Kero asleep

Next Time, Take the Train(ing)

I'm at SQL training today and tomorrow, in beautiful downtown NW District of Columbia, specifically, just off of 16th and P streets. It's the same instructor I had for my Cold Fusion training, and looks promising.

Unfortunately, I am sleepy as all get out; I got to bed an hour later than I wanted to last night, got up way too early this morning to get to Metro to get here in time, and haven't had any java this morning.

I feel guilty about no strips this week ... but on the other hand, the message boards are dead anyhow, so in a way I don't feel so bad. I'd like to think that the last week of "When Wally Met Mikey" is something that people are going to want to be able to talk about.

GameSpot reviews "Real Life" (whatever that is)

On an unrelated note, I've just checked out the AC art track schedule and am a bit underwhelmed. Even if they aren't interested in my offer to help with the webcomics panel, I was particularly hoping they'd take up Vince on his "Male/Female Tutorial" panel offer. I imagine I'll still check out the panels that are there, if only to check out the various artists' work (the only one I recognize offhand is Shawntae Howard).

Oh well, most of my fun at a con comes from hangin' out at the dealer table anyhow!

I Ache For the Touch of Your Lips, Dear...

But much more for the touch of your whips, dear!
You can raise welts
like nobody else
as we dance to the Masochism Tango!

Let our love be a flame, not an ember
Say it's me you want to dismember
blacken my eye
set fire to my tie
as we dance to the Masochism Tango!

At your command
before you here I stand
my heart is in my hand
it's here that I must be!

My heart entreats
just hear those savage beats
and go put on your cleats
and come and trample me!

Your heart is as hard as stone or maaaahogany
that's why I'm in such excquisite aaahgony
my soul is on fire
it's aflame with desire
which is why I perspire, when we tango!

You caught my nose...
in your left castanet, love...
I can feel the pain yet love...
every time I hear drums

And I envy the rose...
that you held in your teeth, love...
with the the thorn underneath, love...
sticking out of your gums

Your eyes cast a spell that bewitches
the last time I needed twenty stitches
to sew up the gash
you made with your lash
as we danced to the Masochism Tango

Bash in my brain!
And make me scream with pain!
Then kiss me once again!
And swear we'll never part

I know too well!
I'm underneath your spell!
So darling if you smell
something burning it's my heart
(hiccup!) Excuse me...

Take your cigarrette from its holder
and burn your initials in my shoulder
fracture my spine
and swear that you're mine
As we dance to the Masochism Tango!
