Back From Vacation!

ottawa-panoramaHey all! I just got in last night from Ottawa and let me tell you, it was quite the trip. We managed to do many things while we were there, including visiting my childhood home, my old neighborhood, my favorite watering holes and restaurants, and visited with many of my old friends! But at the same time, it’s good to be home. Visiting your old hometown and friends can be wonderful, but so can being back in the place you love with your wife and cat.

And I can tell, I have a lot of catching up to do. Seriously, if I thought I was behind before I left, I’m way behind now! Luckily, I have a revised to do list that covers what I hope to do in the coming weeks. While I was away, I actually managed to get some serious reading and editing done, and decided it was time to get back to a few ongoing projects that also begging for completion.

  • Catch up on sleep
  • Cut back on beer (sampled too many this time around!)
  • Watch the season premier and episode 2 of The Walking Dead
  • Review of the Akira graphic novel
  • Review of the Batman graphic novels – Arkham Asylum, The Killing Joke, The Man Who Laughs
  • Review of Rami Ungar’s The Quiet Game (overdue)
  • Catch up on Yuva stories
  • Catch up on other people’s posts

Sound like a plan? Good, then let’s get this party started! Good to be home…

  1. And with Reborn City in 8 days, it’s not a moment too soon. By the way, I’ve read Akira. It is AWESOME! It’s too bad the live-action film version is in development hell.
    Oh, before I forget, Welcome back Matt. We missed you.

      1. I saw the anime movie after I read the manga. As usual, when you try stuffing 6 volumes into two and a half hours, it’s going to irritate some fans. I was one of those fans. Maybe a 2-part live-action film will do better.
        Probably not.

      2. Yes, I’m one of those people who saw the anime years ago, and just now read the Manga. It’s like LOTR and GOT all over again! I have to read these things first, less confusing that way 🙂

  2. Welcome back. Glad you enjoyed. I knew something was amiss when days passed without a post from you hitting my inbox. Coincidentally, I was also vacaying at my childhood home at about the same time.
    Stop by and visit.
