Don't carry that, or you'll turn into flames.

My daughter is five years old. She writes an elaborate series of comics called "The Eating Alien," starring a one-eyed alien named Johnny-Bobby-Boy. She has piles of notebooks scattered around the house, reminiscent of the piles of notebooks I had until I was 19 or 20 and finally started typing everything. She rarely shows me her comics, but sometimes I read them after she goes to sleep. She's five, I promise I'll stop invading her privacy in a few years.
The most recent installment of "The Eating Alien" I read was about aliens from Pluto and aliens from Texas. On one page, one alien was holding an unidentifiable object that sort of resembled a fried egg, and saying to another alien "Don't carry that, or you'll turn into flames."
I kind of like the syntax of that. Also, I think my kid is way more cool and strange than I was at her age.

can we talk about the weather?

In Michigan, the seasons are "hot" and "cold." Hot took a long time to get here this year, but now it's here and it's really really hot. And I live in a world without air-conditioning. Well, not really a world, just a house. That would be a super dull alternate universe, though (it was just like our world, only WITHOUT AIR CONDITIONING).

I'm at my last shift at the robot store at 826michigan. Not my last shift ever, but for now. I've been here more or less every Thursday evening since we opened the store in May of last year, and was here most Thursday evenings for the 7 or 8 months prior to that when we didn't even really have a store yet. Now my school schedule is interfering. Sad.

Michael Jackson is apparently dead. That just seems worth mentioning.

I have a lot of mosquito bites. I don't do anything to earn them like camping or canoeing, I just smoke a lot of cigarettes outside at night. I am allergic to mosquito bites, or more allergic than most people. They get really huge. I am itchy.

hi there.

I don't quite know what I'm doing with this yet.

I mean that in a content-related way, not technology-related. I know my way around blogger, thankyouverymuch 826 mustache-a-thon.

I wanted an internet-type place for writing related things, and this was easier than making an actual webpage.

Also, I apparently feel the need to defend my reasons for having a blog.

All the cool kids are doing it.

No one is reading this.
