Nardwuar is my new hero

I think "A Grand Day Out" is still my favourite Wallace and Gromit animation.. I love cheese.. and the moon. So it's pretty much an inevitability that it would be a hit with me..
Shame I can't see the night sky as well here as I used to be at home. But the moon did make a nice appearance over the mountains.. and it looked so cheesey and yum.
Chas likes cheese too.. poor Morph

Called in sick today, went to the chemist, came back home...
Found this (Exhibit A):
Found this (Exhibit A):
and this (Exhibit B):
It is unclear whether the motive was good or bad... was she trying to:
a. Save money on a Santa beard (note the dough drops in whiskers),
b. Mimic Oscar and make some bread (albeit carpet-bread),
c. Make me laugh (in an attempt to cheer me up),
d. All of the above, but really just being bad?
Jury is out.

I love frost.. we don't see as much of it here as in Ireland. It makes such pretty pictures outlining the natural beauty of leaves and stuff. I took this picture on my new phone. The resolution doesn't seem to be as good as the old phone, but you get the idea.

Seasonal decorations are quite enjoyable in the context of their particular time of the year. It always makes me a little sad to see the pumpkins linger on after October 31st. They just wither and turn brown in the November rain. I was rather pleased to see this "Jacko" lantern though. Quite an artistic homage to the king of the Thriller, and also an amusing play on words.. I am unsure what I think of pumpkins guzzling beer though..
Snow is starting to fall on the mountains... won't be long til I try to once again become a boarder of the snow kind. Hopefully I'll stay up for longer than 5 seconds this time.

So all full of aspirations and great intentions I started this blog almost 12 months ago... I'm amazed I actually persevered with it as long as I did. But inevitably it reached the point where there was a sound of dread in my daily "I have to do my blog" exclamation. I was losing steam.. big time. But after a bit of a hiatus I think I may actually care again.. well at least enough to do somewhat regular posts to finish out the year.
I still can't quite believe it's November already.
Boob.. With love for all mankind. In a shop window akin to Mothercare.
I'm not sure why I took this.. I think there was a skunk but I didn't want to use the flash in case he sprayed me.. I wasn't in the mood for a bath of ketchup.
Or whatever you're supposed to use.
Go for the eyes Leroy
Salmon.. running.. apparently.

So my camera's in the car.. the car is in Salmon Arm, and I am left with a phone camera... and a fancy camera that I'm scared I'll break.. so mainly a phone camera. I am also losing steam in the project.. as you may have guessed, but I WILL try harder.
Til then, there's always drip-paint art on the path...

I have eaten too much.. I feel ill. Note to self: Learn to control yourself at the Indian all-you-can-eat.
I have been living at the current abode for almost 2 years, and I only just saw this stencil yesterday on our rooftop deck.. we live in a one bedroom apartment - not a sprawling country retreat.. I no longer pride myself on my observance.
On another note, this made me laugh. I am now hooked on Glee..

Thank the heavens for the Burlesque girls and their themed dances.. otherwise we would never be exposed to such treats as this lil ditty.
Don't worry Oscar, it's in the music folder and all!
P.s. For anybody who didn't know.. please click on any words highlighted in blue (pretty much anytime I say 'this', 'here' etc... just so's ya know!)

The boys put a lot lot lot of time and effort into their locks over here. This boy sat in front of me on the bus... The front was even more bouffant and spectacular.. but I was trying to be aloof.
His style reminded me of this ad I came across a long time ago.. I think it's the mustardee colour.

So, having been the hostess with the mostess for the past 2 weeks - I have SERIOUSLY neglected my blog addiction to the point where I am almost clean.. This cannot happpen. I am hereby fervently throwing myself back into the arms of the narcotic that is blogging, not to be stirred by anything.. well until I become distracted by something shiny.. or food.
Sometimes I find cool things at the clothes bin, sometimes I find disgusting things, and sometimes I have just been 5 minutes shy of meeting Mr. Bean.. or Penfold from Danger mouse.. this was one of those days..

This is where we stayed for 2 nights and almost 2 days.. one of the best things I've ever seen/done in my life. It was made an all the more enriching experience by the wonderful couple who build and own these fantastic spheres. The building to the far left is a mushroom which houses a composting toilet. The sphere to the right of that is "Eve", that's where our buddies stayed. The one in the centre is "Eryn".. he was ours.
