Trying comics. Again.

I’ve read The Dark Knight Returns, and I’ve read The Watchmen, and I didn’t really enjoy them.  I’m not saying they’re bad (because they’re not), but maybe I just don’t like reading comics.  Maybe I need more words.

I went to the comic book store with John after we had lunch together on Monday, and I bought TWO comics (or graphic novels – at what point do they become graphic novels instead of comics?).  The guy who works there was so enthusiastic when I asked for help.  I went looking for The New Deadwardians, but I didn’t find it, so I asked, and he put everything on hold (he was ringing up John) to go search for me.  Checked two shelves, no dice, so back to his computer and to a third shelf.  Well, after all that, I HAD to buy it.  (Also, I went looking for it because I think Jess suggested it, and as we all know, I do whatever Jess tells me to do.)  I bought something else the guy suggested, too, but I can’t remember what it is right now, and I can’t muster the energy to get up and look.  Something about being similar to Ocean’s Eleven but stealing a ghost instead of money.

Speaking of doing whatever others tell me to, Mindy thinks I should stop using shampoo.  I’m sure it’s not just me – she probably think everyone should stop using shampoo.  I’m going to see if the organic shampoo I have has those chemicals all the websites say are so awful.  And in the meantime, I’ll THINK about going the baking soda route.  Really.  (I’m spending entirely too much time thinking about my hair.)

    BTW, I haven’t read it yet, myself. So I have no idea if it’s good. It was recommended by Amy Dallin as a good comic for Whovians.

    Also, I did the baking soda thing (and diluted apple cider vinegar as a conditioner.) I actually liked it, but then I got lazy and went back to Aveda.

    No, but you’re really concentrating the baking soda on your scalp, rather than your hair. The vinegar, I put in a spray bottle and sprayed over all my hair.

    I’m still kind of waffling about going back to it. However, I highly recommend washing your face with a mix of honey and sugar. It is the bomb-dizzle (OMG, I’m so a child – or teen, anyway – of the 90s). The sugar exfoliates and the honey just makes your skin frickin’ perfect. I don’t know why. It’s a mystery. It’s all soft and glowing and shit. (If you’re wearing makeup, I recommend washing your face with an actual face soap and THEN doing the whole honey and sugar thing.)
