Little Things

My boys always had so many little things, their little action figures, tiny cars, Legos, and Playmobil people. My daughter didn't seem to need quite the amount of paraphenalia.

Millicient was deeply perplexed when the elevator stopped on the 13th floor. There had never been a 13th floor here before.

Juggling all the tasks it takes to prepare and host a swanky soiree requires oodles of finese!

Two very different sorts of geeks-one of the brainiac types and one of the carnival variety. I've discovered a new medium I really enjoy -popsicle sticks.

Mom and Pop were tickled pink when they caught the kiddoes raising a ruckus in the rumpus room practicing the latest dance craze - the Twist.

Thinking Blogger Award

David Somes and his alter ego and compatriot Pickledog have kindly and generously bequeathed upon me the Thinking Blogger award. It makes me feel simultaneously honored and really really smart. So I had to think a lot about five to pass it on to. There is just so much sheer brain wattage out there sizzling and crackling away,difficult to choose.

Cristova - Loontown's denizens consist of an odd assortment of wacked-out beetles,wayfaring misfits and malcontents who ponder and pontificate on life's quandaries and dilemnas. How much quirky zaniness and profundity can exist in one spot? Rummage through Loontown's official archives and discover.

Marjorie Ann Valez - "Majeak Ann's" incomparable work is magically ethereal and brilliantly whimsical. From the upper echelon's of beguiling charm her images delight and intrigue. She has been extremely busy of late illustrating numerous books and it's abundantly obvious why. Ever dazzling!

Valerie Walsh - Valerie Walsh is an accomplished artist who possesses the distinct ability to imbue inanimate objects - especially houses- with compelling personality and appealing whimsicality. One can never look at dwellings quite the same after viewing her artwork.

Carla Kurt - Anonyrrie exhibits a perfect confluence between fanciful imagery and poetic text. Be amazed, enthralled and enchanted. Always pushing the proverbial envelope.

Twisselman - With expertly wrought and multi layered artwork and insightful commentary Twisselman's blog proffers deep insights into the vicissitudes of human and animal existence. But what I really want to say is there's a lot of really good stuff here.

I like to draw pretty ladies with fancy hairdoes. Is that why they hate me so?

I Spy

Hmmm, I spy with my little eye something that looks like eggs hiding in the grass.

When I was a kid and went to get myself some candy the cashier's counter was always surrounded by all these National Inquirer newspapers. Now the National Inquirer of the 60's was not your celebrity rag that it is today, rather it was a horrific blood-soaked gorefest. I recall one headline in particular, "Man Rips Out Own Tongue" and there's this guy holding his tongue and all this blood everywhere. So just to get some candy and comic books one had to proceed through this gauntlet of gore and nightmarish horror. In other words in order to have my puchases totaled up I had to avert my eyes or be totaly grossed out.

I have been asked by the inimitable Majeak Ann to state weird things about myself. I enjoyed reading other people's weirdnesses even though it made me feel really boring comparatively. Such weighty issues must be pondered.

  1. I live in Pennsylvania. I don't know why.

  2. I am 53 years old. How did that happen?

  3. I am the possessor of one of those super gigantic big brains that's exposed at the top of my head. I must disguise it with a wig elsewise my enemies would attempt to capture me and use my hyperintellect for evil.

  4. I love cold weather. I spent the first 2 years of my life in Alaska.

  5. As a teenager once(or honestly more than once) a friend and I just happened to be in a place that got raided by the police. We were released and not charged with anything and didn't tell our parents. Some months later my mother was in the beauty parlour reading a magazine. There was an article about a crime wave in the particular city where we were living and lo and behold my picture was in it and she recognized me. It was the only time my picture has appeared in a major publication.

  6. A long time ago I discovered that if you rub used popsicle sticks on the sidewalk they sharpen to a point. I decorated these popsicle sticks with crayoned designs and sold them door to door. That was along time ago, like when I was 45.

I hope I have proven to be sufficiently weird. Please if they are so inclined would the following personages share the weirdness. I realize this is kind of an old thing now so only do it if it is fun for you. I do not believe at this present time there is a curse attached to nonparticipation.At least I don't think so.


Hepcat could sure play those bongoes. Go Daddy-O!

The material is from my 99 year old Grandma's apron.

I did this around 1983 I think. I made it as part of a little book for my daughter, Emily who was born in '81. The car was a new Toyota Tercel which was a very fancy car for us at the time.
