Taller Ghost Walt

Or is it...

Got Stinks?

Well somebody here does. Not going to name names but they're not in this picture.
What? You can't see this picture? 
That's because it was taken in a "cloud." 

My only line of defense? 
It's something I picked up in elementary school. 

Sensitive question

Not quite sure how to phrase this...
I don't want to offend anybody...
But is it racist of me to think this dog toy is racist?

C'mon Disney, The Cows Too?!!

Dear Amanda Ruppe,

You wrote me a letter in 2005. 
It kinda fell through the cracks and ended up in a drawer.
I just found it again and want to answer it now.
But you forgot to put any return address on the envelope or in the letter.

So in case you're reading this. Write again. 
Use this address instead:
Jorge Garcia
Grass Skirt Productions
510 18th Ave
Honolulu, HI 96816

And I hope Snowy isn't still annoying you when he gets hungry.

Travel Size

I dig shopping in the travel size section. I like how everything looks the same only smaller. Like this Scope. But I think it's also exciting because it reminds you that you will be taking a trip very soon. 
Today I was browsing the travel size section looking for empty bottles to fill myself. But while I was there I found a few things.
This bottle had a weird shape and when I picked it up it got even better.
Black. Is that what the scent is called? Where are they going with this? There were red bottles in the bin as well so I picked it up thinking it would make it more clear. 
Supposedly this is what "Really Ripped Abs" smell like. 
So now I had to go to the deodorant section to see the real thing. How many "flavors" does this stuff come in? What does the full size look like? And I discovered that it was all a fraud. There was no regular size. With Bod Man it's travel size or nothing. 
But the greatest find were these.
First off they're called "Oops!"
And there are two in the pack. I took this picture holding it in my hand so you could see how compact the packaging is. AND THESE ARE TWO! Packed so tightly I almost felt I should soak it in water until they grew full size. But that would defeat Oops!'s whole purpose wouldn't it.
They actually unfold pretty easily once you find your "in."
But I guess the real question is what do they look like on...

One last thing from San Jose:
Mike Hampton of Hot Zombie Chicks... 
drew a picture of Hurley as a zombie.
Pretty sweet! Almost as scary as the time I really turned into a zombie.

Have I Told You How Cute My Dog Is?

She is freakin' adorable! I mean look at her.
And she does the cutest things. Like babies in general, she's always putting stuff in her mouth. Today I saw her trying to crawl behind the couch and then she was trying to eat something. With a firm statement I got her to drop it. And here it is. 
It appears to be the skull and neck bones of a gecko. Adorable.
Now I'm going to go wash my hands

San Jose Closeout

Stop it I'm shy (and missing a leg).
"I'm crushing your head." Literally.
This guy made me a fish biscuit. I couldn't bite through it. And it tasted awful. I think it was clay or concrete.
This guy came dressed as a bunny. Not because he was any specific character. He just had made this costume and how many times are you going to be able to wear a bunny costume?

San Jose - Weirdness

People have asked me if I've ever noticed "the numbers" in my everyday life. The answer has always been "no" until now. 

In the hotel I stayed at in San Jose, directly across from the door to my room was this:

I'd like to give you a closer look but I'm having trouble loading it with the blogger. But this picture has the numbers 4, 8, and 16 quite prominently. 

Then things started getting weird. 
For one, I became a giant. 
And went Rhino tipping.

Fan Mail is Done

It took two days. And over $100 in postage. But the fan mail is done. Whew!

My Weekend at SuperCon

Man the stuff I saw. The people I met.
The Predator was there.

And the Alien. 

They came on different days because they were the same guy. Which is good because they would be forced to fight. And like I said THEY WERE THE SAME GUY. By the way the Alien costume made him faint. Did I mention it was hot this weekend?
Saw Spidey. 

And Speedy.

And speaking of "speedy" I met the Flash, John Wesley Shipp. 
Man he's fast.

