Beware the Reindeer Man!

-© Private/Dagbladet/Drammens Tidene

You come back from a long holiday. Scads of mail to sort. Out pops pictures of a man in a reindeer suit sitting in you garden reading your newspaper. Outrage! Trespasser! Art! Apparently this man's performances are caring the locals and his story has made national news in Norway. People fear the worst. Most likely because his identity remains a secret.

Like they may catch fur suit cooties.

I think this is fabulous. More silly things like this should happy. Humor and art are not brought together nearly enough. And I"m all for polaroids of people doing silly things. Now, let's just hope for a similar Badger Man in Madison. :)

Article - Bad English translation, Original


I'm fucking SORE. I walked to work. 2ish miles. Walked to the gym. 3.5ish miles there way I went. I walked home. 2.25ish miles. I then died into a bowl of rice and dumplings. I'm not sure if tis pain is worse than the acute pain of cycling to work. It's really hard in cold weather with the bronchial pain. I'm not sure that sort of thing ever gets better even were I in excellent shape, cardiovascular-wise.

Eventually I dragged myself to bed after cleaning some weird wetness Aetrix9 found from the cats, most likely, and edited photos for smed; because I'm dumb I didn't upload to show them.

blah blah. boring boring.


Juliet. Juliet.

Current Mood: sore sore

This means something

It means your friends rule. I'm going to come to your house with a carpet on my head a la TMBG. Just you wait.

Re: This means something

HA! Showed you, I don't live in Jersey City. Save that barrage of dredge for the other suckers. :P

I live in Secaucus. Yuppie colony derived from a pig farm.

The photos are likely still in your "sent" box... or I have them in my inbox to foward back to you... unless you're speaking of different pictures...

They're full size. Too big to upload and Paint is too crappy to resize without losing data.

Download Picasa... works in a pinch.

Could you send the sepia picture back? I deleted my sent box last night because the files were big. :)
smed From: smed Date: September 14th, 2006 01:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
No. It looks more black and white then sepia here. But I still like it.
abmann From: abmann Date: September 14th, 2006 02:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
IT'S SUBTLE!
Too much sepia is a bad thing in photos with lots of black. it's the highlights adn midtones that pic it up so onyou your face adn the concrete would be sepia toned.

PS: Picasa is impressive.

It's great for a free app.

I love that you titled it Juliet... Did you know that there's a story behind that?
abmann From: abmann Date: September 14th, 2006 04:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
No idea about a story. Please explain.

As you know Grant has a balcony. As Fox knows, so do I. Whenever Grant would come home, I'd try to be on the balcony waiting for him - excitied to see him come home you know. And he'd always call up to me, something along the lines of "My Juliet on the balcony."

And he proposed on my balcony... so it's all kind fo special.

Aww. Nice.
Great minds think alike?

PS: Why isn't this face an icon yet?
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: September 14th, 2006 02:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
None of the pics of me from that day worked out?
abmann From: abmann Date: September 14th, 2006 02:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
No, plenty did. You just haven't been riding me to send them to you like she has. :)
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: September 14th, 2006 02:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh.
smed From: smed Date: September 14th, 2006 02:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, I'll show you riding boy... :)
abmann From: abmann Date: September 14th, 2006 02:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Wooo!
