Project 313 – Post No. 009

This is a huge milestone for the Project 313; we’re nearly into double digits. It’ll be all smooth sailing from here on. 

I said various things occupy my time and I decided I’d mention a few of them as a preview of things to come. 

One thing I’m doing is trying to get more sleep. There’s a lot of data pointing to people getting less than 7-8 hours sleep each night dropping off like flies. Also, being less productive, being unable to concentrate on tasks, and in general not reaching the full potential decreed by destiny and cast as immutable on the river of time oh so long ago, before even Nutella and Spam came into this world. 

I think lack of sleep is following in the footsteps of gluten as achieving the status of universal evil. Just imagine if lack of sleep becomes associated with gluten . . . I plan to start a business selling gluten-free sheets, pillows, beds, and even bedrooms! I’ll be a millionaire before you can say “fad”!

And now, the photo:

Project 313 009

These are from the same shop that has the shutters (a photo from a few posts ago). They import a lot of interesting pieces. I can’t tell if these are concrete cast and made to look like rocks or actually sculpted rocks. Either way, we both like these and that will be one of my projects when and if we ever buy a house . . . to make some of these. Yes, yet another hobby I won’t tell anyone about. 

Today’s cartoon is — this time for real — a Joe Martin comic strip.

I think I’ve used this one before in a previous post but since I hadn’t flagged it as having been used, I can’t be sure. I would appreciate — and be seriously impressed — if readers went back through the previous 1,200+ posts and check if that is indeed the case. 

I understand if no one will but, again, super-impressed by anyone who does! Super-impressed. 

I’m still experimenting with the animated gifs. The interesting thing, for them who care about these things, is that as simple as they are, they’re a minimum of 3MB to a maximum of 6MB in size. 

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

    They do look like concrete. Concrete is good , too.

      It does, but it has a distressed look, like if it’s old or has been exposed to the elements for a while. Also, concrete usually has a texture you can recognize; this doesn’t.

      Then again, I ain’t no expert in concrete; I might be Italian, but the aqueducts, colosseums, and roads were a bit before my time.

  2. Oh, I hope you can get more sleep! Not enough sleep is a bummer.

    Have you ever put Nutella on SPAM?!?! Have I ever asked you that before?!?! (I think I have!)

    Love your idea for gluten-free bedrooms! OOH! You could add a gluten-free spray that smells like a bakery! People could spray it in their bedrooms to help them have sweet dreams! Ha!

    Those concrete or rock pieces make amazingly cool planters!

    HA! It looks like Ethel is ironing some of Willy’s polka-dot underpants!

    The Doodle of Da’ Day is very constellation-y to me.

    Okay…let’s see if I can do the math in my head…313 – 9 = …okay, give me a minute…uh…er…ah…okay…AH…313 – 9 = A LOT of Project Posts left to do! Ha!

      Here’s the thing . . . 4-5 hrs of sleep is what I did for years and years. In Colorado I had to get up at 4:30 am but would often go to bed after 12:00. As long as I remember, that’s been my sleeping routine. I’m trying more, but I just wake up and then if I do fall back asleep, it messes me up. So, I’m trying to increase the sleep a bit at a time. But then, like last night, I look up and it’s 2:00am. I woke up at 5:30 and it took me a while to get back to sleep but woke up again at 7:00 and got up.

      So, good . . . sounds like I have one customer for gluten-free bedrooms. The spray is not a good idea because it would make people yearn for gluten.

      I was going to name that doodle Neighborhood Security Lights From Above.

      You used a calculator, didn’t you?

      • Yes, I can totally relate to your sleeping routine.
        Even now, I often only get only 5 – 6 hours of sleep per night. That is why I am up now, unsupervised. (Yes, the supervisor is asleep!)
        Ha! Yeah…I wanted to mess with the gluten-free people! (Yes, I know…donut do it again, Carolyn!)
        GREAT name for that doodle!
        HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I did!!!!!!

    I think your photo of those rocky pieces showcases them very beautifully. The color harmony and composition is great . . . a mural of it would suit me just fine.
