Crazy crap afoot, cap'n.

Someone's gone and jumped off the Rowes Wharf rotunda this morning. Just happened about 30 minutes ago, according to the orker whose boyfriend works nearby. Said boyfriend can see the "cloth-covered body" and police all around. Hasn't hit either online newspaper sites yet, so you heard it here first.

In case you haven't been, Swapatorium is a great and glorious collection of found objects, purchased from swap meets, flea markets, estate sales, what have you. And what have they.

Some of my favorites:

* Ignatius J. Reilly, izzat you?!
* The Yearbook of the Year (Rice yearbook circa 69-70, where they set up a photo booth and had the students take their own pics, slightly NWS in a few spots)
* Groovy Peter Max-esque thermometer
* Uh, lady, there seems to be a rocket blasting out of your hairdo.
* VOTE FOR LARRY

Oh yeah.

And I have a new icon above thanks to ROCKET MAN!
