I'd like to see a Frankenstein's monster fad. I didn't really like Mystery Men, but "Casanova Frankenstein" is the absolute coolest name for a villain there ever was. How about a gorgon fad, or a harpy fad? How about a Werewolf fad (oh wait), or a Creature from the Black Lagoon fad? A Godzilla fad? Why don't we see these around? It's because these creatures had personality. It takes creativity for someone to dress up as a big Kaiju monster and smash over a tilt-shift backdrop of Duluth with a flaming Elvis guitar-staff, but putting some latex-scar and L7 ripped shirts on and stumbling down to the mall has all the almost-originality of a flash-mob and all the scariness of the Munsters. Then again, I don't have the time to do anything of the sort so I guess I also don't have the right to complain. Baa-ck to the mall, you mimeographic monstrocities!
Anyway, I greased a palm and got my hall pass. I just need to do some serious cleaning in my domicile and prep myself for the ordeal that is dropping the dog off at the boarding place (seriously, it's like Linda Blair on a leash). I hope there's a bar at or near this hotel, I could use a drink like an alcoholic in denial (which I am NOT!!)
