Magical mystery brain damage tour

Gary headed home to martial some resources for our trip to Mexico.  I headed to a show in Imperial.  I called 42561 to see if she would help with whatever Gary has planned.  She didn’t answer.  I decided not to call the Professor.  Something feels wrong about him now that I know Gary’s story.  IContinue reading “Magical mystery brain damage tour”

Take, take, take

Kinross and I lost our first tournament match last night in Tulsa.  We have one more match, which we’re going to win, and then we’ll be in the finals.  Stew was there with her and I’m 99% sure now that he was flirting with me.  Not exactly sure what to do with that.  But it’sContinue reading “Take, take, take”

Law and Order – Dracula and Mummy Unit

We were on the road to a show in Tulsa when the detective called.  She said that we needed to talk immediately.  The fact that she didn’t swear or threaten to kill me was unnerving.  I said we were talking right then.  She said that phones weren’t safe. We met at the Choctaw Casino inContinue reading “Law and Order – Dracula and Mummy Unit”

The guy that wrote Fight Club can eat it

I wasn’t sure my healing spell would work.  I’ve mostly used it on myself. Never for something as serious as a gunshot.  But it worked.  The bullet pushed out of Gary’s surprisingly well toned stomach like a little mole nosing out of the ground.  The wound mostly closed up.  Mostly.  He was still bleeding prettyContinue reading “The guy that wrote Fight Club can eat it”

Someday I’m going to get myself in real trouble thinking like this

I decided to stick with my original plan – investigate the slaughterhouse and if there’s illegal stuff there, call the cops.  Then if the guy magics or vampires his way out of it, that’s when we go to plan B – confrontation.   Since snooping is best done at night, we stopped at a roadside motelContinue reading “Someday I’m going to get myself in real trouble thinking like this”

A grasshopper in the mouth is worth two in the bun

Gary asked me where we were going.  I told him nothing had changed.  Our mission was to find the veterinarian and determine if he’s a blood mage.  Or a vampire.  Or “just” a murderer.  When he asked what we were going to do after we did find out, I wanted to tell him to shutContinue reading “A grasshopper in the mouth is worth two in the bun”

True Detective

In the movies they make it look like following someone is easy.  You just drive behind them.  Even if there’s no other cars around, they don’t notice.  Even if it’s night and you’re on a dirt road in the dark country and you have your headlights on, they don’t notice.  I think I had beenContinue reading “True Detective”

Showdown in the Killeen–Temple–Fort Hood metropolitan area

Sometimes movies make a point to say that killing is bad.  I’m not sure why they do that.  In the real world, most people know that murder is a pretty big deal.  And the people that don’t know that aren’t going to see the light because of a speech by Casey Affleck.  I asked GaryContinue reading “Showdown in the Killeen–Temple–Fort Hood metropolitan area”

I met Joe DeRosa once, he seemed alright

A lot of older wrestlers like to play the world-weary veteran role and dispense nuggets of wisdom to the young bucks. Regardless if they want to hear them.  One of the very few advantages of being in the biz for a while is that the new guys feel obligated to pretend to listen to you.Continue reading “I met Joe DeRosa once, he seemed alright”

Tears ‘n’ Tits (and vampires)

I don’t have a lot of experience with strip clubs.  It would be unusual if I did, since I’m neither a person who would patronize or perform at one.  They sometimes have wrestling shows at strip clubs but that’s the one kind of show that I avoid studiously.  I’ve heard bad things. I thought thatContinue reading “Tears ‘n’ Tits (and vampires)”
