mixed up weekend

sense :: taste // french toast

Quite an interesting weekend. Shopping for cars that didn’t turn out horrifically well (but I covered that elsewhere) but in the end I’ll have my way, and Sunday was pretty much a lounging around and relaxing kind of day. Today’s been entertaining and educational so far, although I’m kind of tired (not much sleep last night) and would love to be home and in bed.

Even so, here I am, doing the regular Monday thing. Here’s to waiting for the day to be over.

In news, apparently some incredibly paranoid and silly folks in a small town call the cops on a pair of teenagers who make some Super Mario power-up boxes and put them around town, afraid that they’re bombs or something.

Wow. The terrorists really have won. I don’t believe the county is actually trying to press charges against the girls because they’re too culturally ignorant to understand the significance of the big golden boxes with a question mark on them. Seriously-if someone were going to plant a bomb, something tells me they wouldn’t wrap it in gold paper and spray-paint a question mark on it. This is real life, not Looney Toons.

Wired has a gallery of Apple’s most rabid fans, including folk with tattoos and whatnot. Don’t get me wrong, I love Apple and all, and I definitely love my MacBook Pro, but wow. Color me amazed.

And speaking of color, here’s a dining room table that might distract attention away from your meal. Impressive; but I’ll bet the electric bill will be pretty hefty if you own one of those.

    O_O That dining room table is SO PRETTY.


    Not that I’m attracted to shiny, colourful things. Not at all…

    Two sad cultural statements here. That a priest/church secretary would be so terrified of a package left on the front steps is also a sign of the times. I don’t entirely fault them, there. I can imagine a Planned Parenthood office doing the same thing. How the whole prank got so out of hand that the county considered pressing charges . . . puhleeeez.

    I love the table, too. It would be fun to make a Chinese dining style table with a Lazy Susan center that uses Tireflys.

    @raevyn: It is pretty, isn’t it? ^_^

    @pastilla: I agree-long are we from the days when a basket can appear on the door of a church and the priest will look inside before calling the bomb squad. But sadly, I’m afraid we’re long from the days when someone would trust a priest with a baby in a basket. Oh how the times have changed; although I suppose I can’t remember anything else.

    I like your ideas! Sounds like that would definitely be a fun project for one of the old tables we have lying around here….
