Woman Humped To Death

An Australian woman was killed by a pet camel given to her as a 60th birthday present after the animal apparently tried to have sex, police said Sunday:

The 10-month-old male camel — weighing about 330 pounds — knocked the woman to the ground, lay on top of her, then exhibited what police suspect was mating behavior, said Detective Senior Constable Craig Gregory.

"I'd say it's probably been playing, or it may be even a sexual sort of thing," Gregory said, adding the camel almost suffocated the family's pet goat by straddling it on several occasions.

The woman was given the camel in March as a birthday present from her husband and daughter. "She had a love of exotic pets," Gregory said.

Back From The Front

It's been a long month. A long and virtually blog-less August. This is owed just about entirely to a whole load of traveling I've done over the past few weeks.

First up was the Wizard World Chicago Convention (by way of Cleveland), followed swiftly by The Glenlivet Gathering in Aviemore Scotland, and finally a jaunt to New Jersey & New York for the annual AYF Olympics. 

So what's come out of it all? Here are a few lessons learned on these exploits:

- Chicago traffic is horrible.
- Comic book conventions are almost cool, now.
- Scotland is more amazing each time you go.
- Glenlivet really is the finest scotch around (esp. the 18 yr. old)
- Inverness is the greatest city in the UK. You can argue, but I won't budge.
- Most of New Jersey smells like a mixture of trash & piss. This is not an exaggerated statement, and is based on empirical evidence rather than personal opinion. 
- It's good to be "home".

Now it's time to get back on the wagon, break down, bite the bullet, whatever - and find a job. Crappitty, crap, crap.

See you in the funny papers...
