Marvelous Sidebar:

Woo-hoo! The October issue of Truckin' is up! Yay!

And man, am I in good company. The inimitable BG's in there--I love how he intermingles the two aspects of his past until they're nearly indistinguishable--as is the brilliant Dr. Pauly with his gritty-but-witty portrayals of humanity at its best and worst. And Kristie, another newcomer like me, reminds us of a time we'd better never forget with aching prose and vivid imagery. And then, there's Sigge, everyone's favorite Norwegian novelist, who's hilariously serious treatise on how to be a shaman made me laugh out loud.

In other words, go check it out!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled blogging...

...as soon as you go check out Truckin'! *big grin*

Awww... kissing my ass will get you everywhere! Oh, and you were in the war? Nice stuff. Glad to entertain.

I'd actually planned to pucker up a little better in the "comments" section, but hey! Here's fine, as well.

Of course I was in the war. As a man, to boot! Thus are the vagaries of fate.

Thanks again for sharing your blood work and for pimping Truckin'!

*grin* No prob, Dr. Pauly!

In a few days, I'll probably link it over in the "More About" column under "Shameless Pimpin". *grin*

Thanks for the support:)

..still can't figure out why people call me "everyone's favorite Norwegian novelist." How many Norwegian novelists do you guys know, I could ask. But I won't. I'll just cuddle up like a cozy cat in the comfy chair and hold my breath. That's what I'll do.

Great entry on the spider!
I have this thing with flying insects going "wooosh!" right in front of me when I'm reading the Tao. I've lost many nights of sleep thanks to them. If there ever was a God I think he sniggered good after he'd created these creatures, thinking something along the "that'll show them!" line. Or maybe he just had such a weak sense of humor, thinking that everyone would point and laugh at these long-legged, hairy monsters and consider him really cool, having created them. Maybe that was it. He wanted to impress some broad.

I really can't tell.
It was never such a great concept to boggle at.

*grin* I just called you that because it was on the intro line.... I really did get a kick out of the "how to be a holy figure" story, though. Cracked me up!

My buddy Dave has a deathly fear of flying, buzzing things, too. I've seen him run 30 feet, jump a good six feet into the air to clear my high porch and three piled bags of mulch, do a backflip, and get the front door unlocked and opened in the time it took me to get a good belly laugh started -- which, if you know me, ain't too shabby. *grin*

Ironically enough, he's NOT afraid of spiders....

I don't have a problem with spiders either. If you just talk to them, they go away. They're probably bored or something.

Either way, you should always apologize before killing them. It's not their fault. They're probably just a little confused. Gives you better karma... but I'm thinking I might be talking to the wall here, right?

In Cuba, however, me and my roommate encountered 12 inches wide moths at three occasions. We lived in the penthouse, and I figure these creatures came up there to die. That's what they did, eventually. I have pictures of them. Blurred because I was shaking with fear and trembling in angst-ridden joy.

Oh, I apologized vociferously...for not having a sledge hammer handy to fully pulverize it! Egad!

Yeah, man. Right to the wall. *grin*

My karma's already crooked, so I don't think killing one more spider in a long and distinguished line of dead spiders will throw it any further off.

However, foot-wide moths sound COOL!
