That's My Vehicle, Pontius!

Webcam Is Down Today

I blame the excessive heat caused by global warming resulting from rampant, uncontrolled commercial interests usurping appropriate government oversight contrary to the will of the people and sense. That's why the webcam is down. Write your congressman.

This is not my wonderful life — I don't have that kind of energy

An excerpt from the day of a friend of mine. Names, places changed to protect, extort the innocent, guilty.

I'm meeting Armando downtown for shopping, then I'm going to go to Sprachett's — 124 Elm St. — for happy hour and to review it, then at 6:30 I'm off to pick up Frank's wife, Marilyn, to go to Norwegietown and have a cocktail at Rochambeau's, a new restaurant I have to write up for Monday, before going to bookgroup at Clarise's. Oh, and I have to meet up with a woman named Betty Merry who I met last night at dinner...to treat myself for my last ever Murty's quiz, I went to Ponio's with a $20 gift card Frida gave me and managed to leave my bookgroup book behind —unfinished, of course — but luckily Betty, who was sitting opposite me in the bar and is also a writer who was there to use her $20 gift card, and I exchanged email addresses, so she retrieved it for me and now I'm hoping she'll email me back today and tell me where to meet up with her to reclaim it.

Toa Maiden Test Drives Red Ruru and Bandolier

The Life On Mars figure spontaneously attached itself during a workspace-sweeping.



Reminds me of a renaissance Madonna and Christ Child.

Jack Stone, We Hardly Knew Ye

A Jack Stone figure, utterly innocent, tries to find his place in the Lego pecking order.

Is This a Bad Thing?

The scenario: Dry summer. Dry yard. Extra-dry patch. Patch is strictly rectangular. Patch corresponds exactly to a slab of concrete 18" under the grass! What is it?!

Fort Worden Driftwood Construct

While Whitney and Stuart started the bonfire, I made this perfectly sound arch. It's about four feet tall and withstood me jumping up and down on it. It survived at least one tide intact.

Makuta Doing a Yul Brynner Impression
