Bargains and matinees

Saw Kill Bill, Part Two. Liked it better than the first one, but feel that the two don't fit together into a cohesive whole well at all -- the pacing is so dramatically different from the first to the second.

Went to computer show yesterday, and found a treasure! There was a man there selling remaindered books for 50% off. He had a lot of good things: the hardback Dark Tower series (save for Wizard and Glass), the Alan Lee illustrated Lord of the Rings, some Nigella Lawson titles . . . but he was cash only. :/ What I did buy was the full paperback Sandman series for $90 - the only book it was missing was #3. Would've been $180 for nine of them in the store. See, I've had the hardbacks for years, but I don't read them because I want to keep them in good condition, and some of them are signed. Now I have copies I can read. :) Hurrah!

Have been playing for almost two weeks now, and am still really enjoying City of Heroes.

Off to Sunday breakfast at the bagel place.

Matinees and Old friends
Although I haven't had a chance to see the movie yet, I just had to post when an old friend named MilkmanDan reminded me of a site that I hadn't even thought of in almost three years. Imagine my surprise when I came back to find my journal still active and some *old friends still active in the community!

It's been way too long there Banshee, and we definately need to catch-up sometime soon. If i can only kick my FFXI habit for a bit and post in my journal :)

Just wanted to say hi for now, but expect more to come soon!

Hey it's JdRavnos
Yeah I found this LJ through Milkman Dan as well.

I'm going to see Kill Bill this week. Was going to see it yesterday but that fell through.

Oh and I play on the City of Heroes beta as well. If you see Frostfire, Dace, or Simon the Magus running around the Prime server, that would be me.

Re: Hey it's JdRavnos
JD! How the heck are you? Glad to see you here, and thanks so much for looking my journal up! Will definitely keep an eye out for your characters. Look for Winter Wind (ice blaster) or Tain Derevko (illusionist) on Prime. :)

Hey Banshee, its Lurch. I caught the link to your journal from MilkmanDan on the ol' Nihilistic forums. I'm not currently in the beta for City of Heroes, but I've been waiting for its release to give it a try. Also, now that I'm stationed in Georgia, I can tell you I've definitely gotten to know my grits. :) Every meal has grits poured all over it, and cornbread thrown in for good measure. Looks like they turned me into an unwilling grit fan. :)

Lurch! How are you? Hope they're treating you right, wherever you're stationed. And m'dear, well, military grits are grits, but they're not Plato's ideal state of grits, if you know what I'm saying. ;) Maybe I can someday fix a slightly better representation of grit goodness for you. :D

Delighted to see you post! Gosh, it's great to see so many members of the original VtMR community here.

Regarding City of Heroes, I think we're planning on playing on the Virtue server after release. Let me know what your character name is once you get settled and registered, and I'll look ya up! ;)
