Graphic Novels

Today is SUNDAY and tonight, at 11pm G.M.T,  it's the Superbowl.

It's, one of the million times a year, I wish I lived in America. They know how to do it in style. Nothing is done in moderation over there.

Yesterday I spent most of the day reading,  Wolf Hall is my current challenge,  it's actually quite good, easy  to lose track of which Thomas is which but maybe that's just me. I also finished 'Daniel Clowes - Modern Cartoonist'. I loved this strip:

Jimmy Jupiter, Intergalactic Pedant:

Following on with all things American I am also planning to read this:

DELIVERED from America.   I got two of these competitive eating books from there. I love how there are tiny people, like Kobayashi, who manage to fit more than their body size down their throats.

This week I also secretly stalked someone - well not really, she was walking in front of me and I really wanted her bag:

I am a fan of the leopard print and sadly couldn't get close enough to see the tag. She might not have liked it either.  I'm not short of leopard print bags, or bags for that matter,  but I want that one.  Belfast isn't huge so I'll keep an eye out going to work every morning. #obsessed. I WANT THAT BAG.

I read a great blog post this week from Katrina of The Young Bridget Jones from her short break in Berlin - Graffiti Snaps. The photoautomat looks brilliant.  Bring back the passport photo machines where you can have 4 different snaps.

Why would I want four identical pictures of myself.  Posed passport/licence photos are rarely beautiful so to be reminded of that four times.  I would like to smile in my  photos and as I need a new passport I'll sneak in a smile, Mona Lisa style.

Have a good Sunday! Enjoy the Superbowl.

  1. Is there still a football game played between the laser ligth show, the concerts, commercials and UFO landings?

    Pro Football is such a fake set of boobs...but, the Super Bowl is an irresistable force. My wife just told The Boy, who said he wanted to watch Zulu for the 400th time instead of the "game,"...We will be watching the Super Bowl Mister.

    Nobody around here can find a reason to care about either team but, everybody is going to watch.
