it's not just the Marvel Universe, it's my universe too

i've been far too obsessed with reading comic books lately. Marvel Comics has this series going on right now about a super-hero Civil War, putting good guys against good guys. there's a few main-focus type comic books, but plenty of cross-over stuff that's well worth the read. certainly a must-read for anyone who may consider themselves a comic-book geek.

it's coming upon christmas time again. my family generally does a hand-made christmas rather than spending countless hours in the mall hunting down the "perfect" gift. we all sort of figured a couple of years ago that nobody could ever think of what to buy anyone, and since the idea is about the thought behind the gift, how could you get more thought in a gift than to make something with your own two hands? it's lots of fun to do, but this year a non-stop work schedule has run me pretty low on ideas. last year i made t-shirts for everyone, but was trying to think of something more gooder.

any idears?

    Monkey and I are reading Civil War and we talk about What Could Be The Outcome Of The Marvel Universe?! and things like that.

    I'm on Captain America's side, for shizzle. I like how Bendis parodies Real Life.

    yeah, Captain America totally has the right side there, and i'm glad Spider-man finally sees the point.

    and now Punisher's getting involved... can't wait for this month's books to come out. i'm totally geeked about it.
