My sister calls every morning around 6.

To talk to my mother.

Who is NEVER UP this early anymore.

Back in the day, she'd be up around 4, 4:30, but that time has slipped over the past year or two until it's more like 7.

You would think my sister would get the point by now and call later. Driving me up the wall.

On the other hand, it does have the tendency of waking up my mother so she can be there when the phone rings again. =P

Other downside, is my dad's current job often has him working until 1am, and he's not asleep 'til 2am, so four hours later, there's a phone call coming in, and he'll usually crawl out of bed too.


PADding things out

For fans of Peter David's Supergirl and/or Fallen Angel, just wanted to give y'all a heads up from PAD's website:

Fallen Angel #14 and #15: Supergirl Fans, please note

When "Fallen Angel" first launched from DC Comics, I played fast and loose with the notion that Lee was actually Linda Danvers, a.k.a. Supergirl. A number of hard core Supergirl fans, frustrated that I merely remained coy about it, wandered away from the series because they wanted to know what was up with Linda. When the series moved over to IDW, I revealed the true origin of the Fallen Angel.

Let the word go out, far and wide, in best nudge, nudge, wink wink fashion: Any fans of my run on Supergirl--particularly those who are torqued because Linda Danvers was consigned to oblivion in the DCU--must, must, MUST pick up "Fallen Angel" #14 and #15 when they come out next year.

Trust me.
