Today's Dimestore Dame is the Blonde Phantom! Seriously, whenever I read her Golden Age comics, I just go all chin-handsy and go, "She's sooooo preeeeeeetty." Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] harmonyangel for some scans of her She-Hulk era appearances!

And now, the sad number of books I read in November.

books read last month )

I forgot to mention that this week's Marvel Dimestore Dame was Deathbird.

Also, I woke up today to find myself sick. My throat and lungs kind of hurt a lot. Oddly, drinking water just makes them hurt worse. That can't be good.

This week on Dimestore Dames, I ramble about Mary Jane Watson.

And, wow. MJ is one of those characters where I end up with 9000000 awesome scans of her being great. Picking and choosing was hard, man. Most of them went out the window for having not-my-favorite '90s McFarlane art.

I got my Dimestore Dame up a day late. She is Cecilia Reyes.

Today I celebrated getting paid by buying $30 worth of Canadian tea (which is not a weird euphemism) and then severely overeating at Chilis. Holy Moses. I need to crawl off to bed and concentrate on digesting.
mizzmarvel: (happy halloween!)
This week on Dimestore Dames, I look at one of my favorite witchy women, Agatha Harkness

Also, here's a meme nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] entwashian:

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door.' Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!

One day late, but the Marvel Dimestore Dame this week is (unsurprisingly) Karma.

Now, if you'll excuse me, my tummy hurts and I'm going to go lay down.
mizzmarvel: (mirror mirror on the wall)
Does anyone have any good scans of Shan aka Karma from New Mutants? Or know where I might find any? The post is nearly written, but I seem to have accumulated only one not totally crappy image. Blah. :/

In any case, the post is coming late this week.

Today on Dimestore Dames, I ramble about Pepper Potts.

Also, last night I got to revisit one of my most common dream themes: it's the first day of school and I can't find one of my classes. Like, DAYS will go by and I'll pass through all these bizarre classrooms around campus, ones that look like greenhouses and movie theatres, and never find the one I'm looking for. And it is always, always high school in these dreams. Like, in last night's dream I started panicking about being college competitive and I actually stopped to think, Wait, don't you have a B.A. in Archaeology?

I'm not going to even pretend this doesn't say way too much about my personality.

This week on Dimestore Dames, I know stuff about Layla Miller.

Also, that coat I was coveting this weekend? I found it for way cheaper on Overstock and it came today and it fits perfectly and I love it SO MUCH and this sentence is finally going to end now.

This week on Dimestore Dames, I get catty with Tigra.

Also, I've discovered that Target carries my brand of bra for less than $20. So, basically I should just hand over my paychecks to Target from now on, because I no longer have any need to shop elsewhere. Or be anywhere else or, frankly, to love anything else.
mizzmarvel: (marvel girls - icon_teahouse)
This week on Dimestore Dames, I examine characters who suddenly drop off the face of the Earth and one reason children shouldn't be allowed to name kittens: Shard.

Apropos of nothing, we've suddenly been slammed with cold, and I don't like it. I may just wear a sleeping bag to work tomorrow.

Do you ever get to the point where you're too tired to go to bed? I'm exhausted, but clicking links seems like a lot easier than shutting off the computer and getting into bed. Maybe I'm just too traumatized by the dream I had two nights ago where Chris Evans refused to be my boyfriend and I cried. Dream Chris Evans is a douche. (And what, was I trying to make my, like, nine other Marvel movieverse crushes jealous?)

Also, I have no idea who I'm going to write up for Dimestore Dames this week. Any suggestions?

I went big this week at Dimestore Dames -- Cassie Lang, aka Stature.

I love Young Avengers so much. I missed a few issues of Children's Crusade, and I really need to pick it up.

Today on Dimestore Dames, I compensate for my lifelong nail-biting habit by examining Lady Deathstrike.

Also, things I'm obsessed with right now:

1. Tazo chai tea concentrate. If I use this stuff, I can make a week's worth of iced chai lattes for the price of just one from Starbucks. The problem is, I seem to be stockpiling them like I'm preparing for the apocalypse. I have eight in my cabinet right now, and one at work.

2. Target. I'm still stocking up my apartment on odds and ends. Like a spatula! And a bath tub scrub! And etc. I very much look forward to the point when I can go to Target and spend less than $30.

3. How disturbingly hot I find Dum Dum Dugan. DAMN. I want to see that bowler hat hanging from my bedpost every morning.

My older brother thinks Captain America sucked. Eventually, I just started making up facts when I was arguing with him about it, because there was no kind way to say, "You also think Hulk was better than Iron Man, so clearly your opinion is no longer valid."

Very, very early morning Dimestore update while I wait for something to upload on my other, more decrepit laptop. This week, feel some love for Venus.

Relatedly, damn. I had a lot of preadolescent girlcrushes on Golden Age comic book heroines.

Fact: When I don't have a lot of spare time, I usually do a Dimestore post on a character who's relatively minor, because they're easier for me to do. Well, this week I didn't have a lot of time, but I wrote about a better known character anyway: Shadowcat.

Today at Dimestore Dames, I explore daddy issues with Lilith, Daughter of Dracula.

Also, I feel very very very sick. Very.
mizzmarvel: (marvel girls - icon_teahouse)
This week at Dimestore Dames, I check out hot four-eyes Debra Whitman.

Also, I feel like I'm going to barf. I tried eating half a bag of tortilla chips for dinner, but somehow that didn't help matters. IMAGINE THAT.

This week on Dimestore Dames, I bring you a huge fan favorite from my childhood -- Blink.

Also, cut to protect the incredibly easily squicked )

Today on Dimestore Dames, I take a look at one of the younger set: Valeria Richards.

And totally inappropriately, here's a meme I stole from [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory:

Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

1. What they most commonly do during sex
2. Who has prettier hair
3. What they argue about most often
4. Who'd cope best if the other one died
5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

Could that someone be Mack the Knife?
