Trivia gets me glory. And stuff.

Whoa. Second Geek Trivia in a row where my team won the grand prize. Different teams both times; I was able to contribute answers (correct answers, even! Mostly) to both, relievedly. We won a grab-bag of comics stuff: my big "get" last night was the first collection of the Dark Horse Comics adaptation of Solomon Kane, based on Robert E. Howard's stories.

Last night's Geek Trivia was a likely needed chance to be loud and obnoxious. I was cranky on my way to it, and I got cranky again on my way home, but I do wonder if I'd've been crankier without that often-loud outlet that my fellow geeks afford me.

LOTS of space there. (That's also the theater where I first met Mike Russell, Dawn Taylor and her husband Patrick Hurley in person.) Vendetta will be hosting related events, though. Something that's coming there: geek speed dating.

  • I can do stuff while feeling low

    After posting the earlier entry, I did a walk. And an errand. A combination walk-errand. I needed to return a library book, Beverly Cleary's…
