So one time, Dave Secretary provided much happy distraction. Consequently, I thought a link to his blog might be welcome.

A couple of other related links: some cartoons linked to in the original thread by Dr-Baa. And why not include his band just because.

The answer is tawny.

But seriously, did you join MetaFilter because of that post?

I see now that the man himself has provided links to the cartoons (etc) at the top of his blog. I plead distraction.

i don't know why people complain about hurricanes; they're a blast. stuff gets knocked over and life becomes temporarily dangerous.

CNN, I hope you're paying attention. If you don't start telling the truth other people will. Proof is here.

I've very upset that you're talking to me, a complete stranger on a message board, differently than you would to a close friend in person.

His stories gave me a lot of good laughs. On bad days, I still like to think of his drunk Uncle Rick playing Scattergories. It always cheers me up!

Wait, his blog is in all lower case!
THIS IS NOT RIGHT.

THE FIRST TIME MY DAD TOOK ME AND MY SISTER CAMPING I WAS ABOUT 8 OR 9. I REMEMBER WE PARKED THE CAR, I JUMPED OUT AND IMMEDIATELY STEPPED ON A NAIL. WE HAD TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL AND THEN WE WENT HOME BECAUSE I HAD TO GET A TETANUS SHOT OR SOME KIND OF SHOT. IT'S ALL KIND OF HAZY.

THE SECOND TIME MY DAD TOOK ME AND MY SISTER CAMPING WAS A MONTH LATER, IN THE MIDDLE OF JULY. WE PARKED THE CAR, AND MY SISTER JUMPED OUT AND IMMEDIATELY TRIED TO LIFT UP SOME SORT OF BOULDER THAT WAS ON A HILL. I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHY SHE DID THIS. ANYWAY SHE ENDED UP BREAKING HER FINGER. WE HAD TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL, AND THEN WE HAD TO GO HOME BECAUSE SHE WANTED TO BE WITH MOM IN HER HOUR OF NEED.

AT THE END OF SUMMER, MY DAD, OUT OF COMPLETE DESPERATION TO GO CAMPING WITH THE KIDS, TOOK US OUT AGAIN. I REMEMBER HE SEEMED A BIT FIDGETY THE WHOLE WAY THERE, AND I REMEMBER HE WOULDN'T LET US OUT OF THE CAR UNTIL HE HAD SCOUTED AROUND A LITTLE BIT.

WHEN I GOT OUT OF THE CAR MY DAD WAS BUSY TAKING THE BUNGEE CORDS OFF THE ROOF. WE HAD ABOUT A BILLION THINGS UP ON THE CAR WHICH MY DAD HAD SECURED WITH AN UNNECESSARY AMOUNT OF BUNGEE CORDS. ANYWAY FOR SOME REASON I UNHOOKED ONE OF THE BUNGEE CORDS ON MY SIDE OF THE CAR. IT WHIZZED OVER THE CAR ROOF LIKE A METEOR AND CUT MY DAD DEEPLY IN HIS EYEBROW. WE HAD TO DRIVE TO THE HOSPITAL, THIS TIME WITH BLOOD STREAMING DOWN MY DAD'S FACE AND ME AND MY SISTER IN TEARS.


Seriously, why isn't this anthologized in a book?

I so desperately want this man Markovized.

His blog is less AWESOME LOUD STORIES, but he certainly gets around the world. Weird shit continues to happen to him also...

I liked it.

Thanks, I was hoping Dave Secretary hadn't disappeared off of the net.
