From the Ridiculous to the Sublime

May I just say, I miss having both time to do a Slice of Lime or other photographic endeavors and now in having a camera that even functions properly. First the camera didn't want to play nice with my computer and I eventually found some ways around that though it was a pain. For some time now my camera has just not wanted to play at all even when it has fresh batteries.

Well, this week I offer some things I found around the Interwebs that either amused or touched me.


This one I may print out and hang on both Diana's and Calypso's doors.



When will the carnage end?


Why yes, I can laugh at the ever delectable Hugh Jackman and not just drool over him.


The definition of beauty, contrary to what Madison Avenue says.


Should be required reading for all children and their grownups.



And now, for your pleasure, I submit the before and after of my first day of kindergarten. Feel free to offer your ideas for captions.

Hmm. In the first picture, you look amused. Then in the second picture, you look like you want to slap someone :D What happened in between there? lol

Cocotte said...

LOL - the second photo you look totally worn out...."You call that a half day?"

Cricket said...

"Itchy balls" made me laugh out loud.

Captions, huh? I'm thinking

1) A brand new year!
2) Miller Time!

But that's just me.

Yeah, yeah; Hugh Jackman. . . I get it. . . And putcher hand down; he's not askin' fer volunteers. . . ;)

I don't know why, but the BP/Spongebob one just cracked me up. . .

And you know, we've taken the hopeful, standing-on-the-porch, I'm-going-go-my-first-day-of-kindergarten photo of all our kids, but it never, ever occurred to us to take the Ugh-I-just-got-home-from-my-first-day-of-kindergarten shot. 'Course, none of them mouthed off to the principal on their first day of school, either. . . ;)

Were you in "oh my god, I have YEARS more of this" mode at the end of the day?

1st picture: Bright, hopeful expectations

2nd picture: Real life strikes back

Craig said...

And that 'Old & Wrinkly w/ Laugh Lines' is utterly precious. Is that a card, or something? 'Cuz I'd love to give a copy of that to my wife. . .

craig, that and the one about "the little prince" are postcards from the site postsecret.com. maybe i should have shared about that.

Hilary said...

The Hugh Jackman poster cracked me up. The one following it made me smile. The Little Prince made me nod.

It looks like Little Lime has that note from the principal in hand. A rude awakening for a outspoken child.

Suldog said...

I don't have any captions for the photos, but they sure speak volumes. And Bobby Wright RIPPED OFF FELIX'S EARS?!? That bastard! No wonder you look so sad.

Jericho said...

Hmmm...seems to be a subtle emotional change from before to after... Did the food suck? the playground? Whatever it was, you were SOOOOO cute!

Ananda girl said...

Great photo laughs! Loved them all.

1) First day of kindergarten before crabby teacher and principal.
2) First day of kindergarten after crabby teacher and principal.

S said...

LOL You look positively exhausted and unfluffed!
That's what happens when you tell the teacher what for!

I agree about that image of real beauty.

Even your socks have slipped in the second photo. Kindergarten is exhausting.

God, please forgive me but I would almost thank BP for terminating that irritating spongey piss ant.
