Not meaning to be creepy but curious - were you at the capitol hill / olive starbucks this morning?
Hey anon! Nope, wasn’t me. I try and make it a point of not being seen in a Starbucks, although it does happen from time to time. I’ve been north of the city all morning and afternoon.
Thanks for looking out for me, though. I’ll post a current picture to be distributed and printed out on milk cartons and such here in a few.
Don’t go out. Just stay at home. I thought traffic was crazy during Christmas, but what I’ve seen today makes me want to abandon The White Pearl on the side of the road and walk home.
The resurrection of Jesus makes people drive stupid.
Love the keyboard lick that starts this live version. Such a beautiful arrangement all around. One of my faves by him.
Good Morning! I was reading some of my dash from last year, that I missed at the time, and I ...I saw your waffle. I think it was an at-home waffle? What kind of waffle iron do you have?
Well hello there, fellow Waffle Aficionado©® and member of the Waffle Appreciation Society©®!
Here at Helm’s Deep, we take our waffling very seriously. Currently, we are in possession of three (3) waffle irons.
First, our Belgian Waffle Iron:
Next, our straight-up Proctor-Silex square waffle iron:
And finally, our Sunbeam waffle iron with interchangeable plates so we can make waffles shaped like cows and ducks. Because, why not!
Hope this answers your question.
Also, thanks for the likes on those old posts. It was fun seeing them being liked on my activity and going down memory lane.
Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year.
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.
But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)
At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.
Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”
Amen to that, Hugh.
There have been times that I’ve thought the whole idea of the TED Talk had completely jumped the shark. Then I see something like this, leaving Stacie and I wondering why our eyes are so watery and searching the living room for onion-cutting ninjas.
This one kept those sharks at bay. Beautiful.
Why is there not enough nudity in comics?
I think the question you’re asking is why is there not enough nudity in your real life
Bendis throwing some epic shade.
Marry her off to a rich Austrian.
- We’re spending today recovering from a week of birthdays, and making to-do and grocery lists for Easter.
- Stacie’s grandparents are making their way back from their winter in Arizona and will be joining us for Easter. If any of you have been around here for a long time, and are aware of some of the things that have happened with Stacie’s family in the past couple of years, you’ll know I have mixed feelings about this. I’m going to just keep my mouth shut and try to enjoy the day.
- I’m still blown away by the capabilities of the iPhone’s camera, and really happy with the picture of Storie’s Angel Food Cake from last night. Mind you, it’s still no fully manual DSLR, but it can produce some really stellar images under the right conditions.
- We watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty last night, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Not the greatest film of all time, but a decent flick with solid performances, plus some really nice cinematography.
- I’ve been off Facebook for almost 3 days, and don’t miss it at all. So I’ll be on here, Twitter, and Instagram exclusively for the foreseeable future. Ugh…Facebook.
Happy Friday everyone.
