Journal Wrecking Ahoy

I completed two more pages in my Wreck This Journal. On the first page, I did a little drumming with some colored pencils. 

I thought it was kind of interesting how the mostly-warm colors section, which I did with my dominant hand, consists of consistently small dots, while the mostly-cool colors section, which I did with my non-dominant hand, had streaks of widely-varying size. But this might also have had something to do with the way I was holding the book down. I was holding it with my feet. I can't guarantee it was held still.

The book didn't say I had to stick this page back in once I'd torn it out and crumpled it, but I did anyway. I'm glad I did, because it showed something quite curious: at some point during the crumpling process, this page shrank. It is now much smaller than the other pages. I'm still working out the physics on this one.

Little Einsteins

Once the Little Einsteins theme song gets stuck in your head, it never goes away. It doesn't matter if you've never even seen the show before. It never goes away.

Especially if you work at a space museum.

If you've never heard the song and you'd like to get it permanently stuck in your head, here it is in six different languages!

And just for kicks and giggles, here's a remix version with over 35 million views on YouTube:

Now we can all have it stuck in our heads together.

I Saved You From Moldy Tomatoes

I threw away the moldiest tomatoes earlier. They were gross. They had giant pits full of mold. Orange mold. Black mold. White mold. They were soft and squishy. The mold was only growing on the bottom, so I didn't see it until I picked up a tomato to look at it, after which I screamed and dropped it.

I almost took a picture to post on this blog, just so you could see how moldy these tomatoes were. But then I thought to myself, "Naaahh, I'm not going to unleash that mess on the Internet. I'm not gonna do that to my readers."

I spared you. Because I care.

(And before you go judging me for having rotten produce in my refrigerator, I share that fridge with three other people. I'm only going to accept a quarter of the blame.)

Anyone for a Mars Burger?

Just a little down-time doodle referencing one of the simulators at work.
