So I Decided...

...to quit buying Marvel action figures. I've got everyone I need, my old ones keep breaking and the new Hasbro stuff is substandard. Ben has his own collection by now so I'm stopping. And it feels good. Then I went and bought this:



There's no way out.

You've moved up to bigger and greater things. Busts. Statues. But where does it stop, Jon? Soon you may actually own Iron Man himself. Tony Stark! And that means he gets Ben's room. And then where does Ben sleep? In the office. That means you lose your office!

Oh Jon, you know what this means man. You've talked about this day for some time. Once you start, there's no stopping. You've got to get them all!!!!!

I've quit cocaine but just started heroin.

It's nice. Different. More sophisticated.

I seem to recall the same decision in 1996. And 1998. And 2001. And 2003. And in a few other years, too.

Quitting is so easy you can just keep doing it.

This is it though....no statues! I will NOT have a life-size Batman, Greenlanter and HellBoy greeting me at the door!!!

Drucker is onto something...the real question is "where will you sleep?!" :)

No, there's no way out. My daughter gave me a Marvel pop-up calendar for Christmas...*sigh*

Finally!
Now we can stop going to Forbidden Planet!
I'm kidding, I still like action figures.
