Maximum Acceleration

It’s been another week of zoom zoom but I’m all right with the winters flying on by. Especially when we’ve got interesting things to look forward to, such as:

  • Vegan Bake Sales for Haiti are being held all over the country. We’re having ours, Twin Cities style, on Saturday January 30th.
  • That same Saturday is a Saint Paul Saints special event - the World’s Coldest Game of Baseball. “Entrance is FREE and patrons are encouraged to support Second Harvest Heartland by donating cash, food and warm clothing. Because sometimes giving back is a worthy adventure in itself.” We’ll see just how cold it is that day. It’s been relatively mild lately, for Minnesota in January, but that could change.
  • Next month Jennifer Jajeh’s tragicomic solo show, “I Heart Hamas: And Other Things I’m Afraid to Tell You” will be on at the Bedlam Theatre, February 18th-28th. Definitely checking that out.

And now some random items of note:

  • As a Sleep Talkin’ Woman with a Sleep Talkin’ Son, I can totally relate to this Sleep Talkin’ Man (even if his tales may seem a tad bit, well, tall).
  • Today I’ve been listening to a lot of Ultravox. Listening to the song Blue Light, in particular, while looking at this animated booth babe = total convergence.
  • This is incredibly moving. “Photography by blind people: How can you use a camera if you can’t see? Over 30 blind and visually impaired adults from the UK, Mexico and China have been trained in sensory photography techniques to create and experience photos.” If you’re going to be in London from January 19th - 23rd, Sights Unseen will be at The Association of Photographers Gallery in central London.
  • More reasons why Clockwork is a most awesome place to work With many photos taken by me! But all those babies are so much bigger now! Thankfully a fresh batch of Clockworklings will be hatching soon.
  • The world is my hat! I’m in love with this Domokun style animated short, Git Gob. “Two creatures wonder, ‘What is a hole?’ They have different points of view. Their debate leads to an idea, an idea that changes the world. This is a story of practical magic.”

This morning a co-worker noticed the new red highlights in my hair and asked if I’d sustained a head injury. A zippy comeback didn’t come to me until much later. Next time I’m setting my phasers to stun.

I washed that gray right out of my hair. With hair color.

    Whenever you talk about Clockwork, I think, “I want to work there!”

    Wesley LOVED Git Gob. He made me bookmark it.

    Clockwork is seriously the best workplace ever. I even toyed with the idea of temporarily moving in when my internet service was out at home.

    And I wanna hug Git Gob!
