More Randomness Around Town...

More photos to share......

I think this picture is one of the coolest sky pictures ever. It's even more cool that I took it myself and with the camera that my brother gave me for Christmas.
YaY me!

I just love a restaurant with a sense of humor. Of course that I also love Jimmy John's Unwich doesn't hurt either. :)

My brother is the pancake king, but these very tasty 'cakes at Weck's won by a technical knock-out.

Recently the aforementioned pancake king went to Chicago on a business trip and sent me this picture from the Field Museum. He named her Sally. I want to know how he knows it's a girl. On second thought, maybe I don't.

Speaking of pictures sent to my phone, a friend sent this one to me last week while we were out. Then he was amazed that I had never seen a urinal before. Why on Earth would I go into the men's bathroom? Most guys are such bad shots that they should paint targets on the urinal cakes to see if that helps. BTW, I'm not really sure what this picture says about my friend's feelings for me. Again, maybe I don't want to know.

It is so hot here right now that I actually got wistful while looking at this picture I took of my car during my first week in Dallas. It snowed twice that week and this week we'll be lucky to see two days below 100.

And finally under the heading of jobs that I NEVER want to have......

In the space between the building I work in and the one next to us there are several trees. Apparently they needed trimming.

Look carefully as this guy actually cuts the branch he's standing on.

Then gently lowers it to the ground.

Actually, it didn't look so gentle and it scored a collective gasp from the crowd he'd drawn in the lobby of our building. Personally, I think he's nuts.

Well that's it for now. Thanks for stopping by!

Make Your Own Band...

Months and months ago, Kwizgiver posted this fun activity. For some reason, I couldn't get step #2 to work and then it was move time. Now that my compy is set up and I can access what I started, I've been able to finish it. So here is my band & their first album. Enjoy! :D

Band: iseda station
Album: the destinies of stars

Now here are the instructions:

You are about to have your own band’s CD cover. Follow these directions to the letter. Now, go to these links and start creating your totally awesome band cover!

The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4. Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together, and post the result as a comment in this post. Also, post it in your own blog and see what other people can come up with!

Give it a try. It really was fun! :)

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!!!

Well, it's official. My Mommy is coming to visit at Thanksgiving. :) :) :)

I haven't seen her since August 2004. Her & my Pops moved to West Virginia to be near his family and to get Mommy out of the heat & all the stuff she's allergic to. I went from seeing her once or twice a week to not seeing her at all. I may be 40, but I'm a Momma's Girl. :D

She'll be here for just over a week. Now we've even got a new place with enough room for her. All we need is a place for her to sleep.

We were planning on getting a sleeper sofa to go in our loft. Then we ran across a bargain thanks to our neighbor. For a couple of hundred dollars we are going to be buying this luxurious, comfortable bed for our dearest Mommy......

What do you think, Mommy? Doesn't it look like the most comfortable bed you've ever seen? And those really nice neighbors are going to throw in the cowboy & indian sheets for free. Aren't you excited?!

See you soon, Mommy. We love you!!!
