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.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would mean something to me.

Finally, if you interpret anything on this blog as me asking or wanting pity, sympathy, or complaining about my life, or asking for help and advice, know you’re  likely missing my subtle mix of irony, sarcasm, and humor.
