I made fried okra for the first time tonight! It took forever to clean up! Told partner no more fried foods unless we get a Fry Baby-olator machine!

Nay, good sir, for the time of falling leaves and apple picking 'tis my very favorite season of the year. Instead, I shall celebrate with you the gathering of sweaters and piping hot mugs of tea and cry aloud to the peoples, "Autumn! Autumn! All hail the return of Autumn!"

There's this recent commercial for Seaworld (that I can"t find or I'd share it), but I see it online and when watching shows on AP or Hulu, and it is some uncanny valley shit.

It bugs the F out of me because I feel like someone did some facial CGI with these kid's faces. One little boy watching a parade with Bert & Ernie, and when they wave to him, the kid's expression morphs into the sleazy wild grin of a douchebro frat guy at Hooter's. Then a little girl, while watching sea creatures cavort gaily, her face starts in a normal grin and then smears into the face of an Oprah audience member getting a new car, tears brimming eyes and lower lip trembling.

I find it distracting and distasteful, but maybe that's just me.

Oooh, house boat down the canyon is one of my bucket trips. You got such nice shots - the one at Checkerboard Cliffs is my fav, that's a must print! I thought the red identity-hiding smudge was a brightly colored serape that you were jauntily wearing.
