Hey, I got scrapbook to work this time! One holiday snap coming at you!

If this does nothing for you, I'd start looking for the giant pod/ zygons/ tentacle of love.

The view from the balcony of my room
The view from the balcony of my room
Honestly, how can you feel bad with a view like this? It doesn't show the immensity of the vista, it doesn't show fractal mountains touching the blue horizon... and it still blows me away. I could have spent my entire holiday standing there and just taking this in.

  • That's a gorgeous view!!! Lucky you. Thanks for sharing the picture.
    • I've got the other half on the computer; it's just stunning. More stunning once you figure in the sound of the crickets and the guinea fowl chasing the cats. I am pretty lucky.
  • Yes, I must "do" Turkey, someday, as they say in the vernacular.

    This is significantly different from "doing a Turkey" which, although it sounds similar, involves a basting of the most disturbing kind.

    Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, Miss Rachel.

    • :-) So funny I can't laugh. (

      just to say, very nice, and avoid any complicated communication issues)
  • whoa! That's so gorgeous!
    • The whole place is like that, except where the huge signs on the roadside cast a shadow that tastes like america.
  • Wow, that's pretty.
  • Whole Mess O Nightcrawlers here for ya B


    Becups you have hurty-head I would have you smiling.

      We have to talk to you about this one once the head (bad, hurty, feels like a black eye crossed with everything else that hurts in here). I want to make so many smart comments about these and why I like the ones I do. And look through the rest, obviously (head doing what it does best/worse) -- Marc Hemple's one is very reminiscent of the Dave Cockrum initial. That I likes. And some of the more "realistic" skethces are uncanny ;-) (head in u r brane, eatin your spellins... not kidding). It was so turning out to be a nice day. I've only looked at a couple/triple/n-th, starting from the bottom because that's what I do.

      (this is getting kind of good for a migraine comment) Buzzy, couch, now! *waves*

      ETA: This is one of the best, period, and is just stunning and he _is_ a trapeeze artist.

        This one is from our pal Chip Zdarsky, this one is from our pal Ramon Perez, and this one is from our pal Kalman Andrasofszky (all of whom have signed at my store within the past two years). All of them fine Canadian boys - the latter two have shared martinis and beers with me. The former has shared coffee with me. We Canadian boys like drinking stuff, sometimes in each other's company (you may slash of that what you will, my dear).

        This one is by Kate Willaert, who posts quite often on my blog as digital_eraser. She is a hardcore X-geek like the two of us.

        This one is from Coleen Coover who is the artist in those delightful X-Men First Class comics (the ones with the duckies and the Jean/Natasha stories we love). I haven't shared a beer with her or her husband Paul, but I would sure like to.

        • I met a man who wasn't there.

          [not here really, too tired and hungover from tues]

          She got Bret Blevins! Squee! I loved his run on New Mutants and always wondered where he went (beyond contributing to a how to superhero art book) as he was fantastic and drew actual teenagers and *squeeeeee*
