not dead

I havn't fallen off the face of the earth just broke as hell & don't have anyone to borrow internet from. Be back soon!

p.s. WTF is with Huntress's outfit? She looks like all those "bad girls" that were so popular in comics like 10 years ago. Horrible.

I do not fear hell for I work in retail

As you can ascertain from the title above I work in retail but not in sales, my job is all behind the scenes. So lucky me I get to wear a uniform of sorts that identifies where I work. (I promise this is going somewhere.) I've been a little under the weather for the last couple weeks so I finally decided to go the doctor & left from work for the appointment. After a fairly brief wait I get into the room with the nurse & take off my coat so she can her thing. Upon seeing my work shirt she asks if I worked at the one down the street. I reply no, I don't work in just one store I travel but I was in that store today. The lovely nurse then proceeds to unload how much she hates that store, why she hates that store and what she thinks of it's employees. Um ok.... where did I say that I owned the store or had any type of power? I'm sick as hell can I please just see the doctor & be on my way? Why do people assume that if you work retail your only job is to kiss their ass? I hate the fact that I normally have to wait anywhere from 1 to 2 hours in the waiting room for my appointment but do I bitch & moan to you about it? I once had bad food from McDonald's but does that meant that I complain about to every single McDonald's about it?? No! ARGH!!!! Just because I work in retail doesn't mean that I'm less of a person than you.

Speaking of retail, my favorite comic guy at the comic shop moved away this week. It's weird how someone you think has such a small part of your life can make such an impact by not being there. I no longer have someone that gets as excited as I do by seeing minor characters resurface. No one to talk fables/jack of fables with. I switched to my current store after being helped by him one time. He is awesome & never recommended a comic I didn't like. Sadness. I will miss him. :-(

Havn't really been all that excited by the last couple weeks of comics. Random thoughts on them - I am really liking Guardians of the Galaxy. Couldn't they find a better person for Osbornes Avengers to fight? The Polaris cover is hot but let her kick more ass please. When is the next Old Man Logan coming out?!?!?! Getting impatient over here.
