The Day of Reckoning Approaches

Sorry homies/homettes, I've been super busy and haven't had much time to reflect or write. I have a lot of things on the way, I hope; an essay on zombies, a post on the best novels I read in 2010, and stories recounting past events even more whimsical and ridiculous are all in various stages of completion. I hope to produce a decent amount of content before Valentine's Day, certainly enough content for an afternoon and evening of lonely perusing, should this blog's audience possess certain significant attributes in common with its author.

However, this Friday I will be taking the GRE. This means that between now and then (assuming I possess a modicum of concern for my future) my spare time will primarily be devoted to the study of very, very basic concepts in algebra and geometry. Hopefully I'll be back to 8th-grade levels of mathematical competence by the end of the week. In the meantime, my roommate Dan's tumblr is unfailingly entertaining and informative.

Until next time, wish me luck - or pray for grace and peace for me, your choice.

there are many kinds of tests

T-Rex Lays Down Fat Beats!

For Christmas in '09, my friend Tim gave me an obese T-Rex plush toy from Dinosaur Comics. Well, a friend's friend sent in a picture of him to the dino comics website, and now that picture is being featured there for the whole internet to see!

The photographer discovered him in the basement of the house we rented last year, practicing Sex Bob-omb's opening song from the movie Scott Pilgrim Vs the World for a cover show. You can see the pic here. It is a beautiful candid action shot.

More to come... happy 2011!
