Almost In! 

Hey readers who have had to suffer through seeing a giant jellyfish everyday for over a week, my apologies. I've been working like mad to get some things done on that house I mentioned so we could move in TOMORROW. I put in a bamboo floor in my daughter's soon to be room, and thanks to Lieber for coming over to cut and nail planks with me one day, that made a huge difference. For the other room that needed a floor (an almost finished attic room that we decided to go ahead and finish) I took the easier route and put down laminate panels. Took much less time! And later if I find a good deal on more wood, I'll just put it down right over that, because why not. But I'm in no big hurry to be flooring again for a few months, no matter how bad I want all the carpet upstairs to go away.

Movers are coming over in the morning, and they can have the pleasure of that fold-out couchbed that nearly killed me and Ron Randall. Jill has boxed the living hell out of almost everything here, I had to keep unboxing our boy all day. Kidding.

The sad thing is, and I have to ask if any other bloggers will admit to this, is that I keep checking my blog as if it somehow might have updated itself while I was busy with everything. Now that would be a feature. Hope you're all getting some time off to hang with your favorite people. The latest Adventures Fantastic Four came out, featuring Submariner. Get one for the stockings, won't you?

Giant Jellyfish! 

Via BoingBoing I just saw this- yikes! Imagine drifting into the business end of that blob. Here's the article.

Our House... 

...but thankfully it's not in the middle of the street like the Madness song, it's on a corner lot. If my blogging is sporadic for a couple of weeks, it's because we've finally become homeowners, and now have to get that place ready to move into. It's a 1924 bungalow in the Hollywood neighborhood of Portland. And it just ran out of oil for the furnace, so I have to go order some now. There are lots of funny (re:costly) quirks of the place that I'll be sharing, and maybe Mystifying Oracle will become This Old Blog.

H0 H0 H0 

The Marvel Holiday Special is in comics stores now, if you'd like a heartwarming tale where Ultron becomes Santa Claus and tries to give The New Avengers the gift of Death. Reilly Brown worked really hard on "Yes Virginia, There Is A Santron," pick it up! Also: there's Roger Langridge work within.
