Observation #902

The perfect business idea: Jesus Chocolate. Every Easter, I could fix up some molds and make money selling three kinds of Jesus to churches and cynics. There would be A Chocolate Jesus Carrying His Cross, A Chocolate Jesus Being Crucified, and A Chocolate Zombie Jesus.

I'd make millions.

you can't have your zombie jesus until you finish crucified jesus.

You're a dork. It's not enough to have Jesus stealing your car, you have to make him a chocolate zombie too.

No way. Easter is all about hoss cross buns. Screw the chocolate.

the hoss?

heh. i dunno what it is, but if you sit there and say, 'the hoss the hoss' a couple of times, it's really quite funny.

Hoss cross buns just rolls of the tongue smoother than hot cross buns.

You're a chatty zombie, which means you're not a zombie, you're a vampire. Obviously, labouring under the impression that you're a chocolate jesus zombie isn't going to help you get any.

Melting. You know. Can't stay hard. Not conductive to long nights of rampant zombie/vampire sex.

it's a good thing i'm not really a chocolate zombie then, isn't it? not, you know, that it matters one way or another.

Definitely a good thing. Chocolate stains are imposssible to get out.

If you want to suck on carpet, go ahead.

You're on to something there, Ben. Especially with the zombie Jesus chocolate. Check this out.

And I think there is even book called Chocolate Jesus. But I've just heard the title and was too lazy to amazon AND google for the same comment.

jonquil linked to the empty tomb snack back in February, which is how I know that the site exists.

And the perfect family activity on good Friday when everything is closed and there's nothing to do.

Me too.

Although I think the ACT has the advantage over WA in that it's legal to buy and sell alcohol here. WA still has some stupid regulations when it comes to holiday and weekend trading.

that's funny cause the local sci fi scene have all gone to perth for a con. ha! i hope it's true. that'd drive them all insane.

I think restaurants and hotels may be different. But the pubs and bottleshops are shut. The usual strategy is to buy way more alcohol than one needs the day before and have a party somewhere.

One day I'll go to a Swancon, but generally I can't be bothered.

well, i'm sure they all stocked up. cons are all about the drinking and bar for authors.

personally, i've no interested in swancon, but you could really say i had no real interest in any convention. i find the whole intense people thing drives me a bit insane after a while, and i actually have very little interest in panels, and listening to people talk. it's just not my scene. still, looks like i'll be hitting a few of them next year.

Yeah, I've just been put off by stories about people who stay in the video rooms for the whole time. That and we/I used to organize doofs every easter weekend, so there was a clash of interests for about 3 years.

The people I know and like in the Perth SF community tend to be more academic, and I tend to see some of them when I'm at Murdoch U.

the people are okay. i've nothing bad to say about the people at cons, though there's that usual clique buddies been here before friends parties deal thing, but otherwise, the majority are quite nice.

still, there are years to pick going to a swancon. this year it isn't the national convention, so it's smaller. if you go when it is the national con, it'll be bigger, from what i understand.

Heh, why do you think I'm not at the con. No alcohol, no point.
