You can't see it, but I'm shrugging.

Just some random shit because lately it appears I have nothing really to rant about anymore. (Funny thing - ever since we bought the house, with all its adult responsibilities, the mortgage, the various home-improvement projects, the longer commute, etc...a strange contentment has come over me, and I just don't feel like my usual cantankerous self. Huh. Let's call this post a figurative shrug...or something.)

*I've been watching the most BIZARRE TV series on HBO lately. Mormons and polygamists...and let me tell you, it's definitely very, very creepy. But it is also eerily fascinating, and I can't look away.

*I will be starting another blog soon. It'll be even more anonymous than this one, and I won't link to it here, or tell anybody what it's called or where to find it. I'm going to use it to write character studies, and test my hand at fiction-writing. Maybe someday I'll have enough for some short stories or something (Perhaps a novel? Naaaaah....Fuck me, that's WAY too ambitious for now, and I don't want to put too much pressure on myself.) Anyway, I have a few character outlines just about ready. Now, if I could just think up something for them to do....

*If you enjoy shooting gallery games, and have an axe to grind with me, then Junior, by all means, hie thee immediately over to BLUNT COGS . Monstee has created a hilarious shoot-em-up game starring myself and all the other cast of Blunt Cogs characters. Now's your chance to blow my smart-ass head off, as well as those of Paris Hilton, Bush, Cheney, a terrorist, etc. (However, I'm one of the GOOD GUYS in the game, and you actually do LOSE points by shooting there's that.)

*I'm currently reading this book. It's basically a list of alcoholic writers and a rundown of their worst moments. I'm learning a lot, and building a good reading list out of it, but it is just about the most poorly-edited work I've ever read. Sentences missing verbs, conjuctions repeating themselves, commas where no comma should's disturbing. Did NO ONE proofread this thing at all?

*Cape Cod white cheddar popcorn is a far superior product to Smartfood.

Two things come to mind...

1- this book sounds good - I love reading other people's follies - makes mine look so much less embarrassing.

2 - I NEVER knew that about the Cape Cod White Cheddar - will have to give it a try soon. PMS has struck - perhaps tomorrow.

You don't suppose the writing is so bad because they were drunk when they were writing do you...?

You just described my blog. And I'm mostly sober.
