Today's AbqJournal comics page (Thursday, June 26th, 2008) has the oddest editorial comment e-v-e-r. In black border under the comic, 9 Chickweed Lane
, it sez: Above comic subbed for content. Strip available at abqjournal.com/comics tomorrow.
Wha??? The comics are being expurgated?
Here's the not-fit-for-print comic:

Now that Battlestar Galactica has run its course, what's a geek to do this Friday night? See the Selsun Blue show at RB Winnings
this Friday night
, of course. When my husband first saw the Selsuns, he loved them so much that he swore they'd play at his wedding. Fast forward five years and my husband was the Selsuns' drummer and sure enough, I was walking… Continue

It's not just for tourists. Old Town- that place where we take our out of town friends for an afternoon stroll - is saying "Yoohoo, sailor" to the town at large. My suggested prescription for a Wednesday evening in summer: start at Seasons
with a margarita (with their house made sweet and sour - try the Hornitos version at $8). Climb down from the cantina (happy hour runs from 4-6:30) and head to the… Continue

Sorry about the long gap between postings! Aaron and I took a little getaway vacation last week. We spent a couple of days at the family cabin in Cloudcroft, NM
and then headed down to Las Cruces and ultimately El Paso for the Tom Waits concert.
Cloudcroft was a nice break from the heat. The second day we woke up to cloud cover and 50 degree F. temps! The first day we were there… Continue

Since I had the day off anyway, I went to the grand opening of Pro's Ranch Market. I got there 15 minutes before the opening and it was already insane! There were essentially no parking spots anywhere (and it is a HUGE parking lot). Then the line went all the way from the doors through some back-and-forth disneyland/airport security style lines
, and then… Continue

Tonight Eck, the Grumbeckle, and I attended the Pro's Ranch Market pre-grand-opening celebration.
We were greeted by a crowd of eager neighbors, vendors, and local VIPs, waiting to get in the front door. Among them were politicians including City Councilor Ken Sanchez, State Representative Mo Maestas, and Alan Armijo, former City Councilor and current County… Continue

I want to ride today. I want to leave work, go home, fire up the bike and cruise out to wherever. Maybe meet up other bikers or friends, have lunch and lazily hop around the city. Isn't that what the summer is for?
I want to worry less and ride more!
The feeling you get from riding is very addictive. As a passenger on the bike, I never felt the strong pull to ride. Don't get me wrong, I had a blast on the back, tooling… Continue

Barack Obama visited the Flying Star on Broadway
in Albuquerque early Monday afternoon to speak with working women. I was lucky enough to get a press credential and be allowed to cover the event. Even though, while I work, I am not, nor have ever been, a woman.
I got some really good pictures of the event. Click on any of the… Continue

So, I screwed up.
My flashdrive with all my blogs – pieces, musings, remnants, polished products – GONE! (Or at least it did not make the ride with me to our nation’s capital, which is currently more humid than a Finnish sauna and just as hot.)
So yesterday I got creative.
First, I racked my brain for Albuquerque connections in Washington DC.
I thought about a few – the scraggly pinyon pine… Continue

The first sight that greets a newcomer to Albuquerque from California is the barred door. Every house has them. We went all across the town, from Coors to Four Hills, and it was the same everywhere, north and south of I-40 alike. In NorCal, only worst ghettos have such amenities: Oakland, East Palo Alto, parts of SF. But those are quite localized. It was pretty shocking to see a city so big covered with barred doors.
With time, I'm getting desensitized to the bars and do not cry to… Continue

To the Woman Who Lost Her Hair Extensions on the floor of the Home Depot
Thank you for making my day. When the kindly old man starting wandering around the nursery aisles with a clump of highlighted brunette fabulousness asking everyone he could find if they'd lost their hair; well I practically collapsed laughing into the vegetables.
Here's hoping your hair made it back to your waiting arms safely.
