whale + weapon

I just finished reading this book:

Apparently this makes me qualified to do what I've always dreamed of doing: creating a logo for Y's ebay username: Beluga Torpedo, selected by the random word generator. His vision: a combination beluga and torpedo. (Oh come on, can you come up with something better?)

I'm pretty much a professional now, so I'll henceforth refer to Mr. Beluga Torpedo as The Client. The Client was pleased with the final product, and because he is actually married to me {the extensively trained designer} he offered no payment. Instead, he had a decal made of the design and stuck it to his laptop for all to see -- the ultimate honor.

So the next time you're in the final stretch, mere moments away from winning your auction only to have it snatched from your very grasp at the last possible second, look around. Beluga Torpedo is always watching.
