nostalgia

Streets of Rage 2

i suddenly got a yen for old video games one day. i found myself wanting to play donkey kong country and super mario world and other games i used to play back in the day. so i downloaded an SNES emulator. then i remembered a great game we used to play on the sega genesis called streets of rage 2. so i downloaded a genesis emulator. my favorite character is max because he can kill enemies with one swing of a pipe. :c)

lounging daisy reloaded

Daisy Dog

we used to think they thought we were furniture; now we know they do. AGH! i'm trying to find a book named something rotten by jasper fforde--i've been trying to find it for weeks. the library catalogue says it has it: i check the main library. twice. not there. i go to the madison branch. says it's there. not. it's not at the two barnes & nobles in my area, either. but it is at a books-a-million; however, it's a hardcover. the paperback doesn't come out till august. UGH. and i have sinus drainage.

gourd



my grandaddy grows gourds, dries them out, and turns them into houses for purple martins. each year, the gourds take over the fence; and when they get too heavy, he rigs up little "seats" from wooden planks and rope to alleviate the pressure. it's very cute.

train and rocket



the old and the new maybe? the rocket is a full size replica of the Saturn V that carried astronauts to the moon. it's located at the US Space and Rocket Center, home of Space Camp. there probably won't be any more windshield pictures for a while because of the "yellow snow." as i sit here on the deck, i'm watching the pollen collect on my laptop as i type. there's a thin film of it everywhere these spring days.

dishrag



i was bored. this reminds me of my dog biscuit. whenever summer picks him up to torment him, he goes completely limp, like a dishrag. i guess that makes him a limp biscuit.

salt



my friends think i may have a salt deficiency, since i use so much of it on my food. and salt water doesn't phase me. i've even been known to eat salt by itself. in fact, this particular package of salt doesn't exist anymore...
