It's not JUST about what I had for breakfast...

I found this nifty plate laying about the place. My wife says she got it at the ninety-nine cent store, along with a red one that says "Bloody Mary" on it. We can't find the red one right now. I can't WAIT to see the picture on THAT one!

So cool, so laid-back, so drunk...

THE BACK of the plate. It say's "Shonfeld's" under the white gunk. They have a web site. It does not totally work.

Illegal Library

Saw a link to "Yahoo! Answers wins for once." I'm glad I clicked on it. It is titled "Is it OK to run an illegal library from my locker at school?" A student attends a high school that does not allow certain books in its library. The student is running a library out of their locker. It sounds like it is very popular. It also sounds like a good idea to me!

Of the books listed, I think we have about a third of the titles in our middle school library.

That And THIS

Firstly, I made this all-purpose holder for my folders. Bone, that is!

I covered a cardboard tube (from laminating film roll) with an old book jacket, since you asked.

Secondly, (shot while waiting for my ├ępouse at doctor) what is this strap for, anyway?

2009May14 misc 010

Risque Accru de Capotage, indeed!

Thirdly, this (also shot while waiting for my ├ępouse at doctor) is the first in a SERIES of images of the crook of my arm.

Be forewarned!

And fourthly, what do you call someone who zooms up the left side of a line of cars waiting to turn right, then noses in near the front of the line? I name them, "line cutter!" Fie on thee!

2009May14 misc 011

Ok, I am SO disappointed the picture did not turn out. These handheld-camera-waving-around-while-piloting-a-vehicle pictures never DO seem to turn out!

Of Plague And Yellow Fever

My neighbor is attempting to breed mosquitos.

It is possible there may have been an inadvertent weedicide/oil spill into the tub, however...

I talked to the guy about this container of water a couple of months ago. He agreed it was bad and said he was going to have a couple of guys clean it out soon. I guess he meant Real Soon Now.

I just read a nifty book titled Fever 1793, by Laurie Halse Anderson. It is based on a historical yellow fever epidemic in Philidelphia. Around 10,000 people died. It makes fine reading in this time of scary pig-diseases!
