The ravages of time

paulina pistachio 150x150 The ravages of timeI quite like pistachios but they are a pain to eat.  In general I don’t like food that has bits in it, around it or anything that hampers my ability to eat it.  That said, I’m not a fussy eater and will eat most things.  I prefer boneless chicken and fish… GM to the rescue! 🙂 Of course that’s not what I meant…

Back on the subject of pistachios, I hate it when they haven’t cracked open properly and when you try to take the shell off you end up stabbing yourself under your thumbnail.  That ‘kin hurts.  Sometimes you dive into the bag and find shells that have cracked open too far and the actual edible bit has fallen out.  What you are left with is Paulina.  Paulina Pistachio is her full name.  You might think she looks like a slapper, heavily made up, but she has inner beauty…  Nah, what am I talking about, she’s an airhead – literally.  She once had inner goodness but she lost it.  The ravages of time… with a twist.

I spy…

20110130 Halogen Light Bulb 150x150 I spy...Well hello there!  A bit of admin first: We’re back and there’s a new feature!  As promised, this website is set to be about much more than just faces in inanimate objects and this is the first post in a series called “I Spy… An alternate take on reality”.  I’ve also put up another gallery and changed the menus around a bit just to annoy everyone.  🙂  This will allow for future expansion and additional features that are coming your way soon.  If you are looking for “Lolphaces” you have to navigate to “Galleries” first.

Right, admin over…  Look at the picture and what do you see?  “Why, a halogen light bulb,” I hear you cry.  You are correct and it’s a 50W one to boot.  I got a three-pack from Asda the other day, as two of the spotlights in the kitchen had blown.  Shortly after another one in the bathroom went.  Have you ever noticed how light bulbs all tend to blow at once?  I’m not an electrical engineer or an electrician, but could it be because light bulbs of the same type have a similar life span?  I tend to wait to replace light bulbs until several have gone – because I’m lazy.  Maybe it’s because when I do eventually replace them in batches they all burn out around the same time again.  Just a hypothesis.  Or maybe it’s because of an underlying electrical fault.  Answers on a postcard or in the comments below! 🙂

Okay, now it’s time to play a game of “I spy”.  Are you ready?  I spy with my little eye something beginning with “S”…  I’ll tell you: her name is Suzie Slug.  Isn’t she beautiful?  Take a good look (click picture to enlarge), but no touching! 😉  You’ll see plenty more of her later… stay tuned.
