Seven interesting things about me…. hmmm… I guess this is a relative question but here goes.

  1. The first comic I ever remember buying new was a Wonder Woman comic, but I didn’t end up liking it very much.  I just couldn’t understand why the Amazons didn’t want to fall in love with a man and live happily ever after.  They seemed to be a bunch of hateful weirdoes to me.
  2.  I voted in the infamous should we kill Robin poll, but because I was a little kid I was confused because I thought the Robin they were going to kill was Dick Grayson.
  3. I constantly check to make sure that the house doors are locked and that I haven’t left the stove on, if the thought crosses my mind while I’m in bed I have to get up and check or I absolutely cannot sleep.
  4. When I was a kid I would sometimes sleepwalk, and once woke up in the middle of the night laying down in the woods behind our house.  Terrifying.
  5. In grade school when my class went to Atlanta for a field trip I ditched my group, and went to the museum of natural science by myself… nobody noticed and I met back up with them at the meet up spot without a hitch…  sometimes I’m amazed I’m still alive.
  6. I’m kind of minimalist about clothing.  I only own like 4 pairs of blue jeans and a few pair of really comfortable shoes.  I have a good many shirts like superhero t-shirts I’ve collected but own only two dress up outfits — one suitable for funerals and one suitable for weddings.
  7. I love big, juicy historical romance novels that are set in the regency era, the less politically correct they are the better.

Well, that was all I could really think about saying about myself.  I don’t really know who to tag for this but if you read this and you like to do it please consider yourself tagged by me, and enjoy! 🙂

Ben and Jerry Book Tag

Earlier this week I was tagged by theorangutanlibrarian to do this Ben and Jerry Book Tag.  I wasn’t sure if I was up to the task or not but it seemed like a fun idea, so I thought I’d try it.  🙂  I decided to keep my answers in theme with my blog which is primarily dedicated to comics, manga, and the like.  This is my first time doing something like this but hopefully I understand how to do it right… you’ll have to let me know if I screwed it up.

VANILLA CARAMEL FUDGE: PICK A LIGHT, FLUFFY CONTEMPORARY

439363

Love★Com, Vol. 1 by Aya Nakahara – The often amusing misadventures and eventual romance of a tall girl and a short boy. Contemporaries aren’t my go to genre but this one is a favorite for it’s humor and sweetness.

MINT CHOCOLATE COOKIE: A NEW RELEASE THAT YOU WISH EVERYBODY WOULD READ

23505378

Grayson, Vol 1: Agents of Spyral by Tom King, Tim Seeley – Spinning out of events in Batman Inc. and Forever Evil this volume marks a turning point in the direction of the life of the original Robin.  Dick Grayson is my favorite character and I’ve followed him through thick and thin.  This newest chapter in Grayson’s story has been growing on me as it progresses.

CHERRY GARCIA: AN ENDING THAT WAS BITTERSWEET

25104

The Sandman, Vol. 10: The Wake by Neil Gaiman – Oh, so bittersweet and strange.  Do dreams die?  The last collected volume of the original Sandan run.  This masterpiece will need to be read from beginning to end to be fully appreciated.

STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE: A BOOK CONTAINING YOUR OTP OF OTPS

568592

Fushigi Yûgi: The Mysterious Play, Vol. 01: Priestess by Yuu Watase – This was a hard decision but the epic love story of Miaka and Tamahome is among one of my most beloved One True Pairings.  This is also one of the first manga that I can remember ever reading.

MILK AND COOKIES: TWO AUTHORS THAT IF THEY COLLABORATED, THEY WOULD GO PERFECTLY TOGETHER

geoff_johns_color_0ed-brubaker

Geoff Johns and Ed Brubaker – Both of these guys have done fantastic work breathing new life into old characters.  I don’t know if these guys have ever worked together or not.

BOSTON CREAM PIE: A BOOK THAT HAD YOU TURNING YOUR PAGES LATE INTO THE NIGHT

23012556

Forever Evil by Geoff Johns, David Finch, Richard Friend – This was the story that promised the final fate of Dick Grayson.  I hung on pins and needles for fear that my favorite character would be killed off in this storyline.

CHOCOLATE THERAPY: A BOOK THAT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER AFTER A LONG DAY OF LIFE

23017960

Legendary Star-Lord, Vol. 1: Face It, I Rule by Sam Humphries, Paco Medina – The height of escapist fiction and it doesn’t hurt that the storylines include my favorite Marvel character Kitty Pryde.

COFFEE, COFFEE, BUZZBUZZBUZZ!: A BOOK NOT YET RELEASED THAT YOU CAN’T WAIT TO GET YOUR HANDS ON
