Fun Art (It's good and it's good for you)

Okay, thanks to iGoogle I discovered a really cool artist named Edward Monkton. I love him! I love his little hearts and stars and scribbles. I love his bright colors. I love his adorable line drawings. I love his cute little critters with occasionally unnerving comments. They are indeed interesting thoughts. Occasionally creepy, occasionally thought provoking, occasionally heartacheingly sweet.

The INTERESTING thoughts of Edward Monkton

I'm still enjoying Numbers but I had to take a break to review multiplication and addition of radicals. I also had to look up the word "surd". I'm sure I never learned that ... but maybe. Crazy how much you forget. I can hear myself reading "lalalalalala" in place of reading a4+2b3 + 7p2 + q = 0 or whatevers in the text. I was debating reviewing imaginary numbers before continuing; however, my goal for this book isn't to learn/relearn math but to share in the joy of it's discovery (or deduction) so I decided to plunge forward regardless. I will figure it out on my own as I go. If numbers can be transcendental than so can I.

Had you heard of "surd"? Probably. Probably it was just me who thought perhaps it was hummus related but no. It's that whole nth root thing.

Never heard of it. Does it come from taking things to ab"surd" lengths?

*wanders off to look up nth root*

your definition makes *much* more sense to me. i'm going with that one.

and now i am off to bed to dream of integers darn it. good old solid numbers you can see touch taste and feel. (though oddly enough not smell??) aaaaah, God's numbers.

or maybe hummus. i like hummus.

OH - i got to post something in a random journal search. it was turning out to be not so random and lots of people were leaving comments. two people in particular got very silly and kept commenting back and forth between themselves & no one else devising a plan to protect themselves from the nonrandom LJ conspiracy that was being uncovered. one came up with the idea of grasping a teddy bear and shared it virtually with the other. they ended up friending each other on LJ and goofing around more on the random journal. the second accepted the teddy bear which they decided was actually a teleporation device. the second commented that she left a comment in the other's journal and said "I are no saved" so i posted:

4022 were saved but there were no survivors

I'm curious as to the response...

now, off to bed!!

Did you see this one??




It reminded me of you.
Especially when we were at The Texas Roadhouse and Jamie was trying to soothe you by lining up the peanuts in a neat and orderly row. Remember that? Remember? Huh? Remember??
WELL, let me refresh your memory!! Jason and I were throwing peanut shells from the table and onto the floor... and off the wall and onto the floor... and over your head and onto the floor... You were slowly turning purple...
Good times... good times...

Oh, and those aren't CHIPS.... those are obviously french fries!
Chips are all curvy and bumpy. Therefore, even if they were lined up straight they would not be in and of themselves straight, thereby nullifying the validity of the entire “My chips are straight” argument.
Sigh… darn those British chip (but really french fry) eaters!
