Since returning to Vancouver, I’ve been surprisingly busy – much busier than I expected. In addition to reorganizing my library, filing eight months’ worth of mail, and completing Akemi’s sponsorship documents, I’ve been catching up on my reading and looking ahead to several projects (outlining and writing the novels, approvals on the Dark Matter comic book, finishing up a pilot script, plotting and writing a feature, researching and writing a historical mini-series). And then, of course, there’s this blog which takes up a surprising amount of my time given that I haven’t missed a daily entry in almost five years.
Ultimately, something’s gotta give – if only temporarily – and I’m afraid it’s going to have to be this blog.
In order to relieve some of the pressure and free myself up to tackle the 101 other things I need to do, I’ve decided to hand things off to the occasional guest blogger. But not just any guest blogger. I want someone intelligent, well-spoken, armed with wit, clever ideas, and an ability to entertain.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find anyone that met the aforementioned criteria so I just settled for whoever had the time and was willing to do it for minimal compensation.
And so, today, I hand the reins over to a longtime friend of this blog: Cookie Monster…
Tanks to Joe for grate introduksun. And box of Chips Ahoy! Me very honored, but dis not first time here. Some of monster’s memmorable visits inklood:

Today, me do review of first few episodes of Walking Dead.
Backstory for dose not watch show: Zombees eat people like tasty double-chocolit cookies wit sugar sprinkles. Nom nom nom!
Episode 1 (and 2) sinopsis: Group get stuk in traffik. Zombees walk by. Little gurl gets lost. Dey look for her.
Two hour premiere move slower den zombee wit bum knee. Group get stuk in traffik. Dey put old hat man on lookout dooty. Big misteak. Eyesight so bad he not notice HORDE of zombees sneaking up on him! WTF (What da Fudgee-O?)! How dat possible?!!! Anyway, dey hide under carz – ekcept one guy who decide to walk around, rub up against pointy car part, and cut hisself very bad. Bleeding! But saved by rednek who hide him under dead(er) zombee (who hopefully not cross-contamunate guy’s open wound but sssh sssh sssh). Coast seem clear but I say to Oscar sitting beside me “Look out for zombee stragglerz!” Little gurl not look out and chased into woodz. Sherriff go after her, save her, den lose her, den look for her, den go back, den talk, den talk some more, den look for her. Meanwile, everybody else talk. And talk some more. For some reason, Sherriff say okay for son to go out in woodz and help. Monster tink: “Hey, dangerous. But mebbe fadder nose best.” Fadder not nose best. Boy shot looking at deer. Oh boy.
Episode 3 sinopsis: Sherriff bring shot boy to farmhouse where doctor is. Wait for operashun while others go get medikal equipment. And wait.
Sherriff take boy to farmhouse. Doctor sez good news: deer shot first, slow bullet down so not hurt boy more badly. Doctor sez bad news: bullet stuck in boy and not go through. Monster sez: can’t have boat ways! Slow bullet or fast bullet better? Witch iz it?! Meanwile, other group walk threw woods. Blond wit terruble periferal vizion not notice walking beside strolling zombee and almost eaten. Everybody go back to farmhouse and talk except guy wit fever and old hat man who stay behind. And talk. Wife argue wit Sherriff best frend. Want to keep relayshunship sekret, but monster wonder how everyone else not know? If wife and Sherriff friend thot Sherriff dead, den why hid relayshunship before? Anyway, find church. Sherriff chat wit zombie Jesus. Meanwile, Sherriff friend and kid-shooter get medikal supplies. Someting almost happen…den episode end. 🙁
Cookie Monster good at two tings: eating cookies and criticizing. If you no can send cookies to monster, den send rekwests for stuff to review. Movie, teevee show or, best of both worlds: COOOOKIEEEEEES!
