It’s a Two-for-Thursday! Because… you know… I couldn’t make up my mind. I just hope you weren’t expecting pens.

Q: “Were you expecting an exploding pen? We don’t really go in for that anymore.”

This was a very delicate operation. Or… something like that.

Collar me, don’t collar me…

I’ve got my spine, I’ve got my orange crush’

Throwing Smoke

It might have been easier to photograph the baseball and smoke separately and then merge them in Photoshop, but… eh. Have a great weekend, everyone!

It’s grungy parking bits day (or abstracted view-o-ramp to get there day, anyway). Have a great weekend, everyone!

Sometimes I just can’t decide what to call these things… or what to say about them. Words. Anyway, have a great weekend, everyone!

Hannah Green: “And even though you’re book is really beautiful, I mean, amazingly beautiful, it’s… it’s at times… it’s… very detailed. You know, with the genealogies of everyone’s horses, and the dental records, and so on. And… I could be wrong, but it sort of reads in places like you didn’t make any choices. At all.”
