Happy birthday to catrambo and kyburg!

Oi, Bostonians!
Anyone have a small air compressor and a staple gun we can borrow? We have the fabric to recover the dining room chairs, we're getting the foam, all we need is the tools. sindrian will be checking at the Artisan's Asylum, but just in case, anyone have 'em handy?

(I am so excited that we're finally doing this. Our chairs have been shredded for years, and their bedraggled state has been bothering me for that entire time.)

Your Questions, Answered!
Can you please post a link to this? http://p-m-cryan.livejournal.com/62914.html Thank you.
Yes. You're welcome!

Buy you a drink?
Now this is in my head. But yes.

You are taking the perfect trip. Where are you going? How do you travel there? With whom do you go?
I still want to do the felisdemens-and-shadesong weird food tour of the South, but now we need to bring sindrian.

As far as the shining ideal, that changes; sometimes it's a repeat of the Trains of Heaven trip, and sometimes it's me alone in the mountains.

Do you know how one could set about starting an art gallery?
I do not, but perhaps someone reading this knows?

Geek porn parody that most needs to happen, á la Batman?
All of them. But sticking to comics, wow could they get a lot of mileage out of the LSH.

Do you know how much I luuuuurrrrrvvvveeee you?
Approximately as much as I lurrrrrrrrrve you, I reckon! <3

what is your favorite food that you love to eat around the holidays?
Which holidays? For Thanksgiving, woe betide anyone who gets between me and the cornbread stuffing. WOE.

What are your memories of Illya Kuryakin?
I have none. (Had to google that.)

Did you know you're amazing?
I have been told that I am, but really I don't see a substantial difference between me and the other people I know. Except that I'm shorter. I think everyone is amazing.

When are you happiest?
I went grocery shopping yesterday with Adam and sindrian; I wandered off as they were comparing types of bacon, because that can take forever with those two. I looked back at them from down the aisle, and boom, bright shinies. <3 Because they're family, too, now, and it shows even across the room.

I'm happiest with family. And I define family sort of loosely. My chosen family is too large to ever have in the same place at the same time! But I am happiest when I have a room or house full of people I love, who all love each other as well. There's a reason Thanksgiving is my favorite. :)

I was reading articles this morning that made me go AUGH. So I needed a unicorn chaser.

This proved breathtaking. Here. Have some.

From here, shower and then writing time. We didn't get as much cleaning done yesterday as we needed to, so I'm on that when the kid gets home and ends my writing time. Depending on equipment availability, sindrian may be doing the chairs today! Tonight I have BARCC Peer Supe.

Busy week - Wednesday I have Socializing for Justice if I feel like I've gotten enough done, and Thursday I have the BARCC Champions for Change Gala. (No date, alas; no one I know has a spare $150.) (My ticket is free because I'm a volunteer.) First thing Friday morning we leave for PhilCon, and I see my omnisti and s00j, speaking of family! <3

Have a grand time at Philcon.

Two words: Duo Damsel.

Five more: Colossal Boy and Shrinking Violet.

Six more: Chameleon Boy roleplaying. With Sun Boy.

Also, consider this my vote against anything involving Matter Eater Lad.

LSH porn. My head! Odds are it would be better than half the stuff Giffen did. :D

I have staplegun (what do you mean, not everyone does?), but no compressor. :(

I actually adore Giffen's run, and consider it arguably the last great gasp of Bronze Age comics (as well as a great companion piece to later All-Star Squadron/Young All-Stars/Infinity Inc in the "let's fix the continuity clusterfuck that Crisis caused").

While I frankly love my Legion, I thought much of the Giffen stuff read off center. Then again, I am a complete Levitz fanboi, so it may just be overreaction to the tonal differences.

Giffen has always been a better plotter than scripter, in my opinion, though.

I do love the Levitz run (the '80s one), but never quite forgave him for his inability to cope with the fandom love for Polar Boy (writing him like a douche after the character got elected leader was petty). But yeah, so many of my favorite storylines are from his run.

If you do accomplish that weird food tour of the south, try to pencil in a stop in Nashville where I can make some excellent Polish food. Pierogi might be a problem with your gluten requirements, but I'm sure we can come up with something you can eat (stuffed peppers or cabbage? I'd have to read up on the situation).

Don't need an air compressor if you're just repadding and recovering. Just need a staple gun, the old-fashioned "squeeze and chase people down the street" variety, like one of these guys. I recover a lot of chairs.

Oh Illya Kuryakin was gorgeous. One of the main justifications of television.
