More August photos & adventures

Last weekend, I went to the MAC to see a lovely and fascinating exhibit: “Leonardo da Vinci: Man, Inventor, Genius“. When the security guard wandered into another room (I wasn’t sure whether or not photography was allowed), I quickly took this photo of a replica of one of my favorite Leonardo paintings, Lady with an Ermine:

It’s gorgeous, with intriguing symbolism and an extremely interesting backstory.

And because I’ll use any possible excuse to post a clip from Doctor Who, here’s a great Leonardo-related bit from my favorite DW episode, City of Death:

A light switch in my apartment. I drew the hearts on it when I first moved in:

Trees during a rainstorm:

That rainstorm involved a sudden and unexpected downpour, which occurred as I was heading back to my apartment from my car. In an attempt to avoid getting completely soaked, I decided to wait out the downpour on the porch belonging to Madame Moustache, Neighbor Kitty Extraordinaire. While waiting, I attempted to take a photo of Madame and me, and it sort of worked. She was more interested in rubbing up against my back, though. The second photo makes me giggle:

    • I know, she looks so little and wee in that photo! But according to her human, she’s actually quite an old kitteh.

        That makes sense. People shrink in old age, so why not the same with cats? Maybe she’ll just keep shrinking.

        • I should mention, too, that she’s also really chubbeh! It’s adorable. She often looks like a loaf of bread.

          • They say the camera puts on 20 pounds- it must be the reverse for kittehs!

    • Ha- I was just about to say that Madame Moustache looks a lot thinner than she did in her inaugural vids on this blog! Have you been holding out on the kitteh treats, Miranda?! :)

      • Lately, I’ve seen her wandering around the neighborhood, pretending to “hunt” small creatures, so perhaps she’s dropped a few from that. She’s still a total loaf of bread, though :)

        Rufus is chubbeh too. When he folds his arms under his chest like she is in your previous post I calls him “my baby elephant seal”.

  3. What is it with atheists and Doctor Who? Must be a Russell T. Davies thing. :)

    Love the blog, which I’ve just discovered. And yes, love Doctor Who, which I discovered 33 years ago!
