May 14, 2012

Somerville started dating bicycles in 2011, but the relationship already seems to have commitment problems:

What happens in 2016?

The woman on the next billboard looks doubtful

Ironically, the original sleeve and sticker is what makes it worth $6.99

It's never too soon

A bit more than a third the calories of regular Budweiser, but almost half the alcohol!

I wonder how many cats this person has?

Close-up. D'oh!

...and last but not least, Phoebe!


Box rides!

September 2, 2011

Felix loves box rides (or laundry-hamper rides, or bag rides…).   Whenever we get a box in the mail, Felix jumps in as soon as it’s empty.

Box ride, pleeease?

I don't "feel great" yet

Next time, order larger shoes

Wheeee!

Can we do it again?


You Need Big Props for Security Theater

April 18, 2011

Giant backpackThis gigantic backpack recently appeared at the Alewife MBTA station .  It’s part of the “If you see something, say something” campaign sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security and the T.

I’d be very interested to hear of any terrorist acts actually brought to light by the campaign, but I suspect all it really is is another way for the government’s fear machine to justify its ongoing existence.  However, the program may not be a complete waste of taxpayer money.  Maybe more lost items end up turned in and returned to their owners?

At least this display is entertaining, and it’s nowhere near as dangerous as the security theater production I saw on New Year’s Eve.

And now there’s finally a backpack I can use if I ever want to carry a king-sized bed when we go camping.


Bunny Day!

April 15, 2011

This morning was the first Bunny Day of spring!  Traditionally, a bunny sighting is a “hare-binger” of a good day.

Bunny Day!

Bunny Day ended almost immediately, chased out by Turkey Day!

Turkey Day!
