Dead Dog Cat


So, a couple of days ago, I finished:

Sharpe's Companion: The Early Years. It's not written by Bernard Cornwell, but by a major in the British military. The book reviews several books of the Sharpe saga, following in "chronological" order, rather than order of release. It's filled with interesting tidbits, and clarifications about the history of the period. I'd recommend it for anyone reading the series.

I managed to find and read 4 comics. I'd been promised a couple of comics by a good friend, but he has yet to find them, and I just couldn't pass up a sale at a local comic store (50% off of back list comics), so I picked up one of the two, and read two issues of Supreme Power (#14 - 15), written by JMS. I do like his work in this comic, even though generally I don't like "superhero" comics. This series seems well-worth the effort to find and read. I also dug out a couple more....but I'm at work, and I can't recall what they were....I guess I'll have to post about that another time.

Over the weekend, we had a house-guest, Nathan, and a visit by Spencer. Both of them spent time riding horseback with forestcats to her delight. It turned out that Spencer had never seen Star Wars: Episode II, but was intending to see Episode III, so, being a nice guy, I put on the DVD for her enjoyment. She found the Yoda/Dooku lightsaber duel silly...
Later, that same day, Nathan, a younger fellow, admitted to us that he'd never seen The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Through the Eighth Dimension which my spouse and I consider to be a classic. Out came the DVD, and he told us afterwards that he'd enjoyed it as well. (Grin)

It's been stressful this week, and I've been sporting a headache pretty much all week; I try to avoid medicating myself, but I may be forced to try something later today.
