    Umm.... banana.

    It was the first thing that came to mind. I blame my son. He's 2 weeks away from his sixteenth birthday and has taken to walking up to me and speaking random words. Banana is one of his favorites. Sometimes it's another piece of fruit. Sometimes I can't figure it out at all. He's generally a good kid and I can't tell if he's just fucking with me or sincerely crackers. I suppose time will tell.

    I'm writing this from work. It's 4:16 in Dallas Texas and I should be at home at least 3 drinks into the day. I think I'll go home now. Drinks are in order. It's been a long week.

    Roof of the mouth.

    But then you couldn't talk on the phone too.

    Which would be fine, I spose.

    It would also make it look like you're blowing the gun, which would make an awesome .gif if you kinda pretended to do that all kinky like, then really splattered your brains out the back of your head. You'd be interweb famous forever.

    I'm enjoying this saturday night in the company of mead and prescription strength co-codamol. Sadly, if I have too much that'd be a rubbish gif, so I'm not going to bother filming myself, but I could update by failbook statuses with how it's going, for posterity.

    At least that's marginally better than doing a Hemingway. Revolver's less messy, but still a grisly find for whoever trips over your corpse in the morning.

    So, I took my fuzzy eye to the doctor on Wednesday. Turns out it's not a floater that's been bedevilling my vision, it's the early stages of macular degeneration. I'm booked in with the specialist in May, so I can find out whether I'm going to go blind or not.

    Now I'm going to go and drink a lot.

    Going to St. Louis for the evening for a birthday party, drinking, and food. Would have liked to have made Planet Comicon this weekend, but conflicting schedule has made it not possible.

    My in-laws bought me a bottle of Glenlivet today. Then I bought a bottle of Hobgoblin and some Banana Bread Beer.

    PS: Warren isn't Batman. I am. GOODBYE.

    I just changed the fuel filter on my truck. to my knowledge, this is the first time it's ever been changed. they're supposed to be changed every 30,000 miles. the odometer in my truck says just a shade over 253k. I'm expecting at least moderate performance improvements. work starts in about an hour, so I probably need to go get my truck off the jack stand and put away the tools.

    Chances are he'll miss and become just anther youtube oddity and challenge to reconstructive surgery. Meself, i've always fancied drifting off in a nice fluffy cloud of opiates, don't forget the anti emetic though or things could get messy.

    Greetings Kiddies, i have today seen more bread and baked goods than any man should in a lifetime and am delirious through beer (forbidden) and lack of sleep. It is spring and the roadsides are lined with pretty flowers.Tomorrow i intend to head off into the countryside to enjoy the scenery and a nice pub lunch in the company of an old and now married friend. Funny how things turn out.

    Best wishes to you all, if it's good, enjoy it, if it's not, hang on and keep going, it'll pass and things will get better.

    Unless, of course, you pull the trigger.

    OKAY, UMM....

    I got a package from the person my ex cheated on with me. It was ODD. (EDIT: It was: A book he recalled that I had some passing interest in three years ago and a letter explaining the book and saying that he and my ex broke up. That's it.)

    I went to a hockey game to take pictures. I didn't know what was going on, but assumed that getting the piece of rubber in the net was GOOD.

    I took pictures of an accountant who I took pictures of before and will do so again for something else, apparently. She's really nice and the whole thing took an HOUR.

    I went to a pub near where my office is. They have over 50 selections of international beers on tap as well as several in bottle. I was told they were hiring and first thing Monday I'll be going in with my resume and putting my best Beer-Knowledge/Passion face on because I think I will be PERFECT.

    But none of that matters because JAZZ HANDS!

    I knocked the garden wall down with a car at Christmas. After failing repeatedly to rebuild it, partner called builders in to do it today and took great pleasure in pointing out my incompetence to them... which grates a little...

    I now have no money, they have it all. But the wall is back up. Which I suppose is good.

    I've spent the rest of the day in the garden, pottering and plotting where to grow vegetables. Have a car full of compost and topsoil, want to put a whole load of new beds in, and get early seeds planted. The kids pottered around with me, which was nice. My partner set up a treasure hunt for them, and they ran around looking for hidden sweets.

    Tomorrow I will see my grandfather for the first time in over a year, which I am very much looking forward to. Have felt quite detached from my family, they seem to be all quite close knit and I've been peripheral, which makes me quite sad. I don't know why, it just seems to have happened, I noticed it very acutely at a meal a couple of weeks ago where I arrived late with my own family, didn't manage to integrate into the conversations and left feeling like I didn't really belong. That has never hit me before, and it affected me quite badly.

    Several friends/acquaintances are exposing their right wing leanings on Facebook today by pouring scorn on the cuts protests. I'm trying to resist piling in and arguing, and am restraining myself to throwing the odd barb in. Bastards. People just ain't no good.

    Normal week of production. Everyone watching dailies says the show is better. I watch and just shrug. Still not what it could be.

    We were supposed to go to a birthday party but our son wasn't feeling well so it has been a day of comics reading for me.

    Gotham Central is as great as everyone has ever told me and makes me a bit depressed that Warner Brothers and DC Comics don't know what they are sitting on. I can see in my head how I would do it as a show for TNT.

    Casanova is rock-n-role as comics and is a bit dizzying and disorienting, and I do love it so. And how anyone can read the backmatter in Casanova and not want to be involved comics is just not understandable to me.

    Still need to read the latest Captain Swing and New Your Five tonight.

    I woke up today from dreaming about how to make commercials for one of my favorite sites and brands: The Original Winger/Bumpy Pitch. I am sick in the head. I dream of production. Of course this has also inspired an idea for a short soccer film.

    Pic of me at work this week watering plants for Set Dec. I despise this picture. At least it is motivating me to lose weight.

    Listen to Mike's podcast or the idiot gets it! (and you can, just put it up:

    ...feeling strange currents passing today...

    procrastinating on getting my tax paperwork together and on doing my laundry. Tomorrow, then? Yes? Good.

    been writing the new novel, passed the 47k word mark Thursday. Haven't counted today, yet. Got distracted... strike that, wanted distractions. So I came here.

    My wife, who is very pregnant, is due today but was told on Wednesday that not only is she not dilated, she's hardly effaced and the boy hasn't dropped yet (though, thankfully, he is head down). She is very much over the magic that is being pregnant and instead has taken to telling our son to get out. I, being a nerd, have been helping by advising "THE ENEMY'S GATE IS DOWN!" which earns me one of The Looks(tm) as my wife is not an OSC fan at all.

    Other than that, this week has been catching up with old friends I haven't seen in a long time, trying to write as much as I can before I become a Proud New Parent (aka a zombie), and trying to be as encouraging as I can be.
