Random Scotto factoid – When My brother and I got toys from a similar set (Star wars, Battlestar Galactica, army men, etc) I *always* picked the bad guys / freaky looking ones. I think the only good-guy star wars figures I had were Chewbacca, Yoda and some droids. R2-D2, R5-D4, a Protocol droid (or C-3PO sprayed chrome rather than gold.)
Bad guys simply have cooler sculpts/shapes/uniforms/evil robo voices or growls.
A year ago, I started the coloring book community –
Hmm. My picture hosting area at Bellsouth is down. That’s a kick in the head… I hope it wakes up soon.
Went to Blimpie’s for lunch… The Veggie Max sub is tasty! Of course, getting a side of chips negated most of the healthy side of that meal. The Jalapeno chips didn’t have much of a bite to ’em… like someone ran the bags near a Jalapeno patch, just to capture a hint of the scent to toss on there… I think I should’ve gone with half sammich and half broccoli-cheese soup, no chips. (I am comfortably full of sammich, though.)
A gray day…a little warmer than yesterday.
Action figure cam – I just saw Greedo holding up another patron! (With Mr. T in the background.)
It was a tough night sleeping. I got about 5 hours in three or four fractured periods of rest over from about 2 am to 10:30 am.
Heaven knows what’s going on next door, but the bro and his roommate have a guest over they’re talking pretty loudly, but it doesn’t seem to be argumentative. I went out to say hey, and asked about the interview. He says that his interview went well yesterday and that she’ll call back. I hope that it’s so… The only thing that strikes me as odd is that he hadn’t shaved since I saw him last night (He had about three-days growth on his chin… not the best way to interview). I asked him last night if he needed a razor, and he said it was covered.
Today’s Sunday, and December already… It would seem Papa Time has wings on his feet.
I hope that this month is much more pleasant than the last two for those I care for (that includes myself).
