Blame It On The Moon

Today was not my day. Nothing tragic; nothing major - really - it was just one of those days where things seemed consistently off kilter. Take the photo above. That was supposed to be a wide shot of our snow covered lawn in full moon glow, with sharp tree shadows across glistening, lustrous snow. Not even the tripod and experimenting with lots of different settings would allow the camera to absorb what my eyes were seeing.

Then there was the disappointment over on Twitter. Yesterday it appeared as if the Dalai Lama had joined Twitter. Today we found out it was a hoax. Call me silly, but I thought it was wicked cool that His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet was going to be Tweeting!

And of course, there was the “Great Glue Mess of 2009”. This afternoon, one (pretty old) plastic bottle of glue fell from a height of less than three feet and shattered, spreading glue absolutely EVERYwhere across wide pine floorboards! What was truly odd, was that both Chuck and I heard it happen off in the other room and all the cats were accounted for.

Maybe so.
Or perhaps just that old devil moon...

maybe it was an earthquake?

Hi B2B -
Well, we do get earthquakes around here, but nowhere near as often or as severe as you do in California.
Not sure which I prefer as the culprit: earthquake or gremlins!
