No, I was not the victim of a fatal window-washing accident, but I do appreciate all of the notes I received over the past three weeks. (Most of them went a little like this . . . "If you're dead, will The Darkness Dwellers still be published?") And I just want to assure you all . . . Kiki #3 will be published whether I kick the bucket or not.
I had to take a little time off from blogging/adventure in order to finish a project. Now that I'm done, I plan to resume my daredevil lifestyle. I've already signed up for a class on constructing "Anthropomorphic Insect Shadowboxes." (How cool is that?) I'm also going to spend a weekend throwing seed bombs around my hood. And I still need to have that seance I've been planning. (My ghost showed up again the other day. More on that later . . .)
But first I wanted to call your attention to the subject of pink slime. (Seen above, in all its glory.) It's made by "grinding together connective tissue and beef scraps normally destined for dog food." The mixture is then treated with ammonia hydroxide (usually used for cleaning floors) and blended into hamburger patties.
McDonald's, Taco Bell, and Burger King have already announced that they will no longer be adding the gunk to their food. But don't worry, pink slime fanatics! You won't have to go without your favorite meat-like treat! You see, there's one organization that still purchases the product. The US Government. What does the government do with the tons and tons of delicious pink slime it buys every year? Two words . . . school lunch.
