If You Don’t Grab Life By The Balls, Life Will Grab You By The Throat

…true dat

Well, Grace is at school using the computer lab, the girls are snoozing after a prolonged wrasslin’ match and I’m on my second mug of tea (decaf, after the daily Bigass Mug Of Oolong) and things here at Casa del Basset Hound are perhaps a tad mellower and more lazy than they should be. Soon tho, I shall gird my loins (which, at my age takes about an hour, since loin girding is really a younger person’s game), grab bucket & mop and set forth to do battle with the front bathroom. But not just yet.

Adventure Seed #2: The Unstoppable Army

When daring daylight robberies by seemingly bulletproof men throw Shanghai into a panic, it’s time for Doc Tempest and his team to investigate. But just how do you stop an army of thugs who cannot even be touched? And just who is the beautiful blue skinned woman called Lirra? The trail leads from a hidden island in the Pacific to the ancient deserts of Austraila. Success seems close, until Doc and Sally are captured by a madman whose secret plans lie at the top of the world. Is this the end of Doc and his Sensational Six?

If any of you ever use any of these adventure seeds, let me know.

Damn, it’s taking me a long time to type this entry, no little thanks to having what amounts to a “Songs Make Doc Wanna Dance And/Or Rock Out” mix playing in the background. Here’s an example of just one…

ARTIST: The Marshall Tucker Band
TITLE: Heard It in a Love Song

I ain’t never been with a woman long enough for my boots to get old
But we’ve been together so long now they both need resoled
If I ever settle down, you’d be my kind
And that’s a good time for me to head on down the line

Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can’t be wrong

I’m the kind of man who likes to get away
Like to start dreamin’ ’bout tomorrow today
Never said that I loved you, even though it’s so
Where’s that duffel bag of mine, it’s time to go


I’m gonna be leavin’ at the break of dawn
Wish you could come but I don’t need no woman taggin’ along
Gonna sneak out that door, couldn’t stand to see you cry
I’d stay another year if I saw teardrops in your eye


I never had a damn thing, but what I had I had to leave it behind
You’re the hardest thing I ever tried to get off of my mind
Always something greener on the other side of that hill
I was born a wrangler and a rounder and I guess I always will


And now, a bit o’ the email readin’ and then the loin girdin’.
More blogtacular stuff later.

    I’m thinking that girding your loins may take you more time due to the Extreme Manliness of said loins.
