    I do not know enough to know what the DC universe is.

    Last night internet started working again so that was cool. We re-watched Dinner for Schmucks and a few episodes, for the hundredth time, of The Office. Nice feeling a little normal for 2-3 hours.

    Have a good one all.

    Also this is the first time in the last 3 years that I actually wished I had a true smart phone.

    Same. This morning was the first time I’d visited it.

    That one cost me a credit. I still want to get to it before Pale Battalions GO is released. Two books ahead it at this time so I should be good.

    Actually, I believe The Sandman was free with Audible+. I usually use credits so forget what's free and isn't.

    It also mentions a third installment:

    Makes sense if they're the ones writing the checks.

    I've added a couple of titles as well from there. Although not free, I'm currently listening to The Sandman.
