Consider these links to be my crazy purple gas knockout bomb.

Remember how I said you'd shit a brick when you found out what my wife got me for our ten-year anniversary? Well, I forgot to take a picture of it this weekend, so you'll either have to hold onto your unshat brick for another day or encourage her to post her photos. I'd hate to make her wait to crow about it, because it is an amazing thing she did, just mind-blowing.
I have a good excuse for forgetting to get the photo; we hosted a small get-together on Saturday with snowman, famousmark and their ladies which therefore required a truckload of cooking, baking, cleaning and prepwork on Friday night, and resulted in some after-party stunned sitting-around-and-falling-asleep-in-our-seats action afterwards. I intend to post at length about the dishes I cooked, the fun we had, and particularly the cocktails there mixed, but, um ... I forgot to write up those descriptions, too. Forgetting is the new remembering, as far as I'm concerned.
So, while I have nothing new of my own, please to check out:
- One of the things I miss most about Tucson is the All Souls Procession parade conducted downtown courtesy of Many Mouths One Stomach, and which features no end of awesome costumes, floats, fire-dancing, stilt-walking, and other general mania. I have photos of 2008's event on my Flickr, and more recently I was asked to contribute one of those photos to an article about Tucson's Seven Pipers Society which ran on the MMOS website.
- All around awesome dude Manning Krull has launched a new website cataloguing his experiences with all the cool things in Paris. I believe it's called "Awesome Stuff In France's Capitol City." This is totally fascinating stuff, and I'm pretty happy that I got to see at least half the stuff in the header image the last time I visited, including the now-closed Catacombes. Manning is pretty much the only guy I trust for tourism advice, so now you should go trust him too.
- While I'm pimping the awesome stuff my friends are doing, the extremely talented Jason L.Blair's creepy-as-hell RPG Little Fears Nightmare Edition launched recently, and is available for sale as a book or download. It's an inspired concept for a game, and Jason's been getting all sorts of acclaim for it, so check it out.
There, that ought to distract you until I get caught up with my livejournalling ...
