Total boredom

So, I have an hour and a half before I need to leave for church. I'm ready, except my shoes. Erin will be ready in about 10 minutes, so I have time to kill. So I'm making use of Firefox's "stumble upon" addon.

I've found some interesting pages.

This page of funny military images including this one
This page that lets you paint on a canvas. Now I've never claimed to be an artist, but it was fun. It also lets you "play" through the painting, so after you're done you can click and it'll repaint it for you from the beginning (graciously omitting anything you've "undone") So here's my pretty little scene

A cardboard office

This one shows the scale of our world and other celestial bodies.

The People's Mario: a little gory (the enemies bleed) but funny still.

The 7 best foods we never eat. It was actually a really interesting look at things I should try eating.

The photography of Nick Brandt. I love how surreal he makes the photos look. And of course, a picture of a giraffe can win me over most of the time. lol
A Wikipedia list of "unusual deaths." These include the 458BC death of the writer Aeschylus, who died when an eagle dropped a tortoise on his head, thinking it a rock; the 1478 execution of George Plantagenet, Duke of Clarence by drowning in a barrel of Malmsey wine (at his own request) and the 1983 death of author Tennessee Williams, when he choked to death on the cap of a bottle of eyedrops. Apparently he would routinely put the cap in his mouth and then lean back to put the eyedrops in his eyes, and accidentally swallowed it.

A doggy window for your wooden fence. lol
And I love this picture. I want to hug a tiger!!
18 uses for vodka, since you're not drinking it. ;)


And an interesting little scifi short story. "They're Made of Meat"

And lastly, the photographic journal of a man caring for his elderly father. It made me really think of how important my family is to me, and how much I treasure my memories.

So, I don't usually spend time like this, but it was kind of fun! Thanks for spending an hour with me.

We were flying just last week and I saw that doggy window in the sky mall magazine! I thought it was pretty funny then, there are some interesting sites on here I might just have to check them out when I get some time!

Thanks for sharing. Love the doggy window and the panda photo.
Love your blog.

Why would anyone drink vodka? It kills bees, bacteria and mold, is a stain remover and random other things. you don't see people drinking other cleaning products or insect killing products!
