O Me of Little Faith

O Me of Little Faith

I’m Back! Also: Kamchatka!

Hey, everyone. Thanks for minding the fort while I was gone. My wife, Aimee, and I enjoyed a week-long, no-kids Caribbean cruise with a few of our best friends. Had a great time. It looked a lot like this:

And this:

I’m still catching up after having missed a week of work and wading through my in-box, so it may be a few days before the regular posting continues. But in the meantime, thanks to all of you who participated in last week’s caption contest featuring me and a tank from the first Gulf War.


The winner is Travis Thompson, who came up with the following gem:

That’s ten… MILLION armies on Kamchatka!

Travis wins because his caption was creative (1), was funny (2), and met the secret third (3) criteria — it contained an obscure pop cultural reference. If you don’t know what he’s talking about, Travis is alluding to the board game RISK, which is one of my favorite games of all time. (Also, when it comes to geographical names, Kamchatka is a personal favorite. Hard to defend, RISK-wise, but always fun to say.)

Brilliant, Travis. My favorite by a long, long, long shot. Shoot me an email and I’ll send you your Pocket Guide to the Apocalypse fun pack. The contents of that pack have yet to be decided, but they will certainly include some cool stuff. I’ll gather it up tonight and let you know what you’ll get.

I am a fan. I’ve been to couple of his shows — one at a bar in Denver and one at Bongo Billy’s in Salida. The one in Salida was especially fun, because my friends and I were sitting about six feet from him. He’s so much fun to watch.
