New Digs

My office moved and I’m finally done unpacking in my brand new space. I brought all the stuff to make this spot uniquely mine. Kung fu picture I drew on 8-23-01 taped to the wall? Check:

Big bosom sword chick drawing put up as well? Check. Ariela the Warrior Nun action figure complete with claw, sword and hooker boots? Double check! Eastern European dude in the hall fixing my elevator? Czech. Everything is going according to plan.

I have more coffee cups than I can use. In fact I only use my battle tested Islamic coffee cup I bought in Dearborn in 1997 which is now missing a handle because I accidently wacked it on my way out of the cube one day (that’s an old picture). Rather than bury it and pronounce it shaheed I still use it to this day sans handle even though I have four other mugs at my disposal. But who wants to use a cup that says Michigan AIDS Task Force, Sheshiang Garden, or (god forbid) one with a picture of Frosty the Snowman getting jiggy with the season?
My kung fu guy is throwing a punch kind of off balance but he’s still kind of ok. I think it’s a distracting move to keep his enemy off balance while he tries to think of a plan.

    If I was in still in Michigan I would burn your mug while taunting you with a loud speaker

    Do your best. When MY coffee mug dies it gets 77 virgins. While your coffee mug is just sitting there in the afterlife looking stupid.

    I’m hungry. I’m going to have a burrito from Jalapeños. It’s nice being downtown where the restaurants abound!

  5. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    Is that Diitri’s place still there on Washington?

  6. Mexigogue says:

    Dimitris. Yeah I just went there for lunch instead of Jalapeños. I got a double cheeseburger, fries, and a coke. And I put hot sauce on my burger and ketchup and hot sauce on my fries.

  7. HMT says:

    yer kung-fu guy is merely practicing monkey style.

    all is as it should be.

  8. Citizen Quasar says:

    The nun-looking chic in the hooker boots can stay. However, the islamo-mug has to go. No apologies, I just hate Islam and hope they nuke Mecca some day during Ramadan.

    Don’t throw the mug out though. It could be used to collect stool samples or, at the very least, urine.

    Nothing personal.

    Wow, somebody around here isn’t for religious freedom. Your mug rocks hard, meximan.

  11. Mexigogue says:

    HOOAH! Thank you your royal Rackage!!!

    What’s on the fourth not being used cup?

    Maybe you should ask Valentina if she can help you find a replacement mug?

  13. Mexigogue says:

    The fourth cup just has some stupid birds on it. I accidently inherited that cup when I borrowed it from the office stash of extra cups and I never took it back. If you want to be technical you could argue that it would be theft by conversion but since there was no owner to convert it from (it was abandoned property) it was in legal limbo. (for case law see Finders v Keepers)

  14. Jim Darkness says:

    So… can I print out your kung-fu guy and hang it in my office?

    It’s friggin SWEET!

  15. Mexigogue says:

    By all means!!!!

  16. Cosmic Siren says:

    Why not just sneak it back into the new breakroom and abandon it? Or do you entertain at your desk?

  17. R says:

    Kung Fu guy is the bizomb.

    Is it just me or do all Mexicans have a certain affinity for sketching? Seriously, like I drew a lot as a kid, and all my cousins drew, and all the Spider-Man fan-fics are from Mexican kids.

    What’s up with that?

  18. Mexigogue says:

    I was always into Batman but I hear ya. It used to be I liked nothing more than some blank sheets of paper, a pencil, and a pencil sharpener. Those were the days!

    Rejection noted and accepted.

    I am in a really bad mood today.

  20. rae says:

    Nice drawing.

    I’m gonna send you a Pug Mug for your coffee.

  21. Cosmic Siren says:


    I was talking to my best friend tonight and told her about your Islamic mug and collection of replacement mugs people have fostered on you. She was very amused at your dedication.

  22. Jenn says:

    I just got a new coffee machine. My first stainless steal, programmable one. Woot!

    I don’t have a coffe mug, though. Any suggestions, oh Mexi one?

  23. Linny says:

    Lets play… “Whats on your desk?”

  24. Phelps says:

    I think that a coffee mug with the handle broken off is kind of like a blind guy. So you have the mug equivilent of a blind cleric mug.

    And while your mug is bitching about its shitty cup of rasins, mine has eventual resurection to look forward to.
