The Dude turned 40 today so Cruel Wife and I – along with four or five other couples – joined him and his wife celebrating his birthday. It was some good food but by far was the appetizer – fried calamari. It was perfect. Not a hint of a rubber band within 3000 miles. The jambalaya wasn’t sitting well with me and CW’s crab cakes and stuffed flounder were OK but I’ll be honest, the crab cakes weren’t crispy-cakey enough to be crab cakes. Oh well, it was all fresh, however, and that counts for so very much.
Congratulations to SOYLENT GREEN for the one-millionth visitor! WARNING, IT IS (not, not, not) NSFW – DON’T GO THERE ON COMPANY TIME. Whups, neither is the graphic below, if you get right down to it. I am making an exception here. SOYLENT is well known for a few things, some of which are NSFW, some of which are science-ey, and other which are anti-AGW – specifically he likes to trash global warmalarmists who would love to trash anyone who gets in the way of their power grab. I support him in that.
I do graphics for cbullitt sometimes and he said “Lemur, I’ve come close to 1 million times, and I need a graphic to make it pop.” Well, he didn’t word it just like that but the idea was there. So there’s the graphic I did for him, made up of a collage of other graphics I’ve done when he’s come up with an interesting notion. This was a fun one because it just came to me how to do it – I was clueless for quite a few hours – and the ideas just gushed forth.
