I nearly go run over by a horde of zombies this afternoon. Luckily they saw a Lexus and decided to attack it instead. I'd post pictures but my iPhone only takes bad, blurry shots.

I've got a bunch of comics in my collection which I don't want to hang on to anymore and should probably sell off. I've got about 24 short boxes in total, and maybe 8 to 12 of those that I want to sell. Some of the comics are close to 20 years old, must most are less than 10. Mostly superhero stuff, some graphic novels, some random crap (e.g. Interview with the Vampire).

Anyone got advice on how to move this stuff? (looks at dedagda)

It seems to be Lazy Bear weekend. If you're showing signs of incipient bearness, maybe this new product is for you!

Spotted a vanity plate on a fancy Mercedes parked on Market St: XL PINGA. Usually the DMV is better about catching salacious text on plates, but apparently someone was asleep at the wheel.

I didn't see the driver, but I'm guessing since it's on a $100K+ Mercedes that it's either a huge exaggeration, or some sugar daddy couldn't resist bragging about his uber-hung kept boy's piece.

castro neon
The Pink Saturday street party is over. The same straight, drunken boors who ruined the Halloween street party have now moved on to the other target, and the results did not make me happy. A few years ago the Pink Saturday party was my favorite event in the whole year. Last night was a crying shame. It was way too crowded. So much so that people were pushing and shoving and my friend I was with actually got shoved so hard he got smashed into me and nearly knocked me down. At one point I happened to be looking in just the right direction and saw a beer bottle come flying out of the air and into some poor woman's head, ricocheted into the head of the guy next to her, and took them both out. She nearly fell over in pain and shock, and he freaked out cause he got cut and his head was bleeding. I went over to make sure they were sober enough to get themselves some help and pointed them toward the first aid area. But really, what the fuck is up with that? What kind of a jerk throws a bottle into a crowd?

The house parties I went to were pretty fun, but the street thing was just awful. Unless they can do something about it, it's going to suffer the same fate as Halloween and end up a night where the cops chase everyone away.

Can't we have just one night?

Anyone I know doing the AIDS LifeCycle? Somehow I managed not to get hit up for a donation but I do want to sponsor someone.

tiny ernest
Last week's heat wave prompted me to concoct the best beat-the-heat supper known to mankind: gazpacho! This variation turned out so well I'm writing it down so I can do it again next time it gets hot.

2 medium cucumbers, peeled and seeded
2 large yellow bell peppers (or orange or red)
1 medium white onion
1 clove garlic
1 jalapeño chili pepper
1 small handful cilantro
approx 8 medium tomatoes
approx 6 cups tomato juice
juice of 2 medium limes

Do it all up in the food processor in medium size batches. Chop fine, but don't puree. Leave some of the tomatoes slightly chunky, and don't chop the onions too fine.

Pop in the fridge all day or even overnight. Serve with tortillas and maybe a dollop of sour cream. Makes enough to share.

I might just have to swap the jalapeño for a habanero next time.

Damn toasters must have hacked my tivo. No BSG for me! I'll have to grab it on the rebroadcast Sunday night. Sigh...
