Gr, new Blogger... I sure hope this shit works with Opera (unlike nearly every other god damn thing that Google does....) I really hate being forced into something new that I didn't ask for... (edited to say, it's frozen on "publishing" in Opera, but it published fine when I open up IE... plus I should title the post, huh?)
I held off on posting the shipping list because I wanted Graeme's Spider-Spunk on the top of the page, but the time has come (as it were)
In our happy personal news, Ben is a Big Boy now, and HUZZAH, is now pooping in the potty. If you don't have kids, you don't get it, but man, have I been waiting for this day. The boy has been, let's face it, lazy about the whole process -- he has had complete control of his body functions for at least a year -- no accidents, peeing on command, but he's always been insisting to still poop in a diaper. So, big big change, and, best part? He came to it on his own, without any real action from us.
I'm VERY VERY proud of him.
(plus, WOO HOO, this is like $30 a month in diapers saved, yes!!)
Happy Sweeties Day to you and yours -- I know it's a made-up holiday by card companies and whatever, but it has long been the Hibbs household's National Holiday. Because we're sappy like that.

Also, for RJ, I'm mediocre on the Asshat, unless it's really egregious, but, yep, egregious as fuck this week, so here's your ASSHAT OF THE WEEK:
HELLSHOCK DEFINITIVE ED VOL 1 TP This has a MAY05 code, which makes it NINETEEN MONTHS late. Holy mother of god!!! THANK YOU DYNAMIC FORCES!!!!!
(This is among the many many reasons I am *thrilled* THE BOYS is moving to DE. Nick's got a great rep [and from what I hear ABSOLUTELY EARNED] from the creative community. But to retailers? He's a MASSIVE FLAMING PAIN IN MY ASS. Not to mention the huge hit to profitibility that the move brings -- 5% on front list, plus the additional 3% Diamond levies on backlist -- there goes 15% of my profit on the TP orders that we got from DC, or would have gotten from Marvel or Image....)
Anyway, I should be finishing off my BookScan column for TILTING (to run Friday -- Christ, I'm sitting at 8500 words!), so back to the grindstone...
What looks good to you this week?
