Since I got absolutely no sleep last night, I decided not driving up to Blacksburg was a good plan.  OTOH, I did manage to find some possibilities via Virginia Tech's Off-Campus Housing page as well as some other local property management webpages.

So, since I needed to do some comic book sorting, I did that.  Went through a few hundred issues.  Amazing how much of Terry Moore's "Strangers in Paradise", "Ghost" from Dark Horse Comics, and "The Dreaming" from Vertigo I have.  Not that I've bought anything new in years.  Two happy finds, since I think both are older than me. were my original run "Justice League of America" #7 [The last issue that sold for 10 cents] and DC Comics "The New Inferior 5" #10 whose cover shows some very (hint, hint) Marvelous characters who have just been knocked out by said title characters.  I think Inferior 5 is probably the silliest unlimited series that DC ever did.  Wish I had more than the one issue.

Anyway, I should collapse from exhaustion after going through a few more of the several more hundred comics I still need to sort through and thus be able to rest up enough to get my butt up to Blacksburg tomorrow.  I'd avoid driving by going by *bleck* bus, but Greyhound only goes to Roanoke these days, train service doesn't even come that close, and flying is as bad as bus but more expensive.  So, guess I better rest up tonight for the drive.  Whee.

Gotcha! Thanks for the post, and I've also added you to my friends list, which will probably let you see rather more posts than you'd see otherwise. That may or may not be good....

Eeek, eeek! I've been got! See, I really am sleep-deprived. Thanks for adding me. I've already been amused by one of your recent friend posts, so I think it's a good thing. And, I've vowed, stupidly, to catch up on all my friends LJs at some point. Perhaps after moving would be a good time.

Terry Moore is finally putting SiP to rest. I've been reading it since the Antarctic Press days and after his restarting the series a couple of times, it's definitely time to put it to bed. The soap-opera level has finally overwhelmed it I think.

I was looking at my order for last month when I told B that I was going to cancel my subscription. Then I saw in Previews where it said there were only a couple more issues. Moore canceling the series is actually going to sell us a few more copies than if he'd continued. Damn the completist in me!

Oh, no! Same problem here. Wait, I have an advantage! No money to buy up what I've missed.

Besides, to be perfectly honest, for personal reasons the series tended to make me depressed way too much from early on. If I'd been the only person deciding to buy it or not, I probably would have stopped before it even switched publishers the first time.

OTOH, I am happy with the issues I have of "Paradise Too!". Gee, something about being much more cheerful and happy.
