Batman Sunday

Well I've finally gotten down to posting again, I am getting married in a few weeks time and the preceding months have been quite insane.  My friend Timothy Merks  is now contributing over at the  Fruitless Pursuits Blog, if you haven't been over there I thoroughly recommend you check it out. The other week at Fruitless Pursuits was declared batman week. I was wanting to get this done in time for Batman week but unfortunately with work and other stuff could not get it finished so I figured, Batman Sunday.

A small anecdote to go with this one, I remember when I was in about grade 6, I used to bring in this Robin action figure and batmobile to school and play with this other kid at lunch. I think that most of the other kids in our year had moved onto basketball (Jordan was huge at the time) by then, so you can imagine how super cool we were. So it was the end of the school day and lo and behold, I could not find my Robin figurine.

 I had just gotten the toy, and was actually more worried about getting in trouble with my mum, because she had warned me of the dangers of bringing toys to school, and there was no way in hell that I was going to come home empty handed. So I tell the teacher about the situation, and he proceeds to make an announcement to the class that I had lost my Robin doll (I was mortified at this point) and that no one would be leaving class until it was found.

It turned out it was in the tray under my desk, it had been wedged in a weird spot. Suffice to say it did not bode well in the short term for my popularity.

I'll leave with this

I'm also trying to get a submission into loopdeloop this month, can you figure out the theme? They are teaming up with  World AIDS Day and the theme is Condoms. It is yet to be seen whether I will get it done but I will try my darnedest.

Hope everybody is having a nice Sunday.

It's an important point in a man's life: when sissy dolls become ACTION FIGURES!

Glad you had a supportive mom, mine would have wondered why I wasn't playing basketball.
