Quietly standing by myself after bible study and taking in bits and pieces of everyone's conversations felt more beneficial to me than the sermon I listened to this past Sunday. God works in amazing ways we can not even begin to understand and I'm learning that over and over again all the time.
While at work today, I've been doing some Google image searches for retro things to use as reference for a set of Valentine's Day cards I'm working on. Among some rather great imagery, I've also stumbled upon entire original Planet of the Apes coloring books and activity books in PDF form (you better believe I'm gonna print one out) and this gem here:
The edited ad is actually for the first handheld transistor radio. I remember learning about this (and actually looking at the same ad) a couple years ago in my media history class.
I wanted to have a bed available for my new kitten when he arrives despite the fact that I know many cats choose not to use them. So, instead of purchasing a new one, I dug through my box of odds and ends fabric and put one together in a couple hours. I call it "the nest".
Speaking of Pollock, I watched a documentary a couple months ago called Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock? Hilarious. Just the kind of quirky characters I love to stumble upon in documentaries. The film captures the story of a woman who buys a painting at a thrift store and then becomes convinced that it's an original Pollock. Numerous experts and forensic investigators examine and discuss the piece. Very entertaining and interesting.
I've posted my first comic over at The Comic Commitment. It's a collective comic blog that, so far, includes comics done by past and present ladies from the Cleveland Institute of Art. Two of which I graduated with. A lovely bunch of images and personal snippets.
I have a hamster I would love to Re-home for $350.00 cage and all wow what a deal wont last I have a chidoodlelaboterrier comes with leash that I would let go for the low low low price of $1,500.00 to ensure a good home. I would also like to adopt for free any animal I could get my hands on. We will offer a forever loving home (somewhere). Please I am desperate. I also have a couple of sick animals that I really don¢t want to waste any money on at the vet so could someone out there give me some advice on how to cure them or be willing to pay the vet bill. I also need food for them because I didn¢t know when I got them I would have to feed them on the regular bases. Please help me I am so desperate. I cannot even feed my dog so my kids have to go. Can anyone pick them up (my kids) tonight by midnight? I will send all their jammies and everything. Even some snacks so they will be quiet. Why does my ad keep getting flagged.
(At first I thought this person was absolutely crazy for trying to re-home a hamster for $350. Then I just started laughing.)
For the first time in my life I can say that I am genuinely content, pleased, encouraged, and excited about the future of our country. I am so impressed at the sense of unity that this election has created in this country. Regardless of who they voted for, just the fact that there was an overwhelming amount of new voters because people were realized how important the election truly was is an amazing thing.
(May I also say that Ohio looks very good in blue!)
