My Nana-da kept a pile of *comic books* in the toy box next to the fire place.  There was an arm chair in front of the toy box, facing the room, so it made a nice little spot for me to curl up out of the way during visits and family gatherings.  I would sit there and read *Archie* and *Disney* comics and ignore everyone.  There weren’t any other kids my age in my family to play with, and even as a child I was introverted and didn’t care much for crowds.  But I was a voracious reader and I loved those comic books.

I was three years old when my parents took me to see *Star Wars*, and I loved it.  My favorite part was (and still is) “when the Wookiee scared the bucket” (as I told my parents, who had to see it two or three more times before they figured out what part that was).  The “bucket” is actually a MSE-6 Droid, also known as a Mouse Droid, and the scene happens as Han, Luke, and Chewie are on their way to rescue Princess Leia.

Needless to say, I was a geek from a very young age.  So when I moved to the Portland, Oregon area as an adult, I definitely had to go check out the *Things From Another World* store.  I would wander around, drooling over the *toys* and *games*, leafing through the *graphic novels*, and wishing I could buy everything that struck my fancy.

Of course, now I live on the other side of the country.  These days, I peruse their website, adding things to my wish list and cursing the lack of funds to check out all the new comics and graphic novels available.  I would especially love to catch up on some of the ones I’ve really only recently heard about, thanks to all the new superhero movies coming out, particularly *Guardians of the Galaxy* and *Deadpool*.

Then there’s my favorite characters, like *Wonder Woman* (big surprise there, huh?) and *Harley Quinn* (probably not shocking either).

I’d also love to get more into *Doctor Who* and the continuation of *Buffy the Vampire Slayer*.  I was a huge Buffy fan and watched the show religiously.  I once got a phone call from a friend during “Buffy time” and it went something like this: “Hi! I know Buffy is on but it’s a commercial right now and I just had to tell you and oh, it’s back on, bye!”

My husband and I watched the “first” season of Doctor Who with the Ninth Doctor, and started watching the “second” one with the Tenth Doctor, but it went off our on demand and we haven’t gotten around to picking up the DVDs yet.  I’ve seen a few random episodes with the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors, and I thought they were great, so I’d really like to get back to the series someday.  You know, in that copious amount of spare time that I have.  I really just need a T.A.R.D.I.S. of my own.
