Project 313 – Post No. 035

Doing nothing is causing me to fall behind in setting up these posts. I like to have at least three in the can and ready to go but I’ve let the margin slip to just one less than two posts. That means that if tomorrow I win the lotto and forget to write a post, the string will be broken at No. 37. 

I’m ambivalent about it . . . on the one hand, I’d like to finish the project without any breaks or interruptions. On the other hand, the lotto . . . imagine the amount of spam I could buy. 

Decisions, decisions. 

Anyway, because I am behind, I’ll keep this short. 

Alright, alright; keep the cheering down or I’ll let loose after the artistic break. 

And now, the photo:

Project 313 035

I be happy with the color combination. The unartsified version is also nice, but I’ll save that for some other post. 

OK, rushing right along, here’s the cartoon . . . 

. . . I wrote about changing one’s routine to keep one’s life interesting and fresh . . . that’s not exactly what I meant, but close enough. 

Continuing at breakneck speed, the doodle titled Cthulhu’s Benevolent Nephew. 

Cthulhu’s Benevolent Nephew

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.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

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.

  1. What about the volcano, it looks rather dangerous, the gods must be angry!

      The gods are always angry. Also, for some reason, they always seem concerned with the human reproductive cycle and the minutia of human sexuality. But, that’s another story.

      Stuff continues to happen but as I’ve expressed in my two updates, it’s not here and there’s minimal effect (if any) in our lives. That’s not to say that it’s not a big deal where it’s happening, but again it’s all relative. The area affected by the lava outflow is relatively small (some 300 acres out of 4,000 square miles) with the area affected by the fumes and ash fallout changing depending on the steam/ash explosions and the prevailing winds.

      Not to minimize it, but I also get annoyed at the news. They often speak of “the big one” without explaining the possible or likely magnitude of it and what it would mean.

      For instance, the crater from where the ash plume emerged yesterday morning is about three miles from Volcano (a city/community). There’s no evacuation notice and the only warnings there are to stay indoors in case of an “explosion” mostly due to the air quality and the danger of inhaling ash and toxic fumes. The news, however, shows photos of big lava outflows and huge explosions that look as if the world is ending.

      We can get some sanity by looking at previous eruptions. Again, not to minimize what’s happening, but it’s often being blown out of proportion.

      The majority of the islands are under the threat of a potential increase in the amount of Vog, but that’s nothing new. We get hit with increased amounts because the winds whip around Mauna Loa and the Vog settles on the western side of the island when the trade winds are not blowing, but, again, so far, not that much worse than we’ve seen other times.


  2. I suppose the SPAM remark was put in for my benefit
    . Ploughing through your reply to that bloke who’s forever packing a suitcase it seems that you have become quite an Hawai’ian native, the way you’re identifying yourself as ‘We”.


  3. OH! I hope you win the lotto…but I hope you DON’T stop Project 313! I’ve really really really (Did I say really?!) been enjoying it! I hope you can keep on with the Project!

    But, I can’t imagine posting a blogpost even a few times a week, let alone every day. I could never keep up with it. But, then I’m “a twiddler, a dreamer, a silly-heart, and a jabber-box”! (Quote from movie Uncle Buck!)

    PHOTO: Love this one! Soft, subtle, pastel-y color! Peaceful and SIGH-worthy!
    CARTOON: HA! I’d be less bored looking at nothing, than watching someone iron. I can relate to Willy…just a slight change of pace, new scenery, etc., and I’m excited, amused, and refreshed! I don’t know if Willy ever gets excited very often?!?!
    DOODLE: The nephew is very colorful!

    HUGS and Happy Whee-kend!!! :-)

    I’ll tell you what; if I win the lotto, I promise I will finish Project 313 . . . or pay someone to be as witty, creative, and weird as me to finish it in my stead.

    . . . How much do you charge, by the way?

    Thanks, Carolyn, and happy royal-wedding-I-don’t-care-about-weekend to you as well.
