Barnes and Noble= Geek Heaven!!

Today was one of those dreamy kinds of days. You know, the ones you wish would never end because you're having such a good time. :) Well, today was one of those days. Not only did I get to stay at the Barnes and Noble.. but I got to stay at the Barnes and Noble for FIVE HOURS!! This gave me plent of time to catch up on the latest manga and comic-book developments. It was quite exciting!

The only downside is that I've just recently caught a wicked cold. The sore throught has gone away, but I still have a really bad case of the sniffles. So while I park myself in the manga aisle, I kept having to quickly run to the bathroom to blow my nose. Even after all that effort, my nose was still pretty plugged up. I swear people could hear me breathing from about twenty feet away! That.. was kind of embarassing.

This is too funny for words! Seriously, you need to watch it.

I managed to wolf down three graphic novels while I was there though, which is quite an accomplishment on my part. They weren't all of the greatest quality, but I managed to pick up one that will soon be a personal favorite. It was just sooo kawaii! Anyone who has ever had a crush should pick up "School Rumble". You will smile.. and given the right circumstances and enviornment, laugh out loud. Unforutnatley, I had people sitting right next to me, so I had to keep my laughter in (it was hard at times).

So overall, here are the ratings for all of the mangas and comic-books I had read! Like anyone cares. *snickers*

School Rumble Vol. 1: B+ (the concept got slightly repetitive, but I couldn't help but love it)

Yu-Gi-Oh Duelist Vol. 1: C (it's kinda like Poke'mon. Feels like a giant fluffly ad for the card game)

Astonshing X-Men Vol. 3: B- (I found this really confusing, but it was still entertaing)

.dot Hack//Legend of Twilight Vol. 1: B (The entire concept is very simple, but I really fell for this one. Great characters and funny situations!)

And yeah, that basically rounds out what I had read. I only read half of Yu-Gi-Oh, so my grade is based entirely on the portion that I read. Maybe it got better.. but I doubt it.

This man is a genius! Literally.

Basically, today was alot of fun! And now I wish to continue the fun with a couple hours of anime before I go to bed (yaaaaayyy!). May The Geek Be With You!!!
