Well, that there is just nice.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes. I basically just took the day off and sat around the house and caught up on Doctor Who episodes and napped. So yes, it was pretty swank. And a french toast breakfast at the L&L, which those who have come in for B-Fest know is no mean treat.
Got some swag. My friend Jeff W., who tragically will be missing his first B-Fest in 20 plus years in January, sent me a nice DVD release of Octaman, as well as the fourth season of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. So that’s all gold. My friend Elena, recently moved to San Fran (and hopefully wearing flowers in her hair), sent me Haunted Horror, the latest of a simply fantastic series of utterly gorgeous hardcover tomes of reprints of old horror comics. I think this is the fifth such volume. Put at least one of these on your wish list or buy for a gift yourself, because I’m not kidding, these are some of the loveliest books you will ever see, and the price for them is crazy cheap, under $20 a volume.
