Answering a question you probably never asked yourself

my angry brain

The idea popped into my head this morning, “wouldn’t it be really funny to have this brain and it, like, opens and it’s all fangs and snarly and stuff? Wouldn’t that be hilarious?”

Well, there it is. And I think you’ll agree, the answer is no. Oh, dear sweet Jesus no. There is nothing funny about it.

Eh. You should have seen the color version.

You’re welcome.

Jeez, Weas, that is creepy as hell. And I’m not exaggerating. You’d think by your description that it would be fluffy and bouncy and have little liquid brown brain eyes and cute little brain lips and little cute wet brain nose.

But no. Oh. My. God.

What have you been doing to yourself lately?

Oooh, pnb is all squinty now. Having a “Y” chromosome, I am, like most other testosteronally-poisoned members of our society totally clueless as to the exact interpretation of the squint but we are universally afraid of it.

I’m getting out of the way just in case. πŸ™‚

Eh. You know how it is. Sometimes it looks hy-sterical in your head, but somehow the reality just isn’t the same. I don’t usually share my terrifying failures, but I got nothin’ today. Yardwork and Linux.

Some days, somebody should just take my Photoshop away from me.

Nothing skeery here LK, just wondering if she is still on cold medicine or something.

How about this…*looks at weasel and blinks*

Scubafreak, you’re right. That is EXACTLY where it looks like it belongs. Put a cape on that sucker and we have arrived.

pnb, I’m guessing she stopped taking benadryl and switched to drixoral. I see “shadow people” on that stuff.

Heh. I was watching an MST3K last night. Maybe that did it.

Can we please see the color version?

I don’t want to but I have to. It’s like the car wreck as you drive by. I don’t want to look and neither does anyone else but there’s this morbid fascination.

I also vote for seeing it in color, as much as we may regret it later on. Life simply wouldn’t be complete.

Well, I often expect to see some pretty weird stuff when I get here but this one kind of blinded me temporarily.

Then I started really looking at it, and then it started looking cool.

Now it makes me laugh, ’cause I can see them flying around attacking people. The movie: “Attack of the Flying Brains” I can picture that bit of campiness in my mind.

Stoatie, my favorite was always “The deadly Mantis”….

Some of the older Godzillas were pretty good too. I wish they were still on the air, there is LOTS of good material for them these days (especially with SciFi doing their own made for tv movies….)

Don’t be, Musli. I did about half the work on it after I took the color out (it’s harder to work with a color image), so it’s even lamer. But the whole pink/beige thing is really disturbing, so I kept it.

Ooooo, I just got an e-mail with a great subject line. OK it’s inside mathematics but…

“Eulerian Payoff!” Followed by the usual, you know what I mean. I wonder what Lagrange or Gauss is offering?

I have to say, the pic also reminds me of John Carpenters ‘The Thing’, where the dog in the kennel splits its face open, drops its skull, and proceeds to try to devour the other dogs with hundreds of slimey tentacles…

Gunslinger aka The Dark Tower series – I finally finished it a few months ago. At the end of it I cursed Stephen King’s name and vowed never to read another one of his books ever. SK wrote himself into a corner and he totally copped out.

It’s not so much that I think you’ll be interested in my working method. It’s more that I want you to know what goes on in my head ALL THE TIME.

I think it’s awesome, Weasel. πŸ™‚

But then again, I’m the woman whose husband got her a subscription to a website that would make stuffed animals into… things… and send them to you. My favorite is a bunny rabbit with a fangy critter skull for a face, kind of like a skull in a bunny hood. I wish I could remember the name of the website. They came very cleverly packaged with adoption notes and such.

I’ve probably told this story before, but the closest I ever saw my sweet little old gray-haired mother come to pissing herself in public…we were in a pawn shop in Lebanon, Tennessee and we suddenly realized the mounted deer head on the wall behind the counter had been given snarly bobcat teeth. Laugh? Hoo!

Man, I wanted that thing. Not for sale πŸ™

Speaking of bunnies (someone is, somewhere), I see some unusual stuff on my morning rounds. Coyotes, possums, rackety coons, people screwing in the street, etc. This morning it was bunnies. Not your usual wild hare, the gray ones, but a whole herd of fluffy white bunnies, grazing on some rich dude’s lawn.

Here in the tropics, it’s not unusual for mushrooms to spring up overnight, and some of them get pretty big, and at first that’s what I thought I was seeing. Big white things. But these were moving. I had to back up and put the headlights on them to be sure. Bunnies, sure enough.

Early Easter bunnies maybe?

I keep a basket of squishy stress relief thingys in my office of all shapes, sizes and colors. I loves me some stress relief squeezies. Anyway, one of them was given to me by an ex-boyfriend who was a university professor. It’s a squishy brain from the Harvard Brain Tissue Resource Center. No fangs though. You could put one through a finger, I suppose.

Having a squishy brain stress relief thingy begs a buncho questions. Why would a brain tissue resource center want to advertise by giving out squishy brains – or anything for that matter?

The place my stuffed critters came from was http: //www.morbidtendencies.com. Stupid filter here at work won’t let me go there due to “violence, gruesome images.”

I don’t remember gruesome images unless you consider altered stuffed animals gruesome… but I may be misremembering.
