Along Came a...

Today, as you might know, is an extra-awesome day. It only happens to be Dan Gilvezan's birthday. In honor of this glorious occasion, I shall be playing my copy of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. And giggling like a dork.

Enjoy the day, Dan and much love. It's all about you!

What a Contrast...

So evidently, getting my fix can and does include watching the postseason, no matter who's playing--just watched the Phillies/Giants NLCS game 6. Giants won. I don't think I've heard a quieter stadium. I mean, damn, you could hear a frigging pin drop. Not like the Rangers/Yankees game. When the Rangers won ALCS game 6, the entire stadium erupted into thunderous cheering. The Rangers were at home, so it's no mystery why the difference exists, but still...

Now the Phils fans are booing. Go home and cry, ya chumps. I'm sick of ya. I still ain't forgivin' yer asses for 2008, ya bastards.

The C Word

Yesterday after I got off the clock, I wandered around my store a bit. Walked through the Lawn and Garden area and groaned. In the back left hand corner what did I see?

Christmas lights and wrapping paper. It begins again.

Yeah, really looking forward to all this crap. Can we just fast forward to next June so I'll be in Cali for BotCon? I'd much prefer that, thank you very much. (It is my "Christmas", after all.)

Random Thoughts, Yet Again

Because I haven't done this in a long while and I'm pretty freaking bored, it's time for:

Weasel's Random Thoughts!

* Bitch Convoy is officially gone. She got the boot back in mid-August. Seems she decided to cash someone's payroll check and handed them the money... along with the freaking check. So, basically the check could be recashed with no one the wiser. That's a massive fuck-up on her part and needless to say, management told her to step the hell down. She is supposedly working in Wireless, but I have yet to see her and I ain't complaining. (This is the same female who lectured me on frigging ethics. I can't tell if this is funny or sad.)

* I watched a Green Bay Packers game a couple of weeks ago. I can honestly say that I find baseball a lot more exciting.

* A few days ago, I had to go on a toy run for Prime; we'd gotten word that the local ToysRUs had restocked a couple exclusives and we needed several for a couple other WAY-non-local collectors. Waiting until Prime got off work wasn't really a palatable option. As a thank you, he got me a big box of Brewers baseball cards and a box of unopened vintage packs. I can say I've tried to chew 21-year-old Topps gum (it just dissolved in my mouth) and lived to tell the tale.

* Good news for yours truly: The Brewers won't raise ticket prices next year. Now all I need is to hear me some Hell's Bells in the ninth inning and life will be awesome.

* Wasn't able to make Slag-A-Con this year. Really wanted to meet David Sobolov, but things just didn't work out. Maybe next year.

* Spent most of Sunday watching the Hub, Hasbro and Discovery's new channel. I think I enjoyed My Little Pony a little more than I should have. (Hey Hasbro, we need a figure of Nightmare Moon. There is nothing more epic than a black winged unicorn.) The really good stuff comes on at 11 PM Central Monday through Thursday. G1, baby! (A nightly visit with Bumblebee after a crappy day will do my sorry tail some good, I tell ya.)

And that covers just about everything. Tune in next time when I ramble on about more pointless BS. Until then, this is

--Weasel, "Signing off."

SON OF A---!!

I'll bet that Barricade is laughing his skidplate off about this one.

Ouch. Seriously, OUCH!

Yeah, poor 'Bee looks like hell. But both drivers were okay. Something tells me my sweet little Autobot would actually be a bit proud of that.

You know, I've seen listings for wrecked cars in one of our local Auto Traders. Mr. Bay, if you don't want to repair that Camaro, I'll take him and nurse him back to health. (Hint, hint...)
