You’re Probably Around My Age If...

...costumes like these were around for Halloween when you were a kid:

Remember Mr. T's famous line: "I don't hate him but...I pity the fool"?

Did David Hasselhoff  who played Michael Knight on this show really not have a neck?

I don't think anyone wanted to be John Travolta this badly!

And you’re probably around my age if you wore, or someone you know wore one of these face masks:

Who wouldn't want to look like a creepy and angry princess?

I remember this one very well.

Creepy clowns are always around...from generation to generation.

What the heck...??

Oh no just can't do this to Wonder Woman!

Costumes were pretty weird when I was a kid, but they were even weirder before they were mass-produced. Take a look...if you dare...

Wishing you all a spooktacular weekend!

Hometown Memories: The Pervert On The Bus

My adolescent years consisted mostly of good times. A few bad. And the occasional downright creepy. And one of those creepy moments happened on a city bus that my mother and I boarded on our way to wherever it is we were going so many years ago. The bus was very crowded that day, and we were packed in like sardines in a can. This is pretty typical in a big city, especially during rush hour.

Right behind me there stood a man reaching over to hold onto the same pole I was. Whenever the bus stopped abruptly, he’d bump into me, and when new passengers boarded, he’d lean in closer. At first, I didn't think anything of it; there was hardly any breathing room, after all, and I figured he was just making room for people to get by.

But I was wrong.

I boarded a bus on this corner countless times.

His breathing grew heavy at one point, and the next time he bumped me, he moaned in my ear and rubbed up against me. Shocked, disgusted and outraged, I did what my teenage self thought was the best thing to do:

I stomped the high heel I was wearing right down on his foot with furious force and ground it in...back and forth...back and forth. End of moaning, heavy breathing and inappropriate rubbing. He let out a whimper of pain and quietly slithered away.

High heels make for great self defense weapons. Which this creep learned that day.

Has anything like this ever happened to you?

If a creepy guy rubs up against you, stomp on his instep to cause maximum pain.

Question Of The Day

What would you cure the world of if you could?

One of the biggest enemies of humanity:

Yes, discrimination is a worldwide disease that needs to be cured. And until such time, peace and goodwill that we pay lip service to every December will not prevail.

What would you cure the world of if you could?

Worldwide Photo Walk

“Photography for me is a passion, a mixture of science and art that creates magic.
- Scott MacQuarrie -

On Saturday, October 11, the Worldwide Photo Walk took place; a annual social event where photographers of all skill levels gather in their local area for a two hour photo shoot. Hundreds of cities and towns, and thousands of people around the globe participate each year. It's free and it's fun, and this time around I decided to join in on this one-day global event.

I’d like to share a few photos that I took around my beautiful city that Saturday morning.

If you enjoy taking photos, consider joining in on the fun next year in your own area. It doesn't matter what kind of camera you use, or what skill level you are. All you need is passion and enthusiasm for photography.

Have a beautiful Tuesday!

Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, everyone. How was your weekend? Ours was half bleh and half wonderful. Most of the week has been miserable. So with a cold but wonderfully sunny day finally showing up yesterday, we headed out to enjoy it and take images. But the autuman splendour is just about done. There was more of this than anything else:

Well, at least we got out. Then we all went for supper to a restaurant near our place. It was busy and the service was ve-e-e-ry slow. A couple of booths down there was a woman sipping a glass of wine as she waited for her food. She finished the wine. No food. Then most of her glass of water. Still no food. Her meal finally arrived when the lemon in her glass of water began disintegrating. And she ate without a drink. Without the glass of wine that she probably planned on enjoying with her meal.  This made me sad for some reason. *sigh*

First world problems...

Anyhow, let’s get to the funny stuff...

Wishing you all a fabulous day!
