Silly Site o' the Day

OMG, how have I never seen Baby Shark before? I must watch more Nationals games. Here's a Hallowe'en version:



You're welcome.

Silly Site o' the Day

This would have been the perfect writing day. I have two essays percolating in my head, one which is kinda fun (for me) and the other kinda gut-wrenching and self-confessional. But I guess I'm just not ready yet. Getting closer, not quite there. Like Hallowe'en, when you have a bunch of hay bales that you simply must use as your creative canvas. I guess some are just readier than others. I'm sure it'll come to me, I still have the muscle memory of how to do it. Just need a bit more mental energy.

Silly Site o' the Day

Well, it wasn't exactly a do-nothing day. Actually I got a lot accomplished. After the usual Saturday morning stuff-do-age routine we went up to White Plains to get me new sneakers (wound up getting exactly the same ones I'm wearing now, only new, and only paying like $75 because I had leftover gift cards), then we drove downtown because I'd punched a sushi place into Waze but it wound up being in the business district so probably no parking, so I decided to do the length of Route 100 (Central Ave or Central Park Ave depending on whether you're closer to Yonkers or White Plains, and so glad we did because we saw more pretty foliage there than on the highways!) back to familiar grounds to grab lunch and do the food shopping. And now I'm home watching the Nationals win again and waiting for the first Yankees game, for which I admit I don't hold out the highest of hopes. Houston is a powerhouse this year. But hey, when you live in a world where people make Pokémon with Nick Cage's face, one never knows.

Silly Site o' the Day

After another busy workday I'm really looking forward to a weekend of doing nothing. Meanwhile, I think Zed is considering a vacation, like these lucky pussycats with their travel selfies.

Silly Site o' the Day

Some New Yorkers will believe anything, so this prank art display commemorating something that never happened is right up their alley.

Silly Site o' the Day

Well, it must be said I like Click Hole in the first place, but with their Cap'n Crunch Slanderfest (via BoingBoing) they've reached a whole new level.

Silly Site o' the Day

So far so good. I have a somewhat leisurely work week ahead of me, and the Yankees are winning in the post-season, which I confess I didn't expect. So life's pretty nice at the moment, nice enough for me to try a Japanese costume generator (via BoingBoing) that I can't even operate. The world, she is passing me by. But it's okay, I'm showered and relaxed...

Silly Site o' the Day

A nice quiet day after all that running about yesterday. Mostly I slept, vegged out in front of the TV watching footie and baseball, and read through tons of comics. Alas, I did not exercise; maybe I need more of these inspirational posters.

Silly Site o' the Day

A great day to head into NJ and help Mom around the house while she recuperates and rests her foot. Did some food shopping as well, although I'm afraid even the Shop-Rite near her doesn't have the special Tilda Swinton brand Doritos...

Silly Site o' the Day

So, have your Hallowe'en costume planned yet? If I did such things I might consider the inflatable T-Rex, that's quite a conversation starter!
