Squint your eyes and look closer. I'm not between you and your ambitions. I am a poster girl with no poster. I am thirty-two flavors and then some. And I'm beyond your peripheral vision, so you might want to turn your head. 'Cuz some day you are gonna get hungry, and eat all of the words you just said. ~ Ani Difranco
Gib: Same thing happened to me with wife number two, 'member? I have no idea nothing's going on, right? I come home one day and the house is empty, and I mean completely empty. She even took the ice cube trays out of the freezer. What kind of a sick bitch takes the ICE CUBE trays out of the FREEZER? ~ Memorable quotes from True Lies (1994)
It was market day for Market Day!
Cam's High School Band uses Market Day as a fundraiser. I try to make a purchase each month to support the program ... and to fill our bellies!
"What am I seeing? What's wrong with me? Am I crazy? Am I crazy? Am I crazy?"
~ Broadcaster Graham McNamee, calling the infamous wrong way run by Roy Riegels in the 1929 Rose Bowl
Because January 1st fell on a Sunday this year, and God forbid we disturb the NFL on Sunday, the Rose Bowl is being played today ... during the day ... and I was working!
Thanks to a little help from my friends, I was able to find a live stream of the game so that I could watch from work ... during my breaks of course ... which I saved up until the end of the day so that I could watch the game.
The time will come when people will travel in stages moved by steam engines from one city to another, almost as fast as birds can fly, 15 or 20 miles an hour.... A carriage will start from Washington in the morning, the passengers will breakfast at Baltimore, dine at Philadelphia, and sup in New York the same day.... Engines will drive boats 10 or 12 miles an hour, and there will be hundreds of steamers running on the Mississippi, as predicted years ago.
~ Oliver Evans, 1800
One of the things I wanted to do differently with my Project 365 366 this year was to repeat a photo monthly.
I remembered Sujomi doing this in 2010 with a tree. I was fascinated watching the changes each month.
So, the first of each month I'll give you this same view. Hopefully it will cooperate and change with the seasons (and no, we shouldn't have that green grass on January 1st).
