I live!
At least, I think I do. The foot is still pins & needles numb, so I'm pretty sure that I'm correct. The codeine is doing more for me this time, so don't be surprised when I start talking about flying purple elephants.

In a case of something that's not a fiction of my codeine, Comics Alliance reports on why the DC blog closed their comments section. *sigh* It's true, as they said, we comics geeks can't have anything nice. Not that I consider the DC blog to be that interesting, but still. DC might have handled this vitriol better. Comics Alliance commenters are reporting that it got shut down due to "hate-filled personal attacks" and "horrible bigoted remarks".

I'd like to say that I wouldn't believe that of my fellow comics fans, but alas; I know them all too well.

I do believe it, am disgusted by it, and I hope this helps explain to people why I'm not the most friendly of people at SDCC or other comics conventions. It disgusts me to repeat how many times I've been creepily hit on, had my shirt looked down, touched, etc. I once snapped at a DC executive for an innocuous question, because right before he stopped to comment on my name tag or shirt (IIRC), I'd just had some douchebag looking down my shirt.

These types of comic geeks so desperately need to clean up, stop objectifying women, and get their priorities straight.

I'd love it if you'd start talking about flying purple elephants. Less depressing. Sigh, geeks.

Thanks, so am I!

It's pretty much what I expected. Except that I have been able to sleep a bit more today, and the pins and needles feels more aggravating than before.

Can't wait for that to go away.

*laugh* So would I! But I no longer get that type of high from codeine for the pain.

I'll think about making something good up, when I'm slightly less loopy.

And, yes, geeks. If you ever go to San Diego Comic Con, you will literally find that there is a smell divide; the media side has a lot of people who know how to bathe. The comic side has a lot of comics geeks who don't. The increase of female participation has helped with this divide, but it has not helped enough.

No good sightings so far. But I have had a pair of purple sleep pants flying around the room. Does that count?

And, yes, it's a very geek based "debate", sad to say.

My fellow geeks need to gain perspective.
