Even Pikachu has a Side Gig
You know the economy is bad when even Pikachu has to have a second job – as a floor cleaner at Walmart no less.
Hope he’s getting good benefits.
Have a pikachu kinda day!
Strawberry ice cream
Or should I say strawberry ice cream with hot fudge? Anyway, it’s an easy one. I don’t use the ninja strawberry recipe, instead I use the vanilla ice cream and cur part of the milk and cream and replace it with strawberries and then add some food coloring.
Anything else worth mentioning? Saw this guy in Creston last night.
Not a great pic but we were zooming past.
Have a strawberry ice cream kinda day!
Thankfulness #18:TV Time
Despite all the things I need to to do, today I am thankful for taking some time and finishing the last three episodes of LAST season’s Supernatural. We also broke in our Pennsylvania potato chips:
They were pretty good. I still have three bottle of Vernor’s left from michigan that I have been saving, but we may break into soon. I love getting weird food from other states!
I didn’t get any writing done today, but I did get the weekly Terrible Turtles page done – and we got some pokemoning in:
That was tonight’s ax murder house shot. There were people staying in it, and either they were taking lots of pictures, or there was a lightning storm going on inside, as we could see the flashes through the windows.
We did find something odd in a tree on the boulevard, though:
Our first thought was voodoo hex bag (the brother thought there might be a chicken tongue in the middle!) but Facebook says it is a “nest material offering” for birds. Either is possible, so just in case we didn’t hang around. We have enough trouble.
And now I am going to bed, but I leave you with the poster stuck in the armory window:
Have a no-hex-bag kinda day!
Murder! Torture! Terror!
It rained, so no painting, but this was worth sharing:
Have a not-getting-murdered kind of day!
The Coffin Shaped Box
A coffin shaped box arrived at our door.
I brought it inside, set it on the floor.
The cat howled and circled, all in a tizzy,
Round, round she went, ’til her brain was quite dizzy.
What was in that box, she wanted to know.
Perhaps toys, or catnip, or imported snow.
Why was it so big, why such an odd shape?
Did it hold a costume, complete with a cape?
Was it a new bed, a place for her to sleep?
She meowed and she called, and begged for a peek.
So we cut loose the tape and lifted the lid,
Inside was a case – oh what treasures it hid!
And when it unzipped, inside a surprise,
A new violin that brought light to our eyes.
For though we can’t play, that doesn’t mean,
We can’t bother the neighbors with screeches and screams.
And maybe someday, a real song we’ll wail,
If for disturbing the peace, we haven’t been jailed.
Full disclosure: I am not the one hoping to learn to play. That would be my brother who has always wanted a violin. Unfortunately, in his youth, some kind soul told him that in order to master it he had to start as a child, and since he hadn’t there was no point. Being the person my brother is, he listened to them, and it’s taken me all these years to convince him to give it a go anyway. We got this set on eBay (it’s a learner’s violin set) and he is going to learn or I’m going to tie him to a chair and make him. Sadly I can’t read music (I’ve tried. And tried. There was a reason I went for percussion back in school) but I teased him that if he learned to play we could get our piano tuned and stick numbers on all the keys then he could write out the music for me using numbers for the notes (like little kid keyboards do) and we’d duet. Ha ha!
And now I head to bed. Have a good one!

Now that the Terrible Turtle Conspiracy has it’s own website, I’ll no longer post the whole comic here in one long blog. Instead, each week I will post a link to the newest page, like I’ve been doing on Myspace.
What is the TTTC? It’s a webcomic written by Jonathan Harvey and illustrated by me. we add a page every week, so be on the lookout. Why not visit http://TerribleTurtles.com and subscribe?

Desperately Seeking Clipit
(originally from June 2007)
Well, I’ve gotten the new word 2007, in fact I am using it to type this. I have to say I like it (despite the fact that some people think I am adverse to change *cough * 😉 ) The tabs are handy – and I imagine are especially handy on a laptop with the stupid touch pad mouses (mice?). But I have noticed something horrific about it – something no one else will probably care about:
CLIPPIT IS NOT THERE!!
That’s right, there is NO office assistant. *pauses while people cheer *. Now that it’s out of your system maybe you won’t mind if I continue to look sad. I LIKE Clippit! I like The Dot! I like the Robot and the cat and even the dog! During moments of writers block I would click on my happy office assistant Clippit and make him do things, and when I close word his cheerful little wave goodbye always makes me feel .. well, cheerful. But no more! Poor Clippit is nowhere to be found! In fact there is a whole segment on it in the help files:
I am outraged! I want my damned paperclip back! I want to click on him and make him do things at my whim! When I do I search I want to see him roll up his piece of paper and peer through it like a spy glass! Sure, the new help systems might be better, but they are NOT CUTE!!! I LIKE cute!! I DEMAND cute!!!! I want to see a sleepy paper clip when I’ve been particularly inspired and pause to stretch my neck! I want Clippit back dammit!
And so, as one might expect, I have made something……
Now what am I going to do with it? Frankly I have no idea, except I am posting it all over to make people aware that Clippit is missing!! And I think everyone else should too! *cough* hint *cough* join me in the fight to bring back our friend Clippit!
And now for the segment I like to call “Random Things from My Hard Drives”, please enjoy some…
