So tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day! At which there will be a preview for the Zuko!Prequel! HOW ABOUT THAT! (more info on the other journal if you're interested)

I signed up for the Gotham Girls Basic Training next month, so I can work on my quad skating skills (or rather, my lack thereof.) I'm pretty excited about it, actually! I'm not a particularly serious athlete but there are some basic skills I've had a hard time figuring out on my own, not to mention the poor shape of my basic form. I've bought the required equipment I didn't already have (helmet, mouth guard, elbow guards) and now you know...COMMITTED!

On a related note: still trying to figure out whether or not I want to buy new, higher-quality quads for myself. The skates I have now were bought back in October while [livejournal.com profile] hoshizora was first visiting, and I've gotten a lot of use out of them since then. But they're men's vinyl figure skates of moderate quality, and I'm starting to get good enough that quality matters. I tried on [livejournal.com profile] hoshizora's speed skates the other day, and even though they're like two sizes too big for me they STILL felt more comfortable and better fitted than my current skates. Only problem is, a decent pair of used speed skates is gonna cost at LEAST $200 and probably significantly more.

Hmm.

This would be less of a problem if not for the last item in this post: my cat! Julien! Who I adore and who is over 17 years old! And who had to go to the vet twice this week and is now on antibiotics because of a kitty UTI, which caused him to yowl horribly and pee in places he was not supposed to. Fortunately the meds seem to be helping and he's on the mend, but...guys. GUYS. I don't want to think about how much those vet trips and blood tests and urine cultures cost me. I don't want to think about it at all.

Oh, Julien. You may have cost me a pair of skates, buddy, but you're worth it. <3
