friday night and the lights are low  
good golly LJ is slow this weekend X_X  I guess a whole lot of you are off getting your geek on at Comicon, while others in the BC area may be at Pemberton...  This would be the downside of working primarily on weekends, I suppose.  The likelihood of weekend jaunts is slim.

My touchpad broke.  I'd been concerned about it for a while because sometimes it would randomly freeze, and then all of a sudden, it worked no longer.  Le sigh.  HOWEVER, with this development I discovered that I really like having a mouse again.  It's so much easier to navigate with and listens to me more.  Or something.  In any case, it's much better.

You know what pisses me off? When people aren't happy with the "quality" of the bill they get as change.  This pretentious woman had ten dollars of change coming her way, and it was a bit beat up, but certainly not the worst tenner I'd ever seen, and she looks at me disdainfully and says in a snooty voice "isn't there a better bill back there?" Ugh, I wanted to snap at her "no".  WTF, lady.  Money is money is money.  Gah.

I've tried 4 book stores for a copy of The Watchmen but all of them 1) are sold out, 2) have all copies on hold, 3) have all copies mislaid (aka: stolen).  Poop.  I think it's pretty weird, actually, what with the movie coming out.  A guy at one of the Chapters I went to did say that it was a book they always had coming in, but that was also the location with all the "mislaid" copies too, so... I'm not sure.  I'm bummed though.  I was excited this weekend for getting to finally read it.

The comic book section at my store makes me cry a bit. We just had a maaaassive theft (they stole Sandman! *flail*) and it makes me so paranoid now. And aww, you could always order it if you really can't find it. I have to read it before the movie comes out too, since it looked awesome.

I don't get the money thing either. Aren't you just going to spend it anyway? I mean, I get people not wanting it if it's completely falling apart, but really ...

O_O! Nuuuu theft of Sandman! EV0L. well. Theft in general is ev0l but still. Couldn't they take something crappier? Like... Superman or something? N/O to people who love Superman *_* ANYWAYS... yeah, I may break down and order it, but I'm gunna poke around a bit first to see if I can just dig up a copy.

Exactly! Even if it's completely falling apart, that's what tape is for IMO. And they'd just be getting rid of it anyways. Blech.

My friend wanted to check out Watchmen before the film, too, so I went with her to our comic book store but they were also sold out. ;_; And I've never ever EVER seen that store without a requisite copy of Watchmen on their shelves! It was eerie, man.

Maybe everyone is off getting it because the hype for the movie is starting.

That must be it, but I thought that most people (having not already read Watchmen, I mean) were still a bit in the dark about Watchmen since the trailer -just- came out. But I must be mistaken =/
