 ;D

Currently I'm stuck in stage 3, just letting everything go for a bit to concentrate on stuff like, um, gaming or whatever, is nice... still hoping to one day get another few months off to where I can just all-out no-life for a while, completely neglecting personal care while being stuck in a fantasy world.  :D

Thanks, that made me smile.  At least I have a garden to work in and some places to walk...hope to get cycling again soon (partly so as not to resemble the fourth frame!).  It's hard; we're all stressed out.

Best,

PD

A Netflix series called Merry Happy Whatever.

If you have Google Chrome, right click on an image, and among the actions offered is Google's image search, which identifies the image about 98% of the time. (Sometimes it just comes back with a generic answer like "man drinking from coffee cup.)  That's what I did for this.

If you don't have Chrome, do a search for "reverse image search with [your browser and OS]" to find out how.

Trying to figure out what he might be saying looking at the rose [as I can't see the title]:  1) "Ah, you are far inferior to the beauty of my love, but you must suffice as a mere token to her of my love for her"....or??   ;)

Thanks for google image search I found out it is a Mayan site in Southern Mexico.

Here's an ordinary photo of the same site.

^I, for one, welcome our feline overlords.

Spotting this in the supermarket I felt oddly delighted that the trash mags have found a way to make their Brad-Jen stories intersect with their Palace Scandal stories.

Or will the universe explode if two alternate realities are forced to inhabit the same space?

I've had to look up example NY licenses for work a few times.

I see this as the most common search result, but his expression is so funny.

I can just imagine him making quick, short nods, proclaiming, "I'm Michael Motorist! Guess what I get do?! I get to go VROOM VROOM in my car! Yeah! I know you can't believe it, but it's real! Yeah! VROOM VROOM!"
