If I Only Had a Brain and something to blog about


Happy Thursday (is it really Thursday already?) Yeah I guess it is! Ut oh...I gotta get some things done at work by tomorrow!!! Damn, my work sure interferes with all the other good "stuff" I like to do! ;-)

I have a new digital camera...It's really neat. I'm carrying it with me now in case I see a good pic to portray here...But ...I forgot that the battery needs to be recharged every now and then and it takes a good 3 hours to do that.

So my trek out onto the streets of NYC produced nothing yesterday, nada, squat....and I was really excited about capturing an "only in New York" moment! I went out to "on the streets", and that's where I saw him, handing out brochures, covered in tatoos with piercings all over his face.....oh well, next time.

In the meantime I got nothing!....It's been that sort of week. I hate everything kinda week. Not anyone who reads my blog, mind you, but everyone else...hehe.

"I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me".... Fred Allen

I'll leave you with the following which I "borrowed" from Lizza





Peace

I'm still laughing at the Paul Allen quote, he knew the people I deal with, but not blog with. Love the toon! Thank you! Off to get into more trouble. Have a great day.

I'm so gonna use that long walk quote.

I remember the first time my step-dad had his phone on vibrate in his pocket....laughing...

Hammer said...

Christine and FAZ said...

Now I know what people mean when they say "give me a buzz".

I had so many "only in NY" moments last weekend, and I did not get a single one on film either.

Dan said...

So my trek out onto the streets of NYC produced nothing yesterday

Well at least you got back home with the camera! (i.e., no one stole it). :)

You're in NY? My wife works there. We live 45 minutes away.

lizza said...

I sure hope you find something great to photograph, and that you have fresh batteries when you do!

The comic strips at Cyanide and Happiness are hilarious. The ones over at xkcd.com are great too; some of them are so sappily sweet in a geeky way, like this one and this one.

Don't go putting that mobile phone in strange places! ;-)

My Reflecting Pool said...

Wow, nothing? You should come to the sticks to regain perspective on a "only in NYC" photo op!!!

Funny cartoon.

Odat said...

katherine, I have that quote hanging in my office along with "Have a Nice Day, (Somewhere Else)".
That's too funny about your step dad.

Hammer, well, maybe not.....

Chris and faz....oh yeah...I tell people that all the time ;d

silver, sometimes trying to find that "moment" only distracts you from what's really going on...(How come ya didn't call me?????? lol

dan, the city is NOT that bad!!! geeze....yes I work in NYC and live on an "island" lol....hint: NOT TAHITI! ;-)

Odat said...

Lizza, I went to the Cyanide and Happiness site last nite and I was rolling on the floor..I'll have to check out those other ones...thanks!!! ;-)

pool, it seems when you're looking for it..it never appears...
Peace

A Friend said...

Christine and FAZ said...

Sarge Charlie said...

lala said...

Patti said...

I lead a sheltered life but I got it. I'm surprised Bee needed it explained to her.
