Random TBT Fun

Filed under: — Jaime @ 3:09 pm

This oldie has been stuck in my head all morning:

I’m not complaining. I love this song.

Going way back, to November 1954, this is my current reading: Galaxy Magazine. The subjects of the stories in this particular issue have a lot of connections to Mike or my hobbies/interests so I had to start reading it. I’m only into the first story – about a legal case disputing whether or not DIY robots are property or independent beings. It’s hilarious and rather thought-compelling so far. There is also a story in there about a musician who tries to become a museum exhibit and another about genealogy and time travel. It’s like this issue was made for me nearly decades before I existed. Nice!

Finally, I was digging through my Memories Box and found a film selfie from April 1994 of these two cuties (taken near the woods that no longer exist off of Wolf Rd in Frankfort, IL):

Clearly this was before we knew about making duckface so we don’t look like we have extra chins. I swear, neither one of us was fat. In fact, we were pretty damned fine looking 17 years olds if I may say so myself.


Miracles, Baby

I think I’m going to wander around with my index finger in the air. If it works in parking lots, it may work here. Please, kind friend or stranger – miracle me! There simply is not enough of me to go around.


Glitter Bomb?

Filed under: — Jaime @ 3:27 pm

I meant to post this when I first saw it nearly two weeks ago (Feb. 6). This was taken outside my office building – looks like someone got glitter bombed. Kind of sorry I missed it.

Happy Friday the 13th. Stay positive.

Where’s the Fun in Fundraisers?

Filed under: — Jaime @ 2:47 pm

Working at law firms for as many years as I have, I get invited to an overwhelming amount of fundraisers. So let me ask you – why do 99% of fundraisers either involve drinking or running (and sometimes both)?

Seriously, I don’t do either. Because of that I am not inclined to go to your fundraising event. Being that I’m not really a charitable person (hey, at least I admit it), I find it’s an easy excuse to get out of the invite if there will be drinking or running involved. So if you’re going to be organizing such an event, consider doing something, anything different. You might actually be able to separate me from my money that way. Just a thought.


Don’t Worry – I Won’t Call You

Filed under: — Jaime @ 3:11 pm

If you know anything about me, you know I really dislike talking on the phone. This is most strongly evidenced by the fact that I am one of the few people in all of the western world that does not have a cell or smart phone. I haven’t felt the need to get one or that I am ‘missing out’ on anything because I don’t have one. The single drawback that I’ve experienced is that I don’t have a convenient way to store everyone’s phone numbers. My work around is to maintain a call list and carry it in my wallet. The point of all of this is to let you know that I am updating my list. If you’d like me to have your number, and think I don’t already have it, please email me at legaleeze @ hotmail DOT com or send me a message through Facebook and I will put you on my list. As promised, don’t worry, I won’t call you.


Psst, Got Yer Links Right Here

Filed under: — Jaime @ 3:12 pm

A few interesting links from around teh interwebz. Enjoy and pass along –

Unmasked: Can playing guitar make goalies better? – including bonus pic of Henrik, drool.

Hatsune Miku – as if I needed another reason to be fascinated with Japanese culture. Korg pedal bonus (ie the hilarity ensues): Korg Miku Pedal review

For the locals: Super Museum Sunday is this Sunday. Take advantage. We’ve done this a number of years and it’s always worth it. We’re thinking maybe Wormsloe this year.

We’re all obsessed waiting for the eggs to hatch, now you can be too: Landings Bird Cam
