Okay, it's official: Pigpen made 3-D [Apr. 2nd, 2009|08:52 am]
I know that the current fashion is to have yourself turned into an anime (or as we old-timers call it, CARTOON) character. But you know me, always bucking the trend...

Last week, thanks to an ignition coil gone bad...lurking under my car's hood, flushed out by a brake job...at the very time we were supposed to be packing for NCRF, of course....I had to rent a car for the two days it took to fix everything.

The car was freshly washed and vacuumed when I picked it up. Two days later, when I returned it, it was not only filthy outside, but there was detritus all over the inside floor, and a fine layer of dust coating the interior.

And I did not transport an animal, eat food, or attend a renaissance faire in those two days. They've always been my excuses for why my car looks like a homeless person lives in it.

But now, no excuses.

I must face up to it: like Pigpen, I have a constant swirl of dust and detritus circling me. It's just not as visible to the human eye as was the cartoon characters. But trust me, it's there.

For years I've wondered why MDRF didn't simply run out of dust, since I seemed to be carrying foot-acres of it home with me. Now I understand -- you replenish the stock just by showing up every weekend.

For what it's worth, "anime" is the Japanese word for "animation." When one refers to "anime," they are specifically referring to a character from a Japanese animated show movie. There's a particular, recognizable style to anime, just as there is to American animation (e.g., Disney, DreamWorks, Pixar, Don Bluth, etc.).

So, you are correct, Pigpen is a *cartoon* character. ;)

I do actually know anime from Bugs Bunny, hon, but accuracy just isn't as funny as crochety ignorance...

I am winking my oversized round eye at you...
