So, it's kind of been a while, huh? Heh. Whoops. Internet's been less than reliable at this new place, you see. And there hadn't been much to talk about before then. But I've suddenly had a really busy week.
For instance, Booster Gold #2 came out on Wednesday! \o/ It was great, of course. Not quite as super-dee-dooper awesome as the first issue, but considering how very super-dee-dooper the first issue was
, I don't think I'll count it as a strike against it. Booster and Guy are both full of the woobie. And the teases about Booster's dad are going to drive me insane, I'm sure of it. Want info now! Lordy, I don't think I would've survived reading Booster's original series as a monthly. Putting off the origin story until the 6th issue? Madness! :O Spoiled by reading the entire thing in one afternoon? Me? Probably!
Bamboo yarn is unbelievably amazing
. Joy told me that is was amazingly soft and wonderful and demanded that everyone at Superdickery go to their local Michael's to feel the bamboo yarn up, and I did honestly believe her, so I went to Michael's and I saw a knitted swatch of the bamboo and was all "Oh. Joy says I should feel this because it's amazing. *Feels* Oh my God!" because it is just. That. Amazing. I bought three little skeins and made a scarf. Wheeeeeee.
And my Booster Gold action figure finally arrived! \o/ I ordered him and Supernova, what? Early June or July? One of those J-months. But I do recall promising pictures of an EPIC BATTLE with Unicron, and I do occasionally manage to deliver on my promises!( Collapse )
And there's this meme doing the rounds that I did with some somewhat interesting results, if I do say so, myself.
*Cracks fingers* I've never really done one of these before, so let's see how this goes. I've decided to stick to DC comics here and even made a gender-balanced list! Amazing!
First, select your ten fictional characters by whichever method you like best. Then answer the questions below.
1. Beatriz "Bea" DaCosta (AKA Fire)

10. Michelle "Shel" Carter (AKA Goldstar II)( Collapse )
Y'know what? I really ought to get myself an Official Icon of Fannish Glee. This is a horrible deficit I have here. Of course, that means I'd have to figure out what to use for it, and oh, there are so many things that fill me with fannish glee....
