Non-Sequitur #53: Outside It’s Cold It’s Misty And It’s Raining

It got up to like 80 degrees this week, but today it's 20 degrees cooler and miserable out. Tha's ok, summer's coming soon.

Nothing, I just like saying “Golf-Shirty”

I didn’t work the other day, but I did go to my job to pick up my check. I wore a red pull over shirt with a collar and a navy blue horizontal stripe across the chest. The lady who’s kind of the receptionist there said that I looked  very “golf-shirty”. That’s going to be my new nick-mane…Golf Shirty Ed.

My job is keeping me healthy

Got more free food from work. This time it was two heads of lettuce and some celery. Wait, what?

Middle-Aged Man makes himself a meal

So, yeah…I made myself a big salad. It had lettuce, tomato, cheese, onion, cucumbers, hard boiled eggs and salad dressing (ok it was really mayo). It was delicious and I topped it off with a nice glass of beer ( ok it was really a 24 once can of malt liquor, shut up I’m eating healthy).http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVWRU3KqUfc

Jerk bought some comics

Secret Avengers # 23: Story by Rick Remender is pretty decent. I’m interested in the struggles of Antman here and what might happen in the hidden “robot” city. I wished I liked the art more. Gabriel Hardman is a decent penciler, but it might be a little too down to earth for this type of superhero comic. It’s just a wee too sketchy. I might like it more on a horror or crime comic.

Avengers #24:   I didn’t plan on buying this comic. I haven’t been reading it all. However, the comic I planned to get was sold out and the Daniel Acuna  art caught my eye. It’s actually not bad. Acuna’s art is very lovely. BUT the way the bad guy gets defeated here is exactly the same way the bad guy got defeated in New Avengers Annual #1. Both bad guys have exactly the same powers. Both comics were written Brian Michael Bendis.  I’m  just saying…

Children’s Crusade #9:    Very  very nice art, but a very anti-climatic story. It felt like, “Sorry we have to stop now, but there’s a big event coming that has all these same characters in it, so we’re going to stop here with no real resolution.”

Dammit! The weather lady just said it’s going to get cold again next week. Dern it!

Non-Sequitur #48: It’s All Gonna Be A Stone Gas

Don Cornelius passed away.

More free food at work

Another co-worker had a birthday. My supervisor made fudge. I only ate two small pieces, so I did not get fat this week. Take that, gluttony!

Tom Brady and Eli Manning are giving me the finger

In the past, there’s been times when I was super excited about the Superbowl and there’s been times when I was happy about one team and apathetic towards the other. Then there was times where I didn’t care about either team, but was enthusiastic about the event. This is the first time I am super indifferent about the whole thing. That probably says more about me than it does about this past football season. I am a bad sports fan and hence, a bad Chicagoan. I suck.

I bought some comics and few of them I actually read…

Archie #629:  This one is a little better than last issue, mostly because the storytelling is clearer. Kiss returns Archie from a zombie back into his normal human form. The band explains what the zany monsters are up to and what will happen if they take over. Funniest moment that’s funny because it’s not funny: Kevin Keller shows up near the end of the issue and chases zombies away by playing loud music on an old boombox. A boombox! Do teenagers still walk around with boomboxes these days? Still, this issue was more fun than last.

Secret Avengers #21.1 : A so called “jumping on” point featuring Captain America and Hawkeye. The story is ok and the art is alright.  Decent for what it was, I just had a problem with Cap feeling that after all their time together, now all of a sudden he needed to “test”  Clint.

Defenders #3: Fun!  Story by Matt Fraction…in  this issue Null, The Breaker of Worlds is dealt with, but we are left with a neat cliff hanger for the next chapter. The Silver Surfer gets a cool moment. We get a hint of the true nature of Prester John ( I have old Defenders comics from the 70’s so I think I get it). The art by Terry and Rachel Dodson is fine throughout. I’m looking forward to the next issue.

That’s all I got for now. See ya, next time!
