I owe this to you

Let's play "where's m.lady?!"

(I'll give you a hint, I was really into coordinating and fluorescent colors.)

last call

Jesus and Saint Peter are hanging out at the gates of Heaven. You know, shootin' the shit and what not.

Saint Peter turns to Jesus and says, "hey, J-man, I been here, like a thousand years and I really need to take a leak, can you cover for me?"

And Jesus says, "Dude, I'm the son of God, I think I can cover for a minute."

So Peter runs off, and Jesus takes a look at the questions to ask people before they are let in to Heaven, all nice and listed on Peter's clipboard:

What did you do for work in your life on earth?

Did you have any children?

What do you remember about your children?

So Jesus is hanging out, whistling a little ditty, when this old guy walks up, like really old guy. I'm talking ancient here.

Jesus shakes the guys hand and then looks at the clipboard, says, "Hey there old man, before I can let you in here to my kingdom, I need to ask you a few questions, ahh, let's see here....okay, What did you do for work in your life on earth?"

The old man coughs, and mumbles, "um, I worked with wood."

"Cool," says Jesus, "cool cool, okay, question number two, Did you have any children?"

"Yes," says the old man, "I had one son."

"Right right," says Jesus, "one son, cool cool, now, what do you remember about your son?"

And the old man looks at Jesus, looks with his big blue eyes at Jesus's big brown eyes, looks into his eyes solid and strong and says, "he had nails in his hands and feet."

Jesus drops his pencil, drops the clipboard and grabs the old man's shoulders. With tears all welling up in his eyes, Jesus looks with his big brown eyes into the old man's big blue eyes and says, "Papa?"

And the old man looks at Jesus. Looks with his big blue eyes into Jesus's big brown eyes and says, "Pinocchio?"

More robots

More robots on my robot blog. You should check it out. It's very exciting. It's all robots.

I will post more soon, big news in rejections, reality tv, and a story that will be published sometime soon.

Isn't that exciting?!

no cigars

ah me, I was working on a 365 days photo project. The goal is to take one self-portrait a day for 365 days. Well, wouldn't you know, somewhere around day 280-something, I stopped, and forgot to start up again. Deary me, I feel like a tool.

It was an interesting project to attempt. Stretching my brain to find new ways of perceiving myself. But then, it became a task, and I didn't want to bring my camera with me and I didn't even want to look at my camera and there are only so many pictures that a person can take of their own feet.

Ah, but, whoo whoo!, I started a new blog, not to replace this one, to be a companion to it, I suppose. It is called "I draw robots" and I assume you know what to expect.

I got a rejection the other day for a story that had already been rejected by the same journal. They rejected me twice.

Even when I don't try, they say "no."

I think, for a while, I will focus on making paper flowers.
