Hey, folks, as of my usual post time I am, as we used to say in the days of World of Warcraft, AFK–Away From Keyboard. I’ll be traveling home from a weekend away and will almost certainly not feel like posting when I get home. So, here’s an actual advance post of things that caught my eye, either this past week, or some time in the not-so-distant past.
Thing One: Giant Jeff Goldblum statue in London.
Did you see this? It turned up last week. And all I can say is, “Why?”
I have to say, I do find it amusing how he seems to float in the air, like it’s not just a giant Jeff Goldblum statue, but it’s the ghost of a giant Jeff Goldblum statue. I suppose I shouldn’t criticize. On Long Island, where I grew up, we have The Big Duck.
Thing Two: Do we need this level of specificity?
I may have posted this one another time, or I may be confusing this blog with my personal Facebook page. Isn’t “Apple” the default flavor on Applesauce? Like, if it’s not labeled, you just assume it’s apple?
Thing Three: Escape hatch
One of my favorite features on newer cars. Just in case the mob tosses you in the trunk with the intent of putting you in a shallow grave somewhere upstate.
I especially like the way the person is jauntily running away from the car.
That’s all for me for now. Have you ever seen things that don’t seem strictly necessary?
