What Kind of Dog is the CIA’s Mascot?

A water border collie.

The word of the day is: Saudade.

[ soh-dah-duh ]
(in Portuguese folk culture) a deep emotional state of melancholic longing for a person or thing that is absent:
the theme of saudade in literature and music.

My brain misses the OREOs.

The rest of my body does not.

Yesterday was a little less sweaty.

Until I stood in my kitchen with the oven set to 400 Fahrenheit for two hours.

And just as I was almost done using the oven, a million people showed up to eat.







Jitterbug and I had the realization that I was talking about taking this year off from holidays because of the Year of Holidays.

But I literally had a a whole year off from holidays during the Year of Naps.

Which was also a weird year because I don’t have year-long planner for it.

So my planner archives for the photo project go 2016 (Year of Songs), 2018 (Council of Henry), 2019 (Year of Holidays), 2021 (Year of Words).

And now I’m working on 2022 (Year of Ran-dumb).

I’m not 100% on the wording yet for the title.

I guess they refer to that as a working title.


I’ve got the design team (The Blacksmith) working on making my dumb shit ideas less dumb.

I tried to find an animated gif of the doctor from Batman (’89) talking to the Joker saying “Look at vhat I haff to vurk vith.”

I couldn’t find one.

Did I just dream that that was in the movie?

Maybe I imagined the over-the-top German accent.

Somebody who has seen that movie in the last 15 years please correct me.

I’m working with brain cells that have been through a lot.

If you’ve read my posts in the last couple of years have probably heard (read?) me say that I have a hard time distinguishing between dream and memory/reality.

Drugs are like that.

Where was I?

Oh yeah.

So I finished planning the photoshoots for this year.

So I can work on next year’s plan without feeling like I’m neglecting one project that I should be working on for another project that’s three and a half months away.


It’s Monday?

I’m gonna go for a run.

See ya’ tomorrow.

More soon. ~SC
