.
jdotmi: (Default)
First off... holy hell what the fuck did they do to the update journal page??? o_O

Second, went over to [livejournal.com profile] nuadha_prime's place last night to play some of the WoW CCG. It was a lot of fun. [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi and I are going to pick him up a deck tomorrow. And I think we need to get [livejournal.com profile] winterlady and [livejournal.com profile] bugfish playing, too. Cuz then we can drag them over for it as well.

Also borrowed the OYL issues of Teen Titans from [livejournal.com profile] nuadha_prime. And the introduction of the White Martians in JLA. Loaned the four issues of Supergirl that I have to him so he can catch up on that one.

Today is my Friday. *yey* Then I work again on Saturday. *boo*

Well, my break time is almost over. Time to get back to the work grind.
jdotmi: (Default)
Today was a shopping trip to Staidum Cards & Comics, where I picked up a bunch of books. And a starter pack for the WoW CCG.

Comics stuff and spoilers below the cuts.

Teen Titans #41 )

Wonder Woman #3 )

Batman #658 )

Supergirl #11 and #12 )

All in all, I'm pretty happy with the books I picked up. I'm thinking of starting a regular pull list with Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Supergirl, JSA, Birds of Prey, and Teen Titans in it. We'll see, though.
jdotmi: (Default)
So, today is a busy day.

Superman Returns is out on DVD. Shopping must ensue.

Issue 8 of City of Heroes launches today. Must make a Super Hero and/or Villain with some variation of the name "Always"... Because I am crass that way sometimes...

Meijer must be invaded. We're out of soda and milk and could use some grated cheese-style product for pasta.

Then there's all that work stuff that needs doing. Crazy how that happens.

Some day, I'll figure out where I should be going to buy comic books, because I'm starting to get behind on the things I want to read...
jdotmi: (Default)
Last night, after work, I went over to [livejournal.com profile] nuadha_prime's place along with [livejournal.com profile] jvankirk, [livejournal.com profile] nakednerd, and two other guys who I don't think are on LJ and whose names I forget to play a one-shot game. We wound up choosing a game that [livejournal.com profile] nuadha_prime has run at cons called Brave New Krypton, which is basically an Elseworlds game where the Science Council of Krypton wasn't all mentally retarded and they followed Jor-El to Earth along with an unknown number of other Kryptonians. Everything was all fine and dandy until they started developing super powers and General Zod staged a coup. Flash forward several years, and you have the remaining super heroes of the world banding together underground to resist the evil Kryptonians and hijinks ensue. We had characters from all over various comic worlds involved. I played Black Canary, [livejournal.com profile] nakednerd played a version of Quicksilver, [livejournal.com profile] jvankirk played Iceman (from the movies, albeit, very very fucked up in the head), and the other two played Hulk (the version that can still become Bruce Banner) and The Atom. It was a lot of fun.

So, now, I'm stuck at work with my comics, some dvds I brought, and my boredom. Soon I shall make snacks (pizza rolls) and have soda that was on sale.

Off I go to be bored!
jdotmi: (Default)
Currently taking a little sanity break from World of Warcraft and City of Heroes/Villains. The CoX sanity break will end when I8 hits live. The WoW sanity break will probably last a couple weeks. I'll probably log in every few days to use my salt shaker, but that's about it. I need to not be up until midnight during the week for a while. At least until I'm not stressing out over work.

This past weekend (actually, until tomorrow) was Employee Appreciation for Borders folks. Unfortunately, one book I was going to pick up is actually not in stock at any location near me (the new World of Darkness core book), so didn't manage to get it.

Comics stuff. Superman/Batman, Supergirl, Infinite Crisis, yadda yadda yadda )

This past weekend also saw a quick trip to Best Buy, which nearly resulted in $300 worth of purchases, but we talked ourselves down to a more sane number. So, now, I have me some Final Fantasy XII to stare at slack-jawed for months on end as I try to unlock absolutely everything for everyone. So far (less than 10 hours in), it is a LOT of fun. It's also significantly challenging. Boss fights can be tough in a way they haven't been in a FF game for a good long time. I'm sure that by the end of the game they'll be much much easier simply due to the escalation of the player's power level, but still. I'm actually stuck on a side-quest target who has kicked my ass three times because I haven't figured out how to use Quickenings effectively yet. I'm going to try to unlock a quickening panel for everyone in the party before I try him again, especially now that I know what I'll need to actually do to beat it.

Anyrate, I've been writing this in lulls in work for like two hours now. Stopping and focusing now. :-p

Apparently, my brain is the place of fucked up dreams of late. Well, last night anyway. Woke me up at 4am it was that fucked up.

The dream was a City of Heroes/Villains dream in which Power Girl was flying around Sharkhead Isle or some similar place beating the shit out of Freakshow and Vazhilok. And she was chatting with [livejournal.com profile] margaras (wtf?) via some intercom/headset thing while she did it complaining about how she couldn't be all stalkery if she didn't know which warehouse he was in. o_O

Needless to say, I didn't wake up late this morning. Very very weird. O_o
