Colleen took a turn for the worse yesterday between breakfast, which she nibbled at, and lunch, by which time she was very "out of it" and apparently in pain (although I think some of that may have been pure frustration when she couldn't find words.
Apparently a severe infection can have that effect, and can strike quickly -- this is apparently a lot like toxic shock. She has at least three highly-resistant superbugs -- they identified the third this morning.
The kids are coming to visit Saturday -- the soonest they could get here.
Colleen is a stubborn old cat, though. Wish her luck.
However, I'm on board for the end of Aaron's run, so let's see how it goes.
In #1, there were two major character deaths (one of them is here). However, it's a "comic book death"
( Back with a vengeance )
And, ( spinning off from War of the Realms )
"Superheroes can be violent monsters.” Of all the things Watchmen does, it is by far the least interesting, and the worst thing it did to the medium. It’s not Watchmen’s fault, of course, as you can’t help what people take from you… but what Moore described as a bad mood he had one year becoming a primary aesthetic for a long time is pretty depressing.
So let’s do it for an issue, eh? That makes sense.
Now I said the first issue was kind of the Ellis issue, and the second issue was the Morrison issue. But when I say all of the above, I surely can’t say a name for whose issue this is.
Well, yeah, it’s probably unwise, but f*ck it. Like last issue wasn’t just Morrison, this issue isn’t any one name, but I did have an internal codename for it. I don’t want to write a bad issue, and to show the thread of the influence, I can nod to the very best from that tradition. If I want to do operatic, horrible, imaginative superhero throwdowns I have to homage the best – in which case, this is the Mark Millar issue.

Now they're claiming it was a coding glitch. How utterly stupid does Zuckerberg think people are?
