After food and a lot of coffee (maybe too much) at Beulahland — which had opened early (to show an Arsenal game), but I hadn't known that — I also visited my main comic shop and a library branch, covering ground I'd wanted to get to. I'm still adjusting to winter weather. Time to get used to it.
* Once, a few years ago, I walked into Beulahland when it wasn't open for business yet but the front door was open — they were loading product in. I felt chagrined. I won't repeat that mistake.
