Non-Sequitur # 42: Random Randomness from Random City

Mar-Vell and the Avengers. I think the art is Sal Buscema

Random!

The owner of the company that I work for brought his dog to work. I’m not good with dogs, I have no idea what kind of breed she is. Labrador Retriever?? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmx2bQDO1Vk I just know it’s a black dog and a female. The dog’s personality is kind of funny. She’ll follow you around if you don’t pat any attention to her, but if you acknowledge her, she’ll run off and bark. Like a co-worker said, I guess that’s just her way of playing.

They gave us free pizza at work not long ago. It was good, I guess.

Lance Briggs, linebacker for the Chicago Bears has a new comic book from Top Cow coming out called Seraph. Because I am lame, I missed out on a signing he had a couple of weeks ago. Screw Me. http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=35586

So, I’m coming home on the bus last week  and as we approach a major intersection close to where I live, I see that the police have one side of the street sectioned off. I just assumed that maybe there was an accident or something. The next day I was reading the paper and discovered that the police actually sectioned off the block because they had  gunmen holded up in one of the buildings there. I literally live down the street from where this was happening and go to the dollar store in that building. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2011-12-06/news/chi-police-activity-in-uptown-shuts-down-parts-of-red-purple-lines-20111205_1_cta-red-line-cta-buses-standoff  Welcome to Uptown! Git yer hands in the air, Mutha Fucka!!

There was something wrong with the coffee pot we use at work, so I was under the impression that there would be no coffee that day. I went to the vending machine in the building to get my caffeine fix. I drank half a cup of some of the worst coffee I had in my life. It tasted terrible and didn’t give me that smooth caffeine buzz I’m used to from the normal coffee we drink. This stuff made me jittery and uncomfortable. I swear it could been just brown water with crack in it or something. Luckily, the coffee pot got fixed a couple hours later and we were  able to have normal coffee. Yay, normal coffee! Boo, vending machine coffee!

Jelly Bellies! Because,uh...Jelly Belly!

Someone brought a bowl of jelly beans and placed them on our supervisor’s desk at work Friday. I ‘m pretty sure it was the boss just trying to be nice. I’m not normally a big candy guy, but yeah… this  particular day I found myself hanging around the supervisor’s desk just a little bit longer than normal, asking questions I pretty much knew the answer to, and just um, stuffing my face with sugar and gelatin and corn syrup. Can’t go wrong with a sugar buzz on a Friday.

Archie Meets Kiss:  Eff Yeah! Now THIS is what we need more of in the comics world !   Crossovers that can get people excited! Well, I was excited anyway. Long story short…Sabrina the  teen-aged witch tries to cast a spell of protection over Riverdale, but Veronica messes it up causing monsters to appear. The members of Kiss also appear determined to stop the monsters. How will they stop the monsters? “The only way we know how…WITH ROCK!” America, eff yea…

Watch this quick before Led Zeppelin makes You Tube take it down…

I don't want to drink my whiskey like you do. I don't need to spend my money but still do.
