    Good to hear, sir.

    And by the way, I hate to inform you that Cash Cab is not your hallucination. The good news is that since they have cameras outside the cab, that the cameramen get raped and skinned too.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    More good news is that so far <a target="_blank" href="http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1817833,00.html?imw=Y">Time Magazine</a> hasn't made any connection at all between Wizard World and the freak bird attacks. So everything is going according to plan.<blockquote>In recent days, Chicago has endured baby tsunamis and threats of tornadoes. Just last week, the authorities pulled a prickly five-foot-long alligator from the Chicago River. In April, police fatally shot a 150-lb. cougar in an alley of a leafy neighborhood in this city's heart. America's third-largest city is becoming some kind of remote Amazonian outpost. Now come The Birds.

    It's hard to know precisely when the red-winged blackbird, <i>Agelaius phoeniceus</i>, is about to attack. The birds tend to swoop in, hitting victims from behind. Sometimes, the birds take turns attacking victims. It's unclear, however, if the red wing attacks from its beak, which is usually sharp and cone-like, or with its feet. Given the bird's size, the danger is more likely to come not from the attack itself, but from the reaction to it. For instance, a newly attacked bicyclist veers into the path of an oncoming bicycle. Or car. Or an attack so deeply traumatizes a child that she doesn't want to be near birds again. Nevertheless, "it's startling," says David Willard, manager of the bird collection at the Field Museum, who has himself been attacked by a red wing. In previous years, Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo has hoisted signs near ponds warning its patrons: "Red Wing Black Birds in the Area. Walk Around."</blockquote>You should see <a target="_blank" href="http://scottedelman.livejournal.com/54665.html">Scott Edelman's house</a>. Holy shit.

    Don't forget the purell while handshaking. You think I am joking, but no, I am mental. Anyway, it'll help you stop catching cold bugs and the like.

    @warrenellis

    I saw you too (eyes are still recovering, btw).

    I was surprised William undid the chains and let you leave the table. ;)

    surely someone could make a prosthetic palm sized latex pus oozing boil infested accessory for Mr Ellis to wear and scare the bejesus out of anyone that comes near ? hand-shaking problem solved and quite possibly make the headlines at the same time.
