not meant to be


for those of you in the southwest, craig will be appearing at the wizardworld texas con this weekend!
if you're in the area, stop by and tell him 'howdy!' and pick up some perhapanauts stuff so his trip won't be for nothing!


a week ago, sharon sent me an email--many of you probably saw it somewhere as these things tend to make the rounds--featuring a series of photos of two churches in the south having a rather public--and humorous--debate about whether dogs go to heaven or not on the signboards outside their churches.
i thought it was funny, wrote up my own little story about it, and planned to post it here. unfortunately, the jpgs of the photos were so small that you wouldn't be able to read them, thus negating the whole thing.
it was gonna be right here, but i had to put it away. maybe, if i can find those pictures at a readable size, i'll post it again.

instead, here are a couple of halloween pics sent to me by our pal, ernie cooper!
this one is of ernie and his pal, peter griffin...

and another of his friend, rebecca modeling some of the evening's awesome blood-red freaktoberfest beer!

also, here's a dog who is very mad about his costume...
(folks, dogs don't like bein' dressed up...)


"five for friday"

1. which kellogg's character wears a baker's hat?

2. what was the name of the captain of the mayflower?

3. what famous horror magazine, abbreviated FM, was published by forrest j ackerman from 1957 to 1983?

4. who played the bizarre method actor, max schreck, in the 2000 film, shadow of the vampire?

5. some classic rock trivia--

a. who was "born in a cross-fire hurricane?"

b. "woke last night to the sound of thunder,
how far off i sat and wondered,
started hummin' a song from 1962..."

c. the band lynyrd skynyrd was named after who?

d. "with this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground."

e. "And I'll lie too and say I don't mind
And as we seek so shall we find
And when you're feeling open I'll still be here
But not without a certain degree of fear
Of what will be with you and me
I still can see things hopefully"

have a great weekend!
smell ya later!

5C. Who I believe was the bands high school gym coach... I don't think they liked him much... for some reason I picture Billy Bob Thornton's character in "Mr. Woodcock."
