Looks like I won’t be making an addition to the pack after all. That dog in search of a good home apparently found one. He (and his sister) will be moving in with what I heard is a very nice family. I have mixed emotions. On the one hand, I’m glad he’s going somewhere where he’ll be well taken care of but, on the other hand, it would’ve been nice…
Think I’ll field some questions and comments…
Today’s entry is dedicated to blog regular Paloosa.
Shiny writes: “I really enjoyed the Capn’ America movie.”
Answer: Haven’t seen it yet but heard mixed reviews. Word of mouth was much better on the Thor movie. I’ve been toying with the idea of watching every Marvel/DC superhero movie ever made, the good (Spiderman), the bad (Daredevil, Catwoman), and the ugly (the original Punisher movie with Dolph) and then having Cookie Monster and/or Baron Destructo rank and review.
Zed of Earth writes: “In its original form, Bill 101 banned languages other than French on commercial signs, said that Bills of Parliament be enacted only in French, made French the language of the workplace in companies with more than 50 people, and so on. The Bill has been altered and challenged and changed since, but it’s still quite draconian, and leads to such silliness as 15 000 Dunkin’ Donuts bags being seized, Merry Christmas signs being ordered to be removed, and a delicatessen, Schwartz’s, being told that the apostrophe in its sign was illegal.”
Answer: Don’t forget the Office’s investigation into the unilingual English-speaking pet store parrot.
Keith Logan writes: “I am enjoying Justice League Dark, featuring many of DC’s magic-related characters (Constantine, Zatanna, etc).”
Answer: Got it. How does it compare to Shadowpact, another series that focused on magic-related characters?
Christoffer Grandin writes: “As for comic book recommendations, I have only one. The new Batwoman.”
Answer: Picked it up as well. Looking forward to checking it out.
dasndanger writes: “Joe, Marvel is cancelling a lot of titles right now – not sure if they’re gearing up for a total revamp like DC just undertook, or what. In other words, don’t get too attached to anything right now.”
Answer: Any ideas which title are on the chopping block?
dasndanger also writes: “As far as comics are concerned, the only ones I’m reading regularly is Uncanny X-Force, and Elric.”
Answer: No Wolverine/Jason Aaron? Qu’est-ce qu’il ce pas?
dasndager also writes: “The Six Gun, Chew, Locke and Key.”
Answer: Not familiar with The Six Gun. Who’s the publisher? Tried both Chew and Locke and Key. The latter wasn’t for me but I’m really enjoying Chew.
vickietaylor writes: “How’s that novel coming?”
Answer: Alas, it’s not. A couple of other projects have bumped it from the top of my to-do list.
Mike A. writes: “So, did you buy each of the “New 52″?”
Answer: Yep. I’m going to wait until I have the first three issues of each before I sit down to read ’em.
Bloomgate writes: “Hey Joe! I saw this and immediately thought of you. It’s the desert of choice of Billy and the Boingers…
Answer: Thanks for this! I’m going to test it out later this week, then start playing mix and match with the contents of my replete liquor cabinet!
Maggiemayday writes: “Have you never watched TV in Japan? That’s where American celebs make their pocket cash.”
Answer: Yes. Last time I was in Tokyo, I watched Tommy Lee Jones sell iced coffee.
Airelle writes: “Is the back deck all done, ready for grill?”
Answer: Almost. Just need to install the railing and then I’ll be out there, in 3 degree weather, barbecuing!
Nola Shingledecker writes: “How could you NOT go with Romo???”
Answer: The Redskins’ defense is actually very good, and the Broncos’ defenses…isn’t. The only thing I hadn’t banked on was Sanchez stinkin’ up the joint.
for the love of Beckett writes: “Hurray, Maximus! How is he today, and the rest of the Frisky Four?”
Answer: All doing well, thanks for asking.
