My poor sweety

My husband has been working overtime since April.

A little after 7 I noticed he had disappeared.  He was laying on the bed with the dogs sleeping.  From his position, it doesn’t look like he meant to be sleeping.  I checked to make sure he wasn’t sick, and put him to bed.

It has been a bit of a rough summer.

 He examined his conscience. It said: I’m out of options. Please yourself.

 He wondered how old the tower really was. Older than the University, certainly. Older than the city, which had formed about it like scree around a mountain. Maybe older than geography. There had been a time when the continents were different, Rincewind understood, and then they’d sort of shuffled more comfortably together like puppies in a basket. Perhaps the tower had been washed up on the waves of rock, from somewhere else. Maybe it had been there before the Disc itself, but Rincewind didn’t like to consider that, because it raised uncomfortable questions about who built it and what for.

 Well, everything, for a start. It was unthinkable that the Library should be burned. It was the largest accumulation of magic on the Disc. It underpinned wizardry. Every spell ever used was written down in it somewhere. Burning them was, was, was …

 Anyone watching would have seen Rincewind dart backwards and forwards across the shimmering heaps, scrabbling desperately among them, throwing aside charred furniture, pulling aside lumps of fallen roof with less than superhuman strength.

We just signed up three days ago (hit head against wall.) Pete LOVES it. I’m looking forward to reading ALL the Xmen comics. I think we’re going to get a years subscription.
Thank you. ;-)  Careful with your head.
X-men is the one comic I have plenty of.  Back in college I bought the 40 years of X-men DVD (with 485 comics).
I keep trying to find a list of the comics included, but there doesn’t seem to be one.  Do you know if there is a lot of Hawkeye and/or Black Widow?

 Rincewind had always been rather proud of the fact that he always felt alone, even in the teeming city, but it was even worse being alone when he was by himself.

Marrying young is not the end of my freedom. It means I want to travel and see the world, but with her by my side. It means I still like drinking in bars and dancing in clubs, but stumbling home with her at 2am and eating pizza in our underwear. It means I know that I want to kiss those lips every morning, and every night before bed. If you see marriage as the end of your ‘freedom’, you’re doing it wrong.

this is perfect

Exactly!

 Wizards don’t like philosophy very much. As far as they are concerned, one hand clapping makes a noise like ‘cl’.

Does anyone out there have Marvel Unlimited?

How do you like it?

I’m thinking about getting it. There is a deal going on right now.

There is only one word to describe the end of Out of Oz for me…..

I keep putting off reading Out of Oz. I’m just not sure I am ready to go through the feels. I keep telling myself I have to reread the rest of the series first to put it off…

 Wizards aren’t allowed to have wives but they are allowed to have parents, and many of them go back to the old home town for Hogswatch Night or Soul Cake Thursday, for a bit of a sing-song and the heart-warming sight of all their boyhood bullies hurriedly avoiding them in the street.
