So much is on hold, right now.
The Christmas season is in play. I've been saying the second half of December is the whole deal, but if you want to get down to brass tacks, it's really the 6 days before Christmas and the day after. In other words, starting TODAY.
Lots of other things happening. The whole 1031 mess is something I'd love to comment about; but I want to get the full info first. Interesting that it all blew up on the blogs a full day before it hit the media. But I do have one comment: a lot of people seem to be challenged by the concept of 'cause and effect....'
Amazing to me that so many stores have chosen to open in the last week, or so. And what a shock the middle of February is going to feel to them.
I'll be interested to know how Borders does this Christmas; a couple of years ago, the independent comic community was all but calling for the demise of comic shops in favor of the mega bookstores. "Look how well Manga is selling at Borders!"
Falls under the rubric of "Watch out what you wish for...."
I'm torn about taking my usual half Friday and the weekend off. It will be almost my last chance to have days off. But I do have the following weekend, so I'll probably work most of Friday, and most of Saturday, and open early and close late on Sunday.
