Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Somebody is going to get a whuppin'!

Stupid Roxy tagged me, so I guess I'll go along. If her husband doesn't beat her for tagging me, I will next time I see her (I think I can take her).

FIVE Jobs You've Had In Your Life:
1. 17th-century pirate - Aaarrrrr, them doubloons will soon be mine!
2. 18th-century Revolutionary - My first draft called for "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Pizza." Stupid Jefferson.
3. 19th-century empire-builder - I used "Cecil Rhodes" as a pseudonym.
4. 20th-century rock and roll star - until the Beatles stole all my songs to make them acceptable to a "white" audience.
5. 21st-century Dictator of All Reality - coming soon to a reality near you!

FIVE People You Are Going To Tag:
I don't tag people. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: memes come to die here!

Are you happy now, Ms. Roxy? Next time our paths cross, there's gonna be a beatdown! Of course, we're still not sure who is going to be doing the beating ...

¹ See if you can tell who my man-crush is on!
² The University of Leeds, specifically, where Ian Wood, probably the foremost authority on Merovingian studies alive, works.

What do you think of 24: Season 5 so far, Greg?

Thomas, so far it's been pretty good - I always like the breakneck speed of the first third of the season. I guessed what was going to happen, because it was the only way to really "shock" us, but it was still pretty shocking. I'm a little wary about the nerve gas, though - we've seen it all before. I honestly don't know how they could keep coming up with better threats to the country. So far, though, so pretty good.
