Big Eyes

20120815 Chacewater Building Face 150x150 Big EyesThis picture was sent in by Jennifer.¬† It was taken at Chacewater.¬† I love big eyes. Maybe it’s because of the innocence and vulnerability¬†they convey; babies and young animals have big eyes compared to their heads and the rest of their body.¬† Or maybe it’s because I have massive eyes myself: big black eyes, complementing my red skin tone.¬† Like me, this¬†face has its mouth wide open.¬† You know what?¬† I think¬†it could be my grandfather, fossilised – turned to stone.¬† He went on a cruise around the Universe and never came back.¬† Maybe he crash landed on your planet…

Did you hear about the rover that Nasa sent to Mars?¬† I think it’s called “Curiosity”.¬† You humans are so primitive, it’s a joke!¬† Sky Crane?¬† How about an anti-gravity field?¬† Anyway, that’s enough from me…¬† Thanks Jen!

A joke without a punchline

20110204 Files and drawer 150x150 A joke without a punchlineWhat do you get when you cross two¬†box files with a drawer?¬† A face laughing at a joke without a punchline!¬† Sorry?¬† Oh, surely you get jokes!¬† Everyone gets jokes…¬†¬†Right?¬† I have a load of box files with important looking documents in them lined up on a cabinet beside my desk in the office.¬† Indeed they are important (to the job I do), but not particularly entertaining.¬† Think ground investigation reports, British Standards and other such delightful things.¬† Yawn?¬† Not exactly light reading, unless you are that way inclined…

Occasionally these boxes get moved about, partly because I am lazy and accidentally knock them when I reach over my desk to take documents out and put them back.¬† Ha!¬† That’s a pack of lies: I never put them back and end up with a big pile of paper and reports on my desk.¬† I delude myself that a busy man’s desk is never tidy and that it’s an organised mess – a piling (as opposed to a¬†filing)¬†“system”.

A few posts ago I commented on how random bits of junk left over from a party had aligned themselves into a shape resembling a face (see Random Order).¬† This is yet another example of how unrelated items come together to form a face.¬† This one kind of reminds me of the little knitted characters they had in an advert for a car whose name I can’t remember.¬† Now that’s good advertising!¬† I believe the slogan was “C’mon”…¬† (That’ll be ¬£10 for the plug, please Mr… Mr… damn, I told you I can’t remember…)¬† I suppose I could Google it, but I don’t really give a toss! ūüôā
