Woo for winning.

I'll be in to pick that baby up on Friday.

Bought two mangas there last night, 'Mail' and 'The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service ' and they are some of the best manga I've ever read. If anyone is in to manga/wants to get into manga, I definitely recommend those two books.

Lots of fun last night! I was pretty surprised that I made it all the way to midnight! The peanuty treats and Hefner-look-alike Bill were highlights, along with a comic by Stevie King or something. Seriously, a great read! Any chance you are going to post the pix you took, Bill?

Sam: I've heard good things about The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service... I'll have to check that out.

Hey linnen! Since I have one of those primitive FILM cameras, it will be a little while until I get the pics developed and scanned in... I really gotta get me a digital!

(I still have photos from the Brian Keene/Mike Oliveri/Mike Hawthorne appearance on this same roll.)

Oh, it never even entered my mind that that wasn't a digital camera. Crazy! Am I a technology snob???
