To Put Things in Perspective

In case you didn't head to the informative capybara site I linked yesterday I thought I'd post a pic from their site.

Here is how big these critters get when fully grown. I'll leave it to you to do all the homework and get all the stats about size and weight (except Bitchitude...she wants YOU to do her homework!).

The stuff I will tell you...HUGE paws with LONG, scary claws (Just look at the size of the baby's claws in yesterday's post!). Fuzzy & soft nose, but coarse, wiry hair otherwise. Big teeth that you discover while petting the fuzzy & soft nose. Adorable at any size.

I hope this will better describe why I was so pleased to see a baby one & pick him up.

If not, well then you can all just fuck right off!

All critters sweet and fuzzy-- It's cute, even if it is a giant rat bastage! I likes furry critters! I'm too lazy to go look it up, but where are they from?

Thanks for the continual pimp, I owe ya... I've got people emailing me saying they got the link from some parrothead? Any clue? It sounded to be in jest, so I'm asking the jester... :)

Capybaras are from Australia & New Zealand area.

As for the Parrothead, I have a link to An American Parrothead in Canada. He may have something to do with it, but there are certainly many Parrothead bloggers out there.

Statcounter gives a good list of referring sites if ya need to install a good counter.

Cool, that's what I was thinking, was just REALLY too lazy to go look! Thanks Andy!

Oops, oh and my stat counters work just fine, the parrothead thing was via email.

Ok, cleared the cookies, delicious! (couldn't help myself, sorry) I've been listening to too many Chicago open mic comedians - "Panda express - those pandas are delicious - taste just like orange chicken..."

It's all in the delivery. Anyway. Thanks for the Capybara education, never knew they existed.

Did you know there is a language called Tagalog. I didn't either. I think they just made this one up.

And why would anyone want to learn Turkish? Does someone just wake up one morning and say, "I've gone long enough without being able to understand the Turks!!! I want to know what they are saying. I want to know what they are saying... about ME!"

Anyway. This may go through or it may not. If it does - hooah. If not, it's just another thing in my life that is wasted time. And if it goes through, it probably is another thing in your life that's wasted time, seeing that you probably read this.

It went through!

I actually think fucking off sounds pretty darn good right now (did taxes tonight). Thanks for the suggestion.

Blogger Andy Land said...

Any sort of fucking sounds good right now. Of course I'm married and so sexually deprived...ah nevermind.

Glad everyone is enjoying the capybara info.

BTW, don't talk about taxes. I'm being audited (AGAIN!) and I'm very bitter about it.

Joe, didn't I ban you?

Mr. Martello?

Does the capybara have a pouch? Did it haul you off for some jungle fun?

Have los federales driven you to seek cover?

Hey guy, damnit, where the hell are ya and HOW are ya? Hope all is well!

Blogger Andy Land said...

No pouch. The capybara is a rodent, just like a mouse.

As for where I've been, I've been busy with the Vegas Brothers and other things.

As for how I am, well...your post here came as I was publishing a post as to how I am. LOL!

So read the post as see for yourself.

Current Mood: Shitty!
Current Mantra: I SUCK!
Currency On-Hand: Not Much!

It was the flying penguini's--a magical karmatically induced psychic connection from across the big water.

Sorry life is in such a shit for you right now, go read my blog, (no really go READ the latest entry). You've managed to suck up my day with frikkin' flyin' penguinis.

And dude, let me just say, this crap will pass, hang in there.

I've also got somewhere else you can pimp your wares for cash, drop me an email and remind me to send it to you! It's not as uptight as that other place ;)

Most excellent post! Glad the gifts arrived safely.

I know this will pass, but in previous dry spells there was an end in sight. This time, there simply isn't one on the horizon. At least there's not one anyone can see.

See, because of the how & when of it all, I'm going to hit a cycle where I'm perpetual;ly going to be behind in paying for even the most basic of things. That cycle leads to a total failure of the system's integrity before too long and old Andy may not be really recovered for YEARS.

I'm one of the busier acts and when times are bad I always survive. Well kids, the other acts out there are calling me wondering if things are bad on my end, using my situation as a shit-storm barometer.

The sad news is that the shit-storm is actually a full-on crap-tornado fueled by a pound of Ex-Lax and people are figuring out that if I'm going down then it MUST be bad.

I can't say that I hate to be the bearer of bad news, because I kind of like ruining someone's day (and I'm one depressing and bitter mofo most of the time), but at least for now, things aren't really good.

Are there other people with worse problems? Hell yeah! Do I give a tinker's damn about any of those poor saps? Fuck NO! I spend most of my time working for other people's happiness. I get to brood and obsess (and yes overreact a bit) about my own sorry ass now.

I'm sorry, what did you say again?
