Hey chums!
How goes it?
Thought I'd pop in and say hello.
I'm three weeks into this course now and it's wrecking me!
Intensive doesn't even begin to describe it.
Almost dropped after a week, but remembered that it had cost me three grand and thought better of it.
Anyway, I'm broke and tired and still gutted that I've had to cancel my standing order with Gosh!
Truth is I have neither the funds or time to be reading comics at the moment, but fuck my old boots I'm missing them.
Course ends in late January. Hopefully I'll get some work soon after and be able to resume my expensive comics habit.
Until then...

PS I seem to have been hit with a rush of spam posts in the comments section of late so I've decided to opt for the password protected comments from now on. Not something I want to do, but I'm a bit tired of all the meds and porn crap that keeps getting posted.

Very Briefly

A fine time yesterday! I hit up the mart early and garnered the usual mounds of tat. Then an afternoon spent mooching around EVERY single one of the West End's comic shops INCLUDING the Used Record and Tape Exchange on Berwick Street. Great stuff.

From there I met up with John Bishop for a bit of Chinese at my favourite China Town restaurant, Mr Kong's and then to The Pillars of Hercules for Dave F's NerDgasm 7. In attendance beside me and John B, were Mike Leader, Joe Ewens and hitherto unknown LLC reader Dexter who also bought along his pal John, a man who knew fuck all about comics or SF but did answer a WWF question that nobody else knew - Top men both of them. Great to meet you lads.

We came second winning a pack of Star Wars Top Trumps and some Star Wars pants which we gave away to the team who donated me the Spider-Man aftershave at the last event.

Now, to the not so fine news. I apologise to all those who were expecting a more detailed mart or quiz report, but today I started a full-time course of study which is going to take absolutely all my time and energy for the next five months. It's highly likely that this blog will get a wee bit wheezy in that time. I don't intend for it to slope off and die or anything, but I'm pretty sure content will be LOW. Sorry about that, but I have to hit the books harder than the comics for a while.

Normal service will be resumed some time in January.
