So, a couple of months ago I decided to head up a manga club at work. Decided that along with reading a different manga each month we'd do a fun little project, like origami or making candy sushi. For the first meeting I chose the first volume of Hikaru no Go, and decided that we'd try to learn to play Go.

For some reason, instead of taking the logical path and actually going out and finding/buying my own Go board, I took the more naive route and decided to construct my own out of collected bottle caps and a chess or checkers board. Until I realized last week that I didn't have nearly enough bottle caps.

And I waited until today, the day before the first meeting of my manga club, to actually go out looking in stores for Go sets. And finding none.

I suppose my only hope now is that playing online Go will be enough for whoever shows up for the meeting. Or...that no one shows up.

Obligatory post announcing to all and sundry that I voted today.

Had a three year-old tell me at work today that he voted, too. According to him and his mom, SpongeBob Squarepants is going to be our next President, and Batman is going to be his Vice-President.

So how has my weekend been so far?

Well, let's see. Friday I had my first sub job of the school year (which was a surprise; I wasn't expecting to get called in until the first week of September at the earliest). Just my luck, it was high school so I got my morning exercise tramping all around the school picking up attendance slips and dropping off announcements. On the bright side, I picked up some overtime staying after to help stuff envelopes for a mass mailing that went out at the last minute.

Then I got home, and found out Dad had had a minor stroke and Mom had taken him up to the hospital.

He's...well, I don't want to use the word "fine". He's still in the hospital as of tonight; Mom thinks he probably won't be going home until Monday, maybe Tuesday at the latest. When we saw him Friday they'd taken the IV out, but it was back in today. And he's still got a bit of weakness on his left side.

I anticipate that I'm going to be spending much of my day tomorrow as I did today, i.e. up at the hospital. Shaun, if the Doom plot gets up to Elyon's role and you don't want to wait around for me, you've got permission to play Elyon for that plot. We'll just...handwave that Chihiro and Hotaru are part of the Pirate Lord assault force, or something.

Well, so far so good... a check of Marvel's site still lists the release date for Runaways 30 as June 25. Keep your fingers crossed, people.

And the library is a creepy place when you have to close up by yourself.

Of all the places to hear about Heath Ledger today, work was the last place I would have thought of. But then I opened up IE to get to the "Every Library in Illinois" website, saw the headline on the Yahoo front page and almost went "What?!?" out loud right there at the circ desk.

Also, have discovered the most obnoxious place to get a paper cut - nearly under the fingernail of your pinky finger.

You know your new co-worker/boss is going to rock when you walk by his office and you see a poster for The New Avengers on the wall.

I don't know who I'm pissed at more: the little gangbanger wannabees who scrawl graffiti in the men's restroom or on the mezzanine railings, or the kids who thought it would be amusing to hang a sign on one of our outer doors that said "Whites Only".

...

Why is it, when I think things are going smoothly, I have to go and put my foot in my mouth again?
