Now that is one happy tomato. I wonder what’s got the rest of the tomatoes down.
This photograph of rain is just another example of me taking pictures of stuff I didn’t think I could take pictures of in the first place – like smoke. Too bad I never got to take any photography classes in college… I guess taking photos of any subject is simply a matter of having the right lighting and background to make said subject show up… I guess.
Anyway, yeah, – a picture of the rain. Never thought I’d get that particular shot. I presume this isn’t what Creedence was talking about.
This spider has set up residence in the garage above the garbage cans. It’s probably a good spot for him… cycle of life, I guess. He’s welcome to stay there and do spider things until he gets too crazy with the web – then I’m bringing that knucklehead outside to be an amazing spider in the bushes.
I know there’s nothing in the photo for scale, but trust me when I tell you that this moth is at least two inches long. Seriously, On the real, For Real – whatever you prefer. It’s a really big moth. I first noticed the moth when the beating of his wings started knocking things over in the kitchen. The damn house shook when he landed on the wall.
So I’m saying the moth is big.
Upon my first visit to Disneyland and California Adventure just a few months ago, the signs got my attention right away. Here are just a few of my favorites. Read the rest of this entry
In Act 2, scene 2 of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare writes:
O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father, and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.
[Aside.] Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?
’Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself though, not a Montague.
What’s Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O! be some other name:
What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call’d,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name;
And for that name, which is no part of thee,
Take all myself.
Ya see, that’s all fancy talk for "You can all "chocolate" "dog shiz" and it won’t alter the taste; chocolate tastes like chocolate no matter what you call it.
I like signs – I can’t explain why, but I think signs are awesome. I talk about them all the time!
Here’s today’s sign, found at a small Italian restaurant. As you can see, they’ve… What, gone for a Morse Code style? I get that the dots are there to break up the words, but for some reason, this is still very funny to me.
That’s all – nothing too out of the ordinary. This short post might be a sign that my tendinitis is bothering me!
Hi, I’m Jamie, and if you didn’t already know, I’m a crotchety old man. Hence the following complaint (Do your best to imagine a garbled old man voice while reading the text below):
In my day (the eighties) we had die-cast metal Hot Wheels and we liked it that way. If your friend pissed you off, you’d just bean him in the head with a corvette or a station wagon and he’d know you meant business. Now these. .. These pathetic substitutes for Hot Wheels are not only poorly constructed, but look at this ridiculous marketing tie in! What kids want to play with the VW from Footloose or the convertible that was featured in Beverly Hills Cop? Why are they selling toys now that should have marketed to me twenty-five years ago!?!
This dude was just hanging out (“hanging out with his family, having himself a party!”) and didn’t seem to mind having his picture taken, so here we are.
We visited Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom this past weekend – this was my first time there and for the most part, my observations are based on a comparison with Six Flags Great Adventure. Let’s dive in: Read the rest of this entry
There’s been a an innovation in slushy technology, and I’m guess that it has wacked the Icee Bear out of his gourd! Does he have rabies now? He looks demented! Look at his face – look! Or maybe he’s just had too much sugar? I bet that’s it. Jeez, I bet that a lifetime spent drinking Icees have made him a diabetic. That’s a damn shame.
Sugar and bears don’t mix. Or do they?
That’s a bumble bee, right? I don’t actually know and I didn’t bother to look it up.
There he is again! (I have no idea if that is a male our a female.)
In the case of this bug… I don’t even know what to look up and I couldn’t get a good pic of him with my phone cam… So you’ll have to just trust me when I say that he is an unusual looking bug.
