…featuring her pet sheep, Isabelle
Ok, folks, here’s Part One of
As I did last year, I’ve divided up the subjects into sections and added comments where I felt they were necessary. For starters, let’s look at some of my recurring themes.
Good old Bucky & Squint have been popping up as blog subjects since way back in my Blogger days. I’m sure they’ll be popping up in 2007.
Bucky & Squint Goose a Moose
Bucky & Squint Press The Red Button (it’s always a good idea to never press red buttons of any sort)
Bucky & Squint Build A Giant BattleMek
Bucky & Squint Buy A Duck (ducks pop up in my subject lines pretty often)
Bucky & Squint Learn To Fly
Bucky & Squint Hit The Road
Bucky & Squint Fly To China
I’m not sure why I started using kitty cats in my subject lines, but like Bucky & Squint, they’ve been around for ages.
The Kitty Cats Open A Brothel In Juarez (I used Juarez since is was slightly less clichéd than Tiajuana)
The Kitty Cats Go To The GAMA Trade Show (for you non-gamers, GTS is the original big industry trade show)
The Kitty Cats Start A Garden
The Kitty Cats Go Down Under
The Kitty Cats Hijack A Zeppelin (much cooler than a mere passenger plane)
The Kitty Cats Study Magic
The Kitty Cats Learn To Dance
The Kitty Cats Drive Route 66 (because it’s a tres cool drive)
Just so there is no confusion, I am the Horticultural Whore of whom I write.
The Horticultural Whore Is Going Crazy (many would answer this with “short trip, eh?”)
The Horticultural Whore Dives In (I’m big on diving in:)
The Horticultural Whore VS Gamera And Mothra
The Horticultural Whore Goes To Seed
The Horticultural Whore Does The Happy Springtime Dance (Yes, really. No, I won’t post video of it)
The Horticultural Whore Spreads It Around (what do you expect from a whore?)
The Horticultural Whore Bangs His Head Against The Wall (co, ya know, gardening is relaxing)
The Horticultural Whore Is Flame Broiled
The Horticultural Whore Goes Shopping (reason 15 why I’m not rich)
Ah yes, Potawango Island…that mythic place I created to explain where most of my nicknames for Grace come from.
The Rare And Beautiful Leaping Turtle Of Potawango Island
The Rare 6 Legged Hamster Of Potawango Island (note that this one alone is merely “rare”. I have no idea why.)
The Rare And Beautiful Potawango Island Singing Crab
The Rare And Colorful Feathered Tree Pig Of Potawango Island (and this one isn’t “beautiful”. Must be the mud on the plumage.)
The Rare And Wonderful Exploding Rats Of Potawango Island (ok, so exploding rats wouldn’t really be all that wonderful. So sue me.)
The Rare And Beautiful Bouncing Mice Of Potawango Island
The Rare And Beautiful Vampire Duck Of Potawango Island (again with the ducks)
The Rare and Beautiful Giggling Tree Kangaroo Of Potawango Island
Our old friend Mrs. Wangdoodle made several appearances this year. In fact, I think this was her most ever.
Mrs. Wangdoodle Gets Down And Funky
Mrs. Wangdoodle Buys A Elephant
Mrs. Wangdoodle Goes Outlaw
Mrs. Wangdoodle And Her Trained Hedgehogs (I’m pretty sure I
was drunk when I wrote that one.)
Mrs. Wangdoodle Freaks Out
Mrs. Wangdoodle Gets Naked
The Ten Blue Budgies may just be my oldest recurring subjects.
The Ten Blue Budgies Find The One Ring (Sweet Jesus, I am such a geek)
The 10 Blue Budgies Start A Gaming Group (why 10 instead of Ten? I have no fuckin’ clue)
The Ten Blue Budgies Explode
The Ten Blue Budgies Meet The Kitty Cats (Ooh ooh ooh! Subject crossover! More evidence of my unrestrained geekatude)
Someday, I need to collect all of the Doc Tempest titles in one bunch…just in case I want to use them in a pulp rpg series or something.
The Thrilling Adventures Of Dr. Tempest And His Electrical Airship (note to aspiring steampunk GMs: you cannot go wrong with the words “electrical” or “airship” in your adventure titles)
Doc Tempest And The Living Shadow (more crossover stuff)
The Astounding Adventures Of Dr. Tempest At The Earth’s Core (I’m a big fan of Pellucidar)
Doc Tempest And The Green Eye Of Doom
Doc Tempest And The Laughing Devil (laughing devils being far more sinister that giggling or grinning devils)
Doc Tempest And The Stairway To Heaven (I suppose this could be considered a Led Zeppelin crossover)
The Incredible Adventures Of Dr. Tempest During His Trip To Mars (cos Victorian Mars rules, mate)
Doc Tempest And The Frozen Men
The Daring Adventures Of Doctor Tempest And His Time Travelling Airship (I should have used “submarine” instead of airship. It sounds cooler)
Doc Tempest And The Curse Of The Snake God (all pulp heroes must meet a snake god sooner or later. it’s the law)
Doc Tempest And The Son Of Fu Manchu (yeah, more crossover stuff. Did Fu Manchu even have a son?)
J.K. Rowling should have used one of these Harry Potter titles for the final novel. What the fuck is a “Deathly Hallows” anyway?
Harry Potter And The Sexy Spirit
Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Guinness (inspired by the goblets of Guinness I was pounding down that night)
Harry Potter And His Wand Of Steel (inspired by…ok, ok, just kidding)
Harry Potter And The Bitchy Witches (comment deleted for reasons of self preservation)
Harry Potter And The Vibrating Broomstick
More Subjectivity Tomorrow
