Seen the exciting new entry tagged as an Amateur Hour? It's not for the faint of heart, trust me. If anyone else out there is vomiting up things that shouldn't be in their stomachs then feel free to keep it to yourself. I wasn't going to put this one up but Lan made such a fuss (believe it or not, she thought it was hilarious) that I posted it to make her happy.
This makes the 5th or 6th frog related entry in the 'pedia. Weird ain't it? I never knew frogs were linked so strongly to the paranormal. Maybe there's something deeper that I am missing. In fiction you always hear about witches needing some part of a frog to make a spell complete. Then there's the story about the frog who was really a prince under a curse. Perhaps frogs are the link between the our world and the supernatural one. Wouldn't that be a kick in the head? All this time everybody was looking for aliens in UFO's and they should have been looking for tadpoles in the pond.
In case you're wondering, my beard looks as stupid as ever. Lan has taken to calling me "Grizzly" and I don't think Mr. Crowley likes it either. Jason on the other hand has got this full lush thing sprouting all over his face like he was the poster child for the hair club for men. He's started wearing flannel shirts and keeps talking about going skiing in Tennessee. Dexterity isn't Jason's long suit so I fear for his life if he does decide to drive up to snow and strap on a pair of skies.
In other news, you may have noticed that the Sea Serpent cam was down for a coupla days. Seems like the salt and sea air ain't good for electronics (who would have thunk it?) I paid the North Carolina boys the money for the old one and put a new one on the Freakylinks charge card. By the time you read this it should be back up and a running.
Keep sending me the e-mail and snail mail. I may not answer everything but I do get around to reading it. If you write a really disturbing one (or a nice mushy love note) I might preserve it forever in the hate mail/love mail section of the web site.
