<p>I've been working at The Dreaming for a few weeks now. Its a comic shop on the Ave. in the U. District of Seattle. Its owned and run by just one dude, Aron. Let me tell you, working at a comic shop is <em>awesome!</em> My last shot at working at a comic shop was ...sub optimal. I attribute that to the management not being very friendly or not 'in the trenches', but mainly to the fact that i was one of 15 or 20 employees at two locations of the store. Here, its just me and Aron (someone also helps him with the wednesday order breakdown).</p>

<p>Also different is that I'm just working on projects not running the register and stuff. I like that. First up I'm alphabetizing 20,000 or so back issues. Then doing some sort of clearance sale to trim a lot of the fat. Later,  I'll be building some software that helps reduce some of the mundane work of subscriptions, re-/ordering and maybe P.O.S. stuff.</p>

<p>Lately, I've started reading more single issues again to cover some of the areas that Aron doesn't like/have time for/know about. I bring home a pile of some title read as many as there are to get caught up on it, then write up a little review, design up a little card (4 x 6) and tack them up at the shop on the shelf. Its a lot of freaking fun.</p>

<p>This is quickly becoming a dream job. Given nothing totally wonky happens in the forseeable future, I could see myself staying with this for quite some time. Knock on wood. [ Knock. Knock.]</p>

<p>I'll post reviews as I write them.</p>
