9029 - wed

Dreamt of the boardwalk coming to life like a Japanese Umbrella Monster. Why? Now I wonder how many 100-year old things are in the house. I'm guessing not much, save for a few books and coins.

BHK made a tasty pseudo-chicken / broccoli / alfredo noodle dish... I scarfed down two full bowls of the stuff... and they were not little bowls. The in-laws invited us to chinese food, but I think that I came out way ahead with what I got.

Nifty Iron Man art meme, reminds me a bit of the batgirl one done way back when... I wonder if GP and/ or Kat will do one? I dig Paul Conrad's stuff.. and all of 'em are groovy. See Also the Stan Lee Tribute page.
