Working, but hopefully finishing before the last day of the football season starts.

I have now done the maths and figured out how many of my co-workers that I am old enough to have fathered.

On Saturday, we pretty much had half an hour of heat followed by ten minutes of rain and/or hail on a constant loop. It wasn't enjoyable at all.

Sunday was warm, today was a day.

Considering that today would happen to be one, this song is rather appropriate.

I want to stop coughing.

Be thankful you're not in my line of work.

I was really hacking it up on Wednesday and told my boss. In a normal job, you'd be sent home. In an understaffed theme park, you get moved somewhere "less strenuous".

Welcome to the new house. Like Fly, I'm sure I remember you.

I was also a beta reader for Skip. I remember sending him this pretty huge email with thoughts on the book and then I get this private message saying something like, "I was hitting publish on lulu as your email came through". We had a bit of a laugh about that one.

Convoluted plots have always been something of an obsession of mine. The idea of keeping people interested, regardless of whatever tangential whim you decide to follow, sounds like a lot of fun to me. I grew up surrounded by insane plot twists and slingshots full of storytelling tropes being thrown at the media I consumed.

I like it.

Anyway, here's a video where some guy tries to explain a story and this kinda set me down the path of going "oh yeah, bonkers stories can just be a lot of fun." I mean, the guy's explanation made me chuckle and I wanted to put a link to it somewhere and rambling about plot was something that I used to do so... that.

In this increasingly litigious world could we ask you to be more specific about what you desire, rather than a generic and easily misunderstood 'some'?

The correct response is, "You want some, come get some!"

Just sayin'.

As a non-theist who knows a fair bit about wrestling, they seem like a natural fit. Well, religions take kayfabe more seriously than most wrestling companies but apart from that it's almost uncanny.

Um, Pastry?
