Okay, so I was rewatching the Justice League Unlimited cartoon from last night, and got to thinking — if the wording of Mordred’s spell is to be taken at face value (“I don’t want to see anyone older than me ever again!”) and given that Morgaine Le Fay reveals to the heroes that she’s been taking care of Mordred for “millennia,” wouldn’t that mean the spell would only affect Morgaine, maybe the Demon, and any other immortals that happen to be around? Or am I overthinking it? (Yes, I know, I probably am.)

So, a couple nights ago pals Ian, Dorian, Tom, and I headed for the local sports bar to discuss the forthcoming domination of the comicsweblogosphere by the Associated Comics And Pop Culture Webloggers of Ventura County, CA And Outlying Environs (which is, as always, ACAPCWOVCCAOE for short). Well, okay, we really weren’t discussing that…anyway, Corey was in parts unknown, and Fleshhead was, I don’t know, probably in jail or something, so it wasn’t a full meeting. (And I had to part ways with them early on as it was, given my health has been pretty spotty lately.) But I was thinking…this was the second time I had been in this particular bar. The last time was when I was hanging out with a comics artist that we had at the shop for a signing. He needed a ride back to the airport, which I was giving him, but he wanted to stop at ye olde local sports bar to watch that day’s Big Game. So, yes, I spent the rest of that work day drinking Cokes and watching TV and getting paid for it. That, my friends, is the American dream.

Speaking of work, today I had a customer tell me a couple reasons why he comes to our shop. Reason one was the large back issue selection. Reason two: “the guys behind the counter aren’t creepy.” High praise, indeed.
