Weird Weekend Wonders

garfield minus garfield

Has it been one of those weeks for you? It has for me. Lots of stress. Lots of activity. Not much to show for it. I'm busily reclaiming my life over here from the pandemonium and looking forward to getting into my next freelance assignment. I'm redesigning's website. As you can see, it could use a bit of spit and polish. I'll let you know how it goes. So far I've spent the week studying other anti-drunk driving advocacy sites and clicking around the labyrinthine site determining which is the most vital content and how to present it. I'm doodling with a highway motif featuring sign shapes at present, but I've got other ideas knocking around the noodle as well.

I finished Terry Pratchett's "The Color of Magic". What a wonderfully silly book. It really picked up my spirits. I was also impressed with his clever writing and word play. Imagine Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but in a fantasy setting. I've begun his The Light Fantastic which continues the story from the first book. So far it has not disappointed. I recommend both for light-hearted (not light) reading.

As you have probably noticed, I have been experimenting with my blog a bit. I'm not trying to add value to it as much as help it keep my attention. After three years, this old AD/HD mind of mine is wanting to wander off. I'm going to try something new today and we'll see how it goes. Heaven knows most of you won't bother letting me know one way or the other what you think. You'd think you folks were busy with your own lives or something.

At any rate, every Saturday I get together with my friends and invariably I will share with them some of the weirdest stuff I come across when I'm being browsey. One of these friends suggested I share some of my wildest findings in a blog. Since I already have a blog I thought maybe this would be a perfect Friday post. Welcome to Weird Weekend Wonders. There is a world of web wackiness out there. Somehow, I gravitate towards it like some sick, twisted satellite. Much weirder than Rick Rolling or even Vista Rolling, plus funny to boot.

Ladies & Gentlemen. I give you Japanese English Lessons:
