"Post No. 687"

At times like these I wonder if another Ice Age is upon us with snow in 49 of the 50 states; even a foot of it in Dallas. All I do know is that I'm pretty damn sick of it and wish warmer weather would rear its head ASAP as I'm really tired of the freezing temperatures and constant snow every week here still a good five weeks before the official beginning of Spring.

But...I can talk about it all I want. Won't change anything. We just have to wait it out.

In the meantime, I watched both of the "Conan" flicks: Conan the Barbarian(1982), and Conan the Destroyer(1984), recently when I purchased a DVD containing both movies. I've decided that I liked the latter much better. Arnold had gotten more of a feel of the R.E. Howard character by then, the cast was better, the story was better.

In other things...

Some of the modern comic sets I'd kept when I sold the older stuff was the 1990's run of Supergirl, as well as the current one, but I'd missed several issues of the newer title due to not getting to any comic shops in so long. I did, however, win a lot of 20+ issues of that which looks like I'll get at least 10 issues I don't have for the price of what 4 or 5 would have cost me retail, so perhaps I can catch up with what's going on in that book as I always enjoyed it.

Things are picking up a lot in retail where I work, doing 4 times as much today as we did on any other day in the past week. Albeit that many sales were from those husbands that were out buying that last minute Valentine's Day gift for their wifes. (You always see that happen on Christmas Eve as well.)

Not a whole lot more new with me here of late. Just work, work, work as usual. Snow predicted tonight and tomorrow night as well which I hope doesn't result in much as I don't want it to keep me from work.

Stay warm.
