Visitor at the window

I know that Karen blogged it, but it's always amusing.

Zooey learning to high five (Happy National High Five Day)

Alternate title for this video: Cat teaches human how to do its bidding.

I'm trying to see if I can teach Zooey that if she wants to get water from the faucet, she needs to give me a high five. I've got the stretch back pretty well perfected, now it's just a matter of teaching her that she needs to make contact.

Edit: Allie informed me that today happens to be National High Five Day. I couldn't have picked a better time to put this online.

Hey John the Baptist, have you seen the Messiah?

Sure this is a stretch to be on a photoblog, but it is a photo of a painting. If that bothers you, wait until tomorrow when I post a video instead of a photo.


From the DIA in Detroit. These Detroit photos are from when Karen and I went and took a fun trip for our one year anniversary last October.

UMMA: How it looks now

Greasy fingers?

I went out to the car today to see that someone had decided to look through the glove box since the car was unlocked. He was either looking to use one of the napkins Karen left in there, or he decided he didn't need a copy of New Life Church's acoustic CD. Nothing is missing.

He could at least have taken the can to recycle for a dime.

Maybe if you squint?

If you ask me, from far away, it looks like these boxes read "Morning Sucks"

Morning STicks sucks
Also, since when are graham crackers breakfast food?

Karen - You'll Come

Video day! Karen does Hillsong's You'll Come at a retreat last fall. Sorry for the skip, the audible person near me, and the weird letterboxing.

UMMA 3: Seriously?

Explain to me how two bulbs hanging by extension cords can be art but this stool isn't.

Also, I wonder if they buy more bulbs at Meijer or something. I mean I'm sure that these haven't been shining since 1991. If I were the artist, I think I would make it so one is always on and one is always off. Or make them flicker or something.

UMMA 2: Gesture-based computing table

This table at the Museum of Art allows multiple users to manipulate images and data by gesturing over the table. Bringing your fingers together is a gesture that the computer realizes means you want to pick something up.
