Hey ya’ll! I didn’t do a Sarah Sunday this weekend because I was BUSY, so I figured I’d join in on Christine’s Bookish & Not-So-Bookish Thoughts. Haven’t done it in a while.
1. It was my vacation last week! And this past weekend was the 7-year anniversary of The Honeyman and I :) I love him. We celebrated by basically eating a crap ton of delicious food all weekend and going to the Renaissance Festival. I bought a pirate hat, we watched a poet perform dirty, bawdy poems, threw some axes, and walked around all day.
2. I also went to a comic book store for the first time! According to ComicShopLocator.com there are several in our area, and I liked the one we went to. It was a bit small, which made it feel a little awkward, but the guys there were nice and if I start a pull list, they offer 20% to 30% off of whatever is set aside for you every week. I’m thinking about starting a pull list and putting Ms. Marvel and Rat Queens on it. I bought the first issue of each of those, and really enjoyed them – I can’t wait to go back this weekend and get more!
3. I really, really, really want to make a quiche. Anyone have a good recipe?
4. I didn’t get as much reading done over my vacation as I would have liked – too many plans with people! I’ve started The Sparrow this week, but I’ve also been catching up on all the graphic novels I had sitting around waiting for me (Y: The Last Man volume 3, FBP volume 1, etc.)
5. I really need to start doing more graphic novel/comic review posts. They’ve become a favorite thing for me.
6. Home Depot is now selling 3D printers! This is awesome. I am now officially a Home Depot fan. And if I had an extra grand or two laying around, I would totally have a 3D printer already – but alas, I want to save for a house first.
7. Borderlands 2 is taking over my life. Not literally, but I’m definitely addicted to playing. This might be why I didn’t get as much reading done over my vacation… I stayed up until 4 am one night playing. But it’s crazy fun and I get to play with the honeyman.
See? FUN. And I love the comic-y looking style of the game.
8. So Amazon came out this past week with Kindle Unlimited – which is basically Amazon’s version of Oyster. I’m wondering if Oyster made that big of an impact on their sales that they scrambled to come out with this. I’m tempted, because the ONE downside to Oyster is that I can’t use it on my Kindle Paperwhite… buuuuut I want a Kindle Fire anyways, and I COULD use Oyster on that. So I’m sticking with Oyster for now. Also, Amazon doesn’t have any of the 5 big major publishers signed on yet – I think Oyster has two.
9. Yesterday was apparently Batman Day. I am unimpressed. He remains my least favorite of any superhero ever.
10. You guys, this is my THIRD post this week! Insane. Especially considering that work has been busy since I got back. I’m hoping that this weekend will be relaxing and full of comic book shopping, blogging, and reading. Fingers crossed.
So how has everyone else been?
