This badass is Iguanacolossus fortis (“Mighty Iguana Colossus”), and he wins the Best Dinosaur Name of the Year 2010 award, hands down. This guy will coldcock any jackass what tries to hassle him.

I’m not sure which is better - the awesome illustration or the “…coldcock any jackass …” part of the description …..
Ok. As mentioned briefly in a previous post, I started a new job last Wednesday. And it fucking sucks. No, I’m not doing something degrading or disgusting (I save that for the weekends and people who pay MUCH better), but there’s just something … soul-sucking about it.
It took me 4 months to get this job (well, to get any job) and yet after 3 days I am back in the old Sunday depression. This is not good. I should be (or so I’ve been told) still in the ‘honeymoon period’ and looking forward to meeting the challenge or whatever.
Instead I just feel slightly nauseous about the thought of going in there tomorrow.
To put things in perspective, in my old job (which I held for 5 years) I used to bake stuff and take it in. You know, brownies, muffins, all kinds of good shit. These people? I don’t know if they deserve my muffins.
