Bookish friends are the best: Thank you so much, BT!!

Hand-delivered by my postman this morning.  Woohoo!

 

I love the design, and I love how sturdy and yet lightweight it is.  AND it's even got a lid with an open / shut setting for letting some steam get out while still keeping the contents hot ... thank you once more!

Different team, no rocket
Guardians of the Galaxy (2019-) #1 - Donny Cates,Geoff Shaw,David Marquez

They don't talk about Rocket.  I haven't been able to figure out why yet. 

 

But hey, here they're teasing us with Rocket's death.

 

Ask me if I'm happy, I dare you.   Most Guardian titles get a five star, because I've found them to be charming, partly because of what an a-hole Rocket is.   Now, between what the writer says and how they deal with this?   Rocket may not be dead.   But I didn't read Infinity Wars, which I found to be crap by the end of issue one - which I got for free. 

 

That being said, I did read the wikia articles about each issue.   And then I started searching for Rocket's name.  Basically, I don't know what happened to him - but fandom would if he were dead.   He's not, or there's been no solid confirmation of his death.  I don't trust this tweet, because author's think they're teasing us, but I feel like it's lying to us to be mysterious.   Except this time?  The lie might work out in my favor.  

 

Art is typical comic style done well.   It's not that the writing is bad per se, but I feel like this team doesn't mesh, and won't as well as the original Guardians team did.  So it's basically the author trying to jam legos into toys that are 100% not legos, and when they finally jam together and kinda stay there he's like 'ta-da, see it works!' 

 

I mean, I guess, but not as well as you want me to think?

 

By the way, yes, I would have most likely found this one star more tolerable - at least - if Cates did an even semi-good Rocket that called everyone out on what d-holes they were.   And build explosives that blew up moons.   I mean, yeah, I kinda love him for that so hard!

The Little Engine That Could
The Little Engine That Could - Watty Piper,Doris Hauman,George Hauman

No matter how big or small you can achieve whatever you put your mind to, and that is what the little engine did. When a fellow train struggled with his carrier the little engine help against all odds.The leveling system The Lexile, reading level AD500L. At the beginning of the school year the students can right down a goal that they would like to complete in the first nine weeks and put into the class dream box. During the ninth week students can take their sheet of paper and reflect. The students can see if they accomplished their goal.

Friend by Fizza Younis

A friend like you is hard to find,

My foolish jokes you never mind.

I am glad to have such a friend,

You are my start and my end.

That is not all you’re much more,

I do love you that is for sure.

Our friendship started in an odd way,

But this is how it will always stay.

A friend like you comes by once in a lifetime,

Together, this ladder of friendship we must climb.

I love that you can say whatever you feel,

Your honesty was our friendships’ own seal.

I hope you think of me the same way,

To be loved back is now my only pray.
