Gun-totin', Chronic-smokin' Hearse Initiator


So, only two weeks until I take the big ride to down to Texas. Christmas in San Antonio! I can hardly wait! Except for the part where it's super boring!

Anyway, since I am a sucker for road trips and an even bigger sucker for cheeseball tourist attractions, I'm combing through tomes like "Roadside America" and "Eccentric America" for any giant ball of twine/presidential busts made of cheese/America's largest Christian-themed motel type stuff I could do on the way down or the way back from San Antonio to Chicago. Anyone got any suggestions? 'Cause there will be pictures, and they will end up here...I'm particularly interested in anything absurdly, overblownedly (yes, I made that up! I'm like James Joyce! Only fatter and stupider!) religious, like "Oklahoma's Biggest Crucifix" or the real-world equivalent of "Praiseland".


Also, don't forget I need guest Ludic Log entries for the days I'm gone...if you're interested in doing a fill-in piece for my site, let me know and send it to me by the 18th. There's prizes!


In other news, I'm getting married to this bottle of Diet Mountain Dew Code Red. I think we will be very happy together.
