It's Vegas, baby.

It does look better on its original owner (awesome retired paramedic, with military bearing and a wax-tipped mustache) but it looks cool on me too.

Ok ewwwww

I've discovered this horrible spider in my cupboard and am working up the nerve to go back in and kill it. It is the size of a dime, or a pizza...I think it's the size of a pizza. If there aren't anymore posts, it's because I've been bitten and succumbed to the neurotoxins. It's the horrible big juicy butt on the thing that bothers me.

They're growing up. I remember being solemnly told one Halloween that "a vampire was someone who drank out of the toilet."

Little tricycle dude
