Animated tesselations (those MC Escher interlocking-frog-fish-people things) from Japan. (found at boingboing)

I could watch these for ages. I wouldn’t mind this as a background image for a side-bar…. I bet or would dig ’em.

or maybe I’m just sleepy.

I also like these z-cardz thingies… they look cheap and fun for all ages. They’d be great for tabletop gaming props, too, I bet. Very Calvin and Hobbes… dinosaurs and jet planes. $2.50 for a pack of five. Just right! styles out now

Morikami (one of my fave places to skip high school) redid the website… one day I’m going to head back there, and walk the gardens (holding hands with my sweeite), take all sorts of pictures…rest in the shade with koi swimming nearby, have a little picnic. MmMmM… good dream fodder.

Ok, bedtime for Scotto and the Newt.

Sweet Dreams, dear journal.

Grodd! You’re under arrest for crimes against Gorilla City.

I want to be the diplomat to Gorilla City! I need a tinfoil hat and a power ring first, though.

I am weary, once again. Kevin had to put put fires from Fort Lauderdale to West Palm… I got to deal with electrical problems all day. Slowed me down quite a lot, didn’t get much programming done. I’ll probably hit the sack in another hour or so. Just tucked my sweetie in, and I’m happy that she’s feeling good. I look forward to her busy-busy time (and my own!) mellowing soon.

Congratulations, Emma and crew!

The Chopping Block…one-panel cartoons. Dark and scribbly, with a hint of irony and a whimsical bouquet. Vaguely reminiscient of Edward Gorey, but it’s no Gashleycrumb Tinies.

I’ve been told that I sound like a little boy on the phone by two lj-ers now… I suppose I overcompensate for my gorilloid appearance. Also, they’re nice folks, so I put on my “sweetie-voice”.

I’m thinking good thoughts for , and hope her baby comes today with a minimum of stress and delay. She’s got contractions 4 min apart, and back labor as we speak… out li’l bebe! out to see the world! Epidural is started.

Newt’s stalking something by the doorjamb…I can’t see it, but he’s staring intently at the crease there. I suspect he’s just being a looney.

Neurologist appointment 5/2, first thing in the morning… a battery of tests to focus on preventing my back hurting like it did a while back again. That just was the worst, and if I never feel that pain again, it’ll be too soon.
