We have been here two weeks, and I haven't felt like writing before, since that first day.
I am sitting by the window now, up in this atrocious nursery, and there is nothing to hinder my writing as much as I please, save lack of strength.

I'm definitely not on enough drugs to make this post make sense, which makes me sad.

dear grant brissey:

I think you're my favourite person in the world right now. You've made christmas so much more interesting and alcohol infused.

Will someone turn on the coffee maker and start writing some SLOG articles for 26 Dec?

Ok, I have to go to Frys and get a diNovo mini.

Absinthe is the only viable explanation.

My condolences to your poor demented, delusional, disease addled mind, Grant. May it rest in peace.

@Sirkowski: Absinthe might be the only viable treatment.

1. Canterbury Tales woodcut, 1484
2. Map of Christmas Island (home of the ever disconcerting Coconut Crab)
3. Fat Mo'ai Kavakava, from Easter Island
4. French Explorer Alphonse Pinart Introduced to 'Queen Mother' Koreto of Easter Island and Her Daughters
5. ??? St. Peter's Cross made from posters applied to a plywood wall
6. Somewhere in Seattle on Christmas?
7. Mugshot of Jim Morrison, Sep. 20, 1970
8. Was this in The Stranger earlier?
9. I-5 on Christmas Eve?
10. Trained bear on a motorcycle
11. The Yellow Wallpaper b Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Perhaps there is some logic in the earlier pictures, but it's gone by the time we reach Jim Morrison.

Four Loko flashbacks? @Puty I agree, someone please send Grant a bottle of absinthe and quickly!

@20 Number five is or was on the wall across the street. I think six and nine were traffic reports.

Secret love note to me, but I say no. I reject Grant.

@Baconcat, are you secretly Grant's logic and sanity and lover?

Happy Boxing Day all.

@20, 22 I think number six is just a pan-up of the Traffic Report perspective from Grant's window - and nine Grant published the night before Christmas Eve, if I recall correctly.

Eight did get published in the Stranger - it's a still from that Second Ave convenience store video in which the fellow with his hands up is about to get kicked in the balls and all over by the undercover cop walking in that door, who'd mistaken him for another after-hours habitue of that block he'd been chasing.

I had no idea about the others - beautifully done @20!

This is starting to sound like "1408" meets "The Yellow Wallpaper".
