From Friday night through Sunday evening, duosiceprincess
(AKA: The ComiCutie(tm)) and I rummaged through 21 years of comix, most of which were mine, but several hundred of which have been given to me by the likes of Michael Hart
whenever he or others find them at garage sales.
I've done a little purging before, but never like this. Sara mainly sat on the couch and read The Historian
, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
, Strange Days
, and Enter the DragonMeals Eaten
: Lai Lai Chinese (restaurant), El Toro Mexican (restaurant), Garcia's pizza (restaurant), cereal (home), pasta (home), Mirabelle pastries (home).Total Glasses Bushmill's drunk
: ~3Total Raspberry Smirnoff Ices drunk
: 12Gross Longboxes Purged from My Collection
: ~5 1/2Total Longboxes "Gotten Rid of" (probably to be given to charity)
: ~4Total Longboxes duosiceprincess took as payment
: ~1 1/2
Ummm...I'm sure there are other stats, like how much sleep and how many times we went "Damn, is it really that late?!" but that's all I can think of just this second.
Bonus points for spotting / identifying / mocking comics seen in the pictures. There's some interesting stuff if you look closely. Go here
if you want to be able to click the pics for bigger versions.
And now...( Photographic Evidence. Lots of it. Seriously. )
Now all of my comics are sorted and alphabetized. Next step? Bagging and boarding all the ones that still need it. (Many comics I knew I would be keeping are already bagged and boarded in the longboxes by the fireplace. They will be transfered to shortboxes.).
ULTIMATE CONCLUSION: Sometimes...life is full of awesome.
