In brightest (holi)day...  
I posted this in its entirety on the SPWUG blog site, but this is just too cool a story to not post here as well.


I was planning to write a post concerning the holidays and other festive things, but something really weird just happened to me and I decided this was way more interesting. At least I hope it is.

The other day I was walking to the supermarket when I felt something in my boot, poking me on the foot. When I got home I fished around inside my boots and found nothing. The next day I felt nothing, even as I trudged through the mall while Christmas shopping. I got home and took off my boots. Nothing.

As I was putting on my boots this morning I felt something poke me in the foot again. This time I immediately reached inside and pulled out the last thing in the world I ever expected to be in there.

It was a Green Lantern ring.

For a split second I didn’t register the fact that it was too small for my hand, or that it was made completely out of cheap plastic, or that it looked like something you’d find at the bottom of a cereal box. All that crossed my mind in that split second were three words… “It’s about time!”

I still don’t know how this little thing managed to get into my boot and evade detection for two straight days. All I know is that for one tiny second I thought I was finally getting something I’ve always wanted for Christmas.

you're forgiven because you live in england. i'm sure you have your own superheroes, like lord poppycock who obliterates his foes by shouting "OH RUBBISH" and uses his monocle as night vision, x-ray vision, and heat vision all in one, and constantly does battle with his sworn enemy, bloody yank.

anyway here's green lantern: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Lantern

your wonderful nanny state has, at times, banned the word "ninja" from a cartoon, banned ninja swords, shuriken, nunchucks, etc. as well as any portrayal of such.

Well New York and California banned nunchucks too, which is a shame for me because I'd like to move to either place but am unwilling to part with my precious collection of sticks on chains.

Sad, yes?

california freaks out about everything, and new york isn't much different.
