So yesterday I graduated from high school which I still can't believe. Next year I'll be going to George Washingotn University and this summer I'll be spent working my ass so I'm not a completely poor college student.

Anyway after graduation I went to the Comic book shop and bought a bunch of comics. Now at the shop I go to I've known the owner for years now. I've been going there since 7th grade so he knowns me, my family, and even my girlfriend really well. When I go to checkout he asks "is that all?" I say yeah sure and he says "well would like this for you graduation?" and gives he gives me two free passes to an early screening of the new hulk movie.

My life is pretty awesome right now.

eh, even if does suck at least I got to see it for free. I mean I was going to see it anyway. I am excited to see it but I thought the action alone was really nice.

I went to a public school in Baltimore city. If paste pot pete tried attack the graduation I can say with some confidence that he would have been shot.

Winston Wolf.

I don't think that's the answer to every question ever. :)

I'll probably take my brother- he also reads comics.

I also bought Moore's first volume of Swamp Thing. I hope it's as good as the hype.

I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong there.

And if Winston Wolf isn't an acceptable answer: Paste Pot Pete.

I don't like to go into a date and disappoint. Unfortunately for Winston my genitals remain un-tattooed.

yeah, the owner of the store is such a nice guy. My whole family likes to make a visit there just to visit Chuck and I remember one time my sister was so happy that he noticed that she had a hair cut and that he liked it. It is just nice to go some place that is nice, warm, friendly and you never feel rushed.

Thank you!

heh, unfortunately with college coming up I'll probably have to trim it a bit. That said he'll get a bunch of my money this summer!

One of my friends has an eight foot inflatable incredible hulk. My little sister wants him as a decoration for her graduation party. The Incredible hulk in a cap and gown my mom is making....

The post title just reminds me of that and I thought it was hysterical.
