I found this on Flickr, via some very random connections in my head... don't ask. But it's been found nonetheless! It's an image of Dubain in the morning, taken from the 33rd floor of the Emirates Towers.

the funniest halloween

I read this on a post about halloween costumes:

'I'm gonna wear something slutty looking (slip, fishnets, etc) and wear a nametag that says "Hello My Name Is: Your Mom".'

    Today I got to go see Alicia, my college roomate of four years, and meet her new (actually three-month-old) baby boy, Joshua. It was soooooooooo much fun. After living together for four years, I feel like we're sisters!... of course, Alicia actully has sisters, and I'm sure it's completely different :)

    When Mathilda was only seven years old, her favorite pet caterpillar died. His name was fuzzbutt, and he was a bald, green, slimy thing. Such a devastating event would crush even the strongest of children... and Mathilda wasn't strong. Now, when she walks, she shuffles her feet everywhere she goes because she is too sad to even try to lift them. Why even bother?

    In an effort to leave her sad world behind, Mathilda became obsessed with flight. She wanted to fly far away from where she was, and discover new, amazing things!

    As she grew older, and her knowledge of physics grew, she realized that one could fly by filling a sack with hot air. She became quite happy, almost to the point of delirium, and was very excited about her discovery and tried to patent her idea, but soon found that this science had been discovered hundreds of years ago.

    And, so, she was still sad.

    Filabuster talks quite a bit more than any respectful soft toy would. He likes to carry a milk crate with him wherever he goes. When asked about it, he says "a milk crate serves many purposes. When I feel a discourse coming on, I can place it on the ground, and perch on top of it. If I have too many groceries, I can carry them in it... And also, when I'm out of milk, I can go to the milk factory and get some milk. You know?"

    But no, no one really knows what he means.
