me and my vulture

Hell-Holes of the World - an illustrated guide

Thanks, guys, for the encouraging words - they make me feel all warm and fuzzy.

Unfortuately, the migraine I have is not very warm and fuzzy  - it's more stabby and mean - so I'm not feeling up to writing much today.  

...Except to note the huge increase in Starving-Children-in-Hellholes charity ads; it's one of the charms of the season.  I like to think of them going through whichever picturesquely impoverished bit of town they've staked out, sifting through the available urchins and only picking the prettiest ones:  "no... no... did you see the ears on that one?! ...no, cleft palate - save that one for the doctor charities... oh, this one's perfect!  She looks like a cross between a furby and Sailor Moon!  Quick, muss up her hair, and daub a few artful smudges of indigenous dirt on her!"
