Booger! Booger! Booger!
The comics fairies have stolen my copy of Dark Days by Steve Niles & Ben Templesmith.
Dammit. Now, where would they have hidden it... *ponder*
Anyway, slept through much of Tuesday, dealt with Circlet orders in the evening. I could only ship half of them since the other half hadn't paid for their eBay auctions.
Worked on editing an 18-page history paper on McCarthyism through most of the night, crawled into bed around 10am on Wednesday, and failed to get up until just before our monthly Somerville Garden Club meeting (though I did manage to grab a quick shower before we dashed over). At the meeting we listened to a presentation on smart growth for cities using a 2003 plan for Union Square as a model of discussion, then another presentation on what the club might do to spruce up some park space along the bike path, then I gave my worm talk again, but in a much shorter amount of time (about 20 minutes). I made a lot of jokes that required you to have seen The Great Escape to understand them.
Came home, ate dinner, stayed up until my back couldn't support me anymore editing this awesomely interesting dissertation on aid programs in Cambodia. This is one of the main reasons I love editing - I get to read these really interesting papers.
Crawled into bed around 8am, slept about six hours, crawled out of bed and went to MYP (late, dammit). Among MANY other comics, I sold a couple of copies of Alison Bechdel's Fun Home (you may know her better in relation to her well-known strip Dykes To Watch Out For) as well as a copy of the new Friends of Lulu anthology, The Girl's Guide to Guys' Stuff. Read the 0 issue of an interesting new comic called Herc Brown; it's a modern day retelling of the Hercules labors. This time, Hercules is an African American. Looks interesting. Generally had fun talking with people about nerdy stuff and comics. Bought a comic trade paperback and a copy of Herc Brown, closed the shop, took the T to Porter, picked up some 'scrips, walked home, ate dinner, read the comic trade paperback (30 Days of Night: Bloodsucker Tales by Steve Niles & Ben Templesmith) to relax. Dug up my copy of the original 30 Days of Night, with the intention of reviewing the whole series soon. That's when I discovered that I can't find my copy of Dark Days (book number two in the comic series).
And that brings us full circle.
I'll be back at the Picnic tomorrow (Friday) sometime after 2:30pm, staying 'til 10pm cuz I'm closing. Saturday off, then back Sunday sometime around 1:30pm until 9pm (again, cuz I'm closing). Drop by and say 'hi!' if you're in the Square!
Damn, I'm tired.
