Kung Fu Cowboy

...and causes the bell to tinkle wildly. A heavily muffled figure stumbles inside, nearly blown over by the high winds from outside.

A semi-forgotten shape propped up in the corner twitches...

The figure removes scarf, jacket and hat to reveal none other than Kung Fu Cowboy! He only has a moment to shake himself off before the Extra-Sharp Battleaxe hurls itself at him in homicidal greeting to the long absent cowboy. Kung Fu catches the Battleaxe and holds it firmly watching the darkened corners of the Box for Imps, goats and the other denizens of the Shop who have difficulty typing.

For the moment satisfied that he isn't about to be accosted by anything otherwordly he places the Battleaxe down on the counter and settles in to see what's been going on...

Hi guys! I'm kind of sad that the Magic Box has calmed down so much but I guess I'm as much to blame as anyone. I am glad that things have been picking up in the last month or two and perhaps we can ressurrect some sort of community from our beloved board.

The thing is I've reformatted my PC a couple of times in the past few months and the fact that I haven't actually posted in a while has made this one of the last links I remembered to add to my favourites again :) .

Hmmm...things that I've been doing...Well things here are still pretty boring, having missed out on my spot at uni last year I finally ran out of money so had to find a job. One of the civilians that took over my job after I left the army had been calling me for a while asking me to come back and work for him, so after doing a few other jobs and finding nothing that actually interested me I finally caved in and went back to work for the Army. Things are largely the same, except the chance that I'll get shot at is significantly lower.

I eventually got Serenity on DVD, and loved it. I still haven't seen Firefly though. Seeing the actor that played Caleb in the last few eps of Buffy in the light of a good guy was a little strange though. Once I got over that I enjoyed it immensely. I've recently been watching Season 5 of Buffy again. In the Ep before Giles buys the Magic Box, and they walk into the shop to find the shopkeeper dead I nearly died laughing. Tara calls the shopkeeper [what sounds to me like] Mr Boggedy. After so many years of referring to the magic shop shopkeeper as the boogedy boogedy shopkeeper I nearly fell over. I'd never noticed it before.

Gothic I never saw much of that season of Angel so I'm not sure. With any luck I'll be getting the box set of Angel for by birthday so I'll check it up :)

In other news I'm going to get a dog in the next few weeks. I'm getting tired of living alone and we always had animals in the house when I was growing up, I think it's time for me to be responsible and get one of my own. I'd really love to get a beagle, as I've always liked the breed, but my plan is to go to the RSPCA and save a dog from death row. At this stage I'm looking to get a small - medium sized pooch. More on this subject as it develops.

Well it's late and I'm tired so I'm going to sign off now. Just thought I'd let you all know that I am in fact still alive [despite my own Extra Sharp Battleaxe's efforts to the contrary], and to check in with how all of you are going.

Kung Fu Cowboy places his Battleaxe gently in the corner behind the counter, careful not to jolt it against anything lest it rise up again. In a bowl on the counter he places something best left un-described for the Imp to eat, out of his [apparently enormous] pockets he takes a bag of feed and pours some into another dish for the goat. Kung Fu turns to leave but a dark shape on top of the bookshelf catches his eye. Struck by an idea [and self preservation] he fishes what looks to be a calf leg out and tosses it into the air near the shelf. A large black paw swipes out of the darkness and snags it. Unholy gnawing sounds are soon heard...

Satisfied that everything is content and no longer too hungry, Kung Fu picks up his belongings and makes for the exit

Peace out, love, hugs and all that stuff *poof*
