Well, I had hoped that I’d feel better this weekend, and would be able to get out and enjoy the nice weather, but I’m still a bit sick. I’m on antibiotics now, so I’m hopeful that I’ll be over this thing by next weekend. Meanwhile, I think this is going to be another weekend of reading comics, watching TV, drinking herbal tea, and making lentil soup.
I finished all the single issues of Usagi Yojimbo I had, so I’ve read through to issue #125 now. I will likely continue reading the series in trade paperback form from here on. And I may be buying those collections via Dark Horse’s digital store, rather than in physical form. The digital collections are $10 each, which is a little cheaper than the physical books. I also want to pick up 47 Ronin and Yokai.
I’m not sure what I want to read to while away the rest of this afternoon, but I think maybe it’ll be Classic Usagi Yojimbo, which was probably the first thing I bought via the Dark Horse digital store, a few years ago. I realized recently that I’d bought quite a few things from the Dark Horse digital store, but hadn’t actually read any of them yet!

I just updated this blog to WordPress 4.0. There’s a fair amount of new stuff in it, but I don’t know if I’d call it a major release. I did […]
I took a trip into NYC today to visit the Met and MoMA. It worked out pretty well. I got to the Met right around 10am, just after they opened. […]
Yesterday, I decided I wanted to do a system refresh on my Windows 8.1 laptop. This machine is a Lenovo ThinkPad that originally shipped with Windows 7. I’ve since upgraded […]
Keurig — whose business model is to sell you coffee-makers below cost, then make a profit by using the law to force you to drink overpriced, shitty coffee out of it…

I had a little ‘division by zero’ problem myself this week.
Embarrassing to have that happen after so many years of experience…
I’ve been binge-watching old episodes of Poirot (via Amazon Prime) recently. I haven’t seen the early episodes since they first aired, and I probably haven’t see all of them, since […]
