Play monkey! Play!

9065 - Wednesday, early in the morning, waiting for his ride.

Coughing... but poor BHK is feeling more sick than me. It's certainly chilly this morning, and is expected to be snowy midday today. Quite a change from Monday's balminess.

If anyone out there wants to send me a dvd of swarm of the snakehead, please do! BHK and I have been giggling like goobers for the past week about snakehead fish. If push comes to shove, we may fork over the $17 for the DVD, but I wonder if it'll kill the pure goofiness of the previews. Maybe I can learn to sew, and make a knit snakehead ?

All silliness aside, the snakehead is a serious matter. I can't help it if it's a borderline chupacabra / area 51 / bigfoot sensation here, too.

Handwriting meme - (Forgive Scotto's Messy hand, and blurry-ish cameraphone!)

Answer the following questions in your own handwriting:

1) Name/username.
2) Left or right handed?
3) Favorite letters to write.
4) Least favorite characters to write.
5) Write "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."
6) Tag 5 people.


Random Scotto factoid. When I see a symmetrical "heart shape" I pick out the two semi-circles on top and bottom triangle piece before I see the whole image. That's why I like to draw mine unbalanced, or off-center. I don't know what that means.

BHK and I went to Barnes and Noble last Friday and didn't buy anything despite having a $50 gift card in my pocket. How did that happen?

Flickr user brandonwu got up bright and early to get this image on Monday morning. Lots of "Awakening" images were in the DCist Pool this past long weekend, as it's to be dug up on Wednesday and moved to Prince George's County. EXIF here. - via DCist

I hope to visit it after it was moved... I went there once as a young boy, when I lived in Alexandria.

That reminds me -

Nightmare Playgrounds - most seem to be from Russia and Prague... I wouldn't mind visiting!
These creepy masterpieces of sculpture and landscaping can be found in playgrounds not only in Russia (even though this is where the majority of photos come from) but also in China, East European Countries, and even in the US - anywhere the grass-roots creativity goes bad and the bad taste gets promoted, often unintentionally.
Awesome. More Awesome.
