Loading Dock Tree

Tree By Loading Dock

I've been walking in to work (and home again) as much as possible. When I do, I enter the building through the loading dock, where this little tree lives.

Puke Green

West

Puke Green Flannel

I found a puke green flannel shirt at Goodwill. I love this color. It uploaded next to a photo I took at work of the western horizon, and I think the two images go nicely together.

Because I needed more books, oh yes, I did.

Reflections

Reflection

I walk by the IU art museum when I go to the public library, which I did today. I love the way the sky and nearby buildings are reflected in the windows. Thank you, I. M. Pei.

Advice from the Graduate Carrels

Graduate Carrel 7E, Herman B Wells Library
Graduate Carrel 7E, Herman B Wells Library

You can choose to blame
your circumstance on fate
or bad luck or bad choices
or you can choose to fight back.
Things aren't always going to be
fair in the real world. That's just
the way it is. But for the most
part, you get what you give.
The rest of your life is being
shaped right now with the
dreams you chase, the choices
you make and the person
you decide to be.
The rest of your life is a
long time and it starts
right now.

Dudevertising


Drinking Diet Coke will make your dick fall off. TRUFAX. So Coke created macho Coke Zero for manly men. And now they're advertising it with heavily gendered crap like this. 

Gross.  I can't even envision a scenario wherein I would willingly share my pop with bros or grillmasters.

Surprise!

Raindrops on Surprise Lily

It has rained and rained and rained. The garden is happy, but I'm getting a little tired of it.

Sunflower

Raindrops on Sunflower

The thing that I thought was a sunflower was clearly not a sunflower, onna counta it had a cone in the center and did not get any bigger. It was a Black-eyed Susan. Duh. I forgot I'd planted them a couple of years ago, and they do look an awful lot like sunflowers when they first form buds and bloom. THIS is an actual sunflower, though. With raindrops.
