INTRO: What is this STRANGE NEW PLACE?! [sticky post]

WELCOME TO BENCHILADALAND!

Cute Boy
This is going to be a sticky post at the top of my LJ, giving people some content info.

Regular features that people seem to enjoy:


  Fuckbrain Comix shows you, with my special kind of "art," the inside of my brainmeats: Tourette's Syndrome, OCD, Bipolar Disorder, and maybe one or two others. Maybe you'll learn something.

  People are happy because I eat strange foods So You Don't Have To.

  Things I Can't /Draw is exactly what it says on the tin, from Inappropriate Comix to Hero / Villain-A-Day Every-Few-Months to the aformentioned Fuckbrain Comix.

  The Continuing Adventures of Sir Reginald are here, from my original stories to loads of art and comic adaptations by awesome people.

  The Truth will emerge, about your sexuality, drugs, kinks and fetishes, crushes, the parallel universe you, and that memory you'll never lose. Anonymous commenting with no IP logging is enabled for these entries.

  Toys in the Bookstacks is me having fauxmetti fun with my 3.4 billion toys and the library where I work.

  Five Questions are what I want from you. Maybe I'll even answer them someday.

  Audience partipation is strongly encouraged.

  Photos Of My Life may also be requested.


I think other stuff happens, too.

Photos pre-April 2008 might be broken due to a Flickr fuck-up. I'm slowly fixing it.

Enjoy your stay and tell your fucking friends.

Love,

Hey man,

This may sound like a really odd request from a random stranger, but i would like to ask, were you the creator of a cat_macro with 'ouroboros' on it?

I'm trying to get a copy of it...

Cheers

Nothing is odd to me, except voting Republican and eating tomatoes.

Here's our cat, Isis, representing infinity:

Perfect! Thank you! Your wonderful kitty and your macro have inspired my next tattoo...


Hmmm... I can understand the voting Republican being odd, but eating tomatoes? *raises eyebrow*

I'll eat anything that isn't a tomato.

Or nailed down.

Also, I demand photos of the tattoo when it's done. :D

You're an odd, odd creature. *cringes'n'gags* Your poor taste buds...

It might take me six months to draw it up and have the ink work done, but definitely, photos will be coming your way!

Good sir, hello! I have been lurking amongst the throngs of your faithful readers for some time, but alas, until now I have had nothing especially interesting or witty to contribute.

Until now. My beloved's mother not long ago gifted him with a rather strange foodstuff, the Halo-Halo Sweet Fruit Mixture, which her Philippine coworker at the hospital apparently swears by. Neither of us have had the courage to open the jar. Might you be interested in receiving said jar, perhaps for another riveting episode of So You Don't Have To? If not, I can hardly blame you, but I couldn't help but offer.

Welcome to commenting, lurker! :)

I would love to receive that jar so freaking much. I've been slack in my SYDHT filmings, so we just did one and will be posting it soon, but yours deserves to appear in an upcoming one.

You can send it to:

712 S. Anderson
Urbana, IL
61801

Thanks! :)

Excellent! We will definitely send the jar post-haste, and look forward to seeing your delighted and or horrified reactions.

I went through a weird period there of not posting daily and I'm still a billion years behind on everybody's posts, but I have a SYDHT ready to post first thing tomorrow morning.

And C-U salutes you back!

I followed you here from trashy_eats (yanno, kinda like a stray dog) and decided to become your personal groupie add you. Because I need more wonderful strangeness on my friends list.

Quick fact about me: I want to be Madeline Kahn when I grow up. Only, you know, alive.

I'm leaving this here because I don't have your email and I just had to tell you this little tidbit. You've been a real comfort when I've had to deal with Tourette's. Sometimes (I can't lie) I think, "Damn that guy's got it bad." because I think your TS is far more extreme then my own, but more often I think, "Oh hey! He's doing that thing I do." and I feel a quiet sense of camaraderie. Basically you bring me a great deal of comfort since no one else I know is clinically diagnosed, no matter how much some people claim their nervous habits as OCD/Tourettes.

Now at this point pause and have a big laugh. If you're not laughing then you haven't realized that I just said I look to you for a sense of normalcy. Yes, that's right, a good laugh. Let it aaaaall out.

A long time I ago I was introduced to shared tics. How two people with TS will sometimes pick up each other's tics. I've never known anyone else with TS so this was a theoretical thing. Though I sometimes suspect Eddie Izzard cause his mannerisms seem to creep in there.

Now the point of this post, I know you didn't expect one, is that strangely enough my foot has been hurting for the last three days. I'm a rather fat bastard so pain in my low extremities is not something I pay a lot of attention. Until yesturday when I started paying attention to my gait and finally figured out why my leg hurt. Based on my statements above you probably have figured this out already but, I have developed The Benchilida Pimp Limp (tm).

I know this was an overly verbose way of telling you this strange fact, but I've been drinking and watching Dexter for a couple hours. Verbose interior monologue is just coming out. Anyway, just remember, when your foot is killing you, somewhere, someplace, another crazed internet junkie with TS and a Wacom tablet is feeling your pain.

Thanks. ;)

Of course you may! No permission needed! I spend more time on FB than LJ these days, but soon my actual website will be up and feeding through here. Feel free to FB friend me as well.
