My place? My ass!

Greetings, friends!

I imagine that some of you feel that it would be prudent at this point to elaborate upon my actual travels to establish some context. I do not wish to seem boorish, but I assure you that I will know when the time is right for you to know more of my history. For now, we shall merely deal with the recent memories. I will be brief.

I arrived in the state of Connecticut very recently from the more tolerable climes of South Carolina. I have been set up with some rather palatable (and free!) accomodations. Let it be known that us pooptoads prefer a dehumidified basement.

On my second day in town, I went out with a few of my new local friends and housemates to what seemed, on the surface, to be a rather inviting establishment of the musical variety. Thus, we trekked off to… Toad’s Place. Nothing in the deepest regions of my imagination could come up with something as apropos. Here we are outside of the venue.


A friendly fellow approached me shortly after this picture was taken and offered me ‘boomers,‘ which I was later informed were a type of toadstool. Had I known that, I may have procured some despite the relatively high price; I have found that one should always approach the local cuisine with an open mind. This solicitation aside, I must admit that I found the place rather inviting, except for all the funny-smelling smoke in the air.

The logo in particular was a particularly friendly sight:

If only I could dress as well as that chap.

The show itself was excellent. There were even some friendly individuals dressed up as fruit. I also spoke with management later in the evening. They assured me that I had no grounds for a lawsuit and there was precisely a zero percent chance that I would be qualified for any position of employment even if they HAD been hiring.

On our way out, I stopped to look for something to make my living quarters a bit more cozy. Unfortunately, the establishment you see below did not consider 1:30AM to fall within the necessary hours of operation.

I will return to you with more shortly. I have been sleeping well as of late and would like to maintain such Circadian perfection.
