Art Funnies, Sore Muscles, Miscellany, Visits, Southern Rock

Dig it, apparently someone took a brochure about helping choking victims and did a little Photoshopping. It made me giggle, anyway.

Man, got some seriously sore muscles form yesterday. dravengodvamp and I spent the first half of the day planting one tree and destroying two others, so lots of ground-breaking, digging, chainsawing, and hauling timber. Thus, I declare today to be a "Frank-gets-to-do-nothing-all-day" day. I have a feeling it'll be movies and Dungeon Siege II and pizza. I love my life, sometimes.

On an unrelated note, let me clear one thing up. I am horrible with dates, as in calendar dates, not going-out dates (I'm fine, there, thankyewverramuch). As such, the only way I manage to send out birthday greetings to everybody is that it's on your LJ info, and my client tells don't go getting bent out of shape with me for not saying 'happy birthday' to you, if you haven't taken the 5 seconds it would take to make sure your b'day is in your info. Laugh, but I had someone all but scream in my face over feeling left out, because I missed their birthday due to this.

My Dad will actually be here next week, which seriously rocks my socks. He travels all over the country as part of his job, and will be in Seattle for a change, so he's gonna drive down and see me. Not only will it be good to see him, but he's never actually had a chance to meet Dianna, so this is an even greater moment for me. Hopefully, he'll be here a night that Erik is here as well, which would add another notch to the coolness.

caliban should be here next week as well, on Thursday, in preparation for the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival. Obviously, I'm looking forward to this! I miss the goofy bastard. Anyone else planning on being there? Wanna meet up, etc.? It's always even more fun when you have a group of friends.

Holy Squid! Photos Offer First Glimpse of Live Deep-Sea Giant

Like something straight out of a Jules Verne novel, an enormous tentacled creature looms out of the inky blackness of the deep Pacific waters. But this isn't science fiction. A set of extraordinary images captured by Japanese scientists marks the first-ever record of a live giant squid (Architeuthis) in the wild.

This kicks ass. We've known they existed, but we've only ever seen dead or dying beached specimens. To get photos of a live, active one is just too sweet.
