Random Nothingness

I've got nothing, except this side-by-side comparison:


On the left, the European symbol for the Autoroute / Autobahn / Autostrada and,
on the right, the logo for the upcoming Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. Hm.

Is it just me, or does it look like the folks who created the logo for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics were inspired by the European auto route symbol?

Let's punch it up a notch. This is my new profile picture on my Facebook account. I made it using this site. I'm sure there's nothing unique about me doing it. I just needed a little more filler here.

Not entirely accurate. I don't wear lipstick and I don't have cool glasses,
but it was either this or a dress and we know that ain't gonna happen!

Also, I think this looks nothing like me, but a lot like my high school friend Laura Sumison. Not a lot of choice for women of my dapperness on the Mad Men site.

See? Random nothingness. I need to get my blog mojo back.

Oh, wow, I totally see that. Please get your blog mojo back we miss you.

It appears that they've assumed that all men have short hair, and there's no beard style to match mine. There was no way for me to create a person that looks anything at all like me. Other than that, it was a fun exercise.

Nice choice of attire! Wish you would write more, too. - Phoebe

Yes. I have been missing your creative eye and wit.

Cele: I gotta do something. And quick!

Gilahi: Well, all I can say is Mad Men is hairist. Surely they have hippies on that show?

Phoebe: Thank you! And yeah, I need to step it up on the writing.

Amy: I miss you, too!

P.S. Gilahi... Just for the record, I'm not suggesting you're a hippie. For that era, you're pony-tailed hair would have labeled you such. To me, you're a cool dude with an encyclopedic mind full of great music and a really fab head of hair.

Brian said...

Yeah it's no fun when blog mojo leaves. But I did notice this on FB and it made me smile. Hope all is well! :)

Gilahi said...

You almost make it sound as if “hippie” is a bad thing. Have you noticed the subtitle on my blog page?

Maya said...

Clothes fitted to your curves. Now we're talking!

J.M. Tewkesbury said...

Brian: Yeah, the lack of mojo is a drag. That, and trying to figure out how to say, "I need a new canister of gas for the grill" in French is enough to make anyone's mojo go.


Gilahi: I forgot that's what your blog header said. Never mind me then. It's official: Mad Men is anti-hippy. Bastards!


Maya: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

All you need to accompany that Martini glass is a riding crop!

J.M. Tewkesbury said...

Gunny: No crop available, but that is a newspaper I'm holding in my other hand. In the past, I would have used it to swat Bush and his Dick. Now, it's for swatting the likes of neocons and Glen Beck.

Adriana Velez said...

I meant to tell you when I first saw your FB avatar how much I love it and how well it fits you!

J.M. Tewkesbury said...

Adriana: Thanks! I've switched back to my Obamicon, though, as a protest to my neo-con FB friends. (Yes, I have a few of those. I went to high school in Utah.)
