    A drunk, sex-crazed Cthulu… Interesting.

    One thing I’ve taken away from this experience is that the people that frequent the library at 1 a.m. two weeks after finals are over tend to be very strange. I wonder what that says about me. 😉

    You’re writing about a mutant alligator whos probably more patriotic than half of the U.S. and his tax-savvy partner. Not that weird.

    Some of the stories I could tell about tax-related hijinks are just as crazy as fiction. For example, I got the idea for Agent Orange trying to pay his taxes in pennies from real life.

    Stranger things have happened hahaha.

    Speaking of which, somebody just died while in line for World Cup tickets. If he had just read The Taxman Must Die, he would have known that death, despair and soccer go hand in hand. 😉

    The crocodile was missing.

    That only means he got away!

    Fun fact: Crocodylus is derived from the Greek “krokodeilos” which means “pebble worm.” Yes, South Africa has many man-eating pebble worms.

    He got away, probably with the eleven tickets. Agent Orange goes to Africa to battle the crocodile imposter in the soccer world finals hehehe.

    In Britain, soccer masquerades as an interesting sport. That’s why everybody calls it “football” there. 😉

    Back on topic though; they were probably talking about this:

    I’m not responsible for any psychological ill-effects…

    Oh my God, that review was written by Yahtzee! I love that guy! 😀 He does these videogame reviews on the Escapist, called Zero Punctuation, where he talksreallyfastandmakesallsortsofrudejokes. As a gamer, I love what he does. I also like the Angry Video Game Nerd on (he swears a LOT).

    That Guy With the Glasses is great too, he covers movies along with the others on the same site ( .

    And I’ll tell you a conversation that I don’t wanna be a part of.


    Speaking of Twilight, I’m attending a pop culture convention soon, and I predict I will be knee deep in blood by the end of the day, from being bashed by diehard Twihards, bashing said Twihards, or a Team Edward vs. Team Jacob brawl. (shudder)

    I don’t want to be a part of any conversation precipitated by any commentary on ESPN or TMZ. ESPN has to fill so many hours with so much junk that its talking heads will pick on the most ridiculous minor-outrages to gin up controversy. I think ESPN is okay when it comes to breaking sports news that is actually newsworthy*, though. For example, Landis Floyd’s accusation that Lance Armstrong was doping.

    *To the extent that sporting news can be newsworthy. Even in the Super Bowl or World Cup or Tour of France, the only thing at stake is who gets to brag until next year or four years or whenever. Nevertheless… Wars have been fought over less than bragging rights. See The War of Jenkins’ Ear, for example. 😉

    Ack. His name is Floyd Landis. I’m going dyslexic.
