|09:24 pm - Your magically delicious news for today|
The big news for the day: fa11ing_away and I have a new housemate!
Since Chris The Non-Existent has decided become even more non-existent (or even less existent - grammar emergency here!), a replacement was required. And so, that place went to Matt Who Is Yet To Get A Nickname, who went and moved into the iPartment.
Not that you can really tell - it's still real quiet around here. It was quiet before Chris ninjaed himself away last week (I'm being a bit literal there. One day there was a pile of boxes in the living room, the next they were gone, the room was empty, and the key was on the table. I never actually saw Chris do any moving); it was quiet when Chris was gone, and it is still quiet.
Or maybe I'm just distracted and sleepy.
What else happened today?
Oh, I checked my time-table for this semester. It actually looks quite decent to start out with - Fridays off, starting at 11am all other days, decent lunch breaks, no really late nights. The only thing that could possibly be an issues is that on Tuesdays and Thursdays I have classes at 2ish, which means no long arvos of random club stuff.
But it seems fairly decent to me, which is pleasing.
And in probably more interesting news to people who don't go to Uni, I also went and bought some comics today - and unlike last time I completely failed to fall down any stairs, so my l33t skillz have obviously improved.
Anyway, I got myself the rest of Preacher, so I've now got all the trades of that, some more Y: The Last Man, since I'm trying to catch up on it, and some of the Death Note manga, because it is win.
I also got NextWave, because it is glorious, glorious crack which everyone should read.
I blame scans_daily for getting me hooked on it
...That was a surprisingly eventful day, actually.
Current Mood: tired
NextWave is the purest form of awesome known to humanity. Did you get both volumes?
It's like someone took several decades worth of awesome, and then distilled it into this one little comic series.
Yeah, though I had to get them from two seperate comic stores.
I went to the one without the staircase first
I've spoken of my love of Nextwave before. :D Thanks to no comic stores around the way, I bought myself the Heroes comic and DMZ online.
Really? I must have missed it out of not being interested at the time.
I sorely regret my Naivete.
It's cool. I ramble so much, im surprised anyone reads me :P.DMZ
is a comic set in the near future in Manhatten, a demilitarized zone between the USA and the free states of america during a civil war. the main character gets himself stuck there after a visit goes horribly wrong and he becomes the local, the only journalist in the area. quite good.
It sounds very political.
What's it tend towards, humour/horror/action/social commentary?
Social commentary/action so far,
Hmm. Well, maybe if I see it around, I might take a look.

I recently did a spot of ninja-moving myself, although not intentionally. It just works out that way if you do it when nobody else is home. :-)
Is Preacher worth it? I've read some of it, and it seems interesting, but never quite interesting enough to start investing in more trades...
Yeah, but I was home when he moved. I was asleep to be precise about it all.
I quite liked it, but I will admit the only reason I bought it (rather than just read at the library) was that someone had most of it for sale second hand for half what it would be new.

He must have moved out on tiptoes if he didn't manage to wake you up.
No, I'm just a really deep sleeper. I once slept through falling out of a top bunk.

Now, that is impressive!
No 9: a.m. classes? I think I'm madly in love with your course schedule.
I try to avoid early morning classes as much as possibly. Luckily, whoever sets out the time-tables decided that having Psych lectures that started at 11 was a smarter idea.
