August 13, 2008

SKIPNOTE: I'm on vacation (starting today!) until the end of the month, so no Website Wednesdays for the next couple of weeks. I'll be updating the House of Chaos, but even that'll be a little spotty.

this morning and the vultures started circling.

August 6, 2008

I recently started eating a healthier diet -- not

autopsied and they check the contents of my stomach,
the medical examiner won't think I'm a complete pig.
