In my happy place

Yes indeed, the Wombat is pleased tonight. After waiting fruitlessly for the latest Ai Yori Aoshi and Mahoromatic manga to show up at the downtown B&N, I gave up and called the local SF& comics joint, only to be told that the former was sold out and the latter was being held until the San Diego Comics Con. Hmmm, I says. Okay.

Well, as it happens, phoenixalpha and I were meeting for lunch at the Block E Borders, and I decided to take a look at their manga collection to see if maybe they had a copy. Sure, I'd be paying full price, but hey - I was tired of waiting. Borders had moved the manga from the art book section over to a niche of its own by the Hennepin Avenue windows, and sure enough they had both manga that I was looking for. w00t!

Not only that, the August Playboy was sitting in my mailbox when I got home. I don't know what's up with that - my subscription expired in March, and since I don't find the cheesecake worth all the annoying left-wing twaddle, I didn't renew. Still, the issues arrive, and this month's articles aren't so obviously from the tinfoil hat brigade...while Miss August is quite glorious.
