Summertime & The Livin' is Easy

 I don't always "translate" my favorite tunes into "french" while I drive...

But when I do, it's pretty awesome.

And many more...

Dear younger me,
I'm sorry that you didn't have much faith in me when you first imagined us at age 21.
We were just a -tad- too cynical back then, huh?
Anyway, I hope I've done us proud.
May you live all the days of your life.

p.s. Happy Father's Day.

Dylan, my Dylan...

Sorry for the scant postings. Thought I'd share a few visuals and sound bites from my favorite Irishman (Liam Neeson ties with him some days, depending on my mood). <3
Scanning the pictures below you may have recognized him from Shaun of the Dead...but now and forever more I hope you will recognize him for his deadpan hilarity and Irish adorableness.


"What are they really; children? Midget drunks, that's what they are..." 

 "I don't like vegetables. I actually find them morally objectionable, a lot of them."

 "I think that women just have a primeval instinct to make soup, 
which they will try to foist on anybody who looks like a likely candidate."

 "Woman go and get their hair made bullet-proof and get the implants. The silly clothes and the stupid shoes everybody wears now. And they say ”Oh, l enjoy it. l did it for me, you know. l like the fact that it takes me 45 minutes to get in or out of a chair. And l’ve always wanted to look like a prawn who’s being airlifted." lt’s a total lie. That’s not the kind of thing a person does for themselves. You know what l did for me? I had an eclair inside an eclair. That’s the kind of thing you do for yourself." 

And the ever so classic...

 "There's a phenomenon called Irish hair. You can walk into a bar and see four hundred people and they all look like this:"



Thanks for the laughs. ;}

Welcome Little One...

Say hello to my first born.
The first bloom from the first plant I have tended from seed.
Isn't it beautiful? 

I'm half tempted to provide a satirical narrative of little one's 
mundane life to get back at all those people on facebook.

Ah, but revenge is the Lord's business and what revenge 
could be so biting that involved flowers? *smile*

<< happy weekend >>

Such & Such

Trying my idle hands at some doodles...

{Vintage photo I own of a man from 1926 Berlin}

{I gave up getting his exact likeness after a few hours. 
The precision needed is way outside my current skill level. 
Always fun to try though.}

Doesn't do him much justice, I'm afraid. 
Maybe I'll try again further down the road.
When I've had more practice and greater patience.

Give me a place to stand, and I will move the Earth...

I have officially said adieu to higher education math courses & I have only one thing to say:
Praise the Risen Lord.
Surprisingly, this long journey did not end in bitterness.
Could it be that during the long nights spent in frustration and despair, I {gasp} learned to respect the vocation and discipline? 
Serious props to you who are blessed with the mastery of numerical theories; I envy your prowess in this subject.  
If I wasn't so in love with semi-colons and similes myself, I might try my hand at being a math wizard.
As it stand now though, I'll content myself with scribbled mushing on the profundity of a moss patch and leave the lightening speed mental commuting to the experts.

It's how Einstein would have wanted it.
