Well, it's been a pretty good weekend. Yesterday was a big social day - I met Billy in town in the morning (to swap comics), then we invited some people round to the house to play Magic in the afternoon/evening, which was fun. Then today I went off to a comic marketplace. It was productive, in the sense of plugging some holes in my collection - I now have all but two issues from Peter David's 12 year run on Hulk. And I could have bought one of those today, except that it was £10.50 (presumably due to the Wolverine guest appearance), which seemed a bit excessive. My bank balance took enough of a pounding as it is :) Couple of disappointing aspects of the market though - firstly, that there really were people who matched the stereotype of comic readers, and secondly that there was a stall selling blatantly pirate copies of films (anyone want "X-Men 2" on VHS?). Ah well, you have to take the rough with the smooth. After that, I came home and watched "Spider-Man" (verifying that the tape I got from Ebay was in good condition).

And in today's slice of controversy, I've left some comments in another journal.

So, next up, I need to focus on getting my report sorted out (I need to give a preliminary presentation about my project on Friday).
