First of all, my friend sent me a fun thing to do on Facebook, which I am going to post here for all of my Photoshop savvy readers. My "random" results were quite interesting. You take a bunch of random links through which you get the name of a band, and the name of an album, and an image, and put it together. The photo I posted tonight was my band and album, and what a hoot. Here are the directions if you want to play:
1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random...or go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 - Go to http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.
I just got home from a fun Fat Tuesday party. I met a couple who has been together 65 years. The husband, Norm, a retired Navy man, was getting up early to go downhill skiing tomorrow. He took it up in his 60's. I asked him what his advice was to live a long and healthy life. He said: "there are 24 hours in a day. Divide it into 3 segments. 8 hours of it are spent sleeping. Make sure you have a very good bed. The second 8 are spent working at a job; make sure that you love what you do. The last 8 are spent with my wife; I picked the right woman."
I asked his wife how they both survived 65 years, and she said with a twinkle in her eye: "we spent the entire time holding hands so that we didn't hit one another". Of course she was joking, but I am sure that there was some truth to it.
So off I head to bed to get a recap on Obama's speech, and to spend the last 1/3 of my day in a warm and cozy bed holding my husband's hand. It's all good.
