Sometimes I look at our stats (not too shabby, if I say so myself — thanks!) and I’m occasionally struck by the Google keywords that lead people here.
This week’s finest:
"job rejection hapless fuck"
Which takes you to my last major bitchfest. Well, we’re the sixth entry down, but whatever it takes to get ’em through the door, so to speak.
And introducing… Lyra the Russian Hamster!
I got this cutie as a surrprise for the wife, but then I called her at work and spoiled it.
Russian hamsters are related to dwarfs, so she won’t be getting much bigger.
I named her (pending spousal approval) after Lyra Belacqua, the main character in Philip Pullman‘s His Dark Materials trilogy. My new album is also inspired by these books. I’m thinking of calling it His Dork Materials. Kidding.
I’m nowhere near as excited about the upcoming film version as I am about this crazy cute hamster.
