    I love that my husband puts up with my weird quirks. We just spent 10 minutes arguing about one of my favorite characters in my favorite manga. It was satisfying.

    How the hell is Pussy Riot's stuff more of a news headline than Kalashnikov dying?

    I just got a double retweet from a fantasy publisher with ten times more followers than me.

    I love when a brewery retweets my tweet, especially a larger one like Deschutes or Sierra Nevada. I've got a good relationship with the local cidery and they regularly retweet my stuff.

    Dear God, it's crazy out there. Thankfully, I stocked up. Two bottles of Christmas wine, just for me.

    So it seems like there might be a facebook showdown with daughter #2 over this whole Blackfish movie. Let the fireworks begin.

    You may have heard about Detroit's bankruptcy, which is likely to force the sale of many items from the Detroit Institute of Arts:

    From Craigslist: Museum Quality Art Collection

    Museum Quality Art Collection (5200 Woodward Ave, Detroi)

    Lost our lease- must sell asap. Thousands of items now at rock bottom prices. Paintings, Sculptures and other decorative items - Lots of sofa-size items. Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of history. Here are just a few examples of our excess inventory:

    "The Wedding Dance," Pieter Bruegel I -- $100 million-$200 million - pretty colors

    "Self Portrait with Straw Hat," Vincent Van Gogh -- $80 million-$150 million - price reduced even
    further - missing one ear.

    "The Visitation," Rembrandt Harmensz. Van Rijn -- $50 million-$90 million - great for the holidays

    "Le guéridon," Henri Matisse -- $40 million-$80 million - price reduced - missing clothing

    "Danseuses au foyer (La Contrebasse)," Edgar Degas -- $20 million-$40 million - What's a foyer?

    "Gladioli," Claude Monet -- $12 million-$20 million - perfect for kitchen or bath

    "Scheme for the decoration of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel," Michelangelo -- $12 million-$20 million - just some practice drawing

    "The Palla Altarpiece: Tobias and Three Archangels," Neri Di Bicci -- $8 million-$15 million
    would look great with christmas lights

    "Portrait of Hendrik Swalmius," Frans Hals -- $6 million-$10 million
    put some Hals in your halls!

    "Madonna and Child," Giovanni Bellini and Workshop -- $4 million-$10 million
    great gift for mom,

    "In the Studio," Michiel Sweerts -- $5 million-$10 million
    Not the real Motown Studio

    And many more items too numerous to post here. Also available large warehouse- has paint on walls - needs painting over.

    Kalashnikov is probably the single most important human being ever. Look at his contributions to world peace.

    Reached the point in the holiday where I've done all the shopping I'm gonna do. If it ain't bought, it ain't important.

    In honor of Kalashnikov, I spent the last couple hours on the couch playing with my Romanian SAR-1 AKM variant and watching The Walking Dead.
