It's like Bridget Jones' Diary, but with a super-powered vigilante.

Why you no post, Marauder?

Wow, sorry I haven't posted much this week. Work has been hellishly busy.

A couple of quick notes:

  • My brother and Elfquest are coming to stay with me next weekend, which is Halloween. Time to do a sweep for incriminating material like porn and Marauderangs. Well, mostly porn.
  • Margo seems subdued and downbeat this week, compared to her usual self. She has a nice new blouse, though. Very MTM.
  • KLUB TV reported a Wombat sighting in Old Town. I wonder what he's doing in EC? I'll have to see if I can find him on patrol.
  • The Times had a nice op-ed piece about me - "Civic Spirit Embodied by Crimefighter." Score.

More later.

Ok, lets see if I can get this right...

Hey VM, I've become a fan as of late, and I have a question for you.

Why are you using Ramblerangs, instead of those Marauderangs that you said you were testing out?
You said in your fight with YIFF you were whacking him with Ramblerangs, so does this tell us that your Marauderangs aren't ready for “Marauder Time”?
( I just made that up ).

Just curious. Not trying to dis or anything, just wondering if maybe your branding might suffer if you are using another super heroes gear.
Maybe "My Guy" could get yours dialed in for you.
That would be sweet.

Anyway, keep up the good work.

Damn, what a tool I am! You think I could at least call my weaponry by the correct name.

It's no secret that I am a big fan of the Midnight Rambler. I asked My Guy to hook me up with some weapons similar in design to the Rambler's gauntlet-launched mini-boomerang things - the Ramblerangs. I got them, and after some initial trial and error with the gauntlet launchers, I'm using them operationally now. They're supposed to be called Marauderangs, but I can't help it - I always think of them as Ramblerangs. I didn't even realize that I was typing that. I guess that even on a subconscious level I am, as they say, "on the Midnight Rambler's dick."

You know, for a guy who's trying to craft his brand and identity as something more than just another Rambler knock-off, you'd think I'd be more careful. Thanks Kid Hollywood!
