    What a busy day at work! But I got sooo much done, so I'm happy.

    I'm just exhausted, though. Little loud cat spent the night being loud, thus my sleep wasn't that great. He seems to have gotten over whatever that was all about, though.

    Oh, and kilts rock. Just saying.

    I have no interesting links to share at the moment.

    GAIS,

    I gotta get better. Being off work is nice, but if I don't work, I don't get paid. I have a feeling that I'm not progressing as fast as I typically should for taking antibiotics.

    If it isn't, it should be, and I kick myself for not having seen it sooner.

    It is. And FWIW, the character is from... ten years ago? More? I really need to check up on that. The newer material still kicks an unholy amount of ass, and manages to shock even me now and again (and that is some feat).

    This hopefully doesn't sound too pretentious, though it will probably be taken the wrong way by some folks - I am completely "meh" about superheroes. I love, love, love all the old westerns (Gaylord DuBois is a legend, the Gold Key westerns are brilliant, and nearly everything which came out of Fawcett is eminently readable), the mystery stuff is great, and I have a special place in my heart for the early funnies (the successors to the newspaper strip reprints), but superheroes? Nope. Spider-Man (especially late sixties and early seventies) is idiotic beyond words, and Superman (especially so from the mid-fifties on) is utterly unreadable most of the time.

    I suppose it is my own fault for having read all the best stuff first...

    Yes, I did get the drugs yesterday, but I got a whole day's worth of bug killers in my system and usually I feel so much better that morning after and I'm not so much.

    If I'm not improved by tomorrow morning, I'll be visiting the doctor again.


    I probably need a nap too!

    I admit to have fallen by the wayside on reading traditional superhero comics. Most of the American comics I read now are by people like Neil Gaiman, Allan Moore and Mike Carey, although, all of them being British, you could argue that I'm not reading American comics anyway.

    However, there's a lot of excellent non-superhero stuff being put out by American publishers. Fables, The Walking Dead, and whackier stuff like Scott Pilgrim are all very unusual, readable and unsuper-heroish.
