the pairing I never knew I liked
You mean to tell me there's Betty/Reggie happening in Life With Archie and I've been missing it?

This is what I get for not buying an Archie comic in over a decade.



I did notice in B&N the other day that the "Double" Digests are about half the size they used to be. Remember when a Double Digest was actually twice the size of a regular Digest?


I used to buy these things all the time, especially when we'd visit my grandparents in Florida for the summer. I'd go to every different grocery store looking for all the series. My cousin B and I would read the words off them. And flea markets were a great place to find older comics for pretty cheap.


I'm kinda sad that I got rid of all my Archie comics when I moved out of my parents' house. I only have a couple of digests that managed to escape the big clean-out.



Archie (the TV series, not the boy) was one of my very, very first loves, along with New Zoo Revue, back in the late 70s. When I was three or four--certainly no older, because I know it was before my parents got divorced--I had Archie paper dolls that I kept on the top bunk bed so that my little sister couldn't get them and tear them up. I'd climb up there to play with them.



Ah, nostalgia....

I never realized I liked it, but I did know that Betty needed to stop wasting her time on stupid Archie.

(hey I suddenly appeared out of nowhere, hugs, how are you?)

I've always loved Betty/Reggie as a kid, I still do. I think it's because they're an interesting pairing and I would love to see how they would work out in fiction.

*hugs* how are you?

It's hilarious how everyone's a Betty/Reggie fan. Man, where was everyone when I was 12?


I did write a dopey little drabble for a day_by_drabble prompt, and this finally reminded me to post that stuff to my fic journal.

Haha, join the club.

Also I'm good :), I'm on vacation from med school hell. Which ends soon. You have to realize how messed up med school made me because I actually miss it.

and this finally reminded me to post that stuff to my fic journal.

I'll be on it like ... something, heh.

Aw, hang in there. I'm sure you're doing awesome.

D's been back in school for two weeks now, and we're adjusting. Every semester his schedule is different and we have to learn how to work with it. With any luck though he'll be done by the end of next year.
