My Triumphant Yet Somewhat Lazy Return to Blogging, Complete With Photos

I'm baaaaaack! Mostly. I've just been so darn uninspired, but I've got some good photos to share, in no particular order:

  1. I wish I had been able to more effectively capture this Metro rider's eyebrows, each of which were literally as thick as one of my fingers. My best guess is that he's a holdover from Nazi Germany or is using his forehead as a caterpillar incubator.

  2. My favorite genre listing at the Cleveland Park Library's big book sale. Ten cents a piece! A real steal if feline mischief is your bag. (I admit, though, that I purchased three Mary Higgins Clark mysteries and a $1 copy of the Torah. Yeah, THAT Torah.)

  3. One of my favorite outfits in a long time, making her way through the crosswalk outside my apartment. To her credit, she was Russian, which sortofkindofmaybe makes this OK. And yes, immediately after I snapped this photo, she picked a legging wedgie, which I'm sorry to have missed capturing. Just another reminder why LEGGINGS SHOULD NOT BE SUBSTITUTED FOR ACTUAL PANTS. Also, it was about 50 degrees out at the time this photo was taken.


  4. And finally, my absolute favorite billboard. Maybe ever. I'm blocking the giant face of the Quaker Oats dude. And no, nothing about this billboard makes any sense. But I love it & it makes me more inclined to chow on oatmeal, so I guess someone did their job correctly.

behind the dude with the stache and brows, there's someone in a hat just grilling you.

That Quaker Oats ad IS strangely mood-improving. In a quirky oddball sort of way.

And Matt, how charming. As always.

That Russian get-up reminds me of my time in Ukraine. I was always perplexed by the Eastern European fashion sense in FREEZING weather.

... yeah ...

and that oatmeal add is wicked. I eat oatmeal every morning, so that ad just reinforces the general feeling of coolness I feel every morning!
