Your blog reminded me that I have a court date in a couple weeks. I'm suing Optimus Prime for touching me in a "NO" zone. (What can I say; I was stupid. But when a big fuckin' robot asks "Wanna go for a ride? I turn into a truck!", how are you supposed to respond?!)

I have seen two moose in the wild. In Maine. Both times from the comfort of a motor vehicle. The first was about mid-state, we were in a bus, and a state trooper was tossing stones at the poor thing to move it away from the highway. TAhe second time I was in a VW Bug, having dropped my brother off at Maine Maritime Academy in Castine. Toodling along, I glanced to the right & thouhgt, `fucking big horse.` Looked again, slammed on the brakes and said, `Damn! It is a fucking Moose!` They are BIG, UGLY, and magnificent critters. I do not, however, want the image of one on my ass.

Nor the physical imposition of its antlers there, either, I presume. Laughing

I'm thinking more of a 'caped buffalo' clothing line. Those things are mean as hell.

True story: Does anyone here remember 'harem pants'? They were a big fad in this area in the mid 80's. They were cotton jersey pants that had a yoke for a waistband. They were cute if you weighed less than, say, 130 pounds and were at least 5' 6" (which I was not, so I stayed WAY away from them). There was a girl at my school that had a pair of them in a black and white dairy cow print. It was one of those jaw-dropping sights as she was probably a good 200+ pounds and not too tall. I didn't know her, so I never got to find out if she really had brass balls or if she just didn't get it.

So do you really WANT to work out?

You are going to a real gym in San Francisco?

High quotient of very hot gay guys working out in the SF gyms.

NO heterosexual guy is EVER as hot as a hot gay guy. If you are on the treadmill between two really hot gay guys well that gym will never see you again. Wow when I just read that line it made me kind of warm! Embarassed

It will only make you feel inferior and you will be back to walking up those hills and saying THAT was my workout.


By the way, YAY, you sent in your book. When is it going to be out? When is Dirty Job coming out in paperback??

... I got distracted by the fact that you said you turned in the book. Fuck yeah. XD

But the A&F logo? Crazy. A girl's got a moose on her ass? Crazier. *sigh* Gyms... grr.

Yeah, but it's funnier than moose. Did I mention that I am the Author Guy and can therefore make-up words as I please because I am the Author Guy? Ha!


And let me add: Ha!
