Shhhh....abbyshot.com wrote me back (FAST! I'll bet theirs is great customer service!) They're workinig on the Silent Bob coat, as the website now states, and they're gonna keep an eye on the Underworld one. Apparently they've already gotten requests for Lin's, and are still 'tracking the interest' on it, so that might come out in the future. Best part, though, is that they're also working on a DANTE coat!! SWEETNESS!!!

Obsession is the name of the game for Crimsonobsessor. Devoting herself to her various fandoms with an unhealthy fervor, she spends most of her time thinking smutty S&M thoughts about Zim and Dib, and championing certain rare pairings, most specifically Kain/Raziel, Janos/Raziel, and Kurt/Logan.
Strengths: Creativity, loyalty, an open mind, love of reading, love of the Bridgie, love of her pets, the ability to pretend that the blinding stupidity of others does not bother her - to their faces, anyway
Weaknesses: Distrusting nature, arrogance, impatience, procrastination
Special Skills: The ability to make Zim and Dib do whatever naughty thing she wants to see them do, writing and drawing, novice computer saavy, good alphabetizing skills
Weapons: Years of useless trivia gleaned from books and movies, Idgiebay (wordmaster extraodinaire), a slightly sluggish wit, sharp teeth, mad writing skillz
Do NOT Say...:

-Cut up my card. I am going to Hollywood Video!

-No! I dropped those movies off on time, you people just took my movies and only my movies, and left them on the counter for ten hours before checking them in.

-That show is dangerous. We should play it at weird hours, preempt its usual times, then claim its ratings are bad so we can get rid of it.

Today has been strange. Lived up to its Friday the 13th duties, that's for certain. I had some really horrible news this morning....

There was this great guy, named Dewayne, who owned a barber shop a few doors down from Blockbusters, at the other end of our shopping center. Nicest guy you could ever hope to meet. He would come into the store all the time. I'd always take good care of him because he was one of the few that make the job actually worthwhile, the ones who love you for what you do and who never have an unkind word to say. Those customers are extremely rare, and I treasure each one as much as I despise all of the rude, bitching, ignorant ones.

When I started working there Dewayne was one of the first of those customers. He'd owned the barber shop for many years, far longer than the six years our store's been open, and he once told Paul that out of all the cashiers that have worked there, I was the most efficient and friendly. I can't say how great that made me feel. One day in October I mentioned to him that I wanted to go to a Haunted House, but didn't have any money. He gave me a ten and told me to have fun. Another day we spent admiring each others tattoos. He had a beautiful one on his calf, a design he created himself; a music note with flames around it, I believe. A week wouldn't go by when he didn't come in, wearing shorts and short-sleeves (even in the dead of winter), smiling and greeting us warmly, for all the world seeming happy and perfectly healthy.

This morning Paul was talking to a couple of people outside, before we opened. He then came in to inform me that Dewayne probably had less than an hour to live. Apparently he was an alcoholic, at some point in his life. It destroyed his liver and he'd been in a coma for days. This morning they'd taken him off life support.

Why does it always happen to the people who don't deserve it?

We'll miss you, Dewayne.
