No, I haven't fallen off the face of the planet

Also known as, "Where in the world am I?

That became my catch phrase while I was away. "Where in the world am I?" Intellectually I knew I was in Pisa, Italy but nothing mentally prepared me for seeing these things in person. My brain grappled with reconciling known 2D images to what I was seeing in person but I was left in awe.

Music MixUp Mania

Lately, I've had a lot of songs running through my head. None of these songs are the original versions and that's what I find fairly fascinating.

"Hurt" was originally a Trent Reznor song but I love what Johnny Cash did with it.

Running Around Like A Chicken With Its Head Cut Off

When I was growing up my mom was always saying, "There you go again, running around like a chicken with it's head cut off." I don't even know what that means. I've just always imagined it as a very energetic, messy and directionless activity. These past few weeks have been just like that. When I saw these metal chickens at Stewarts I was immediately reminded of BeyoncĂ©, the Big Metal Chicken courtesy of The Bloggess. I'm fully convinced these little guys are her distant English cousins.
