Nixies

Heya, SEG-ers! It’s Stephanie again. Uncle Mort said I can go anywhere this week so I’m going to Germany. Over in Germany they have these faeries that live in water called Nixies. As soon as my plane touched down in Frankfurt I raced for my hotel room, filled up the bathtub and waited. I waited a long time. I left out a trail of Swedish Fish from the parking lot

The Jersey Devil

Hey, SEG-ers! I’m so excited. This is my first column! EVAR!!! I was brought in to take over the Page Five Ghoul, because the old guy got eaten by a bear or something. Gross.

You figure a guy who’s been up 72 straight hours on the best crystal of his life could wander through Shenzhen and buy 300,000 LEDs if he wanted to. Not there I guess. So, with CCR on shuffle, a handful of yellowjackets and deadline in a week, I ran through the jungle. By the time the jackets and the crystal wore off I was in Thailand, which is great because I have to meet a guy in Bangkok. Also great, for this week’s Page Five Ghoul.
