Well I didn't get the opportunity to visit with my grandfather this past week. I literally drove right by his house but was on a schedule and couldn't stop. With as much as I keep getting back to the Virginia area though, I'm thinking I'll have more opportunities. I hope so.
I'm actually heading back there this week, which sucks because I had hoped to take queenkatieett westward for our trip together. Perhaps we wil be able to do it next week.
While in Virginia Beach with welfy this week, we went to a neat store called Cool and Eclectic, which had all sorts of fun and weird things for sale. While we were there, I met her sister.
As you can see, the resemblance is striking. Apparently, the thing for short, bald(ing) guys who travel a lot runs in the family, too.
I'm typically anti-topical in my journal, but what the hell.
1) Fuck you, Nike. This is just disgusting. I hope Ian McKaye sues the ever-living fuck outta them. On the upside, fun with photoshopping album cover art.
2) Not that I advocate any of the atrocities performed by the BTK Strangler of Wichita, but I do admire his panache. I mean, if you're going to be a serial killer, at least have some style like this dude. In his allocution to the crimes, he told one story in which he broke into the apartment of a 25 year old woman in the 1970's. When she came home, he confronted her with a weapon and explained that he was psychologically impaired and sexually dysfunctional and that he was sorry, but, he was going to have to rape her. They spent 30 minutes talking, smoking cigarettes and drinking wine. The conversation ended with her saying, "Well, let's get this over with so I can call the police." Then he strangled her to death, without raping her.
3) I came a little when I saw this. Record ecstasy. Someone loan me 10 grand. I'm good for it.
