Okay. This is the Brokeback Mountain/Narnia fanfic I started to write a while back for my dear friend Jessica. If you do not care for BBM, or think a crossover with The Chronicles of Narnia (the books) is some sort of blasphemy, then feel free to skip along to the next entry on your Friends page. I will say that only ONE Narnia indivudual turns up and I think it will be obvious who....

Used DvDs

Used Game/DvD stores are a god-send when your budget is tight, especially if the local shops handle anime! They're few and far between, unless you're into DragonBall Z or GX or watever the latest version is, but occasionally there are gems.... I picked up most of the third season of Rurouni Kenshin used, and approx. half of 'Legend of Kyoto' thanks to some generous person liquidating their anime collection. My husband scored 'Full Metal Panic' (1st Series) the same way.

Sometime, tho', you gotta do the math.... one of our local used stores has two of the Samurai X trilogy dvds, 'Trust' and 'Betrayal', each priced at $14.99 (call it $32 for the pair, with tax). However, BEST BUY has the complete set, thin pack, priced at $38.... Likewise, the Used shop had KH2 for $40 whereas BB had it NEW for $48; throw in the $10 off coupon for being a BB frequent shopper, and well, guess who got my daughter's hard earned cash? Guess which merchant will probably make a sale of SamuraiX once I have some money to spare? Despite my current disatisfaction with their arbitrary anime inventory methods....

Y'know, I see lots of copies of 'CRASH', and 'Capote' and other recent Oscar Award nominated movies at the Used DvD stores, but I have yet to see ONE discarded copy of 'Brokeback Mountain'..... coincidence? I don't think so!

Originally I'd negotiated an hour for lunch last year so that I could run home and make sure Orion wasn't keeling over from heat stroke during the summer (and haul him into the shower and hose him down if he was over-heating), and to keep him company and shove pills down his throat the last couple few months.... With him gone, I did think about cutting back to a half-hour but today I'm kinda glad I didn't, because it gave me enough time to run over to the nearest Best Buy and grab me 'Narnia' and 'Brokeback' over lunch. YES! Who's da bomb?!!

No 'Loveless' #2, or 'Burst Angel' #6, tho' -- Daughter has been nagging for BA for the past two weeks, and I thought since I saved so much money on "NEW RELEASE TUESDAY" at Best Buy today, I'd indulge her.... oh well, there's a BB on the other side of the river; Husband and I are headed that way tomorrow evening, gonna see if B&N has 'Cantarella' #1. If not, there's always Iowa City next weekend.

Proof I've been reading waay too much BBM fic and Narnia-fic: I keep getting this mental image of Jack waiting in Aslan's Country (which looks suspiciously like Wyoming), Aslan's keeping him company, and I have a feeling they're talking about Ennis.....

(*Hides* .... don't lynch me....)
