comments: so playing with the visible light filter was fun. we learned stuff. for example, these glasses blocked infrared light. however, these these ones did not. thus making people look like english teachers. click the pic to see how the very same glasses could turn someone from a rock star to a psycho killer. wow. the power of infrared.

rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: spiritualized
comments: when I left the baby shower on the weekend, I got lotsa food to take home with me. yay. now click on the pic to see kitty's glowing pink. hello kitty's!

I also had:

a grapefruit.
comments: for those of you who don't know, I started yet another blog-like thingy. this one is a tumblr. you can click the grapefruit to see it. I have to thank kill bill for writing the app that's doing all the posting. you see, that's the best part of this tumblr... I never need to post to it! the way it works is that every 6 hours, bill's app grabs a wiggly from my flickr account, and posts it. it's starting from my oldest wigglies on flickr. and if I were to stop making wigglies right now (which I think is impossible) there will still be enough to keep that tumblr going for 1.3 years. if you happen to be a tumblr, too, follow me, and I'll follow you.
