The Sunday Evening Post

Crazy week.
We barely had enough time to keep our heads above water, much less document the moments between.
We ended up with one dozen salvageable pics.
Hopefully, I can intersperse them with creative fluff.

My son is all into Japanese candy, so he photographs it prior to eating it, which turns out to be exactly what a large percentage of Japanese young people do, too.
He recently forwarded an article to me about sapoku, or Japanese samurai ritual suicide.
Should I be concerned?

The two most famous people from Delaware are Joe Flacco and Joe Biden.
Without pointing any fingers, I am letting you know that one those Joes creeps me out.
And after seeing this, turns out I am not the only one.

M is quickly becoming the cupcake maestro.  He now has reusable cupcake wrappers made of silicon with fortune cookie-like sayings at the bottom.

Here is his new creation.  The salted caramel chocolate chunk.
I tell myself I won't eat any of it, but in reality I will and then will feel super guilty about it for the next three days.

Everyone has their moment of zen.  I can usually find mine in the aisles of libraries or book stores.  I lose all concept of time when occupied with a book.

The find of the week was Patton Oswald's new thread.  I am uber-cheap, so I will have to wait until I get it from the library which will probably take a solid month.  There is one copy in the state system.

J and I have been experimenting with low-carb eating, with some decent results.  I think we are both down ten pounds.  I always joke that I am trying to get down to 120 lbs and she always replies that her target is 72.
What great fun have we.

My son captured this photo and immediately showed it to me.  My brother and I still give out the Metal Gear Solid Game Over cry to this day.  It's always fun to get the inside joke.

Do you remember back in the '70s when all of the science fiction movies had picture phones in the future?  
Turns out they were right.
All the young ones are doing it.

A friend of mine showed off the beginnings of a tattoo.  This is the result of 16 hours of work.

Three red fish on ice.
Red snappers.
How do you claim a name like that?

Sometimes, this is how I feel.
Just a lonely alien, looking at the world from the outside-
in my giant pancake flying saucer.

Have a good week.

  1. Isn't Browse About Books a good bookstore? I should go there more often. I love to read but I order all my books from I have a feeling I'm missing an experience that only a bookstore can offer.
