Entry 0012 -- During the week, I usually have some caffeine in the morning in the form of a bottle or two of Diet Pepsi or Diet Mountain Dew. On the weekends, for some reason, I don't feel the need to drink anything when I first get up. Then around this time I notice I have a headache, probably from caffeine withdrawal.

I'm more than halfway through the Buffy DVDs. One of the real gems is an episode where Xander has Amy cast a spell to make Cordelia love him, and it works on every women in Sunnydale -- except Cordelia. One of the funniest hours of Buffy I've ever watched. This morning the entire family huddled around the DVD player to watch an episode where a ghost is acting out a 50-year old murder. He was a student, she was a teacher who had an affair with him. I found the episode notable for two things: Willow's first use of magic (she discovered files on magic and paganism on Jenny Calendar's computer), which of course has great impact on recent episodes; and I believe this episode also had the first reference to The Mayor, who will play a prominent role in Season Three.

I did indeed buy comic books this week, including Fables, Love and Rockets, Spider-Man: Blue, Transmet, and Ultimate Spider-Man Super Special. I had hoped to have reviews of them up this morning, but my wife and kids took me out for an early Father's Day dinner last night, and so the reviews will have to wait for a day or two.

By now, you've probably heard that Mark Waid is leaving Ruse. There's some discussion of it on the Galaxy Forum. I'm very disappointed to see him leave the book. Seems like every time I invest myself in a Waid title (Captain America -- twice -- Empire and now Ruse), it quickly crashes and burns. Interesting that in none of these cases does it appear to be Waid's fault. I wish someone would just let the man do what he does best and leave him the hell alone.
