A New Old Story

According to the notification I just got from WordPress, yesterday was the fifth anniversary of my blog. Please, hold your applause. No…. wait a minute. On second thought, don’t hold your applause. Make it loud. I’ll wait….

I can’t hear you….

You’re not applauding, are you? Sigh….

Anyways, in honor of this, I thought I’d tell a story from within that period of time. I’m pretty sure I’ve never told this one before. I suppose I could look it up, but that seems like more time than I want to spend on it. Besides, it’s not going to hurt you to read it again if I’ve already told it.

Memorial Service Update

Revis Edgewater:

I wish I could be there. It is also the only time I support wearing blue.

Originally posted on The Matticus Kingdom:

Rara will be there!

She’ll be shackle and handcuff free, but will still be in her prison blues.

So, if you are coming, to show support for her, wear blue.  Blue scrubs.  Blue shirts.  Blue ties.  Blue anything.  Just wear blue.

She should be showing up around 9:30…

I’ll probably be there around then too.

Sad News

Revis Edgewater:

I talked to Grayson through email a number of times. He helped me out with my writing. I didn’t “know him” know him, but because of him, I’m a better writer. He will certainly be missed.

I have terrible news to share with the blogosphere today.

Horrible, no good, awful news.

Many of you knew him as Grayson Queen, author and artist extraordinaire.  Perhaps you’ve read one of his novels.  Perhaps you’ve purchased, or at least enjoyed, some of his paintings or sculptures…  Perhaps you knew that he was also Rara‘s husband, Dave.

I don’t have a lot of details, but I can confirm that Dave passed away earlier this week.

Please share this post wide and far.  Please say a prayer for Dave and Rara.  Please send her every ounce of spare energy you can muster.  She needs us.  Dave’s family and friends need us.

And send her mail to show her your love, your RawrLove:

Radhika Jaini WF0124
CIW LA 249 UP
16756 Chino-Corona Road
Corona, CA  92880

You don’t need to know what to say.  You don’t need to say anything…

Ultimate Comic Book Team

The guys I used to work with aren’t really around anymore. Both of them still work here, but they’re in jobs that don’t really let us BS as much as we used to. Every once in awhile,  we’ll be able to come up with a nonsensical question that would lead to hours of pointless debate. However, it’s not an every day thing anymore.
The most recent attempt came last week when talking about the Avengers. That led to a discussion about the team members, which turned into a discussion about why certain members shouldn’t be on the team. Predictably,  it then became an argument about who should be on the team. It finally settled on ” What is your ultimate comic book team”?

Hey Lady

I know that men are pigs. We are constantly thinking about sex. It’s also in our nature to check women out. However,  that is not what we’re doing every single time a female is in our eyes.
For example,  let’s say a woman was walking down the aisle in a warehouse. A man stops and looks at her. She walks off in a huff acting like he was trying to picture her naked. Madame,  I assure you, he was not trying to picture you naked. He only does that to attractive women. I’ll tell you what he was doing.

The New Story Idea

Last week, I asked you all for help in coming up with a comic book character that I could revitalize.  I wanted someone who wasn’t a badass so I could turn them into a badass.  I also talked about it with some of the comic book geeks at work. The idea I have is one I really like and I want to make it work.
So, I agonized over who to pick. The guys at work threw out a bunch of suggestions. I thought about it quite a bit. In the end, I could never think of any Marvel or D.C. character that seemed right for the story I had in mind.
The question remained: who would I use?
