Hard-knock life

The weekend before this current one, I went with coworkers to a corn maze in North Georgia. We had to go through and find the photos of pumpkins. If we matched all the pictures to the pictures on the cards we were given at the start, indicated by writing down the name of the pumpkin, we could get ice cream at the end. The maze itself was easily exited, but we did have to go through and find the things. And, you know, get into the fall spirit. Another thing we did was take pictures of kittens and cats a-go-go, such as the one in the photo. The kittens were very tiny and the mother had an eye problem. Still cute.

We also saw some falls for the fall in the Tallulah Gorge state park. I read that it was at one point a top tourist attraction in the South. The visitor center was nice, as was the view and the nice almost-changed leaf-peeping experience. We didn’t find much to eat, however, and went back to the ATL to fill our famished bellies, exhausted from climbing all those freaking stairs down to see the suspension bridge and the water.

Now I’m mulling my Halloween plans (more travel? I must be nutzy) and what I’m going to costume myself as. I posted a bunch of themes on Facebook and have even more now: some kind of two-party political thing with donkey and elephant parts, Mod Squad, Clockwork Orange, lolcat, fairy with giant wins, tooth fairy, The Economy, modernist art, postmodernism, a hippie, Michael jackson, Kanye West, Balloon Girl, Internet Meme-a-palooza (crasher squirrel, Kanye, lolcats, you name it), a computer, an iPhone, a Google phone, the Twitter bird, a fail whale, a scrabble board, a keyboard, a social network, something from Alice in Wonderland, omg I don’t even know what I could be. Mom even suggested the Mona Lisa and I was intrigued at what could be done with that. There is no limit to my imagination, only to my artistic abilities and wherewithal.





Ballin’ it up

Find out how much TRAFFIC I am getting.

Find out how much TRAFFIC I am getting.

Ho ho ho, merry Christmas. Exciting news from 57channel.net. Well, sort of.

I got written up in a French blog as one of “les stars de Twitter” on a French blog. My guess is, based on the text, he is saying that I have a high page rank according to Google despite having only a few followers. I’m not sure, but he might be saying that Twitter is helping my page rank. So yeah, I’m not entirely sure what that means, but it sure is cool!

In other exciting news, I spotted a huge traffic spike on my page on November 27 and couldn’t figure out what the deal was… and then I looked again and realized that everyone is looking for a certain Thanksgiving picture showing a certain Sesame Street bird on a certain dinner table… so yeah, it was pretty crazy to see that my page was a source for that and that there was so much interest in it.

So keep helping me up that page rank! Yeah!
