I know Stush saw my post on Facebook, but we just got confirmation that the neighbor who feeds and provides a doghouse for the local stray cat is moving away. With absurdly low temperatures on the horizon, today I took corrective action and snatched that cat. She's currently sequestered in our bathroom. This is a temporary solution; we already had four cats and this complex only allows you to have one. Still, this is for the best.

The correct joke response is "Wait... BeatBandit was Rygaron?"

It took me a ridiculously long time (3 hours) to make a pizza but it was totally worth it.

Had a bunch of fresh veggies I needed to use up, so I made my own tomato sauce.

I started a garden a couple of years ago; most of the plants died but I still have some rosemary and oregano. So I decided to put them in.

First bite had a really bitter aftertaste, so I added more tomatoes. Then it was sweet, but still with a bitter aftertaste. It had been awhile by this point and I didn't want to fuck with it anymore, so I decided to hope the bitterness would cook out.

I added some grilled eggplant and (also grilled) peppers. Crust was just a Boboli.

Took longer to make than it should have, but totally worth it. The bitterness did indeed cook out of the herbs, and the garden rosemary was really the star of the show.

I sure as hell can't take 3 hours to fix dinner every night, but man, when I get around to it I do all right.

Used to do it more often when I was in college. Would make enchiladas or lasagna or suchlike, have my friends over. Good times.

DreamHost (who park a couple of domains for me and no more) sends out the weirdest fucking newsletters:

Ladies. Gentlemen. And those who take offense to the notion of either.

I'm sure you're wondering why I've invited you here this evening. I trust your drivers were professional but remained silent on this matter as they were instructed.

I've gathered you here at this abandoned warehouse on the seedy side of town not because you are smart, not because you are powerful, and not because you are rich. Those may have been prerequisites, but they are certainly not your most valuable attribute.

At least not tonight.

Take a look down at...your hands. Hold them to the light and take a moment to appreciate their subtle, nuanced contours.

Make a slow fist and watch the back of your hand closely as every muscle plays its part in wordlessly obeying your command.

Marvel at the power you wield with a single thought!

You hold beauty; you hold perfection - all within arm's reach.

Your hands are, to put it bluntly, exquisite. Flawless. Pristine.

You first came to my attention when one of my scouts discovered your DreamHost-hosted website. I suspected that such online perfection could not possibly have been created through the labors of misshapen, unmanicured, monkey paws. And I was right.

Look at the hands of those around you. Take a good look. Don't be shy.

I assure you, you'll find not a double joint, pre-cancerous lesion, liver spot, misproportioned set of fingers, or unmanicured cuticle among you - you beautiful website building savants!

Have you ever...considered a life without computers? When the first EMP is detonated and entire cities of electronics are rendered useless in the blink of an eye, how will you go on?

There are those of us who believe that this Internet of ours is as "permanent" as the Hanging Gardens of Babylon or the lost city of Atlantis.

I represent a group of people who foresee, and are actively planning for, a return to simpler times.

When those times come, what will you do? How will you make your living?

I've brought you all here to open your eyes to a world in need. A world that needs you. All of you.

Beneath the spotlight to my left you see a wooden box. It's not a shoebox, though its size may give you that impression. Note the two holes on either end.

Watch closely now as I pull back its miniature velvet curtain.

Yes that is, in fact, a small wrestling mat.

Ladies. Gentlemen. Whatevers.

Welcome to Finger Fight Club - the most exclusive underground thumb wrestling circuit in the world. We have chapters spanning six continents and our membership roster includes heads of state, captains of industry, Nobel Prize winners, and those who deal in the Shadow World.

The pay is generous, but insignificant.

The work is hard, though rewarding.

The prestige is immeasurable.

Now I'd like to...wait. What's that crashing sound?

Nobody's supposed to know we're here. Hendricks! Tanqueray! You two go check the loading dock and...OH GOD EVERYBODY RUN! IT'S A RAID!

IT'S THE FEDS! AKCKCKAKKACK NO NO NO NO I'M FULL OF BULLETS!

MY HANDS!

MY BEAUTIFUL HANDS! AHHHHH!

-Brett

Maybe he's trying a more extreme form of viral marketing. Or maybe he's just out of his tiny little mind.

Wow, that's way better than the newsletter I get for my Bronto hosting, which is alway just the word "ANUS" copy-pasted two hundred and sixteen times. Or at least I hope it's copy-pasted.

We seem to have taken in a small, nervous dog yesterday afternoon. Mom thinks it's going to be a great companion to grandma, who is cooped up in her room all day, but considering we only got him with a crate and a tiny food bowl, and (to my knowledge) no toys or blankets or even a dang leash, and how suddenly he was dumped on us, I'm pretty worried about how we're gonna take care of the little fella. On the other hand, he's apparently trained as a show dog, he lives to be petted, and despite being a little bundle of nerves he only tried to bite one of us when he was cornered, so I'm cautiously optimistic about how this thing. Worst comes to worst, we could work out a way for him to live with his original owner somehow.
