Buddy (Six-String Samurai)

Boston Bound

Well, tomorrow I head off to Boston; I will be dropping Raz off at the hotel his LAN convention is happening in the early afternoon, so I will have a couple of hours to kill before suitboyskin gets out of work. Anybody have any suggestions?

In the meantime, suitboyskin and I had a conversation about The Chronicles of Narnia. He has read all seven books more recently than I have - I re-read The Voyage of the Dawn Treader a few years ago, but the others I haven't picked up since childhood. The subject of Tash and his appearance at the end of The Last Battle came up, and this situation was presented:

Poll #718432 Life Throws You Another Curve Ball

What would you do if you went into your kitchen and found Tash drinking the last of your beer?

Be torn asunder and devoured as you try to protect the beer (and if possible, your family).
Sneak quietly back to bed and hope that he's just passing through.
Try to bribe him with your uncle's mid-life crisis sports car.
Offer him your neighbors' children as a snack
Get out the video camera. You can't avoid death, at least you know your footage will show up on the internet somewhere.

I'm probably going to be up all night now.

Gearing up

It's 216 miles to Boston, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's bright outside and we're not wearing sunglasses.
