Random Thursday: Weird Sights and Odd Favorites

Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.

Just what it says on the tin.


Who vs. Groot

I saw Guardians of the Galaxy this past Friday.

I laughed.  I groaned.  I cried. I laughed.  I LOVED.

I’ve been talking about it, quoting from it,
and obsessing about Lee Pace’s chronic lack of blink rate ever since
and telling all my friend that they Must See This Movie,
if only to witness the deep bromance
between a sentient Tree and his enhanced Raccoon.

One of those friends countered with this
and a brief statement claiming primary dibs on Karen Gillian:

Guardians Who

Her argument is valid.

But so is mine.

(I wouldn’t stand in line for three days to see this, Vonnie—I’d use a TARDIS)


Janie’s iPod Wallpaper


I was afraid to ask.

So I didn’t.



My husband found this video and has landed himself a new DYI project!

Pocket doors are so 19th Century . . . .

As an aside, Klemens Torggler, the company, is now on my list of Best Names Ever.

And not just bcause it sounds like what you do when a key gets stuck in a lock.


Meet Shoe Shoot?

What does this unsuspecting man on an elevator

Escalator Dragon2

And this wide-eyed dragon

Escalator Dragon1

Have in common?

And then stay a while and enjoy the wacky weltschmerz!

Sunny’s Favorite Video

My baby is a DC girl.

I don’t know where I went wrong.

This is still pretty funny, though.

    • It’s totally practical! It saves the swing space of regular doors! Because “swing space” is totally a professional door term! Probably! 😀

      • My first thought was–what happens if you push on it, thinking it’s a regular door? What if you get a sleeve caught in it while it’s moving?

        This may be because doors are generally not my friends.

        • Heck, I do that all the time, anyway—pull when I should push, push when I should pull, and my superpower is hooking stuff over doorknobs. 🙂

          Doors in general are not friendly beings, I think.
