Ramblings of a doodle-addled mind

~Random ramblings, just because I can~

Doodle. Doodle. Doodle. That's all this blog has featured for the past five days. It's fun, but it's time for some alternative content, don't you think?

Don M.F.H. dredged up an ancient (OK, it's only 9 years old) photo of the two of us and the rest of the copy desk. Who dressed me? Mom jeans (back when Mom jeans were in style?), shiny gold earring, stretchy necklace? And worse yet, who are some of those other people in the photo? I can't remember all of them.

I'm two months or so overdue for a haircut. At this rate, my bangs will grow out for the first time in 35 years.

Saw Iron Man on opening night. Excellent! Go see it. Now.

Saw Speed Racer on opening night. Fun. It's very true to the spirit of the original cartoon. And Matthew Fox as Racer X? Yummy.

Winning Apples to Apples with a quirky but otherwise unrelated answer ("Bubbles", btw) is totally awesome. Especially because it annoys everyone else.

Ending the night in the Greater Peon's chair is not totally awesome. I'm the hat!

Mario Kart for the Wii? Total crowd pleaser. Yoshi!

I'm out of clever things to Twitter. (Did I ever have anything clever to Twitter?) It looks like I'll be stuck Twittering meal plans and laundry lists if I don't snap out of it soon.

Looking forward to Eddie Izzard on Friday night. Cake, please!

Posting this Godzilla picture for my husband. It's one of his favorites. Wish I knew where it came from so I could give proper credit.

And now back to our regularly scheduled doodling. At least for the next two days.


  1. So I had to check out the photo. What stuck out in the picture was the paneling on the walls. :)

  2. Now that you've started doodling do you really want to stop? :)

  3. @Hunter's Wife -- Pretty bad paneling, I agree. And the photo makes it look better than I remember it!

    @Laura -- If only my doodles were as spontaneous and natural as yours! I'll work on it. And no, I don't think I'll stop. Maybe you two should create a Doodle Day weekly meme next. Now, to get over my doodle block and create my next two doodles...

  4. I absolutely love Eddie Izzard, so your a luck bugger getting to see him.
