Kumoricon room

Filed under: Random — Etakeh @ 10:31 am

Seems like this is the best way to make sure we have what we need to get into the room for Kumoricon.

Click the link and make the payment, and that will be the account I pay for the room out of.

It’s imperative that everyone contribute their part, because I don’t think any of us can really afford to make up the difference (and still be able to eat and get some goofy shit at the convention).

The 7-person split makes it $65 per person, for the 3 days.  Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The hotel is the Comfort Inn, which is about 10-15 by foot, 5 driving.  The room has a king bed and a hide-a-bed.

Righto!  Click the Button.

That’s just sad, really.

The fact that we need “crowd management” for sales.  Is sad.

But obviously necessary, when you look over past years.  It was great, seeing our proud and wonderful country headlining even in British papers – because of department store tramplings and so forth.

I’ll still probably apply.  Might be worth it for the entertainment value, huh?

It’s A Love Story. Springfield Style.

Filed under: Random — Etakeh @ 10:08 pm

We decided to run to a nearby taco place for dinner, and while in the parking lot I noticed a sort of…flow to the other businesses.

It started at the Westend Tavern.  Their eyes met across the crowded bar, and they knew (after a few shots and some nachos) that it was meant to be.


He decided that the best way to prove his undying love would be to run next door for a tattoo of her name…no, her FACE, emblazoned across his chest.


Of course, being a Springfieldian, she was of course enchanted.  After a brief make-out session in the back of his Pinto, they set the date, and the preparations began.

First stop, flowers!  Oh, it’s hydroponics?  What the hell is that, even?  Oh well.  Give me a bouquet of pot leaves, that’ll do.


Next stop, the beauty shop!  Gotta get those roots touched up, extensions adjusted and how about some color-blocking ala “Sons of Anarchy” hottie Gemma.  And let’s get a trim for that mullet, boyo!  You’re looking like a hippie!


They were getting a little impatient to consummate their undying love, and love was on their side this day.  A zodiac wedding chapel?  OMG you’re a Sagittarius?  I’m an Aries!  OHEMGEE!

And they do vehicle lettering and LED signing – does that mean a big, bright JEST MARIED sign on the back of the Pinto?  I think it does!


Now for the reception…perfect!  Food, drink and video gambling!   Get the DJ from the wedding place and call the folks, we got us a shindig!


But really, all that tequila from Westend (see above) is starting to take its toll.  Fortunately, the Bistro has that covered.  Hair of the dog, and hangover cures!


Well, I think we all know how this story ends.  A long, happy life together…oh, did she mention Tommy, the crazy ex…and Brenda, his baby mama?  Kids?  You never said you had kids!  Well I was gunna, soon as you explain what Tommy’s saying about your daddy-brother!


The End.

Another bird

Filed under: Animals,Random — Etakeh @ 8:43 pm

Once again, a less-than-full-grown bird has happened into our lives in need of help.  The difference is, this one looks like it might have a chance of surviving.

My daughter found it – it’s a pigeon by the way – in the dirt under the overpass near my work.  It didn’t make any move to get  up or escape, so she thought it might be hurt.  She had part of a shirt she’d been taking apart with her, so she used it to pick it up and bring it to me.  I borrowed a carrier from work and brought it home.

I took him home. I took him out of the carrier and took a good look at him. He seems fine – doesn’t have any asymmetry or anything like he’s broken a wing, doesn’t fight or struggle like anything hurts. He’s obviously uncomfortable at being handled, but I think being that young helped him adapt to the situation somewhat.

The thing is, his legs don’t seem to work. At all. They are just kind of there and floppy. He can push himself along the ground with his wings, and seems to be somewhat practiced at it, but the legs just drag behind. Otherwise, he seems fine. He’s eating, drinking, reacting to his surroundings; all the stuff a bird should be doing. Just can’t use those feet.

Time will tell how this turns out, but maybe…just maybe…this one will live.
