Meme – in Search of the One Word Answer

Detail of Chihuly Art Glass Sculpture

I needed something to post. This great glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly could easily have merited the entire post, but then Amuirin – that girl is always full of ideas – posted this crazy meme. It is supposed to be a one word answer meme, though I’m terrible at following rules, so I’ll give it a go, but no one-word promises.

Well, I was looking for a likely spot of procrastination. Almost anything would have qualified. My new washing machine to replace that blankity-blank one hasn’t even made its warehouse appearance yet and I’ve been without a washer for over a week and it was Thanksgiving and I had a houseful of overnight company  and there are “linens and things” to launder and I simply don’t wanna go to the laundromat.

Ah, pay attention.  Procrastination is a fine art.

Join the fun if you wish. Use these questions or make up your own like Amuirin and I did.  I am non-celebrating the first day of December in Wisconsin with snow, dark clouds, more snow, slippery streets, gray, gray, gray. So I say – who needs to drive to the laundromat in search of clean underwear?  Not me!

  1. Fun meme…and exceptional photo. Wonderful attempt at one-word-answers. Made me laugh!!!!

  2. suehenryphotography says:

    Love the photo! And, your sense of humor. Great job with the Meme.

  3. Pretty funny!

  4. Joanna Young says:

    I enjoyed the meme too Bo, it’s interesting how much we can learn from you in your choice of one word answers!

  5. The Nuns wouuld not be pleased with your adherence to instructions. You probably colored outside the lines, too. 🙂

    I love Chihuly’s creations. Very nice shot.

  6. Love the image… great colors.

    I’d play along with the meme though I decided against casting myself into the spotlight of vulnerability as I was the only one who played the last time. 🙂

    As for that perfect photo printer you’re looking for… take a look at the Canon pigment ink 13″ printers. Of course if your budget is bigger, the wider format may be more to your liking. Canon has removable printing heads… much easier to clean if clogged.

  7. Could I have Dale Chihuly glass for Christmas please, pretty please!

  8. Funny name for a cat, the velcro cat.

  9. For some reason, your images aren’t appearing right now. I’ll come back later and try again.

    In the meantime, I enjoyed your answers. 🙂

  10. I like the glass art. K U Med Center in Kansas City has an extreme amount of glass art in a waiting area hanging from the ceiling. The sunlight coming in from the windows pierce the glass and reflect against the wall creating a continous art in motion. Catchy shot you have there.

  11. Yay! I finally get to see the Chihuly glass. Gorgeous colors. Nice shot, Bo. 🙂

  12. *grins*

    I’m partial to tequilah myself, though I rarely ever drink. The taster is cleaner to me, more pleasant than other sorts of alcholol.

    Glad I could help distract.

    And ‘hey’ to Jazz, the velcro cat.
