My local newspaper does a "daily challenge" contest, and today (27 January) there's a picture for question #2, and the guy's wearing a woot T-shirt!!

(the picture for the first question is the sign for the "Spotsylvenia Towne Centre," which used to be called the Spotsylvania Mall until the organized crime boss owners decided that "towne centre" was classier. This mall, er, centre, is about 1.5 miles from Chez 9226!)

Morning all.

My word of the day, via email:

groundling
1: a spectator who stood in the pit of an Elizabethan theater *2: a person of unsophisticated taste
*The movie reviewer blasted the new romantic comedy, calling it “a raunchy, lowbrow romp guaranteed to appeal to no one but the groundlings.”


My son and I must be groundlings. We love lowbrow comedy.

not just inconceivable, but also quite weirdly, someone has voted what looks like 20 votes for my 2 designs and Laura's design this morning. so we sit there, in the hotness, getting no more votes, because no-one is getting any votes at 9:30 AM, looking like I'm cheating by voting up my designs. WHEN I'M NOT. very odd.

Who has that many votes that can put that kind of spin on their own designs?

Maybe it's the "DIVA EARTH" person, since that one still has more votes than you?

Probably not.

I have a couple accounts that I can influence voting with, but certainly not 20.... yet!

I don't know. To buy that many different items, using that many different email addresses is certainly beyond my compulsion levels. It is annoying, though, especially since someone claimed I was somehow cheating last night, long after I'd gone to bed. My only thought is that because both my and Laura's design got votes last night, someone thought we were voting them up as a pair. I think it far more likely that there was some cross referencing going on that gave both of them votes. I wish woot'd fix this mess with the multiple accounts, though I don't see how they really can.

Clearly someone has that many accounts, and all those votes in the hotness are going to disappear probably at the same time. I know when I got up this moring, you could be in the hotness with as few as 2 votes, because most of the designs had from 2-3 votes, including my mosaic (a nice moring surprise), which had 2. At some time after 8:00 all 3 of mine had 20. just disturbing.

In the real world, I have partially repaired my oak desk I got from Indpls. The top is all scratched up, making it impossible to write on, but the desk itself is solid, and weighs approximately 3 tons. I really need to figure out what to do about the top.

Thank you.

Here:

My wife (who didn't vote for it) said it is the worst drawing of mine she's ever seen!

I like it myself- I just love the look on Ulysses face when he sees what a little thing Polyphemus is. I was expecting this one to be my favorite design to get no votes at all. :^D

finally those 20 votes disappeared, which is why that shirt dropped out of the hotness.

the closest thing you can do that I've found is to go to http://www.shirtderbystats.com, and find one of the artist's designs, and click on their name, which will have a link that then shows all their entries in the current derby. you can also search through previous derbies once you've done that.

I watch that show now and then on channel surfing. The kids are cute and I will say that Kate & what's his name seem to be great parents. But dang, she sure gets uptight easily. Can't fault them for finding a way to fund their family.

Well, we're waiting for the freezing rain & road icing to start. We're at 30 (22 w/c) now. The falling precipitation is just north of us. Could be dicey getting home. Wondering if they'll end up releasing school early. That's always a mess because you can't let the little ones go until bus time or their parents pick them up. Could be a delay tomorrow morning.

Morning everybody. Got 3 to 5 inches of snow overnight, depending on if you ask me or husband. I think 3. Doing nothing now, but supposed to start sleet/freezing rain later today and then turn back to snow again.

Great breakfast today! Husband got up first and cut grapefruit and fried bacon. Then I had leftover egg mixture from egg muffins last night and scrambled that, which looked really Christmasy with the green onion and diced red pepper in it. Add sourdough toast and, voila!, brunch.

The woman who had the litter of eight babies said last night that she was going to breastfeed. Okay. That sounds like the easiest part of the job because, obviously, she won't have time to do anything but sit and nurse.

Unless she's a cow, she's going to have to supplement her milk with formula, I'm betting. But kudos to her for doing it!

That is us tomorrow. I just canceled a eye doctor appointment.
First of all, I never went to the eye doctor (the guy with the PhD, not the MD. The guy who does all the work!) to get my history.
I can't remember when the eye went blind...when the sight came back, what it was called. When the cataract was taken out, when the rest of the cataract was lazered out (the meds that got the sight back cause cataracts and the cataract was huge by then.

so, in other words, I'm looking for a reason not to go in the snow tomorrow. The other cataract isn't ready to come out anyway. That is why I'm going. It is just too hard to park where the doctor who did the other one has his office.
I want a nice surburban parking lot!

Well, it is mom day. Gotta get there early so we can go to the hospital...again. Then, once we are there, she makes excuses on why we have to leave.
Dog was out. I did a cleanup at the park, so my dog poop Karma is set for weeks and weeks now! If I can't find his poo, I picked up a ton of someone elses and it all evens out in the end!
Plus a broken beer bottle.

Stupid dog doesn't like chasing grapenuts. How the heck can I run him????
Met two dogs, neither could play.

Rats clean and fed!

Now I need to clean me...but I'm typing to myself.
