In other news, who's watching the VP debate tonight? I got five on (grab your 40, let's get keyed) Cheney tearing pretty boy Edwards' face off with one swipe of his mighty claws. Here are five people/things I have heard Cheney compared to recently, all of which strike me as entirely appropriate:
1. Ernst Stavro Blofeld
2. a dragon
3. Old Man Potter
4. Ebenezer Scrooge
5. Boss Smiley, only without the smiling thing
Also, I finally took the big nerd-plunge and went on an eBay spree yesterday after getting a couple of fat freelance checks. I thought about saving some of the money to keep me out of that gutter, but fuck that, what are the odds I'll live long enough not to be able to retire comfortably? I bought a Settlers of Catan/Cities & Knights of Catan combo pack, a big-ass game board for Settlers of Catan (here I come for your ass, rum_holiday!), and some swell-looking late-'40s vintage Southern Comfort playing cards, and I have bids out on a near-complete set of the Baron/Dude run of Nexus and a UFO Or Die CD. Take that, my future, I'm buying toys!
So none of you are coming to 215, eh? Cowards! Bastards! COWARDS!
