The Planet Uranus in my pancake this morning.
Alien sightings? Yes, I’ve had one.
This is one of those moments that you look away, and then look back and you see something completely wild!
I had actually prepped this pancake for the dousing of syrup and butter before looking back at it again (what do you think I do with these pancakes? lol) and I saw this face staring back at me. It wasn’t just any face, but an alien face. So of course I wanted to share this with you all – alien sightings- in my pancake. You know, since that whole Mayan Calendar / end of the world thingy didn’t happen I’m sure everyone go back to their favorite pastimes: Looking for aliens and finding bigfoot. Sorry Mayans, you had your shot. Alien sightings have been around far too long throughout world history and once we get over 2012, we’ll probably have more.
However, I can’t tell if this would be one those short little aliens or one of “The Greys“.
Alien sightings, for many people actually happen in the middle of the night, not in the mornings, so I’m lucky to have had this one (Yeah, I’m having fun with this).
It kinda looks like that alien in “Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull“.
As a reminder, you can buy a print of this photo.
A Happy New Year for 2013
I want to make sure I wish all of you a safe and Happy New Year! May your homes celebrate the coming of 2013 with love and hope, peace and charity, and determination to succeed in a whole new year. And if you have any alien sightings of your own, well, run. Better yet, zig-zag.
With everything that has happened in the past few weeks around the Newtown, Connecticut Shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, I want to dedicate this piece to each and every family that lost a child in that horrific shooting. Words cannot truly express the feeling I’m sure they’re feeling, but I am a man of faith, and I know that prayer changes things and heals. I saw a heart in this pancake this morning. What an excellent find! At least to me. A heart in the Christmas season is something we all need as we hope to enter 2013. So yeah, that’s what I saw this morning.
So I looked at this pancake this morning and realized that to me, it looked like a giant button. Button making is not my forte as you could imagine, but when I found some clipart of a button on the internet you can see the similarities:
I really hope that you’ve enjoyed this fun-loving work I’ve done on this blog this year and I look forward to more discoveries in 2013.
And speaking of buttons, have you heard about the latest way to fix a broken one that has popped off your shirt or jeans? It’s called the Tic Fastener. According to Gizmodo, “Tic fasteners provide an instant and permanent solution to the problem.Invented in Sweden by Karolina Rantfors, Ljubo Mrnjavac, and Mats Gabrielsson, the Tic looks like a staple remover, but the claw-like tool actually makes it easy to install plastic fasteners that permanently hold a button in place. You just align its fangs with the button’s holes, squeeze it closed so the ends of the plastic rivets connect, and then twist off the applicator. The results are hard to distinguish from thread, and at $7.50 for a pack of four…”
Ah yes, the interesting world of the button industry!
So I’m looking at this pancake today and was like, it looks like a fish, but what kind? Then I turned the pan to make sure I didn’t burn anything and realized it was a mermaid! The bottom portion looks like a fin while the top portion looks like a body of some sort. It was an amazing find and I’m glad to share this with you!
Even though the US government has declared that mermaids aren’t real, people still keep their eyes peeled out there on the seas for them. Did you check out TV movie Mermaids: The Body Found? I watched it, but subjects like this you need to bring back on in an aquarium for me (lol). But hey, everyone has the right to dream.
I hope everyone is having a great holiday season and Merry Christmas to you if you don’t hear from me by then. I’ll be posting as much as I can when I see interesting things as usual, but enjoy your families and take time out and reflect on your life and live it to the fullest. It’s too short. I guess that’s why this blog means a lot to me. I take time out and find things in the simplest of products that make art.
