Oh, What The Heck.

Things need livened up around here. And I suck at art. (Well, I suck at a number of things, but I’m trying to keep this PG-13). I need artwork. I need a personality. I need a life. So, in the esteemed footsteps of Rocket Jones and Truth Laid Bear I’m opening the files for a […]

Thank God the day is over.

Ever had a day that no matter how busy you were, it crept by? That would be Thursday, May 5. As annoying as it was, it’s now over. Dinner was a cheeseburger and some awesome pasta. Poor Tink, however, keeps squawking “Not Dead Yet!” so that I don’t take her out back and throw her […]
