Easter treats! [Apr. 11th, 2009|08:57 pm]

Anna-Lena's mom (who turns 80 today) threw together some grub for Easter dinner, and it was pretty delicious! Some favorites (herring in mustard sauce, beer, couple shots of vodka) and some new stuff, including some dark smoked sliced meat that made the Pleistocene carnivore in me grunt with satisfaction. It was goooooood. I couldn't stop raving about it and asked what it was. "Hamburger," Anna-Lena said.

Bein' a Murriken I immediately said "No that's not, hamburger is ground beef." She assured me it was and got the package from the counter to show me the label. Sure enough, it said "Hamburger meat" on it. Growing ever more curious, I took the package from her and looked at the ingredients.


Horse. Meat. 100% equine flesh from the Americas.

I fuckin' ate Mr. Ed for Easter.

Blech! [Apr. 10th, 2009|07:37 am]
Cold's no better today. I'm taking today off. Monday will see Jason's (and, I hope, Wilbur's) drawings online.

Happy Easter, y'all.

Urgh, part II [Apr. 9th, 2009|08:53 pm]
Well, now I got a cold that's knocked me for a loop, and in trying to fulfull Jason's request I got in over my head on perspective drawing. Shit's hard, yo. Nonetheless I'll have something done for both him and Wilbur as soon as I can. The project continues!

jasonturner is the winner of the impromptu "Make Skinner draw something" contest. Thanks also to tedprior and zombichicken for playing - you guys were basically correct but Jason was more accurate. It's a character from Asterix the Gladiator: Gaius Nesenius, the prefect of Gaul who captures the Cacofonix the bard and presents him to Julius Caesar as a gift.

I was hoping Alexandre would comment so as to positively identify who this was a caricature of. He thinks it was of Rene Goscinny himself - Wikipedia seems to support this.

So, the plan is for the drawing either today or tomorrow to be Jason's request - depending on when I get it..

EDIT: Blaaaaargh! Why you guys gotta come up with right answers after I post the winner?! It makes me feel all bad inside. wilburonline just commented with a more exact answer than Jason.

*sigh* Fine. Jason gets first request, Wilbur gets second request. Both will be completed. (Hey, at least I'm drawing!) But as of now that's it. Maybe next week I'll throw another one out for the fun of it.
