Long day at work. Blah. Need chocolate. No chocolate. Ugh. Can't blog.

When one stops off at a major chain bookstore on the way home and buys a couple of volumes of Slayers manga, it is a novel experience for the sales assistant to exclaim:
We're stocking Slayers now? That's so cool! I used to read Jump when I lived in Japan.(Jump is the weekly magazine in which the Slayers manga originally appeared.)
I forgot my 20% discount coupon, though. Darn.

The whale attracted a lot of onlookers both before and after it exploded.

Darn them to heck!
I can hardly see to read Lileks. Woe!
Because otherwise I have no idea what the photographer is trying to say here.
Those clouds are getting pretty dark. Do you think it looks like rain?
I hope not. I don't have an umbrella.
Neither do I. Uh oh -
pitpat pitter patter
Maybe we'd better find shelter!
crack! rumble rumble
I don't think it will last long. We can just wait it out.
ceerack! rumble rumble
How close do you think that lightni -
Who is Wonkette, who are Media Whores Online, who is this Rittenhouse dude, and why should I care that they are engaged in an unseemly public squabble?
Piss off the lot of you.

The letters from my granddaughter Trixie can now be found in the archives for January 2104 over on the left.
At least until she sends me another letter and my template catches fire...
Mama is a 4th Grader is now coming out on fansub.
Whaddya think of that, Trixie?
I was wondering why, whenever a new mail virus-worm thingy breaks loose and wreaks havoc across the internet (or "web" as the Australian Broadcasting Corporation would have it), causing Windows and Exchange administrators to tear out what little hair they have left and Linux users to wet themselves laughing, I don't get any.
Does no-one love me?
Could it be that most people I know are not virus-worm-thingy-spreading idiots so that I am at least two stages removed from the major pool of infection?
Or could it be - oh look - that my spam filter is merrily gobbling them all up. Dozens of them. How amusing.
You do love me after all!
I was wondering who would be the next victim.
Turns out it's Marc Miyake, who explains why Manga rocks and Amekomi sucks.
So sad to see a brave man fall.

Some posts just write themselves:
The response to the Turkey & Gravy Jones Soda has been incredible. Thank you for your interest and patience in regards to this soda. We apologize if you were not able to get your hands on the Turkey & Gravy Jones Soda. Since this was a premium edition with limited quantities in Michigan and Washington region, we sold out pretty quickly. However, due to the huge interests from our consumers, we will be better prepared to meet everyone's need next year. All the sales from Turkey & Gravy soda will be going to Toys for Tots. If you sign up for our free Jones Soda newsletter, you will get advance notice of future premium flavors.No, really.
(Thanks to Sam Kington in Tim Blair's comments.)
The Penguin Baseball thingy seems to keep disappearing from the web, so I snarfed a copy...
And here it is!

I didn't post anything today because I was spending quality time with the grandkids.
