I'm Baaaack

(Above: File under old but amusing.)

Hello everyone! I'm just back from some book business that took me all the way across the country. I had a great time, and I even managed to fit in some "real" work. By that I mean underground explorations of course!

I finally had the chance to see Seattle's own underground city up-close. I highly recommend Bill Speidel's Underground Tour. The tour guide was hilarious, the underground world was fascinating, and there were many mentions of exploding toilets (not sure if the one below ever exploded).

So now that the contest has a winner and my work is over, it's time to get back to some weirdness. Look out for some tomorrow!

(P.S.: The judges of the 1000 Contest were the judges of all the other contests!)

(P.P.S.: The t-shirt entry I'd like to have made into a shirt is below. I love it because only the "Irregulars" out there would know what it means!)

Ooh, I went on the Underground Tour last summer on my trip to Seattle! I was wondering if you knew about that.

I would totally buy that shirt. Not kidding.

(I feel like I should know this, but...)By the way, is Atalanta named after the princess of Greek mythology fame?

I have always wanted to go to the Seattle Underground!! If I had known you were going, I would've asked you to drop by Bellingham!! How was the tour? I have been begging my parents to take me for several years, but so far to no avail.

Lol isn't there a real school called Atlanta? Most people will just think its a real school.

PS I change my name from Kiki Strike and pic from a picture of Kiki. I guess that makes things much less confusing.

Oh how was it underground?! Awesome?! It's always interesting seeing strange places. Hope you had a great time Kirsten! That cat is cute, and that t-shirt design is nice! :)

I love it! The simplicity of it and the fact that no one but us 'Irregulars' will know what it is......

I might go to Seattle this summer and I really want to see the underground city! I didn't even know there was one! (Sad, I know.) And I like the Atlanta shirt. I never connected the school in the book with the Greek huntress princess before. It makes some sense. I bet if atlanta met kiki strike, she probably would like her. They have a lot in common.

Atlanta Georgia.

That makes it even better! Kirsten, you should get that made in to a sweatshirt and it will be the dress code for when the world ends. All irregulars have to wear black pajamas(ninja clothes) and Atlanta sweatshirts.
