Very Burton Holmes, Meade-San.

Evocative of the travelogues of the 30s.

(Not sure how a married lady is addressed in Japanese. Somehow, I thought I recalled 'san' was still proper. If I transformed her into a man, mea culpa)

I think the Iliad may be the most affecting thing I've ever read.

I didn't like it in school. Immensely better with age.

No wonder there were a number of accidents at that old bridge! Look how low it is!

I had a fun mitzvah today. Sang "we are the world" with a huge show choir while a love offering was taken up in the audience, for Haiti. We have two Haitian students. The overall show was the final Idol competition for area high schools. It's very well done and they are competing for college scholarships and demo Cds. Some have become professional performers or Nashville songwriters. It's awesomely awesome.

If you're not completely bored with this by now, you should be. I know I am. But on the off-chance you're faintly interested in seeing the meerkat pop-up card in its final form as sent to my brother on Monday, here it is.

". . . . Immensely better with age."

Freeman Hunt, bragging again.

Nice to have you back Freeman.

And old and moldy internet trolling involved the 'san' suffix, young'uns should look it up.

Also, in case anyone wants to see what they aren't going to see from anyone else, here's my extensive tea parties coverage. Compare that summary and the posts further down the page to what you've heard from others.

I haven't seen Darcy around lately.. maybe she was here and I missed her.

Lem said...

That's freaking brilliant chip.. and i don't meant it sarcastically... the time alone you put into it makes it priceless.. not to mention that it's one of a kind.

Nicely done.

BJM said...

@Chip

I hope those who are lucky enough to receive your cards treasure them, I would!

@Lonewacko

Keep digging.

Lem said...

There is something familiar about meerkats.. I used to watch their reality show.

the way they stand on two legs to have a better look around is very compelling.

Lem said...

Graffiti was widely viewed at first as an affront to social norms.. only to be later discovered as art.
While the social norms have prevailed (by sheer will) the art does survive.

Almost Crimes - Broken Social Scene

Lem said...

One could argue that most of our time is spent reintroducing ourselves to social norms..

Why Do You Let Me Stay Here - She & Him

I've been smitten with Zooey ever since The Hitchhiker's Guide.. the fact that there are also recordings of her singing available is a sort of a revelation.

Lem said...

Antisocial behaviour can get out of hand..
warning.. strong visuals.

No Respect - Laura Walsh.

Lem said...

Lets take a look at some Graffiti.. maybe there is a message ;)

Din Daa Daa - George Kranz

Lem said...

There is no denying there is something artistic in Graffiti.. it produced Keith Haring.

Moments In Love - Art Of Noise

The movements in figure skating are graffiti like.

Lem said...

The Graffiti underground (they were very competitive so I don't think you can really say they were a 'community') was a kind of secret society with all the repercussions that go with that..

Your Secret's Safe With Me - Michael Franks

Trooper York said...

There is only one song you need to hear Lem!

Lem said...

I feel like more fluff.

Waltz for Koop - Koop

There are different varieties of graffiti. I've always felt uncomfortable writing the words different & variety together.. seems redundant.. but i hear people say them together all the time.

Lem said...

You and your yankess are going to be taught a lesson this year Trooper.

Trooper York said...

Yeah. We are gonna learn how many ways you can bitch slap an overrated bunch of beantown losers.

Lem said...

At first they try washing the graffiti.. then most just got painted over.

Wash Me Clean - Kd Lang

Lem said...

see you on opening day buddy. we are going to whip you so bad you are going to wish you was a red sox.

Trooper York said...

It's time for drunk-cam at the game!

Lem said...

OK lets see what we have for trooper.

Yankees Choke = Greatest Day in the history of Major League Baseball.

Trooper York said...

Hey Lem here's a who always kept his head about him!

So to speak. Hee.

I have to go back to doing taxes.
Goodnight Pal. See you Opening Day.

Lem said...

Sorry Tropper but it looks like Joe could have used some juice. ;)

Lem said...

picking back up on Graffiti.. (& the red sox bad luck wise)

Born Under a Bad Sign - Albert King

watch the guitar with the cords in reverse order..

Lem said...

Grafitti Bridge its an urban setting..

New Day for You - Basia

I don't know what we did before online weather radar, to estimate when the rain would let up and the dog should go out and pee.

Tradeoffs can now be made and the good-as-it's-going-to-get choice selected.

Dislike of rain is in the Doberman breed standard.

traditionalguy said...

Drudge headlined Stupak's comments on the Democrat Leadership's working to get him to cave in. It reveals the true state of national Democrat politics entertwined with threats of ethics investigations and a daily MSNBC enemy of the people slander machinery. He is a courageous man. He needs some support.

MadisonMan said...

rhhardin, our dog is a picky placer in the rain too. He wanders for many more minutes than necessary to find the place that is just so.

Drives me crazy.

knox said...

Chip, unbelievable. Really.

Both my kids came over to look while I scrolled through, because I was oohing and aahing and laughing. Love the RPG.

Fred4Pres said...

End Times!

kentuckyliz said...

Kudos chip! I shared that on facebook so hopefully a bunch of strange ip's click through to peep.

Lem needs melatonin.
