Midday post of miscellany

Just some random what nots:

  • The last day I missed a post was Monday, October 5, 2009. That means it is now 113 days of consecutive blogging and counting! Eat that, NaBloPoMo.
  • The blog is now eight comments away from the “1,000 comments” achievement. Who will be the one to pop my 1k cherry?
  • Last night Mrs. Abyss laughed her ass off. Longer and harder than any time I can think of in recent memory. (Too bad for her she has a cold and a little rattle in her chest and all that laughter choked her good!) She came home from work and found that I had purchased haircut clippers and had buzzed my head good. I figured it would be a good cost-cutting move since haircuts cost me $22 each and the clippers were a one-time investment of only $10.50.
  • In my latest move of craziness I decided to forgo the gasoline-powered internal combustion engine this morning and I walked my ass to work. (It’s only two miles.) There is something exhilarating about getting from point A to point B under your own head of steam. The trick now is to see how long I can keep this up and what effect it might have on me. Thanks to the WordPress “schedule post” feature I’ll still be able to blog while I’m hoofin’ it across town later this afternoon.
  • There have been four cans of energy drinks in our fridge during the last 24 hours. The gerbil herd may be getting ready to stampede. Our scientists are carefully observing – from a safe distance.

Have a great day, all!

Introducing Hyppo and Critter!

I wanted to try my hand at being a comic strip guy so here I go. Please do not mistake the audaciousness of this attempt as a belief that I have any actual talent or artistic skill. I don’t. I know better that that.

Hopefully my new-found pals Hyppo and Critter will be able to stop by from time to time. For the purpose of torture, no doubt.
