Ruminations Apropos of nothing much

Did ya ever look through the comics pages and realize that they are not only recycling old strips, they are making the characters do double duty. Peppermint Patty, and her sidekick Marci also appear in Doonesbury as Duke, and his sidekick Honey Huan. It would explain a lot of things about Duke's gonzo personality. That over the edge gonzo wacko we know and love is really a lesbian transvestite. I mean Marci and Honey, regardless of their respective backstories, are essentially the exact same person.

I'm sometimes wondering if really I'm just a brain in a jar. It seems all my best ideas get stolen. I had a childhood fantasy of shooting down nuclear missiles with my trusty pea-shooter. Later, the game Missile Command comes out. Some of my best ideas ended up as saturday cartoon entertainment during the 70's and 80's. And a science fiction story I spent a dozen years playing with, has too many elements in common with the tv show Eureka to be fun anymore.

I really need to inform the bloggers I'm literarily stalking, (maybe it's one of those unrequited things where I can tell everyone except them), that I've linked to them and if they'd give me a shout, friendly or otherwise, I'd love them forever, which by my stopwatch is twenty minutes with b vitamins, an energy drink, and viagra....
