Just back from a trip to Middle Earth (New Zealand)!
I was able to spend time with some of the very cool artists and film types who live down way under working on a semi-secret project that surely and absolutely involves zero hobbits.
I was also able to procure the very mighty Righteous Bison, quite handy when dealing with voracious Venusians (or Mad Hatters from the Tea Party!):
Everyone needs a Righteous Bison of their own - I wonder if I can register it with my local NRA? Best used for zapping highly endangered species and alien wildlife.
I did manage to have mangled a very large Colossal Squid with my trusty Bison - but it seems that some local Kiwis claim to have beaten me to the punch and have ole Colossal floating about in a noxious fluid in their National Museum.
