Everything I bought at DragonCon including food and alcohol.

Though I think the peak autism is the comic book version of "Dragonflight" by Anne McCaffrey published by an independent comic book maker. Yeah that's primo autism.

Thanks for this, I'm gonna give that a try.
Turmat means "hiking food" by the way, a buddy of mine ate them everyday for six months when he got divorced and he still likes them! (they're in the realm of frozen pizzas and such, not fantastic but not bad, I don't want to oversell it)

They require hot water but can be done with cold/ambient water it just takes much longer. If no hot water is available(if you don't have a burner) then it can be transferred to a softer container/bag, pour in the water(a bit less than required), keep it inside your shirt and transfer body heat to it while hiking while it rehydrates. The change of bag is so that it doesn't spill/squish/squirts or chafe. That's a pro-strat, it won't be a hot meal but it will be a meal and you can get the water from streams and cold springs.

I've been collecting pulp paperbacks from the 60s and 70s lately and they're really cheap and easy to find in thrift stores around here. One I picked up yesterday called Naked Came the Stranger because I thought it would be funny trash, but I did some research and it turned out to be written as a hoax and I fell for the joke.

Wikipedia said:
Mike McGrady was convinced that popular American literary culture had become so base—with the best-seller lists dominated by the likes of Harold Robbins and Jacqueline Susann—that any book could succeed if enough sex was thrown in. To test his theory, in 1966 McGrady recruited a team of Newsday colleagues (according to Andreas Schroder,[3] nineteen men and five women) to collaborate on a sexually explicit novel with no literary or social value whatsoever.[1] McGrady co-edited the project with his Newsday colleague Harvey Aronson, and among the other collaborators were well-known writers including 1965 Pulitzer Prize winner Gene Goltz, 1970 Pulitzer Prize winner Robert W. Greene, and journalist Marilyn Berger.[4]
The group wrote the book as a deliberately inconsistent hodge-podge, with each chapter written by a different author. Some of the chapters had to be heavily edited, because they were originally too well written. The book was submitted for publication under the pseudonym "Penelope Ashe". (She was portrayed by Billie Young, McGrady's own sister-in-law, for photographs and meetings with publishers.)

I think that’s actually neater than a regular old trashy paperback for a collection. It has an amusing history and is completely a product of its time. Contemporary fakes and hoaxes can be a special part of a collection, even if just for their history. I have a small coin collection, and a couple of my favorites are two contemporary Hadrian era Roman counterfeits made of silver dipped copper.

My cat's current obsession:

Cattoy.jpg


Bought it about a week ago and it had some shiny thin wrapping around it and feathers sticking out of either end, and a bell. It crinkles and claims to have catnip in it.

He's obviously mauled it now, but still brings it to me in his mouth and drops it in front of me when he wants me to throw it for him. I really gotta get him another one.
