You may have noticed that there’s been a lack of all things convenience store related here at Da Blog in the past few weeks. Well, there’s a reason for that. It seems that recently, more and more of my townsfolk (and thus my customers) have become aware of Kel The Convenience Store Clerk’s superhero alter-ego, aka R.J. Keller, and thus have begun to Google said pseudonym. I’m waiting for the initial hullabaloo to die down before continuing my faithful reporting on the topic, since I like being able to walk into town without having rotten veggies thrown my way.
Speaking of food, I woke up with a horrendous sweet tooth this morning. I could easily have scarfed down – on my own – an entire chocolate cake in one sitting. Thankfully I hate to cook, so there was no chocolate cake in the house. I had to make due with Strawberry Pop Tarts. (Hi Robin!!)
On another completely unrelated topic, you know those squirrels we’ve been harboring for nigh on three years? Turns out the little fuckers have been stealing the insulation from our walls to use for their squirrel home(s). To quote Shakespeare:
I hate ingratitude more in a squirrel
Than lying, vainness, babbling drunkenness,
Or any taint of vice, whose strong corruption
Inhabits our frail blood.
