Doodle #544 – You’ll be AMAZED

Ever notice how some people only know two adjectives? Well, you will now, because I pointed it out.

Doodle #543 – Not again!?

Sorry to end the week on such an upsetting note. I really hope this doesn’t ruin your weekend.

Doodle #542 – Sad Chaps

What is bumming out these monsters? A pudding shortage? A new tax on trout husbandry?

We’re anything but sad at my house. It’s finally the Last Day of School ™, so summer can officially be officially here. Thanks for not rubbing it in that YOUR summer started ages ago.

Doodle #541 – And pony rides

FINALLY it’s the last week of school for my son. Four more days. That’s a long four days when it’s already, officially, summer (for real).

I’m spending those four days figuring out when and how I’ll get work done from now until September. As well as preparing bribes for myself so I’ll actually get business-related work done instead of just staying home every day and digging into my large stack of library books. I love my job, but I’m awfully fond of reading and lazing around and making excuses to go get ice cream, too.

But isn’t that pretty much what summer is about?

Doodle #540 – Obviously

If I had a dress like that, I’d wear it all the time. Of course, it wouldn’t look as good without the crown and boots, but I think I could make it work.

Doodle #539 – And maybe a cookie, too.

I forget what exactly made me doodle this, but I’m feeling less demanding at the moment.

Doodle #538 – Move Along

Just a talking fish on a cloud on a six legged snake in the snow in the dark. Totally unremarkable. Move along

Doodle #537 – NEWS FLASH!

So. There’s this monthly local paper in my area that’s sometimes highly informative, but mostly unintentionally amusing. I always read it cover to cover looking for the interesting bits. Usually it’s just entertaining letters from grouchy townsfolk, but this current issue has a photo of a man and a pineapple plant he grew.

There’s no story, just the photo of the man and his plant, a title and a caption. I don’t know who this guy is, or why his pineapple growing skills are worthy of a newspaper picture. I kept looking for mention of the photo in other articles in the paper, but there was nothing. SO confusing.

Since I use doodles to try and make sense of my world, I decided to make a doodle of the picture in hopes it would help me understand it. I copied the picture to the best of my abilities, with some artistic interpretation (the local guy wasn’t wearing a pink and orange striped maxi skirt), added the title and caption, and … I’m just as confused.

Doodle #536 – My cabbages!

Well, I don’t know what that thing is, but it sure is happy about the cabbage display.

Or maybe it’s just a fan of Avatar.

Doodle #535 – Ill-fated mango

This is one of the doodles that didn’t go on the mango page of the book I’m working on.

How’s that for cultivating mystery?
