Names

EXOTIC FOREIGNER ALIAS = Favourite Spice + Last Foreign Vacation Spot --- I never vacation, and haven't left the country, so I guess I'm just "Garlic"

SOCIALITE ALIAS = Silliest Childhood Nickname + Town Where You First Partied --- Reader Nashville...hmmm, ok

ROCK STAR ALIAS = Any Liquid on the Bar + Last Name of Bad-Ass Celeb --- Spiced Rum Zombie...I can't decide if this is rock or blues or horror...maybe all three? I like that idea

SOAP OPERA ALIAS = Middle Name + Street Where You First Lived --- Howard Avalon...sounds rich, I can handle that

Damn

Sad to report, Helmut Newton died in a car accident. Known for his amazing photography, Newton's work has appeared world-wide. Apparently, he lost control of his vehicle as he was leaving a hotel in LA, it accelerated into a wall, and he died shortly after arriving at the hospital.

The photographic community suffered a great loss today.

Hmmm...Sounds Awfully Familiar

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who
determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a
democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no
voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you
have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of
patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

*YAWNSTRETCH*

Hello, and welcome to morning in the House of Chaos, where you, too, may get to hear such odd phrases as "giant ectoplasmic breasts" used with complete sincerity.
Burn The World

Destruction

You know, as an American MaleTM, there's nothing quite as satisfying as taking a well-made piece of permanent fixture, grabbing a claw hammer, and demolishing it with sheer force of muscle.

The heavy cracking and snapping of struts, the sharp smell of fresh wood wounds, the aroma of sawdust, the feel of rough wood edges and hot metal screws fresh from the woody abattoir of your wrath...these are a few of my favourite things.

In other news, we got a small set of upright drawers for Di's clothes, and we no longer have the huge, heavy wood dresser that takes up so much damn space...heh, heh. The dumpster here at the apartment complex says "no furniture", but I see it in there all the time, anyway...so I think Di and are are going to make a lightning-fast, ninja-like raid on the dumpster tonight to rid ourselves of the bodies...I mean pieces of the dresser.

In fact, I think we'll actually dress as ninjas when we do it.

Dumping The Dresser - The Ninja Way

So, I mentioned earlier that I demolished the old dresser we had, and that, due to the apartments asking people not to dispose of furniture in the dumpster, the only way for us to do it was to wait until late and hit the dumpster in a lightning-fast, ninja-like way. We decided, what the Hell, if we were gonna hit it ninja-style, let's go all the way and hit it NINJA-STYLE.

Wanna See Pix?

Sorry for some of the pix being blurry. Ninja-In-Training Dipu Zombie-chan hasn't learned the ancient Ninja art of Chillishrugoff, or "Not Shivering In The Cold Rain".
