Alduraithel is kind of like the virus from hell. Some viruses just give us you a cold or a fever. He can rip you apart with his magic.
I do not function well when my wife goes away. I tend to mope around the apartment like an unattended puppy. If I didn't have a comic to do I'd probably just sit by the front door, waiting for it to open with big puppy-dog eyes. Well, I wear glasses, so it's more like all four of my puppy-dog eyes.
I hope she doesn't act the same way when I go off to conventions, like to ANIME ST. LOUIS this weekend. But I at least know that she's got better company when I'm away. Our cats don't sleep by my feet when it's just me in the bed at night, but she does not have that problem. Picky little pussycats.
That's all from me for now.
