Why Kiley, have you resorted to bullying Perpetua and procrastinating on your novel? But it's only Day 2!

Yeah, but in my defense: CHECK OUT MY AWESOME ASTRO BOY TOYS! )

No bunnies/rabbits were harmed in the making of this post. Darn!

Don't go out there, the old woman said. She pointed at the stretch of land surrounded by gnarled trees and permanently cast in shadow. You don't want what's waiting there.

I shook off her grip. Woman, I'll go where I bloody well want--



--wait, what was that? I turned around, saw naught but heard the retreating footsteps. The old woman's warning rang in my ears.

What was out there? )

Thanks for the kind thoughts everyone! To prove I don't brood about my problems all the time, here's something you might enjoy. Blog@Newsarama noted that comic shop Comicopia had a float in Boston's Pride Parade. I didn't see if an LCS did the same for WeHo Pride, but we did have a float with DC and Marvel characters:



Wonder Woman: check. American flag: check. Robin, specifically Tim!Robin: CHECK! Too bad the Catwoman costume was awful; it looked like a gimp mask with glued-on cat ears.

To do the picture justice, you gotta have Poker Face playing full-force. Once you have that winning combination you may have the same reaction I had as I watched the Silver Surfer, Wolverine, and Spidey gyrate precariously to Lady Gaga on the edges of the float: feeling so very damn proud to be living in the United States.

Anyway, enough with that malarkey. Guess what else I found randomly in my Windows Photo Gallery? Why it's me, age 17 16! Aargh, look at that baby fat. And beside me is Heidi MacDonald, whom I worshiped forever. If that name is familiar, it's because she's the writer for the comics blog The Beat. Here's a mystery for DC fans: who is that to the left of us ... is it Jann Jones?

Didn't that dick Berlusconi once say to his pal Medvedev that Obama was tanned? UGH.

Flipper's pink! Actually, it's a rare albino dolphin (via The Guardian's The Week In Wildlife). Check out the rest of the gallery, there are tree kangaroos, monarch butterflies, and an adorable shot of a baby meerkat peeking at the camera.

Damnit, why's it so difficult to upload to LJ's Scrapbook? Because it just is, that's why.

As mentioned before, here's the first batch of the photos I took on the Valentine's Day trip to San Marino's Huntington Library:

Large pics; not dialup safe! )

PS Most of the images are on Flickr, too.

I'm absolutely knackered with blisters and haven't eaten anything other than mini-wheat bagels all day. Would you believe I nearly missed the beginning of today's Full Rights For Immigrants rally? The weather was boiling, and I was happily eating an ice cream when the Rite Aid worker pointed out the time. A jaunt to a couple of blocks over at Olympic and Broadway (aka my favourite Downtown place for a falafel) later, I found the mass of marchers and quickly took photos.


The pictures from the May Day rally are here at Flickr.

BTW, some bad news: I didn't get that job after all :(
