[photos|cancer] Caption contest

By request from , a new caption contest! Usual rules apply. I’ll collect captions in comments here (at both jlake.com and jaylake.livejournal.com) until I get bored with it, then build a voting poll, once I’m far enough off opiates to stitch that pseudocode together. Please try to limit the length of your entries or they may become truncated in the poll code.

Prize will be two of my books to the winner (depending on availability), plus, as always, bragging rights. Have fun!

    The painting George Seurat decided not to paint;

    My plan is already working. With a hat this crazy, who could be bothered to notice the rest of this unstylish stuff I’m carting around?

  9. Well, Mr. Lake, with your feeding tube and catheter permanently attached now you shouldn’t have to break from writing to attend to those annoying habits of eating or peeing.

  10. Patrick says:

    “This here is the WriterBot 4000. As you can see the tubes are directly interfaced with my creative organs. This allows me to continually output fiction at several hundred words per hour, even when sleeping. Unfortunately, it still means a drop in my writing output while I recover.”


    “One small step for Jay Lake, one giant leap for…Fuck Cancer.”

    jay_lake: Catheterized, half-asleep, and bringing home a baby bumblebee with @calendula_witch. Nothing stops me from morning walkies! #fb

    It’s Fashion Week here in Portland, Oregon, and one of our newest, hottest male models is walking the designer’s Pinnacle Achievement in What the Best Dressed Authors wear to debut their most recent, most FABulous Novel! (in this case, The Nacho that Floated on the Lake for a Week)

    I know Jay doesn’t watch Ugly Betty, but some of the rest of you might recognize the reference.
