I have to admit that I have been damn lazy too with these blogs. Bah unto myself. I guess I have some reasons, but no excuses. Alas it just comes down to the fact that my few precious hours when I am not at class or at work are spent with video games, reading, or beer drinking. With so many important things to do, my blogs are usually the first to suffer. I apologize.
Going back to work yesterday was a bitch after having five days off in a row. Not that I can complain to much about my job at the old B & N, but I will. The best thing about yesterday was that the new Tom Robbins book, Villa Incognito
, came out. Yay! As with most of his books, Mr. Robbins grabs you with the first sentence and doesn't let you go. "It has been reported that Tanuki fell from the sky using his scrotum as a parachute." Now, if that doesn't get you to want to keep reading, then there is something terribly wrong with you. Or maybe, there is something wrong with you if you do want to keep reading. Of course, if there wasn't something wrong with you, then you probably wouldn't be visiting this site. Video game nerds like myself may remember the Tanuki suit from Super Mario Bros. 3 that turned Mario into a flying racoon-like creature and gave him the power to turn into a statue. So, the whole time I'm reading this book, I can't help but think of some Italian plumber's nut sack. Someone please help me. The only thing scarier than Mario's balls is the Snuggle Bear. Damn you fabric softener. Damn you to hell, you fiendish bear. If you have any nightmares about either the Snuggle Bear or Mario, please sent complaints to email@example.com. Have a nice day.
