Oh, this one stikes too close to home!

Go read this. ...then come back and have a laugh with me!

I mean, minus the bit about "more intelligent, more reflective, more independent, more level-headed, more refined, and more sensitive " (well, heck, the entire bit is delightfully over the top), the entire article is spot on! Shelley is just going to stroke when she reads it!

Oh, my: "Hell is other people at breakfast", "Leave an extrovert alone for two minutes and he will reach for his cell phone", and "This isn't antisocial. It isn't a sign of depression. It does not call for medication. "

Oh, it is going to be just hilarious at home this evening!

Pssst. I'll let you know when she posts on it...

I took a little walk the other night...

I'd left work a bit late, and I wasn't sure if I wanted to blade. ...and the clouds were cool enough on the way home I thought maybe I'd get a layered shot or two for my stock files.

...but then the sunset started getting interesting, so I wandered down the street toward the cul de sac, taking the occasional shot. ...and yes, the sunset started to look worthwhile; so I took my usual sequence, hoping for one shot good enough to use. ...and I tried to get the span of the sky, from the clearing skies in the southwest to the rain starting to fall to the northwest. Yeah, one very cool rain shot...

...and as the sun sank lower, that rain unexpectedly swept up to where I was. ...light at first, then heavier as I headed home; until just a few minutes later, the streets were running heavy. ...and the petals from the trees flowed along with the water.

Hmmmm... I think we'll call that the Text version. ...and I'll work on putting up the GUI version a little later. ...that sound okay to you?

The Thursday Threesome...

Onesome. Big. Anything "big" happen to you lately? Come now, what's the biggest thing in your life these days? Hmmm... I guess it would be somewhere between surviving work and the geekery of getting both of my main workstations back up at home. ...and the next Big Thing will be sleeping in this weekend!

Twosome. Band. I didn't do the band, but I did choir when I was in school. Tell us: what kind of extracurricular activities did YOU do when you were in school? Math club, Science club... Yep, nerdboy here...

Threesome. Music. Our topic of the week is music, so why don't YOU share little about your personal tastes in music. Favorite band? Favorite song? Have a song you love to sing along with but hate to admit it? Now's the time to fess up! My musical tastes are way past eclectic; I'll listen to darned near anything as long as I can hang with the words and the beat. My collection at work and at home runs from rap (Toby Mac) to Tchaikovsky with stops along the way at pop and alternative. Kinda' hard to think of a favorite at the moment, but I'll work on it <g>

Hey! How about you? Let us know, over on The Back Porch...

Come on over and chat!

...but since you asked so nicely.

...and since this is the best we've managed for California Sun here in about thirty-six hours (an eternity for some of us):

How about we expand on yesterday's "Gazania Twins" with a little gallery from Sunday morning?
