And the Number of the Writers Shall be Seven

     There will be Seven writers.  Seven will be the number of the Writers, and the number of the writers shall be Seven.  Eight there will not be, and neither shall there be Six, excepting that we proceed to count to Seven.  Nine is right out!
     Unless, of course, I change my mind.  😉

     I was inspired a bit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail:

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

16. Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, “Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy.

17. And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs, and toads and tree-sloths, and fruit-bats and orangutans, and breakfast cereals …

18. Now did the Lord say, “First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three.

19. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out.

20. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.

     So, uh … Seven.  Not Eight.  Nor Six.  But Seven.

Oops, I Forgot to Mention…

     In case anyone was paying attention, we got a new writer here at, Zacque Hitchcock.  Zacque hails from Murr-a-vul, errr, Maryville, Tennessee.  I initially posted the “Spiders” video thanks to Zacque’s extremely warped sense of humor.
     He’s already building quite a repertoire of posts, some of which have already made it on the “Most Popular” list on the right.  That’s a good thing.

     So, thanks, Zacque, and welcome aboard!

     Also, be sure to check out photos and bios for all of our writers.  You can even contact them directly or send general “Hey, blog about this!” sorts of feedback on our Contact page.

Speaking in Estrogen

     A few months ago, when Monty started to return, I thought, “Ya know, we need some women writing on this blog.”  

     I was reading through a lot of blogs on LiveJournal, and trying to find someone who’d “be able to inject a bit of estrogen into our otherwise male-dominated blog.”  When I found a suitable subject and asked her about writing here at, she was initially interested, but serious ever came the conversation.

     Last night, I got an e-mail from her about a new post she’d written, and expressed interest in writing here.  And now … we’ve got a new writer!
     Welcome aboard, Kim!
