Far and away

Damn, I just spent hours on amazon clearing out old wishlists and updating their "recommendations." Jesus Christ, just because I bought one Michael McDonald cd, long ago, now they are recommending Doobie Brothers up the ass. NO THANKS. (Remember on What's Happenin' when they went to a Doobie Bros concert and Rerun got busted? Woodsy, I'm talking to you, and you alone.)

For Father's Day I bought Kyle the "The Complete Far Side 1980-1994". What I really wanted to get won't be released til October, so this will have to do. It's a complete collection with explanations, unreleased strips and letters. Totally interesting, and totally heavy. It weighs 20 pounds - that's more than the Kid. I nearly got a hernia lifting the thing.

Kyle probably wanted anime, but screw that. I will tell you this. In our shared netflix queue, we have a total of 145 items - FOUR of which are mine. One Pixies dvd, one New Order, and a few Queer as Folk-s. The anime. This is why I don't get all excited when the mail comes. No one sends me fun things anymore. Phone bills and Thai take-out menus, are not 'fun' mail.

Speaking of fun mail, wait til you see my friend's kid's bday invites I'm working on...

Sorry Ani, not MY Kid, some other kid.

Uh, I remember that episode too. Looks like Kyle got a great gift even if it wasn't more anime.
