Butterfly, Day Three

I moved the butterfly onto a potted plant – it’s still alive and isn’t moving much.

Butterfly, Day 2

I was able to (at around 8 AM) capture a video of the butterfly on my window. Sorry that it’s a little dark, but as the day progresses, even more light accumulates behind it, making for an even darker butterfly. As of now, WordPress doesn’t like embedded video, so click HERE for it.

UPDATE – 12:09 PM – The butterfly fell off the window and is sitting in a groove below it. Let’s hope it survives.

So richly, brightly, dazzling yellow…

…against the background of a snowy afternoon, the butterfly clings to the window. Moving ever so slightly and ever so slowly, its compound eyes seek the great outdoors, the frigid snowbank of its death.


Now that I’m done being poetic…this butterfly appeared on my window. I have no idea how it got there. So I figured that I’d snap a few shots. Pretty odd, huh? Has that ever happened to you?

I’m done. With NaNoWriMo. At 50,211 words. Here.


That’s all for now. Sorry for the less-than-serious post, but hey, I’ve been working all month at this!

A Skeleton in the Closet

A curator has rediscovered a nearly complete giant Barosaurus skeleton hidden for years in museum drawers.

Finally, a skeleton that was found in the closet. Fine, it’s a drawer. You know what I mean.

Sorry for the short post – NaNoWriMo is eating up most of my time.

Human Rights Advancement!

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 — The House approved a bill this evening granting broad protections against discrimination in the workplace for gay men, lesbians and bisexuals, a measure that supporters praised as the most important civil rights legislation since the adoption of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990 but that opponents said would result in unnecessary lawsuits.

Finally! So now the House has finally realized that everyone deserves equal rights! What did it say in the Declaration of Indepndence again? “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal…”

And let’s take a look at the Constitution, at the 14th amendmant – “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

So what do you think?

Newsweek reported something about this here. Admittidely, I did have to misspell Giuliani’s – do you want another example? Seach Clinton and you get…Clinton, Clinton, and John McCain. Click here for the image.

Again? The first result for Obama is…Hillary. Click here for the image.

And you’re probably wondering what’s on the page of McCain. Well, there’s McCain, Global Warming, MynOcular, Zazzle, Comedy Central, and the IISTL. Click here for the image.
