I saw these short films by Mitchell Rose mentioned in the NYTimes. 'Modern Daydreams2:Unleashed' is great as well as the one with the John Deere excavator. If you're having a Walter Mitty moment, then watch one of these.
All you pirate knitters reminded me of Thomas Dolby("Good Heavens, Miss Sakamoto--you're beautiful!"). Huh? You know..."Europa and the Pirate Twins." Here are the lyrics . Kinda depressing but has all that 80's techno-angst that I soaked up in college...maybe a little too much. The other afternoon I was discipline patrol during Read-Aloud in Tex's class. While I prowled around hissing 'SIT!' at various miscreants, the other mother read a book to the kids. She sounded like Gigdget on speed...I shudder to think how many rpms she starts up with in the mornings.
This next item is what happened when I plugged in my original name. Yep, Mary Eloise. My mother was dearly hoping for a sweet pensive creature and instead got a clone in some respects. I grew up with a mother named 'Tiny Batts.' No lie. All of Ft. Worth knew her as such AND she was 5'9. I am not making this up. Now, connect the dots and you get 'Mary Batts,' as in happy little bloodsucking mammals. Does this explain a few things?
The grapes got me. Have fun y'all!
- Mary Eloise became extinct in England in 1486.
- Mary Eloise is picked, sorted and packed entirely in the field.
- It is impossible to fold Mary Eloise more than seven times.
- Cats use their Mary Eloise to test whether a space is large enough for them to fit through.
- Mary Eloise has three eyelids.
- Mary Eloise is physically incapable of sticking her tongue out.
- The blood of mammals is red, the blood of insects is yellow, and the blood of Mary Eloise is blue.
- Mary Eloise can clean her ears with her tongue, which is over thirty-nine inches long.
- Mary Eloise is incapable of sleep!
- Grapes explode if you put them inside Mary Eloise.
