As a semi-human who sits in front of a computer for the better part of my time awake each day (and another good part while I’m asleep), I peruse a lot of blogs. I used to try and limit the number of sites I’d hit in a given day because I just don’t have that good of an organization system. …

Grrr, cold.

I was reminded of something a short while ago when I went to fill my car up with gas: I freakin’ hate the cold! Sure, I’ve never lived anywhere where it was lovely and semi-tropical all the time, but I have a great appreciation for such climes. Today, as the “arctic chill” (not a new flavor of Gatorade) descends upon …

2010? Seriously?

justin monkey, Ravings Leave a Comment

I’ve barely gotten used to writing 200X on the few things I actually have to date and now I’ve got one less zero to worry about (well, come 2011 I will). This, of course, makes me wax nostalgic about the last ten years and all the things that happened in them. With almost the same fervor that I wanted 2001 …

I’m a candy junkie. Oddly enough, however, my habit did not form until I was well into my 20’s. I’m almost convinced that it’s related to my body’s craving for alcohol, but I can’t prove anything. Anyway, I loves me some candy, and, therefore, I can motor through a crapload of the stuff if given the opportunity. On several occasions …

As you have either known for a long time, or have just figured out from reading my little diatribes, I’m an odd fellow. Strike that, I’m almost downright weird. I find great comfort in individuality and always have. Being weird isn’t a new thing for me; I’ve been weird just about all of my life. Just ask my Mother, she’d …

The Legend of Pao’ !Mo-Loki Keeble Drax

Note: I wrote this back in April 2006 and stumbled across it this morning and thought I’d share it here. I believe it was an exercise in attempting to prove that if you are willing to make up some pretty obnoxious names, anyone can be a fantasy writer. In the steppes outside the great hidden city lies a great temple. …

Vulgarity vs. the State of Texas

justin monkey, Ravings, Stupidity, Texas Leave a Comment

I’m vulgar.  Well, that’s moderately common knowledge, but, according to the State of Texas, I’m officially vulgar. This all started a few weeks ago. A company by the name of MyPlates.com was given a renewal by Texas to handle vanity license plates with a whole bevy of new designs that look about a bajillion times better than the piece of crap …
