morbid curiosity


as things move ahead around here toward both christmas and the debut of the perhapanauts at image, i am doing everything i can to get work done and the holidays started! the decorations have come out--but are not yet up. (sharon and i were gonna put sharon's tree up this past sunday for kayla 'cause she loves to climb and play in it, but we instead had to go to a small, but nice, comic show that had completely slipped my mind...) watched some of rudolph last night and plan on watching it's a wonderful life and a christmas story very soon!
going christmas shopping tomorrow and should have my card done in about a week.
still dunno what to get nick or my dad. my two dads. stupid dads, huh?
ya never know what to get 'em, 'cause when they want something, they go out and get it.

so, gettin' all christmas-y.

but that doesn't mean that my obsession with creepy stuff, paranormal stuff, cryptid stuff, and bizarre stuff just gets shut off, shut down, tuned out during the warm, traditional holiday festivities, no.
that's always on.

so when my friend, heather (hi, heather!!)--who reads this blog each week but never comments--sent me the e-mail/article below, i just had to share. i'll warn ya that's it's a bit graphic, but you're gonna look anyway...

A guy in St. Louis was driving to work on
Hwy 144 when he heard a 'pop'! .
He thought it sounded like a flat tire,
though his ride wasn't affected.
After pulling over, checking the tires and
finding them intact , he opened the hood
to look at the motor. Before the hood was
even all the way open he jumped back
in shock and knocked his head on the
partially opened hood, unable to believe
what his eyes were seeing!
Nobody was going to believe this!
You sure wouldn't have either!
Fortunately, a coworker with a camera
recognized him along side the road and
stopped to see if he could help.

Scroll down and check out the attachment photos to witness
for yourself the source of his amazement.
Now, this has to be right up there at the
top of the list of unusual but verified
'Reasons I was late for work'!

How'd you like to find this under your hood some morning?

so, not to leave you hanging on that grossness, here are a couple of nice holiday pictures to get you in the spirit and humming carols under your breath.

that's it for today!
i am outta here!
smell ya!

Adam Hutch said...

Man I just hate snakes!

Christian D. Leaf said...

Both"wow," "gross" and "WTF?" Was it his snake?

Cooper said...

Those pics were much better than sitting through SNAKES ON A PLANE...

Matt Wieringo said...

Damn. Poor snake. I hope it was quick.

And, yeah. SNAKES ON A PLANE was ass.

Warren said...

See? That's why I never want to go to St. Louis. All those giant snakes trying to steal your car...

Brian said...

Poor snake.

Quick , someone grab a frying pan.
I heard those things are tasty.

OK, OK - I was only kidding.
It won't taste good with engine grease on it anyway.

BTW- the podcast was coolest.
and I just got finished reading back posts from the weekend.

I believe the 8th wonder of the world is a little book called "Tellos" Colossal Hardcover.
