rengeek kit faustus commodorified

but first, a sandwich and a nap

Some time this morning was spent shoring up the engineering on the tomato cages, which are proving as inadequate for containment of the giant killer tomato plants within as King Kong's chains. A little staking and a few zip-ties seem to have alleviated the tendency to collapse.

They are doing rather well. I'm hoping the current Great New England Tomato Blight will pass me over (none of my plants were from Walmart, which may help--three I seeded myself (the Reisentraube and the two Amish Paste), two (the Cherokee Purples) are from thecoughlin, and two (the Black Klim and the Green Zebra) are from the tomato lady at the West Hartford farmer's market.)

No sign yet that the plants are affected, anyway--but seriously, a nice run of hot sunny weather would help. And some of the massive numbers of green tomatoes dripping off these plants might ripen if they got some sun....

That'd be nice.

Also, something is eating the green parts of my onions. I wonder if it's the bunny. They may have to just be be pearl onions...

Mmm, buttered pearl onions.

And me without a vampire icon.

Charming gentlemen with the manners of a prior age. Savage killing machines who surge screaming from hidden vaults. Cute little girls frozen forever in slender bodies. Long-buried loved ones who scratch at the door, begging to be let in. Nowhere is safe, not mist-shrouded Transylvania or the Italian Riviera or even a sleepy town in Maine. This is a hidden world, an eternal world, where nothing is forbidden--as long as you're willing to pay the price.
Today is launch day for johnjosephadams's anthology By Blood We Live, which includes fabulous stories by fabulous writers, and also something by me. ("House of the Rising Sun," in which a long-dead musician takes a stroll through San Diego.)

she loves the sun

Yeah, I'm late to the party.  Apparently, this has been her new look for years. *sigh*

matociquala (1:22:17 PM): Speaking of annoying, since when is Vixen a white girl?  (linky)
leahbobet (1:24:34 PM): Since the spinal surgery?
matociquala (1:24:57 PM): heee
matociquala (1:25:06 PM): They accidentally sent her to Michael Jackson's clinic?
leahbobet (1:25:37 PM): Who's bad?
matociquala (1:25:54 PM): Good lord, they did.
matociquala (1:25:56 PM): (link)
matociquala (1:26:04 PM): She had a process while she was there.
matociquala (1:26:36 PM): It chaps Diana's ass, too. You can tell because she's hiked up her panties to avoid irritating it.
matociquala (1:26:44 PM): How do you fight crime in anal floss?
leahbobet (1:27:03 PM): ...badly.
leahbobet (1:27:05 PM): With jiggles.
matociquala (1:27:09 PM): Her boobs are less ridiculous than Clark's biceps though.
leahbobet (1:27:11 PM): (okay, maybe Diana's butt doesn't jiggle.)
matociquala (1:27:19 PM): He has like four sets of muscles there
matociquala (1:27:26 PM): Diana has an ASS OF STEEL

For reference, the Vixen in my head looks like this.

...this is probably why I keep not reading superhero comics any more...
