Totally gratuitous

I know that this is totally gratuitous, but I just want to celebrate the glory of Diet Coke. None of that nasty Coke Light they serve in Europe, but the good stuff. I searched for a long time online to find a clean picture of Diet Coke, but they all have text and stuff. Here are the two I found:

I don't know about you all, but damn, I'm thirsty. Gotta go to Circle K.

A Week Away - Books 12,13, and 14

So while spending the week abroad I was unable to find time to update the blog, but I was able to get my books in for the week. I read a volume of Transgressions, a collection of novellas; More Twisted, a collection of short stories; and Escape Clause, another Bill Tasker book from James Born. All of these were pretty good, but I have no time to get into them, so HA!

Book #10-11 Moore of the same

Okay, I am just going to own up to it. I am going to finish the Chris Moore catalog by the end of spring break. Like I stated earlier, I go in phases when I read so it should be no surprise that I read a couple of more of Chris' books. These were both excellent books featuring characters who appear in Moore's other books. It was really kind of cool to see these characters in different settings. The books aren't sequels, but share settings. It is really a difficult thing to describe. Good books, next up is Bloodsucking Fiends.

How much cocaine

does it take to make you smile like this? Really, I want to know, because as I get older and more delusional, I might want to give it a shot. Hopefully it will kill me before I get there.


Past perfect

No, not a grammatical concept, although we could go there if you choose, this little Youtube nugget is the intro to one of the coolest television shows of the 80's. I wanted a van like that sooo bad. Someday, I just might have to get one.

I'm sure I'll have to fight themo about it, but by then I'd be the coolest grandpa ever!

Book #9 - The Stupidest Angel

To close the week is another Christopher Moore book. I know, I said I was going to take a break, but these books are pretty fun to read, so here is Moore's zombie Christmas tale. It is pretty short, but funny and engaging. I enjoyed it immensely, I am in the middle of a huge John Irving book that just isn't cutting it. I'll get through it, but it is work.
