Because I can't think of anything to write.

First, before I offer any explanation for the picture to the left, I need to let everyone know that the Mr. T gadget is gone. I never really warmed up to it, and it looked like it was getting ready to die anyway. Apparently I'm a gadget killer. I'll be surprised if I ever mention Mr. T in this blog again.

Ok. I'm in one of those situations where I cant think of anything to write, but I want to write something. I feel the urge. I feel the need. Usually when this happens I'll post one of my "stuff around the house" posts, but that requires that I take a picture of something, and I don't FEEL like it. I'm in a lazy, unmotivated, uninspired mood.

So I just grabbed a picture off my computer. I've had this picture for a long time, stuck in a folder along with other pictures of that ilk. I have no idea where it came from, how I came to possess it, or what it means, or if there somebody out there who actually created it and cares. I just thought it was interesting, and frequently that's the only reason I need to snag something and stick it in a folder, knowing that months later I'll probably look at it & think about it again.

Sometimes I make up histories for & motivations behind stuff like this, but I haven't for this one. I just like to look at it every now and then. I like the colors.

Weird how you gadget keep dying. At least you weren't attached to that one.

What a strange pic! My first reaction to it was "WTF?".

What is..ilk?

I also snag pics cause they are cool or interestingly strange.

Heather: Yes, it is strange about my gadgets. I really do miss the weather one. WTF is as good a reaction as any to that picture. Ilk just means I have a lot of semi-similar stuff. Thanks for the comments!

linlah: Mr. T said some off the wall stuff, that's for sure. Or at least someone wrote some off the wall stuff for him to say.

Why do we never hear "On The Wall", always "Off The Wall"?
