Look at that little tail go.
“I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am.”
- Sylvia Plath
Congress is so strange. A man gets up to speak and says nothing. Nobody listens — and then everybody disagrees.
— Russian actor Boris Marshalov, after visiting the House of Representatives
Greetings from a snowy River of Boiling Water. They promised a nice bit of a winter storm and while it didn’t deliver in full force, the white stuff has started falling more rapidly. I’ve got a fire and a bit of boozy hot chocolate, so let’s get this thing rolling.
On the Internets:
Congress decides that maybe the NSA need’s to have its surveillance powers put in check, but only after they realize that eelected officials are citizens too. As North Korea continues to develop and test their nuclear capabilities, Seoul sends out the K-Pop to let the North know that things are better down below. The internet became fascinated by a puddle. The adult industry showed that it’s still the best marketing machine in the game. A guy assaulted his nephew for fucking with his Charazard.
There was a KMR holiday party and two wacky kids got engaged in a Wal-Mart and then stolee some sex toys. I also got notified that I might have to serve on a jury.
I’ve Been Reading:
I wrapped up Sandman Volume 3 this week, then finished up Volumes 4 and 5. I’m moving a long at a pretty good pace and really enjoying them.
In the Earhole:
|One Last Wish||12|
|The Nation of Ulysses||10|
All caught up on the Great British Bake-Off, and still slowly going through Jessica Jones. Everyone keeps telling me I need to see Making a Murderer, so that might show up next, just to prevent spoilers.
Boring, Boring Arsenal:
A heavily rotated Arsenal team beat Sunderland 3-1 in the FA Cup 3rd round. Arsenal were the favorites to win, and the Aaron Ramsey goal was just a joy to watch.
This is the back of Elijah Jefferson Bond’s gravestone. Bond patented the Ouija board in 1891. In 1907, Bond trademarked another oracle game called “Nirvana the Magic Swastika Talking Board,” which is now exceedingly rare. According to this website, which features photos of hundreds of planchettes from vintage oracle boards, there is only one Nirvana planchette known to exist.
