Well, my idea last week turned out to be a rather lame one with fairly pitiful results. I want to thank Seamus, M, and Tan Lucy Pez for playing along by sending me some rather bizarre emails in an attempt to induce Gmail to give me even more bizarre results in advertising. Alas, Gmail simply did not cooperate by providing anything amusing enough to waste blog space on. The real tragedy is I might actually have to attempt creativity this week.
I was getting panicked about needing to produce. In the nick of time I received a package in the mail from my dear Logo as part of a crap swapping idea initiated by Susie. Logo showed what craptacular magnificence she received from Susie back on Friday. I am waiting to see what Susie does with the truly amazing crap I sent to her.
What lovely crap did I receive? Let me show you...
Now to be honest this is fairly nice crap. I mean it might actually have some tasteful decorative purpose unlike the glasses Logo received or the thing I sent Susie (And heaven help you if you combine Logo's crap with Susie's crap...I'm telling ya, it could be like matter meeting antimatter.....the end of intelligent life on this planet!) But this little palm tree plaque isn't so bad. In fact, it makes me think of a terrific place with palm trees...I think you know the place...little island called Trinidad?
Ok, I know this picture is supposed to be more evocative of the Mediterranean, but I'VE NEVER BEEN THERE LIKE SOME PEOPLE!!!! Oh, sure I've wanted to. Sure, it's on my 'do before I die list.' Sure, I'm only half Greek and would give my left arm (Wait, I almost have) to see my ancestral homeland. And now I have this plaque to remind me of where I've never been. Oooooooh, the cruelty. (cue wailing and gnashing of teeth, beating of breast and rending of garments....someone get me the sackcloth and ashes already!)
Well, I have only one response to this. Logo? Remember that killer sandwich I told you about? You know, the one with a grilled chicken breast marinated in lemon pepper and balsamic vinegar and olive oil? The one with homemade fresh pesto and peppers I roasted specially for the sandwich? The one with fresh mozzarella? The one on that yummy toasted garlic herb bread? Yeah, that's the one. The one right here.
The picture came out kind of overexposed a bit but mmmmm, doesn't that make your mouth water? Mwahahahahaha!
Love you, Logo dear. Thanks for my crap. Meet you in San Francisco! Mwah!
*UPDATE: Please run, do not walk, over to Ratburn's place to see what he's doing with the crap I sent Susie!
*UPDATE to the update: Sorry the link was no good. It's fixed now.
