This is the reason you bought this, right?

You really did buy the roadster because the top of a convertible makes a perfect little hammock like bed for a tired kitty. Didn't you??
It is my preferred place to nap.

I'm an excellent napper.

Graph Jam

My newest favorite time wasting website:
Graph Jam: Pop Culture for People in Cubicles

This particular example is the one that gets posted simply because The Princess Bride is one of the best movies EVER.

Summer? Someday (maybe)

I just needed a reminder that there is occasionally blue sky out there. It's been a cold and damp June. We typically say that in Portland, summer doesn't really start till July 5th, but this year it's REALLY not summer yet.

This picture was actually taken in April of 2005 - the same weekend at Cannon Beach that I took the sunset photo in the header. Non Pacific Northwesterners take note - the jackets worn by the people in the photo are typical beachwear for Oregonians.

It was fun to watch this guy - he showed up in the morning and started that watercolor - I really enjoyed watching the progress of the painting throughout the day.

Flickr Photo Meme

I love how images can say so much. I've been playing with this photo meme this morning. I found it on Sheri's blog. She, in turn found it at Bookpusher. It takes some time, but the results are fun.

The concept:

a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd’s mosaic maker.

The Questions:
1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One Word to describe you.
12. Your flickr name - Or online handle.

Here's my resulting mosaic:

Some things just don't fit

Another blog? Yes, another blog.

I've already got Blogging My Books - which I really try to keep strictly about books and reading.

Then there's The Adventures of Pirate Bendy - which is pure silliness from the viewpoint of a yellow piece of plastic.

Let's not forget Stuff I Made - which has been woefully neglected (mostly becuase I haven't been making stuff).

So where do I put all that other stuff running around in my brain and all those other pictures that don't have a pirate in them?

Here be the place.

Stay tuned

and I'm sure Howie is going to help because "Helpin's what Howie's do best!"
