I am back!

I am back from the wilds of Kittyville!

Fun times were had by all. Alcohol and delicious foods were consumed in abundance. [livejournal.com profile] suki_blue was lunched with and, let me tell you all, she is an sneaky enabling enabler! Thanks to her evil evil evil generous nature, I now have in my possession ~60 Justice League of America comic books, plus two starring The Flash, all canon for the ficcing. (Also, a deepening curiosity about Dick.)

And thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kitty_poker1's generous hubby (and live-in masterchef), I also have 50 more of The Flash in digitised form, and a whole bunch of Batman movies. (Oh, and five seasons of Two and a Half Men. So silly, but oddly addictive.)

The journey out was easy enough: smooth ride, easily made connections, with only a minor hiccup in that Google maps lie about where Fenchurch Street Station is! *writes them a stern but educational email*

Then, on the way back, I got onto a Circle Line tube train at Tower Hill, aiming for Paddington, and was mildly amused that my MP3 player random-shuffled its way to Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street just as we pulled into Baker Street station.

Sadly, the amusement was shortlived. As we pulled out of the station, it was announced that the train I was on was no longer a Circle Line train and that all people who got on it expecting to actually get to their Circle Line destinations should get off at the next station because it was being hijacked by TPTB to go to Hammersmith instead. I didn't even know they could do that! But, a connection was found and I managed to get myself all the way to Paddington (the very next station on the Circle Line) without getting lost... much.

And all that excitement has worn me out, so now I will relax and start digging through everything that's piled up in my absence: 200 emails, a flist of skip=bajillionty, and an answering machine full of aural spam. Tis a hard life, indeed.

So... what have you all been upto?

ETA: I came this > < close to buying a netbook. I was petting it and reaching for the plastic. I managed to escape uncharged but I fear tis only a matter of time...

OMG Missed you so much, so glad you are back.

My nights are so weird when you are not on the other side of my YIM connection.

But I'm not codependent or anything. :D

Heeeeeee! ^^^pets^^^

I got to wander the net anonymously, but I really did miss those yim windows lurking in the corners of my screen. Hence the aaaaaaaaaalmost-got-a-netbook incident. (So small! So preety! So cute!)

Hi! So glad to hear you all had fun (not that there was ever any doubt!)

Also, a deepening curiosity about Dick.
*smothers hysterical laughter* wha? it's funny!

Wow... all those comics, eps... you are so screwed enabled! *laughs*

Oh, I know it! The old guys at the table next to ours kept twitching and looking over when we got too loud when talking about Dick and Deathstroke and Nightwing and porn. :D

As for the "enabling", not only do I have all the goodies they provided, I also have seasons 3-5 of Justice League cartoons to watch (I already watched S1&2), and a bunch of Batman comics and story arcs. There are so many different continuities! *brain explodes just thinking about them*

I've done my homework though, so I know that in DC fandom it's acceptable to choose a continuity/canon that suits you and set up camp there. So... in the comics there's a wife and twin bebes, which means I'm choosing cartoon canon as my base and then cherry-picking the comics for random factoids and plotlines and anything else I decide is worth stealing. :D

You could always kill the wife off. Evol? Nah, bet your arse I kill off Hotch's wide in my first Criminal Minds fic. Uh, he's still married by season 4, yes? No, don't tell me! :oD

Hee! depending on my timeline, I could always just not bring her back when someone else does the dirty work for me. *g*

*buttons lip to keep the secret of the state of Hotch's marriage* :D

Serial killers can be such useful plot points, but then so can divorce attorneys. ;)

12 is a very appropriate age for snickering at discussing Dick. :D

My boyfriend has been panting after netbooks for a while too, but yesterday he changed his mind and bought some brand new laptop dell just put out.

Umm... that's all, really. I'm glad you had such a good time. :)

Hee! Thanks!

Netbooks are so tiny and wee and shiny! But laptops also have their own allure. But usually higher prices too. I hope your bf's happy with his choice!

WotW only has 9 days to go! What? It's an improvement on 21, 22, 23, 24... *g*

So glad you made it home safely! Of course there had to be minor travelling hitches - it's traditional.

I came this > < close to buying a netbook.

Next time I see you, I firmly expect to see one of the babies welded to your hand. A pink one? :P

Lovely to have you again, hon! So. Much. Fun. *smoooochies*

Definitely a possibility. And only two months till we see each other again! *bounces*

I had wonderful fun. Tell your beloved I really really miss his cooking. (Yours too, of course! *g*)

I've started reading my comics, and last night I watched the Batman-Superman movie and Batman: Gotham Knight, two of the animated movies he provided to help enable my new addiction. EEEEEE!

It's good. Dark and gritty, with a nice slice of Bruce's past when he's out in the world, finding his mojo. ;)

I has Batflash icons! ♥ [livejournal.com profile] literati for putting up with my 'While you're making Reid/Morgan icons...'. :D

And those Reid?Morgan icons are very pretty, but I'm sure you'll be seeing them soon enough, if you haven't already.

I am always happy to enable ~grin~

(Also, a deepening curiosity about Dick.)

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!! He's a very important person in Bruce's life, and Wally's, especially when they were in the Teen Titans together.

Speaking of which, I have a comic rec for you. Teen Titans Year 1. It was a 6 part series that came out last year. It's a toony re-telling of how the TT got together. It's got grumpy!Batman, little!Dick and baby!punning!Wally! I can upload them for you if you're interested. Look how cute Wally is as Kid Flash! ~points to icon~

Oh, YES PLIS! I've seen mention of Wally's time in the TT in a few fic, so I know he and Dick were friends. I figured I'd be hunting down more cartoons at some point (and I probably still will), once I've grabbed Batman: The Animated Series.

I'm partway through Justice League Unlimited S3 now, and I'm not that happy with the new 'Unlimited' cast. I haven't seen my Wally yet because of all the new faces. *pouts*

I shall upload them for you promptly. Is Megaupload safe to use now? Lit mentioned Bob.

No Wally? How can there be no Flash?! There's always a Flash!!! You'll love wee!baby!Wally in the TT Y1 comics. He was one of the founding members. Luffs. I've read the original version that came out, uh, in the sixties I think, and it's a pretty faithful but updated version. You'll loffs it muchly.

Ah, Bob. Such an infuriating little sod; pernicious too! But I have no qualms about using MU. It's where I spent most of Tuesday, hunting down and retrieving S4-5 of JLU. *g*

If you're worried about catching something, there's always rapidshare, I have an account there too. *smooch*

Baby Wally sounds adorable!

Yes, I've read the first comic already. Thank you so much for sharing!

Wally+Turtle? *is intrigued*

Yeah, I read the whole lot in one sitting. So cute! And so earnest, the lot of them. And Batman IMing is possibly the most adorable thing I've seen in quite a while. {{{smishes him}}}

YIS! It made me want to ruffle his little bat ears. Hee!
