What did I used to do with all this free time in the evenings???

I feel considerably better after spending an evening having a nice dinner and watching ‘Prisoner of Azkaban’ with , , and . Socializing is healthy. I just wish was home from work. It’s 12:53am, and I’m sleepy, but I want to make sure he gets home okay.

Holy Crap. I’ve been wondering what I used to do at home by myself in the evenings before I moved in with Justin, other than reading and watching Buffy. When I started looking through old school papers, I found this crazy mad huge webcomix listing. I used to read a whole helluva lot of webcomix on a daily basis.

Achewood, continuing to be weird, remains my favorite. I *totally covet* the hardcover copies you can buy on the internet, particularly ‘Volume I – A Momentary Diversion on the Road to the Grave’ and ‘Volume II – Worst Song, Played on Ugliest Guitar’

  2. What did I used to do with all this free time in the evenings???

    You used to spend a healthy portion of it either at the Foxes Den or watching DVDs with me 🙂

    Which remind me… I have still only seen bits and pieces (sadly out of order) of Firefly. Perhaps we could get together and rectify that sometime? (unless you’re sick of it).

  3. And when she wasn’t watching them with you, she was watching them with me. Or playing War of the Monsters on my PS2 (“Give me back my FUTON!”)

    Anyway, I can’t imagine Moira getting sick of Firefly. Now that the movie’s been delayed (not a good sign, folks), she’ll have to feed that fever some other way.

    Are you listening Moira???
