The Nutty Professor Does Karaoke

A few days before school was out, Buddy brought home a little goodie bag of candies and such from his teacher. Included in the bag was a rubber ducky.

It's about the weirdest ducky toy I've seen. Yesterday evening, the Evil Twin and I were talking about it.

ETW: This thing is weird. What is it? He's got these crazy hypnotic eyes thing going on and he's holding a microphone.

TET: Uhhh, that's a TEST TUBE.

ETW: Oh! That makes sense then.

TET: What? Did you think he was a fucking American Idol contestant?

In other news, I received a lovely award from Honeywine! I was chagrined when I noticed that she was not on my blogroll, even though I read her blog every day. I thought she was, but then again, I also thought a toy rubber duck was holding a microphone. The award is:

How cute is that? I guess I need to spread the lurve. Will do, end of blog.
My submission to my photo group in the landscape category was this:

A few days later, Buzzardbilly called and told me about fog rolling out of the valleys, so I also took this:

Both are views from my front yard. The first one I tweaked a bit in Picasa. The 2nd one, I only resized. I'm lucky to have such a view.

I'm not going to do links for the award - y'all can find them all at the blogroll to the right, listed under "Other Pit Stops".

In no particular order:

  1. You've got great views from your yard.

    Like a vacation every day!

  2. Great pictures!

    I keep getting these awards and when I re-do my blog layout, I'm going to have to put them up.

    Thanks for the embarrasses me but it does mean a lot to me.


  3. Many thanks for the award. Does it come with an evil mad scientist ducky by any chance??? Just wondering...

  4. Juanuchis - you're welcome!

    K - yes, it is like a vacation. You must come visit.

    BG - Awwww. It embarrasses you that I love you?

    Ron - get your own damn ducky! LOL.

  5. You have an be-a-u-tiful view, you lucky girl!

    No such luck over here. :)

  6. That is a sweet view!!!

    Those duckies must be trendy. I got an Irish ducky for St. Patty's Day from one of my students.

    Mea Culpa! I admit I read your twitter this morning. I try to catch lots of stuff from the Surf Reporter crowd. Surf Reporters are such an interesting bunch!

  8. Hey, that is a fine duck! My wife collects those things ever since we stayed in a hotel with a jacuzzi and they leave one in there as a gift/promotional thing. Now we have lots.

    Just a word of caution: try to avoid having that microphone/test tube thingy go up your butt when you sit in the tub too fast.

    Hey, that is too kind of you to mention my blog amongst others you visit. I'm just a goofy guy writing about my neighborhood. Many thanks.

  9. AWWWWWWWWW! How sweet. Thanks from the bottom of my heart for the award. You rock!

    That duck is really weird. Maybe he's dr. jekyll about to turn to mr. hyde?

  10. I am so tired right now. Just getting to sit down to read (after starting way earlier and having the day spin out of control with busy).

    Thanks! Sorry I wasn't here earlier to see it.

  11. Rise and shine, sunshine! Some of us are waiting for a morning update. :-)

    Yeah, I know, I need a life.

  12. That is an odd duck. HA! I crack me up! What nobody else? Eh, it was a long weekend. ;)
