Mr. Lower Back … 3 Years Old!

   

 

A month after I started blogging in 2008 I started my first experiment: a Hair Labo.
I named him Mr. Lower Back because at first he didn’t grow hair on his head … just other odd places.

It’s his 3rd birthday today. He’s looking pretty sad, but he keeps on going for some reason. (I had to re-attach his left eye for the photo)

Most of the people who first read the crap I was writing at the beginning have either stopped blogging or stopped leaving comments. That’s cool: everyone has a life … and hobbies/life/situations change.

Some of the first readers of this blog are still around though; Tony, S. Le, Turkish Prawn, Prairie Flounder, sweetiegirlz, and Pat Coakley to name a few who keep stopping by here … like I’ve got worms and they want to go fishing.

Thanks.

It’s been 3 years plus, but I’m not as sad looking as Mr. Lower Back … so I will continue.

 

note: I have to say that Tony  has sent more people this way than anyone else … for some reason. It’s really quite weird when I try to think about it … which I don’t enough. (I still miss another featured blog that had to do with which way the toiletpaper roll was hanging in the hotels the guy visited)

double note: I should eliminate a lot of the roll call from the blogroll, but I can’t … it’s my nature. I’d be Waiting for Godot … if I was in that play.
(I miss all of you)

triple note:  for everyone else on the blogroll who joined me at a later date … I’m not sure if I found you or you found me … I’m just glad you are still here. It makes the blogging hobby (blobby) very enjoyable.

quadruple note: all my other experiments are long gone or finished. Some were good, some were bad, some were boring … or not to my liking. They are still up at the top of the blog if you’ve got time to kill … and are really bored.
(I’d like to start a new experiment, but my local experiment shop has closed sadly: I’ll keep looking for something new though)

Today #170

Today was like ordering a pizza and calculating only 3 pieces will be mine … then a few people got sick unexpectantly and a few weren’t hungry … Total Score!!!
(this is an analogy: I don’t order pizza when more than 2 people are present)

Out Of Sight, Out Of My Mind

landscapism

 

Nice day,  innit?

Tammy  over at The Tessarae  wondered if I missed anyone while I was off on vacation.

Missed” is a pretty strong word, … so is “strong” or “blue cheese“.

Did I think of any of you at all a little bit even fleetingly on my excursion? No, not a bit.

I didn’t think of S. Le  over at I Feel Unusual  at all … which is unusual.

 

alcoholiday

 I definitely didn’t think of S. Le‘s witty line to Cynical Scribble  about “alcologic“.

difficult to walk on properly

 Tammy   never passed through my mind at all while taking this shot of flowers by a strange bridge thingey.

 

 

tacky tanuki

 Tacky Raccoons   was the furthest thing from my thoughts, although I thought about his cousin the Drunk Tanuki a little.

 

oh so delicious

 Epicurienne   didn’t cross my mind or palate.

 

painting rocks

Bonnie Luria   never crossed my palette or my mind.

 

old building blocked by shadows

 sweetiegirlz   and her old buildings never entered my head once.

 

 from ground zero on a better day

 w1kkp  and her photos of normal from a different angle didn’t enter my head once with this shot looking up into the sky over ground zero in Hiroshima.

a sensitive ear

I must have had amnesia about Buck Frain  while snapping this shot of an art poster outside of … someplace … somewhere.

 

the floating torii that wasn't floating at this time

 razzbuffnik   never floated through my head while taking this shot of the floating torii at Miyajima. It only floats when the tide’s in though I guess.

 

very self explanatory

 Dennis the Vizsla  never entered the doggie door in my head while I snapped this one.

old guns inside ... lots of 'em!

 Turkish Prawn  and Prairie Flounder  were completely absent while looking at the seriously old guns from the 1500’s tucked away inside Matsumoto Castle.

 

wait! there's an encore!!!

I really didn’t think of Doraz  while extremely happy and warm and fuzzy.

 not sure what this is

I didn’t even remember Hot Lard  while taking this one … which is very difficult to do … because they are just rude.

 

stack 'em and rack 'em

I did think about Jim’s Muse  though.

… and Tony  was always a little out of my mind … but I’ve deleted those photos.

where ever I lay my head

I usually just thought about myself the whole entire time.

 

note: I “heart” all of you  in my blogroll … in a manly non-physical way.

bummer of a birthmark

 

double note: I’ve missed out a lot of people on the blogroll. I thought of you constantly, but didn’t take any photos … of  skittles, very strangely organized stuff, funny wordplays, penguins, etc … . (sad face)

triple note: I’m sorry if I haven’t caught up on all your blogs, I will shortly (smiley face)

quadruple note: if I’ve offended anyone by not mentioning them, I haven’t meant to.

Goodbye Smiley Face

As of now I have sworn off the smiley face and all that its cute little visage symbolizes.

No more will it grace my comments.

No more will you know instantly that I am happy.

No more will you know when I’m being sarcastic, taking the piss out of you, being playfully facetious, or dead serious.

No more!  No more!   No More!

My reliance on emoticons has ended. I will endeavour to be as verbose and witty as Falstaff or as minimalist as Butthead on my comments. I will hone my wordsmith skills instead of pushing the “colon” and “right parenthesis” buttons.

I am a lowercase blogger from  this day forth. (except at the beginning of sentences, proper pronouns, and regular punctuation)

I have chosen this lonely path in the hope that in some small way I can be an example for others who have been too afraid to escape the lure and convenience of our happy friend.

There are dark days ahead with no yellow round thing with 2 dots and a curved line to light the way, but this is the path I will walk.

Goodbye smiley face. You will be missed but will always have a special place in my tool bar, although I will not use you.

This is a very emotional moment for me, but I can not really express how I feel.

 

note: To quote James Taylor, “Whenever I see your smiley face, I have to smile myself because I love you”.

double note: this is Single for a Reason‘s doing. 
                        Sweetiegirlz thank you for your support, but it has all been for naught.

triple note: I will definitely be increasing my “haha!” usage.
