  1. My fave is a toilet that is actually in a wall.
    The workers did a really astoundingly good job on putting a toilet in a wall.
    My thought eventually was? How much of an ass is their boss who I bet told them to do what the blue prints said.
    And the drywall people said ‘But!’ and the boss said….

  2. Ray Anselmo – I am a 41-year-old curmudgeon-in-training. My life is largely a happy one, with a God who loves me (no accounting for taste!), a drop-dead-gorgeous wife and two brilliant kids, a decent income and plenty of time to read, write, pray and reflect. But so often I think things could be better, and I have a tendency to declaim on such matters at length. You've been warned. ;-D

    This is a better story than anything Jimmy Roberts will come up with in the next two weeks.

  3. John Callaghan – Edmonton Alberta Canada – Welcome to my blog. I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I've lived in and traveled to most areas of this massive, beautiful country but have settled here in Edmonton for the past couple of decades. I have a degree in Comparative Literature from the University of Alberta and I still live near the campus. I think reading and studying literature have, to a certain extent, given my existence meaning and context. I have recently discovered the joys of genre fiction and will discuss that, as well as a wide range of topics from mixed martial arts, to movies, to cable television, to current events, and whatever else catches my fancy (whoa, that's a weird expression). I will also feature some of my creative non-fiction and fiction writing. If you are here and reading this, I thank you for stopping by. Enjoy (I hope).

    Yikes.

  4. Mhairi – Adelaide, Australia – I'm an avid reader and aspiring novelist living in Adelaide, Australia. At the moment I'm focusing my blogging efforts on two websites: Mhairi Reads: Basically I love books a lot and on this blog I talk about what I'm reading, what I'm writing and especially what's making me flail at the moment. ZOMG!Blog: This one is a joint effort with my housemate and partner in crime. We update weekly with posts related to the zombie, disaster and dystopia genres. We look at a range of media including books, movies, TV and games!

    This is the Winter Olympics of my heart! <3

  5. Dan (i.e., Tom) is one of the good guys. Was glad to have met him ~21 years ago when I was on staff of an alt-weekly that ran his strip.

  6. Oh goodness, that was wonderful! Save this for the coffee table edition of Best Of The Twitter Archives.

  7. “The polar bear eventually told US weekly”.

    Although admittedly, the other tabloids reported on the cause of Putin’s pinkeye first. :-)

  8. You chickened out, John. You missed the chance to take it to the next level, then see if Tom would. Competitive improvisational slash is the best. Takes the phrase ‘one-up-manship’ to the next level.

  9. So, this was your secret project requiring seclusion? But: I call shenanigans! There was no guitar!

    (you can make this right by turning the above True Story into a ballad).

  10. allisonmonkey – After 10 years together, my spouse and I are expecting a wee one. With a couple of nerdy language and science geeks for parents, the Tickle's got no chance at being normal. Sorry, kid.

    That was beautiful. I can’t wait for the movie.

  11. Am I the only one who found it extremely disorienting when Dan/Tom abruptly switched from present to past tense? And only three tweets from the end! Whole suspension of disbelief thing, bam, right out the window. Gave me vertigo and everything. :(

  12. At night, the stray dogs come.

    Where is this line from? Did I read this in some post apocalyptic 90s short story? Google is not helping me here.

  13. ” ‘At night, the stray dogs come.’ Where is this line from?”

    It might be a riff on Matt Groening from Life is Hell.

    “Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come.”

    Then again it might not be at all related.

    I got this yesterday, after reading about it here. Now I’m halfway through and loving it. Though I’ve got to say “it’s mighty geeky.” In a good way.

    Nice – wordpress required login, jumped me back here instead of the thread I thought I was posting it. Cool “feature”, that!
