The Return of Random Thoughts!  How long will it last? Nobody knows!

I am amused that people still, to this day, build websites that ‘require’ Internet Explorer.

* * *

Random Thoughts“…based on your writing, and descriptions of how a cat acts, I’m assuming you’ve had a cat before.”

Um. Yeah.  *points to website, twitter feed, claw marks on my arm, broken spirit reflected in my eyes*

* * *

I wish Colorado wasn’t a ‘swing state’. We get sooooooooooooooooooooooooo many political ads.

* * *

Whatever happened to Gumby?

* * *

*Hollywood* “Sir? We have a problem.”

“What sort of problem?”

“According to our spreadsheet, we’re running out of ways to fuck with Patrick Hester’s childhood memories”

“…my god!  We need shitty movies based on stuff he liked growing up!  Is there nothing left?  Summer 2013 is counting on us!”

“Mac and cheese, Hawaiian Punch, Connect-Four and Stretch Armstrong.”

“Okay, we reboot Stretch Armstrong.”

“How?!  There’s nothing there!”

“WE CAN RUIN IT IF WE PUT OUR HEADS TOGETHER!  Maybe do a Connect-Four Stretch Armstrong crossover?”

“…brilliant.  That shit will stink so bad he’ll cut himself!”

* * *

I have one of the 1st holographic trading cards Marvel produced – Spider-Man battling Venom.  With the reboot movie here, this popped into my head.

*Writer’s Group*

“I don’t want you to get a big head or anything, but you’re a really good writer.  I just love your stuff.”

“You won’t give me a big head, and thank you.”

*one hour later* “…can’t…fit…massive…swollen…head…into…car…”

* * *

“Welcome to McDonalds, what can we make for you today?”

“Hi. I’m a Hugo Nominated Podcaster – I’d like a free Big Mac.”

“Um.  What’s a Hugo?”


* * *

(of course that didn’t happen. but it could…)

* * *

“So what do you do?”

“I’m a full time writer at the moment.”

“That’s cool!”

“Nah, that just means I’m unemployed.”

    I was thinking of Gumby, in relation to the book I just read…

    That had crossed my mind, too. Now you are a full-time writer. How are you using the gift of joblessness?

    Well, I know you’re spending about 20 hours a week in the editing suite, but other than that.

    I HATED Gumby. Also Davy & Goliath and every other kid cartoon. Except Bugs Bunny. Bugs is da bomb.:)TX
