I don't really know what I am musing on these days. It's more like an irregular stream of consciousness thing...it seems to be working.

This Week's Gallery of the Curious

I was up to 2 odd sightings yesterday and wondering where to get the third, and lo and behold, out for dinner in Palo Alto and I saw it. The universe is good, sometimes.

1) At least five, possibly six crows hopping around a front lawn in Redwood City on our school run. Just hanging out. But...ominously. Wouldn't that freak you out a bit, to look out your front window and see a murder of crows pecking around? Then again, maybe they were the pets of the resident(s). In which case...I'm still freaked out. When I was teaching, the bike cage was right outside my classroom and there was this crow (possibly a progenitor of said murder? Trippy....) who would perch on top and just...stare. At me. In my classroom. It was exceedingly disconcerting.

2) Lakeshore Pony Baseball: seen as a sticker on a truck window. Now, I really had to think about this one a bit. Is it baseball on ponies? American polo, if you will? Is it ponies playing baseball? Is it baseball for the entertainment of ponies? These are valid questions, people.

3) A man riding a penny farthing down University Avenue in Palo Alto. With halogen lights wrapped around the structural bits. It was rather surreal, and yet, utterly cheer-inducing.

So, there you have it. Not the strangest of the strange, but strange enough, and I have to say, I have had more and more of these experiences, where over the course of a day or two, I see a handful of really...weird...things. Should I be paranoid?

Also -- Radio Hanukkah on XM Satellite Radio. I am inordinately pleased with this fact. The music is the schlockiest of schlock, but that just makes it all that much better. Eight crazy nights of this! Oh. I feel bad now. For the people in Mountain Time, they are singing the blessing over the candles. I think Y-H-W-H might strike me down. Heh. Now it's "Hanukkids!!. The gelt is singing to us.

I am in love.

Update: So even I can't listen to Hanukkids all night long, but! I did find a box of potato pancake mix in the cupboard, and jerry rigged some applesauce (from...real apples), threw on some plain yogurt and voila! Goyishe latkes! I even remembered all the words to "S'vivon". We then lit candle one on the Advent wreath, and ate chocolate from the Advent calendar. Nothing but diversity and religious plurality around here, folks.
