"I'm soooo bored"

I hate it when the stores close too early, and as a restaurant customer I don't have anywhere to go, except the theater.

News from the NYC Comic Con

At a surprise joint press conference, the publishers of Marvel Comics, DC Comics, and Solson Comics announced that this year's "Free Comic Book Day" is cancelled. They cited the poor economy as the reason. "We just can't afford to give away comics this year" said Stan Lee.
"All you dumbasses who voted for George Bush have only yourselves to blame" said Carmine Infantino."I guess you're all freed up to go see the Iron Man movie now..."

More news as it happens...

Read this story.

Could Be Meat, Could Be Cake...

So, my "day job" sent me to Texas, where I was working in the basement of the Alamodome for a week. We had one day off so a bunch of us drove to a place up near Austin to eat Barbecue. They served us "Family Style", which meant they kept bringing out big plates of meat, mashed potatoes and beans for us to eat.

We also had a big bowl of beans, but it looked just like the empty bowl they gave us to put used bones into, and I accidentally put one of my bones into the beans. Nobody wanted to eat any beans after that. (On the ride back to San Antonio, this turned out to be a good thing.)

Meanwhile, "Nils" was taking pictures of a tiny Gumby and Pokey.

A couple of us ordered blackberry cobbler, and it looked really good, but I had eaten too much meat and potatoes, so I didn't have any.

:: Since then, I've been really jonesing for blackberry cobbler. ::

"Where'd Everybody Go?"
