A bunch of things to talk about in this edition of This 'N That!
Remember the house ad for the DC/Marvel Wizard of Oz tabloid comic (if you don't, scroll down and you'll get to it)? Not long after I'd posted that here, I got an email from my buddy, Tony Isabella, concerning it:
I can't be 100% sure, but I think I wrote that Wizard of Oz ad you posted
the other day. I was using the "rule of three" even then, which is a bit
that many people have picked up from Martin Luther King.
The "most magical, most magnificient, most merriest" sure sounds like the
kind of thing I'd write, as does "sensational special features" a little
ways down. Either Stan or (more likely) Roy would have edited the copy,
but, like I said, I think I wrote the ad.
If you don't read Tony's online column, Tony's Online Tips, you should check it out by clicking the link there! World Famous Comics also hosts my weekly "Cover Stories" column, with a new edition every Sunday. This weekend should be installment #5!
Jessi's graduation ceremony Friday afternoon at Evergreen College was... well... long! It was three hours after it started before they announced her name... well over 1000 graduates there! The guest speaker was very good, I must say (I forget his name right now).
The party afterwards was a blast... I had been up until 3am getting things ready for it, and I got all kinds of compliments on the food. Just to give you an idea, here's what the spread was (and bear in mind everything was made to be Weight Watcher appropriate:
Veggie Tray: Carrots, Celery, Green Peppers, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Cherry Tomatoes, Mushrooms, with non-fat Ranch Dip
Fruit Tray: White Grapes, Red Grapes, Watermelon, Cantelope, Cherries, Honeydew Melon, Pineapple
Relish Tray: Dill Pickles, Sweet Pickles, Black Olives, Green Olives with Pimentos, Green Olives with Garlic, Green Olives with Almonds
Vegetarian Spaghetti with black olives, mushrooms, onions, and Morningstar Farms veggie crumbles (homemade, and cooked in the crockpot)
Pizza: Pepperoni, Combo, Ham and Pineapple
Pies: Strawberry Jello, Banana Cream, Chocolate Cream, Chocolate Banana Cream, Blueberry Cheesecake
I ended up making enough food for 2-3 times as many people who showed up! Guess I know what we'll be eating for the next few days, eh?
Today, we're heading back to Evergreen for "Super Saturday," which is kind of a post-graduation party/festival/fair thing.
Pop stuff: What I'm reading, watching, hearing, etc.
