Too Much T.V- Brain Fried, Please Send Replacement

I'm currently taking Chemistry 111, (as well as Ethnic Relations 101 and History 144 but those are irrelevant to this story) and my chem professor is a really interesting guy. He's intelligent and personable in a cool way, which really helps with a subject like chemistry.

Dr. R also loves outdoor winter sports, but not mundane things like skiing. The man goes mountain climbing in the snow. On top of that he helped a friend of his get into the Guinness' Book of World Records by helping to invent something dubbed The Snow Pod. It's a cross between a wheelchair and a tank, and his friend, who is a paraplegic, is able to get himself up a glacier at a sixty degree angle! The whole thing is powered by the friend using it-- it has a sprocket like a bicycle's pedals are attached to. Essentially the man pedals himself to the top of a snowy mountain using his arms. It is very, very impressive.

My reasons for telling you this on a horror blog? Dr. looks almost EXACTLY like Doug Jones as the zombie Billy Butcherson in Hocus Pocus.

Any person that looks like Doug Jones has got to be good people. Just saying.

Nooooo!!!! My daughter watches that movie 4 times a damn week. There's just so much Bette Midler and Virgin talk that one can take!!!

BTW, I want to let you know that I am still an avid reader of the Creepy Kitch blog... I subscribed to it on my phone's rss reader and it won't allow me to comment :( Since I usually read it on the go, I've been a slacker.

Mikey-- actually, I love him! I had to drop my last attempt at chemistry because the professor was terrible. I'm delighted to have a kind man who explains things like how the hell valence shells fill. And who looks like Doug Jones.

Bonesaw: You love it, and you KNOW IT!

No worries, I know all too well what life on the run is like. :)
