goblin sneak

(no subject)

infernal device by erik ruhling.

i like illustrated histories. as a rule. i also dislike disinfo's stuff. as a rule. disinfo is sort of the perfect example of "lies, damn lies, & statistics," & all those other sorts of "hey, when we take this out of context, it sure is fishy!" i have liked some of their big books, but there you go. okay; the good: this is an illustrated history of torture implements. the bad: the illustrations are...cgi? okay, that pretty much sucks. what the hell is that, you couldn't go to a museum & take pictures? also, the use of the objects isn't clear; often it is scattered somewhere in the attached text. maggie & christopher read this over my shoulder on the train yesterday & it was pretty fun? & an illustrated history of torture is always useful to a gentleman of my persuasions. but there are some major drawbacks to it to be mindful of.

jump on it!

okay, well-- quick note on this morning so far. woke up early to go to the gym & kicked my ass without even really meaning to. hey, part of the plan with this morning business is that you'll count mornings as bonus rounds! no, no, instead i'll just fucking slam myself around in the newly remodelled weight room. okay! except now my one shoulder hurts. ouch. also, got another wedding present, this time from meryl...another bamboo cutting board? how many of these do we need? this is a real question of mine, since it turns out you might want more than one (1) pot, one (1) pan, etc. for me the real prize is that it came in one of those blue amazon gift sacks; those are important to my laundry routine!

yesterday i collared christopher & we bounced out of work early to go to witch prison practice rehersal. it was pretty spotty! i am now very fondly remembering all of the jungle woman tuesdays, where i could not show up for sundays because all the people i was in scenes with were able to make it to the tuesdays. these tuesdays, not so much! the solid players are there, but being the middle of the week, it is tricker for some to make it to. no daile! no dan! simon had me & fayefaery do a snippet of a scene together, just three or four (3-4)lines, to make me feel like i wasn't wasted, but i didn't mind. it was fun enough seeing christopher reherse to play one of the cops. afterwards, we wandered around williamsburg jumping on the various things we found & messing with the graphitti. it occured to me that living in williamsburg basically amounts to being a freshman at college. it sure is filthy like a college dorm! anyhow, after than i trundled home, found myself a fussy girlfriend fiancee, & fed her full of pork & strange peruvian sauces. i am an alchemist! drink this, quick!
