Using my powers for good and not evil


iTunes' party shuffle is playing: I Bid You Goodnight - Aaron Neville - Warm Your Heart
The other night I came home late and tired and went to say hello to my nephew's hamsters. One of the little bastards bit me. Then I giggled all the way back to my room and to sleep, wondering if it had been a radioactive hamster, whether I'd wake up and be bestowed superhero powers as 'Hamster Man', and what my costume would look like. Then the next morning I woke up and still had a balance of unfinished giggles. So I told my friends about Hamster Man, and I was glad they understood where I was coming from. Then I wondered if having these thoughts were an impediment to my ever figuring out the loose ends in the thing that I call my life. At the risk of being labelled copycat again, I quote E M Forster's epigraph to 'Howard's End': 'Only connect'. Try as I may, nothing seems to want it. 'No, not yet. No, not there'.

I don't think you'll need a costume. Heeheehee. Also, Hamster Man would just chew off his loose ends.

"What big teeth you have, Hamster Man."

"All the better to chew off loose ends with."

Fit a big wheel to Senoko Power Station and Hamster Man can meet Singapore's power needs for the next ... well, until he gets tired.

Hamster man. That is not sexy at all. I imagine him to be fat with a hairy back. Nasty.
