Random Photos

I'm scheduling this to post itself sort of close to Thanksgiving. And so while you're all enjoying your leftover dead bird sandwiches, I figured you could enjoy these sights I saw around town.

First off, I think I need some of this lotion, 'cause I've been feeling all sorts of cynical lately:Also, I found out that in addition to serving up HAPPY chickens in Houston, we are also home of the Pollo Bravo:Now even though I do speak Spanish to a certain extent, at first glance I thought that this would mean that the chickens were brave. And doesn't that sort of make sense, that they would fry up the very bravest chickens in addition to the happiest?

But it actually means the same as the English. So I guess we're just CHEERING the chickens. Like, "Bravo! Way to go!! You're going to be the best dead chicken I ever ate!!!! Rah rah rah!"

I occasionally accuse myself of feeling like a train wreck. Today was the first day I ever saw the remnants of a real one though. Younger Gal took photos out our car window:




It's just not every day you pass a truck full of plastic geese. At least I only pass a truck full of plastic geese every once in a great while:Goat milk lollipops, yum!Actually, my guess is that I'd probably like those.

And that's it! I hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving weekend!

Train wreck! Oh! Bad! And I'm taking your word for it that those are plastic geese. I mean...why would you mislead us oh cynical one? Get into the cream I say.

Christine said...

Is that "you are Naive if you think this will make you beautiful" cream? Awesome.

SJ said...

Christine- Isn't that true of all beauty creams?

Or maybe I am being cynical.

Arizaphale - Although Younger Gal's effort was valiant, it was impossible, I think, to capture the magnitude of the derailment from a moving car with a point and shoot. Even the next day it was absolutely mesmerizing.

Christine - I hadn't considered that aspect! I thought I could just rub some on and wash away the jadedness. :-)

Then again, I guess SJ might be right. Or maybe he just needs some cream...

I hope I never see a train wreck up close- it is one of the few things I MIGHT end up describing as "epic," though that term is horribly misused these days...

Bruce said...

I have the awful suspicion that the oriental language on the "Naive" bottles of hair care (I assume that is what it is), say 'made from crushed baby turtles' (green tube) and 'made from mangled baby ducklings' (red tube)

Kristine said...

My Dad swears that pancakes made with goats' milk are the best darn thing he's ever had.

I think I need a little naive cream myself.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Loraine - Luckily no one was hurt on this one. For lack of a better word, it really was an amazing sight.

Funny Bruce!!!!!!!

Kristine - I've never tried goat milk pancakes, but I'd probably like them. :-)

road kill, train wrecks, goat milk, this was a very yucky post!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Beth - We aims to please...or something. :-)
