    Yes, I know, it's another skip week. It's my understanding that Paul is currently fighting off DeathPlague 2K, though, and there are some really nice previews for you to hit, as well as some snazzy new merch.

    How's everyone today?

    Love the Volume 3 covers. May have to snag an unlined notebook. Any hopes of a tan unlined?

    Also, about to go open after closing last night, but it will all be made better with a viewing of Inglorious Basterds later tonight

    Hey guys, sorry for the skip week this week, I've been bed ridden with some sort of crappy illness. I'm back on my feet and working on next week's FA now though :)

    ... this skip week. This isn't because of the birthday thing, is it?

    Volume Three looks lovely.

    Tonight, much drinks. Tomorrow, debauchery. Sunday is new Tarantino movie day.

    AND! Next week, I might get to go to FanExpo in Toronto and walk the con floor for two hours BEFORE the Great Unwashed are allowed in.

    Hope you feel better, Paul.

    I'm doing well, Ariana, thanks for asking. How was your birthday?

    Gah! Curse you all and your limited edition merch! Curse my instinctive reaction to anything exclusive! Curse the modern economic system that allows me to spend money by just typing in a number!

    Suffice to say I one of those dual signed and sketched volume ones is gone. Sure, I won't be able to eat for a week, but I need to lose weight anyway :)

    Apart from being slightly poorer I am quite well.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, meant to mention the solicitation info has that "6 years later/6 years ago" bug that was on the volume one cover preview for a while...

    ps. hope the DeathPlague 2K doesnt last too long!

    Somehow I knew this was going to be a skip week...

    But I also am going to see Inglorious Basterds at a midnight screening to make things better :)
    So I am quite good.

    Good weekend to all of you.

    No Chikkinz T-shirt for me! :-D.

    Love the cover of the hardback volume as well.

    Avatar (comic cavalcade) must love these Notice weeks. Every time there is one, I order something. Hummmm *?*

    Avatar- that orange doktor shirt is the best offer yet, I also got some FA stuff.
    Ariana- I am as well as can be expected. I am still fighting with hospital over non-payment by insurance company. I owe them a staggering amount.
    Paul- hope you feel better. Being sick sucks.

    get well soon Paul

    Good luck battling your mystery illness, Paul. I may actually have to postpone the purchase of a Coilhouse and/or Dok shirt in order to get at the No Chikkinz one.

    I'm well but for the bruising and tearing of flesh sustained earlier in the week. I finally got around to fixing my laptop, which i'm currently unable to leave due to issues with dettachment.

    Man up get well soon Mr Duffield. The book three covers are a pleasure to behold.

    I'm pretty ok, back at the family pad for the weekend. My old man decided to celebrate his impending 60th by falling down the stairs and then arguing with my stepmum. Luckily, only slight bruises to feelings, which are fading quickly. Also, they bought me a very nice bottle of single malt back from their jaunt to Scotland. Win.

    I hope you feel better soon, Paul. The sketched dual cover copies look great. :)

    oooh shiny freakangels notepad and im off to uni soon and only $13 i shall get that but wait, lets see what the shipping is..

    $30? Really? I could maybe understand when I went to buy the bag that shipping could be that much, but then again when I went to buy the KK silouette t-shirt the shipping was also $30. Avatar why must you tax us foriegners so much? I buy t-shirts and books and merch and even a huge mexican poncho once from america and the shipping is never that much. I buy a lot of t-shirts from websites like threadless and designbyhumans etc and shipping to the UK is always below $10. For something like the notepad I'd expect it to be less than $7 not $30.
    I dont want this to come off as whiny but I'm broke and I'd love some freakangels stuff.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    @ Paul Duffield - Hope you feel <i>much</i> better soon, and I'm not just saying that because I rely on you for my FA goodies. Get that lovely gf of yours to make you some chikkenz soup. Seriously, they don't call that stuff Jewish penicillin for nothing, you know.

    @ Daffyd - If you desperately need that extra 0.5% get your paper remarked. Any examiner who doesn't have a heart of lead will understand why you're getting it remarked and find a clever sentence that will account for an extra mark or two. If it's irrelevant then I guess it's more like an annoyance than anything else. I got 69.6% in a Uni module last year - nothing to be ashamed of, but I was naturally pissed that I was 0.4% off a 1st.

    That new Merch looks amazing. I haven't bought anything yet so I'm an FA merch virgin, but I think I'm going to soon rectify that with a meaty injection of cash. I want a Volume 1 Luke sketch soooo bad. I've always loved Luke, the silly immoral elitist bastard. But at any rate, we get to see which characters people love the most on account of which sketch volumes get snapped up first.

    N.B. Forgot to mention - Did anyone else notice that Kait actually has boobs? Awww, cute little boobs :P *Hits self*

    How's everyone today?

    hi, Ariana. Hope Paul feels better and hope you don't catch anything either. I think I might have super blood; it's been about 3 years and I don't get severely ill. Lite colds/coughs once in a while, but that's it. I should sell the blood.

    also: fuckin week. must refrain from popping the two Aleve i keep on me at all times...

    Get well soon, Paul.

    It's been a gloomy week, each day less productive than the last. And less interested in socializing. Except here the weekend and there's Stuff to Do. Very annoyed with myself.

    Oh man, do I want me one of those sketchbooks - they look really, really nifty. Can't say I've ever heard of 'recycled leather' before, but that matters not at all. Want.
