Re: who would be your fave Nightcrawler and any X-women coup

I'm not suggesting this as a romantic pairing necessarily, but it would be interesting to see how Firestar interracts with Kurt.

Re: Amazing X-Men

Did you notice that they apparently can't remember when Kurt died? Heh.

Anyway, I wrote a little review here.

Re: Untold Stories from Iraq and Afghanistan

Well, here's another opportunity to pick up a copy of Untold Stories from Iraq and Afghanistan and do even some more good in the process. Heroes Fallen Studios is now doing a Kickstarter campaign to help get a two-volume set of stories from the Korean War to print, and guess what one of the rewards ...

Re: this coffee tastes like ass

Okay, so I just found out my paycheck will not be affected by the shutdown. However, I'm not certain if I'll be able to keep that job. The long commute's murder on my bad hip. Speaking of that, I'll be starting cortizone shots as soon as we sort out all the legal crap regarding insurance. Until then...

Re: this coffee tastes like ass

My husband and all his coworkers are on edge because the government shutdown means they'll get furloughed if it drags on. Similarly, I may have to settle for doing my job without pay on account of having patients on Medicaid.

I did! He signed my compendium of the Spider-man newspaper comic strip, and- because he did not have his copy of "Untold Stories from Iraq and Afghanistan" with him, I signed a poster for one of my other military history comics for him.

In the comics, Kurt's birthday has always been November 11. It's because it's Dave Cockrum's birthday.

Re: this coffee tastes like ass

A couple of weeks ago, my car's radiator died. The tow and replacement cost a few hundred dollars. Last week, my refrigerator died. Replacing it cost another few hundred dollars. Then today, one of our kittens limped in with a hind leg I strongly (and correctly) suspected was broken. That'll be anot...

Re: Nightcrawler Returns -- Inhumanity by Matt Fraction

Unlikely, given that Aaron's established that Kurt's at least visited Heaven, got some heavenly new threads, and even drank some heavenly beer. Even if I weren't religious, to then turn around and say, "Whoops! Kurt's been in Hell the whole time," would strike me as very poor writing and a horrible...

What's most interesting to me is... if they go out of their way to prove Azazel is actually from Hell... then it appears Kurt may have been stuck THERE with his FATHER the whole time.

Just saw the neatest example of traditions blending at a local celebration of St. Kateri's Day- Catholic Mass in three languages, smudging and honor songs, prayers by both the priest and the sundance chief, and yes, the priest also wore a ribbon shirt and moccasins. Then after the water blessing, we...

So it's the semi-anniversary of my brush with death, and how do I mark the occasion? I had hoped to be celebrating my "Alive Day." Instead, I was plagued with flashbacks, found out my job (a day job that I actually loved!) was letting me go, and ended up having to call a crisis line because my couns...

Re: this coffee tastes like ass

Speaking of parenthood woes, my daughter woke up with a fever and complaints of neck pain. Thankfully, she felt relief with some ibuprofen and an ice pack to the back of her neck, otherwise, I'd be at the hospital instead of at home posting this.

Re: Help in writing Nightcrawler's speech habits

Professional editors I know tend to not favor phonetically writing out accents, and some even shy away from using regional dialects that the average Anglophone may have trouble understanding. Having had great difficulty understanding the works of Flannery O'Connor, I can understand that point of vie...
