Holiday musings

Last night I told my brother I was planning to put the Christmas tree up today. His response? "Bit early for you, isn't it?"

I need a holiday icon.

I am apparently a very dangerous person to take to Toys 'R Us. Mom & I went a few days ago to get presents for the younger cousins (us old folks don't exchange gifts any more, but we still give the kids stuff ... what a racket!). Thanks mostly to me, we came away with some very cool stuff ("'Big Bucket O' Dinos!' We have to get this!!!"). Thanks mostly to some reserves of willpower I never knew I had (and some very weird looks from my mother), I managed not to come away with a Marvel Comics Nick Fury bobblehead action figure. But it was close. I think possibly this newfound love of comics is getting out of hand ....

Puh-lease, you don't even know. I worked at Toys R Us for seven months in college. I was spending half my paycheck buying toys for everyone I knew (and no, there is not an employee discount. Cheap bastards.)


LOL! If I tell you I have a few thousand comic books stashed around my house will you come and visit?

I believe you. That's why I lasted about 2 months @ my bookstore job.

I just might. *g* Whatcha got?

A whole lot of X-Men, Spiderman, Avengers, Alpha Flight, Teen Titans, Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes..... from the late 70s through the early 90s. Then I decided to start spending a house payment on a house instead of comic books.
