In which I speak of many diverse and interesting matters

Mr Sun is on a serious roll lately y'all. I mean, deadly serious. If you've got a geek-lovin' bone in your whole entire body somewhere, even if it's just the tiny little stapes or incus or malleus or hyoid, go, read, and be amazed at the love shown to the world by His Solarness.
.
Just the article on the sexy building materials ALONE is worth the click.
.
=======================
.
Never, ever, and I mean NEVER, allow me to watch "
Finding Neverland" just before bed again.
.
Ever.
.
I'm serious.
.
The crying (OK, loud gasping sobbing, I'm not ashamed to admit it) brought about by the last 20 minutes of that film, followed by 7 hours of stuporous recumbency, translates DIRECTLY into predawn eye puffage of such proportion that all the makeup in the world only suceeds in making me look Asian.
.
Which, incidentally, is NOT such a very good look for a freckly German/Irish girl.
.
======================
.
Hey folks, you are SO missing out on your chance to "amend that tat." I got a nice idea from
DebR a couple of days ago, but since then, NOTHING!
.
What is wrong with you people that you can't come up with some idea, no matter how small or off-the-wall, of how to add more color and vibrancy to my middle-aged cankles?
.
So, again, a plea from me to you to step up to the plate and run out a few ideas (perhaps with illustrations!) of how I should amend the tat. Otherwise I shall be left to my own devices, which may include the addition of
drippy blood schmears or a zipper effect that looks like you can see my bones and tendons or somesuch oddity.
.
And really, do you want THAT on your conscience?
.
====================
.
Today at school, in the third grade it's either "big snack day" or "board game day." Yes, these last few precious school dayz are FILLED with learning opportunities of staggering import, aren't they?
.
Why do they even BOTHER making the kids come in at all?
.
Wait, tomorrow, in the 5th grade, they're not. They're all going ROLLER SKATING!!!
.
I do so wish I were a kid again.

That zipper effect fascinates me, in an oogie sort of way. :-)

Q said...

My mother happened to be visiting us when we rented that movie. As the credits rolled, her only comment was "Hmm. Awfully well-fed-looking for someone who is supposed to by dying of tuberculosis."

Not that I've ever seen someone with TB, so there's not much I can add!

tiff said...

DebR - me too. This is why I need other suggestions.

Q - Good grief - as soonas they get to the part where the play is being put on at the Maurier's house, I start crying every.single.time. Your mom is made of stern, stern stuff.

You are SUCH a girl

tiff said...

Hyp - I know, and it's a constant source of amazement to me.

Chelle said...

Hey Tiff? don't watch Finding Neverland ever, ever again!! (how often do you need the reminder?

mr. schprock said...

Now you have me interested in Finding Neverland. You remind me of how I always get dust or something caught in my eyes at the end of It's a Wonderful Life.

How about some tasteful clouds in the background of your tattoo?

tiff said...

MMM3 - reminders are useful on a fairly regular basis. I'm nothing if not forgetful. Plus, the Johnny Depp factor always reels me in.

Mr S - Yes, it's shocking how much dust there is in my house during certain portions of films...
Clouds? Hadn't thought of that. THanks!!

Wordnerd said...

Never saw Finding Neverland. But I'm in need of a good cry, so I'm there.

Did I read this right? Your kids are still in school?????

tiff said...

Yes. THey. Are. Year round is pretty cool, but no LOOONG summer vacations.

Tracy Lynn said...

Have you thought of Heraldic lions or dragons? They would look good, done in dark colors, because the celtic and germanic are very close stylisticly.

tiff said...

tl - very cool idea!
