Slow Day At The Bookstore

(Comment overheard at "Kill City" Secondhand bookstore which is currently holding 25% off books about Hitler)

Man: Why do you guys have so many books on sale about Adolf Hitler?

Secondhand Bookstore Steve: (not even looking up from what he's reading) Well....everyone needs a leader.

What...this old thing? I'm surprised you noticed. Nah, I'm just messing with ya- It's frickin' awesome! I asked my housemate Darren if he'd like to work on my template for absolutely no money and very little return. He said no. But after four months of annoying the absolute shit out of him he grudgingly agreed and called me a little crybaby. So here it is. It's very 1950's Monster Movie Poster with a bunch of weirdos running from our old friend JC-271 LEVIATHAN who's devouring buildings and such in the background.

Yep, the JC Leviathan's now the star of the show. I think I'll address him in all my comment posts from now on instead of Fatman.

Fatman's feeling a little dejected these days. Even when I'm visiting mother and talking she'll often interrupt to ask me about my foul, tentacl'd monstrosity.

Me:....and so there I was, writhing on the mud while the paramedics were trying to stuff my entrails back in my...

Mum: Yes, yes, yes. Fine. But when are you bringing LEVIATHAN back?

Could she be Anonymous #1 I wonder?

Hey JC Leviathan- I'm asking all the targets on My List to send me a button, like an image or something that represents their blog so I can stick it on my list instead of the standard text ad. If you want to have Fatramblings advertised in all its glory, send me something at jokoba at excite dot com.

Er, apologies to the original 'Anonymous', and that other one, the 'New Original Anonymous' - that last post was actually mine. Temorarily unerved by the colour scheme. You know how it is.

Also, the 'Kongzilla' logo is unbelievably cool. You people are gods.

Oh. Hey Broadzilla. Yah- if you actually double-click on the 'Kongzilla' logo it takes you to Darren's site. Part of the pact I made when he agreed to improve my site gratis.Take a tour if you've got a spare 20 minutes.

I did go there, actually - and got a loading screen which didn't budge for about 10 minutes. At which point I decided it was either an elaborate concept piece, or the bandwidth in SA is suckier than I thought. I'll give it another bash.

So, are you just hoping that if you palm off a pic of JC on us, we'll forget about clamouring for actual text?

(groan) I'll give you a dollar to ghost write a new LEVIATHAN piece for me.

I'll have you know that our dollar is trading very well against the Botswanan pula these days.

No wait, I can.
