Be thankful you didn't get caught on that Carnival cruise where the shit piled up.

Still giggling about the guy who said it was as if he were "camping".

Some euphemisms need to be tucked away in your backpack.

St. Paul man clears the first snow wearing shorts.

"Falcon Heights resident Josh Fuhrman clears snow from a neighbor's driveway Saturday afternoon, November 13, 2010 with his brand new snowblower. "It's not cold enough to wear pants," said Fuhrman, who said he typically starts wearing long pants in January."

A Dido and Aeneas moment?

Seriously, nice pics, movie quality shots.

WV "eveness" Her clothing soaked, Meade saw Althouse in her Eveness and was enchanted.

Woods And Water

Hold your breath,
Don't break the spell,
Nor heavy tread
Wherein fairies dwell.

Anyone else ready for "Jenna Jameson's Shocking New Video" to run its course?

Alex said...

Would like to know from Althouse:

* what camera does she use
* what settings to get these landscape pics

Looks like a perfect place for turtles and dead trees.
No wonder Kettle Moraine is garage (the commenters)'s favorite park.

Was that Zombie enough?

You didn't mistake any critters out there for Stanley, did you? You know, Toledo, Oh-Three? I hope you haven't made that mistake more than once.

The woman needs to plug Dow-Corning products,

I saw an obese man in the subway yesterday wearing shorts, T shirt and a fall jacket..

I just hope I never get whatever it is that makes people do things like that.

BTW - at the 42nd St Port Authority Bus Term I notice more police than usual posting signs warning they would be randomly checking bags and backpacks.

Something is up apparently.

What is UP with Wisconsin scoring 83 points like that??

Darkness falls with a clunk lately.

In eastern Ohio tonight, we ran into a strange lighting situation when we walked into a newer Walmart to buy travel supplies. We entered from a dark parking lot and as we stood in the welcome area both of us felt as if we couldn't see clearly. We rubbed our eyes, and took off our glasses, and stood there feeling woozy, blinking and wondering what was happening. The sensation eased after a minute or two, but we were both affected at the same time in the same way. We've not encountered this phenomena before, and wondered if it had to do with some kind of new lighting being used?

"State Forest"? How dare the government own land! Just who does it think it is! Does it know how BIG and INTRUSIVE this makes it!!!

Pogo said...

Oh great, Ritmo has a new name.

Big Gov't Trickling Down on You said...

You only need to get all wet over it if you like standing in the way, Pogo. ;-)

But you always were such a wet blanket.

Anyways, glad to know you like it!

Excuse me but those pictures lead me to want to put gun in my mouth. Oh. I don't have a gun. Does anyone have enough rope so I can hang myself.

Really your personal experience of nature doesn't always translate well to some of us.

Care to see some shrimp hushpuppy type things with shredded carrot in 'em?

beautiful bog

Evocative landscapes. Beautifully melancholy, gorgeously gloomy.

I think I saw that scenery in the second picture in one of the Lord of the Rings movies, only there were dead elves in the water...

A week from this Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. That means I get to break out the purple dress shirt of doom and drive the women around here crazy again. I can't wait to see what happens this year.

Plus it's been a while since I've been randomly petted by strange women. It has occurred to me that my wearing this shirt, knowing the effect it has on women, is almost certainly objectively sinful. But it seems to me it's at worst a venial sin and I go to confession often anyway.

Ann Althouse said...

It's not a bog. It's a kettle.

Yes, Dave, it's the simple things in life. :)
