How did old timey folk make it stop snowing? Was it an orgy followed by burning someone alive? At this point I'm willing to forgo the orgy.
Another zombie dream, nothing epic, just watching improperly fortified people get overrun and eaten in vivid detail. Kinda weird.

awesome day of geekery!

Yesterday, Tuesday, was a day full of geekery and shopping. I went to Charleston for some retail therapy, and I had the good fortune to be accompanied by my pals Andy & Robin.

The first stop was Drug Emporium (the one on Kanawha Blvd, not in Kanawha City) for some vitamins and healthy things to help mom's leg heal batter and faster. The we went for lunch at the Jamaican restauant but it was closed and gone. I'm so totally jonsing for some jerk!!! We had some yummy as hell BBQ wings and fried mushrooms at Leonard's instead. We got coffee at a local corner shop and climbed on the Mound.

*EDIT* Shit, I totally forgot the fun snacks I got at the Asian super market there by the Mound. I picked up some Kasugai kiwi and mango gummies, and some Ramune "POP soda" in peach, kiwi, and orange flavors.



Then off to Target where I got awesome Batman and Joker... things. I also picked up a Lego AT-ST mini kit (pictured farther down) and a couple of Magic booster packs. Then we went in Pier 1, Home Goods, and Michael's so I could find some Easter knick-knacks.





At Books-A-Million I got a couple magazines, Toyfare and a new one called Comic Heroes. It came in a card board envelope and had some freebies included. I'm a sucker for cool packaging, and considering the mag cost $20 those freebies weren't exactly free so I guess I'm just a sucker in general. I also got the first Game of Thrones novel, a little set of Moai heads, some DC heroes fridge magnets and badges and a neat-o Futurama mystery box. I got Leela.





Next we went to Toys R Us. I was hoping they still had some Venture Bros. figures but no such luck. I did pick up a couple of Lego minifigures. I got the samurai and the tennis girl. I really want the Hula gal.



After Corridor G we headed down to whatever Lost Legion calls their store in Charleston. I picked up a handful of Magic cards and a cool TPB.



After that we had dinner at IHOP then headed home. It was a good day on every level, even if I had to fix whatever my sister did to the lappy when I got home.

Tidbits about Tippy

I took Tippy Lou to the vet today for her fist check up, which really just amounted to shots and worm medicine. The vet guessed she was around 10 weeks old because she still has all her baby teeth. When the two big pointy teeth in the front fall out she'll be four months old and at that point will be half as big as she's gonna get. Also, he said she looks to be a mix of Boston Terrier and Bulldog. In three weeks I have to take her back with some poop. Hers, not mine.







hooray, successful 1st vet visit!

I don't like metal. I like skulls & swords & dragons & wizards & chicks in armor bikinis. I really like the devil. I just don't like metal.

I've seen things that can't be unseen. I'm different now. All flesh will burn.

PUPPY!

So when I went out to work this morning I discovered something new: a puppy. Somebody must have seen all our other dogs and decided we were a good place to drop off another one. We already have Goober, the fatso beagle, Elvis, the clueless basset, and we're temporarily housing my niece's mutt, Bubbles. I thought maybe, since she was clean and well fed, that she had wandered off from a neighbor's yard. I planned to go around and check when I came home. I figured dad would be chomping at the bit to get rid of her so I needed to act quickly.

But off and on throughout the day I mulled over keeping her and decided I would provided dad wasn't 50 shades of angry.

When I got home she was still around. I asked dad if he'd been outside to check her out and he said she was a pretty little pup. She's ours now. Everybody say hello to Tippy Lou. Ignore my goofy expression in that pic. I was trying to tell dad how to work my camera.

eel is a very potent flavor
Sometimes I wish I was a day person, sometimes I wish I was more cheerful, sometimes I wish I had a bomb. None of those will ever happen.

Chocolate bunny, in my belly you will find a new definition of pain and suffering as you are slowly digested over a thousand seconds.

Weird dream: I was standing in a big, black void and various aromas were presented to me and I had to imagine what they were or where they were from. Nothing gross, just things I'd never smelled before.
Happy Mardi Gras! I could really use a hurricane or twelve.

The roads are super slushy and slicker than they look so everybody be extra careful if you have to go out.
Really, Nature, you gonna do me like this? Kick me when I'm down? Fine. I'm gonna go throw some trash in a river.

I feel fine during the day but my fever keeps coming back at night.

I felt pretty decent when I woke up but I'm getting more blugh as the day wears on.

It could be a combination of being very tired and my sinuses acting up but I'm pretty sure I have a cold and/or flu bug.

Who knows the answer? If you (whom I've never seen before) ask if you get a good customer discount are you going to get one?
