Ahead of humor blog links, here's a few more pictures from Parc Festyland. Also, I'm not deliberately late; Livejournal went all Livejournal and refused to accept that I was logged in, or that my password was valid.
In the game room at Parc Festyland: Festy the Viking dragon dinosaur (?) plays video games instead of riding the roller coaster just outside. Quiet sarcasm directed at people who're in the game room at Parc Festyland instead of riding the roller coasters just ouside?
The Steeplechase-style ride at Parc Festyland. The horses are powered, rather than gravity-driven. The path winds through forest and there are statues along the way. Note the knight lurking just behind a bush, for example.
A pirate-themed water slide that people at Parc Festyland were going down even though it was (a) cold and (b) rainy.
I choose to believe that ``Local Technique'' is the name of Parc Festyland's official 80s hair metal band.
And now you know what comes next. Appearing on my humor blog the past week have been:
- How I Overcame The Face In My Room, a glimpse into my teenaged life. This week's major piece.
- Robert Benchley: How To Sell Goods, in which he shares what he's picked up.
- Again On The Turbolifts, a Caption This! from one of the episodes where Troi beat up Worf.
- The ‘Nothing Is Happening In Apartment 3-G’ Update, pointing to my mathematics blog and reminding people that nothing is happening in Apartment 3-G.
- Improved Supervillainy, because I realized one thing supervillains are doing wrong, besides doing wrong.
- Statistics Saturday: How I Evaluate The Truth Of A Thing, which now that I think about it is an idea I could've done more with. I might rehab it.
- Popeye is the King of the Mardi Gras, a great old cartoon featuring a Scenic Railway.
- My Favorite Fonzie, last week's major piece, about an album that I swear exists just exactly as I've described it.
