After breakfast

Egg felt strangely hollow. As if his whole being had been scooped out.
Well, at least he wouldn't need to diet for a while.

Breakfast

Egg sat dispassionately in the cup.
The boiling had been cruel.
The soldiers prepared for action.
It would soon be over.

Re: Still alive?

Hey Norm and crew. If finances are a problem, how about a Kickstarter or some such?
Otherwise, I hope life is treating you well. We miss you :'(

The Monsters Made Me Do It: Using Art To Survive Depression

If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that I don’t just make these monsters. They make ME. I wouldn’t be myself without them and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Here's an example from the linked page: http://static.boredpanda.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/IMG_5171-58051e6157cf7__880.jpg S...

Machine in Me

It was the latest "wearable" craze.
Touched to bare skin, tendrils bonded to soft tissue and then to bone.
No going back.

Re: Still alive?

It's a couple of years since I last listened to DC and came back to it today for no obvious reason... I just needed some more weirdness in my life, I guess. :) Anyway, It's good to see a few stories published recently, but I do worry that Norm [and the crew] may be struggling to stay afloat. I hope ...

Staten Island Ferry Octopus Attack

Elaborate Bronze Memorial Dedicated to Staten Island Ferry Octopus Attack Tricks Tourists Monuments and vaguely descriptive plaques are commonplace around cities and heavily trafficked tourist areas, giving just enough insight into an historic event or landmark.

The anti-gravity unit hummed as the ground spun rapidly away beneath him. This was the last time he'd go off at a tangent. Ah... The First Men In The Moon , by H.G Wells Looks like it's true.

Re: Unfriend Me Please!

He pulled out scissors, needle and thread. He found an empty page then delicately added another friend to his Face Book. Good idea except that Dookiedan already posted a kickass, and winning, version of this meme. In PB&Jelly's defence, that earlier Twabble was posted before PB&Jelly regist...

That's all folks

Ah well. I guess I should be thankful. Things could be worse for me.
