I’m holding my breath tonight. After months of joy with my new camera, after tons of photos – some good, some bad – after being told repeatedly by people I respect that my photos aren’t complete crap, I took the plunge.

This morning Duane and I stopped by Gathering Grounds – a new coffee shop that just happens to be in the path of our morning commute. While we were waiting for our coffee… our GOOD coffee, that is… I noticed that they have art on the walls. Specifically, paintings done by a local artist. On a whim I looked up the shop’s email address during lunch and, with a little courage and a little much-needed nudge (thank you from the bottom of my heart, you know who you are!) I emailed them and asked if and how I could get a “showing” at the coffee shop.

Man, oh man. It’s not like it’s the Louvre or anything – it’s a freakin’ corner coffee shop for cryin’ out loud!! – but I find that I’m almost nauseous with anticipation.

Fingers crossed!

Very Funny Ads!

I don’t see advertisements on the TV much anymore now that I’ve got a TiVo. (Well, ok, two of them actually, but the other one is His. And yes, we need two separate units. Trust me.) For the most part I’m not missing much – just a bunch of Viagra™ and Pine Sol™ commercials really – but I do enjoy the very best of the funny ones.

That’s where VeryFunnyAds.com comes in. Almost all of the ads gathered here are hysterical – some in a gross way, some in a good old fashioned tickle-your-funny-bone way – and in all fairness, some are very adult, particularly the ones in the “International” category.

You’ve been warned. Now go have a laugh!

The Return Of MadLibs

Think Different

Heres to the furry ones, the eyeballs, the feet, the cars.
The overstuffed pegs in the tacky holes.
The ones who pull things differently.
Theyre not fond of sandwiches, and they have no president for the status quo.
You can run them, cut with them, stand them, eat or type them.
About the only thing you cant do is sit them.
Because they taste fingers.
They test. They shove. They write.
They photograph. They jam. They dance.
They drive the truck forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you sing at an empty hat and see a work of gloves?
Or sit in coat and shiver a lamp thats never been studied?
Or drink at a red wall and see a door on wheels?
We make arms for these kinds of people.
While some may see them as the legs, we see foot.
Because the ones who are mighty enough to change the book, are the ones who sleep.