For the record

and for Karma.

I just paid the next cab driver over twice the fare.

And gave a homeless guy money and the rest of our pizza.

I mean it doesn't set things right wth the other cabbie. But maybe the universe.

I'm sorry

Mr. Cab Driver in San Jose.

I'm sorry my tabouleh leaked from the bag onto the back seat of your cab. Especially after you were so nice to take a detour and wait for us as we ordered our gyros to go. I really should have tipped you extra or something, after my girlfriend noticed it, to help ease the pain and dismay, but I didn't have smaller bills. (How was I supposed to know that the ATM was only going to give me fifties?) And I'm sorry I was too embarassed about it to even look back at you after I got out of the car because I knew I was leaving you with a dirty car.

And here you thought I was a nice guy because you overheard me cancelling the taxi I ordered because we jumped into yours. I'm not. I'm a jerk who messes cabs and stiffs the drivers.

So in case you run into me again. I owe you a beer.

My project

I promise I will get to it next week.

Grandpa Nicknames

I love to hear nicknames people have for their grandparents. More often it seems it's the grandFATHERS who get the nicknames. Grandmother may get something like "Nana" but the really odd ones that come from oldest grandchild tend to go to grandpa's. Names like "Far-far" and "Hi-Guy."

My grandpa was "Bente." "Bente" was named by my sister. I believe it came from my grandpa trying to call her over "Vente! Vente!" (Come here.)
So for us and my cousins it was always Abuela and Bente. In fact because it was so close to the spanish number "veinte" sometimes cards we got from them would be signed "Abuela and 20."

Update for those of you coming to see me at

The schedule currently has me doing panel both Saturday and Sunday.
I just got an update on my itinerary. I will only be doing the panel on Saturday. 
So if you are coming to hear panel, then Saturday is the day to come.
See you there.

The Roberts (Creepy)

Hey a buddy of mine wrote this comic book about what happens when serial killers get old. And as if it wasn't creepy enough he said that him and the artist actually used some of their own blood in the cover art. That's pretty gross but I'm sure it won't be on the actual printed cover. But I wouldn't lick it just in case. In fact as a general rule I wouldn't recommend  licking any comic book covers. (Oh man I just know one of you is going make some disgusting remark about Liberty Meadows or someone).

My very own Animal Planet

Took the dog outside for a pee and I caught this guy sitting on my pineapple doing pushups and showing neck skin. 
At first I thought he was coming on to me. But then I saw a smaller, most likely female lizard staring back at him. I ran for my camera because I wanted to catch him flaunting his colors. When I came back I realized the girl lizard went up the tree to check the bigger lizard with even more neck skin. I tried to shoot him but he ran onto the roof. So I went back and took a picture of the poor dejected loser. 
If only this was a high school movie little guy. Then you would have totally scored with her after she learned that it's not just about neck skin and pushups; but what's inside that counts. 
I never caught one of them doing the neck thing. But I found this on the internet. 
It looked something like that.

Sprouts a poppin'

Well the last time I tried to sprout seeds I had 4 total sprouts and only two made it to plants. But these two lettuce plants have provided me with about 2 or 3 salads already and it looks like I got at least one more.

I like eating this lettuce because I can walk around the house asking, "Would you like a garden salad? Literally?"

Well. I've decided to go it again on the starter pots and I think I'm getting better this. Look at all of these sprouts. 
And then on a whim because I had the seeds and I remembered something from elementary school, I shook some seeds over wet paper towel and covered it up. And presto if those didn't sprout too and root into the paper. I immediately moved them outside to get the sun on the them and they are looking great.

And sprouts keep coming.
So I think my odds of a not buying lettuce or spinach anymore are getting pretty damn good. And now I'm feeling pretty cocky about my abilities to sprout seeds. Every trial I learn more. I think I might not need to buy plants anymore and grow everything from seeds. Well maybe not. I'm an impatient man in my garden.
