Invasive Species

I was approached by the good people of The Encyclopedia Show to do the cover for their "Invasive Species" themed program. I was told to choose between creeping jenny and Chinese mitten crabs. But why choose? I made one from the other. And I thought it might make a nice desktop wallpaper, so if you click on the picture above it will take you to the 1280x960 wallpaper ready version.

Happy creeping.

Dylan Williams Benefit

There are still several hours left to bid on this page from Life with Mr. Dangerous, so please bid. This is to benefit Dylan Williams' (the founder of Sparkplug Books who tragically passed away on September 10th) family, to help with the medical and other expenses brought about by Dylan's illness.

Milk Shift

Via the great Joe Mochove (see Joe and his pal Rusty with me here):

"Milk Shift"

Out, driving on the streets at 1:30am, with no destination in mind. I was at home, restless, not ready for sleep, and I determined I really wanted some chocolate milk. Almost bought some earlier but didn’t.

I decided I wanted some enough to go out. This is the journal of my trip.

I’ve now decided I am going to Wawa. They will have whatever I can want.

Okay, chocolate milk acquired. Wawa was quiet and sparse with customers. Most people were waiting on ordered food. In and out. I sit in my car with my jug. It is 1:46am.

As I drive back home, I think of how silly it is to go out so late for something so unnecessary. Still, despite the time of night, I remain safe in my car, buffered from the world around me.

I drank my chocolate milk and, as expected, it was too much. Such is the danger of delicious chocolate milk.

It is 1:58am.

I am now in my house. I am where I am supposed to be at such an hour. I am only a little more tired. Regardless, my trip is over.

It is 2:13am. I think of yesterdays while preparing for tomorrow.
