Comical

March 17, 2004

So, this is what happens in my neighborhood while I’m at work! Ironic too, because I drove by the appartment that this guy lives (well, lived) in and there’s a For Rent sign out front. Guess you can only botch a bank robbery once and then they’re on to you….

There were 2 comic strips that I thought were of note recently. First Get Fuzzy gets the world’s worst pun award, and then PvP accurately captures one of the pitfalls of being involved with someone who share your interests. (The subject of this strip is the reason that even though I have in my posession the DVD of Underworld, I dare not watch it untill
Raven can watch it with me. I already got burned on that once for going to see Reign of Fire when Raven was out of town!

And yes of course the pun was intentional….

On the Road Again, Part I

March 12, 2004

I have recently done some traveling, and there is more on the way! Today’s excerpt is regarding my visit to Empire Buffet IV in Michigan. I must say that while the original Empire Buffet was a swashbuckling high-seas adventure, the subsequent sequels had left much to be desired. Empire Buffet IV: Try The Dim Sung, returns the series to its thrilling beginnings and leaves you wanting more! It’s a good thing it’s “All you can eat!”.
The menu there has the best Chinese Zodiac Placemats I have ever seen. The fact that I can garner career advice while shoveling in the Sesame Chicken is really an idea whose time has come. I personally wanna know what I can do to change my career advice to secret agent! (Reminder: I was born in the year of the Dragon.)

It’s a bird, it’s a plane…

March 2, 2004

It’s Super Tuesday!

Today is the day us Minnesotans get to go and vote for who we want to run against miserable failure©. Raven & I have decided to stay the course, and vote for Dennis Kucinich. He may not win the nomination, but we are going to stick to our conscience and make sure the democratic party and their nominee remember that there are still some of us who want a choice in who represents us, and will not bow to the weight of “inevitability” when deciding who gets our support.

Have you heard about Hawaii? Dennis came in second place there, got 27% of the vote, 8 delegates, and yet it’s hardly even mentioned in the media. Well, we’re going to stay involved. The only way anything ever changes is through continued effort.

Incidentally, be sure and read this amazingly researched & detailed essay: An Interesting Day. It is reason #932,342,767 that W has got to go.

Drink more water? I think not.

Cats are hilarious.
