Read another Mr. A story. I kind of love this stuff in that lulzy way that you're not supposed to love Objectivist stories because Objectivism is SERIOUS BIZNESS and all that. BUT I CAN'T HELP IT. The huge speeches! The OMG IRONIC character names! The strawvillains with their thought processes and character motivations that make NO SENSE WHATSOEVER! It is wonderful, you guys! Wonderful! Why do I keep using explanation points?

Also, the recent story made me revise my opinion of Mr. A as one of those guys who are an average lover but are convinced that you sucking their dick is the best thing that ever happened to you. Nah, I was too hasty: He is a big, stonking VIRGIN. More on this later. Possibly with pictures.

I bought Darwyn Cooke's Will Eisner's The Spirit (hee) Vol. 1 today at the local comic book store, as well as bit the bullet and special ordered Earth X. (Yes, I know the latter isn't good but ... look, I have my reasons. Leave me alone!) Then I got in a fifteen-minute talk with the (female) store owner about a lot of different comics, most of them centering around Alan Moore's work and Obama's guest appearances. (She also tells me I'm far too prejudiced against 300 and it's really good even if a lot of Miller's stuff is crap.) I really liked talking with her, but I was worry I'm being THAT GUY (only a female version) when I do this. At least I had enough foresight not to talk about fanfiction.

Speaking of Miller's crap, I don't want to read ASBAR, but I have to say I really love All-Star Batgirl's costume. Like, I love it so much I might want this action figure. I mean, it has adorable little charms. Come on! There's no sin in liking adorable little charms, is there? :-(

I finally passed the 700-page mark in Dickens. Now only the 800-page mark, 900-page mark, 1,000-page mark and done mark to go. [sigh] Is he going to have his affair yet, Ackroyd? Oh, I'm sorry, his NOT-AFFAIR where he left his wife for a 17-year-old who he didn't have sex with and they just, like, hung out and stuff because he adored her too much to have sex with her despite having 10 kids plus miscarriages with his ex-wife. (BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUULLSHIT.) At least something will happen. I'm tiring of hearing about his boring work on newspapers and where he went on vacation.

Points of View has some truly kickass stories despite having Alice Munro. The last few I read were just un-putdownable. "Act of Faith" and "Doby's Gone" especially.

Okay, I'm going to be late. Got to run.
