Everyone Should Have a Friend Like Jack Bauer.

A weaker man would have been crushed by what I have been through this week. But right now, I feel better than ever.

"How are you dealing with the loss of Bookie?" someone said to me yesterday.

"Who?" I said.

You see I have moved beyond Boogie or whatever his name was. Let the dead bury the dead, I say. Or that's what I said after my good friend Jack Bauer gave me his bookbag. For those of you who have seen the documentary '24' you will note that this is the very same bookbag that helped save America and the world.

So here is my newest, and what will probably be closest, friend: Captain Bookbagster (Jack named him, not me.)




I should have had Jack take a picture of me wearing it, but he didn't stick around-- Just like the rest of my 'friends' who left me as soon as they saw I was bookbagless. Except that Jack had to fight evil. Whereas my other 'friends' thought I was washed up.

Well, I'm not. And if you dare disagree, any offense you cause me will surely pale in comparison to the Wrath of Captain Bookbagster.

Wow, can Captain Bookbagster travel across all of Los Angeles during rush hour in the same amount of time it takes a normal man to take a piss?

That would be pretty cool if he had Jack's superpowers.

I liked your old bookbag better.

finding fair hope,
Personally, I feel like you are completely entitled to your opinion, no matter how uninformed it is by the greatest show ever. But, I'm telling you, Captain Bookbagster is very unstable.

Comrade K,
Last year, I participated in a 24 renactment and we found that it could all be pulled off. Frankly, if anything Jack moves too slow at times. I suppose this is realistic, especially in the last 12 hours of the show, as he probably would be operating slower than usual. j.

Justin, I fear Captain Bookbagster may be a double agent.

It may be time for you to update your wardrobe now that you are hangin' with such a stylish Bookbagster. Go with Chinos.

Taihae said...

bookbagster, why?! I know you think I drove you away, but this is simply going too far! you're too good for him. think of the times we had!

Misha said...

I wish I had a friend like Jack Bauer. I only have friends like Justin Kahn (my fingers really want to spell your name "Khan", I had to retype that part four times).

KHAAAAN!

In any case, I approve the change in book-carrying accoutrement.

well i'll be...your week turned out not half good/bad (however you care to look at it)

Justin said...

3.14, I've always said that the best people are always agnostic on the half full/half empty question. j.

Justin said...

misha, let's face it: you only have friends like 'khan' to get to bauer.

And what happened to the rest of your name. Didn't you used to be misha the impaller or something?

Justin said...

taihae, I read your comment to captian bookbagster and he started mumbling on about Annie Hall. Maybe that has some significance for you two? j.

Justin said...

goldennib, I will keep that in mind when I go shopping in 2010. j.

Justin said...

the aliens,
hey.

Justin said...

quilly, No worries. He is a triple agent. So it all works out. j

Maleah said...

That's a bookbag chicks will notice. It's so manly. Of course, they might just ask if they can borrow or hangout with it. But any attention is good attention, and wingman to Captain Bookbagster is not all that bad. You might get to help save the world!

Justin said...

maleah, I was mostly looking for a method of transporting books, but maybe Captain Bookbagster will help me find my soulmate. The cap't is a lot smarter than Neil Clark Warren. j.
