This guy has a collction of rubberstamped money.
I’ve seen more than a few of the Where’s Georges (and write it on more and few myself time to time) but looking at these makes me want to come up with a silly nonsensical one and have a email address on there… see what kinda of mail it gets.
He takes souvenirs and uses them to obscure the real object. Really fun Idea i’ll have to steal.
Ok people, which site do you spend more time on – Flickr or YouTube? Myself I’d have to say Flickr.
Just mainly posting this for those flickr folks who pay attention to my photostream.
I got the letter today from girl at the publisher, a ton of mine made the cut for the pincushions book. Mostly my tiny bottle cap ones (flower basket, violets, eyeballs, lady bug, mushroom), my fried egg with bacon needlecase, the retro one with feet, and the bright flowery ones… I have to write up project sheets and instructions on each, and either draw or photograph pics of the the steps along the way.
I’ll get almost a grand all totaled, not too bad!
My flickr account just paid for itself for a few years since that’s how they found the group, and me. Woo!
Word is Ohio is going blue rouge this election and high ranking republicans have already written it off as a republican loss. I certianly hope that’s true. Anyone I’ve heard (who isn’t on local radio that is) are saying things like they are voting for “anyone with a D after thier name”. God knows our state republican hiearchy certainly hasn’t earned anything other jailtime as of late with the various scandals, corrpution hearings and the like.
The democratic party sunk three signs in my yards last week and my nieghbors across the street gave our yard such a look.
My poor poor baby makes grindy noises that sounds liek a 747 taking off, so we will be getting a new one (maintence plan from DirectTV) for free here soon. As a result, all our season pass info (we dont really save anything long term) has to be put back in.
For those interetsed into what I and Mr man watch, here you go… the following is our entire season pass list, in order. I’ll let you guess which are ours, mine and his. As you can see it’s (to qoute our President) quite an “epileptic list”
(I was just typing them in quickly to keep on hand when the new one comes so caps might be non-existant or random)
Mr. Padilla stands out at Princeton for another reason: He’s an illegal immigrant. And two weeks ago, he did something few people in his shoes ever do. He turned himself in.
You wondering what I’m wondering?
Okay I’ve been calling around AT&T and Sprint and the like looking for a new plan. Looking for non-cable options for all inclusive unlimited local/LD phone plans for Ohio. If you know of one under $50 let me know. Hubby does’nt want to go the Vonage route, but our plan recently got sold to some Alabama idiots and it went up $20 month… we’re outta there.
How to torture a prospective customer (me):
AT&T plays chamber music on hold. NOT some sweeping orchestral symphony – FREAKING CHAMBER MUSIC! Someone kill me! AGHHHH!
Now there is a line of “Quality Apparel Dedicated to the Christian Faith”. They even have a line so you can mark your place on the “Presidential Prayer Team”.
I suppose at less than 30% of the populace behind him, President Stimpy McWillikers could use all the prayers he could get, heh.
Mark the date ya’ll, those that are long time readedrs know I NEVER show pictures of myself (this would be the first). This one is decent. It has a good bit of photoshop work, but not overly so. Tilt and coloration, but most of the work was darkening shadows and brightening highlights… Okay I removed a bag under my eye and highlighted the curls bit. The orginal pic is out of focus and the color is over saturated and was takedn in my bathroom, heh.
Overall, I look far less fat ugly crone I actually am.
Yeah I’ve been quiet, I’m on vacation!
I’m at the big medieval shindig called Pennsic in Pitssburgh-ish PA until this Sunday. We ran 20 minutes into town for dinner and party supplies and got lunch at Panera – who also has a wifi point. Wifi would have been enough reason for me on it’s own. They have a internet shack on site but it’s $20 an hour. I think NOT.
I have taken few pics, but forgot the cable this time so you’ll have to wait till I get back and flickr them.
Anyway, having fun being hot, wet, dry and cold all the same time! No really it IS possible! New tent is holding up well despite two days of light rain and heavy shower.
I might run into town in a another day or two, who knows so keep posted.
“Pennsic Smell”: A finely mixed concotion of cut grass, wood smoke, pipe tobacco, dirt, BO, and that sickly sweet smelling chemical the portapotties get filled with. Surprisingly it’s not too bad all at once.
Pennsic sound at night: leather soles scuffing on gravel and dirt, hushed mumbling, chingly belts and trinkets, semi horm blasts from the highway that runs along side (they think it’s funny at 2 am), cars on the highway, cars ideling or driving on camp roads as people arrive or leave, drums from four directions and in various beats and volumes, poker chips (at least in our camp) – until about 3am. (unless there are belly dancers, then you can add hooting and run it until 4am)
It’s my birthday for 6 more minutes.
Big deal. I have two G4 400’s running OSX 10.3.9 (No, Dave, Tiger has’nt showed YET, I’m worried.)
Both Stargates and Battlestar Galactica start new seasons tonight on Scifi. DO NOT miss them!
I haven’t looked so forward to a Friday might in years.
That’s it. They changed the Coke Song. You know the one from 1971 (I was two) and played every so often when we were all growing up as they’d show it near holidays and junk, the “I’d like to buy the world a Coke” song. That one. THE Coke song. It is such a classic is it it has it’s own page at the Librabry of congress! but that’s not good enough for Coca Cola, who just ruined it.
The line “I’d like to buy the world a Coke, and keep it company” has been changed to – and I’m not joking, those who have seen it can attest this is true – “I’d like to buy the world a Coke, and CHILL WITH IT AWHILE” in the new version now playing on introducing the release of Coke Zero
See for yourself…
