Ransom Center

The official full title is the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin, which is where you can find this nifty interactive page about the Anatomy of a Page from the Gutenberg Bible.

Thanks to Trish of Design Kitten for pointing it out. She also has some links to one of her favorite artists, Tamara de Lempicka. Art-deco style, very nice.

So let's just run around and say hello to some new (to me) blogs, maybe you'll find something interesting and to your taste as well. And just how can I do this while being 'insanely busy'? Simple, mon ami! It's called 'downloading 1.8 million audit trail records', and the job will run for another short while, giving me this chance to scoot hither and yon.

Cruising around, I stumbled across Thud Factor, who has a picture of a rocket-propelled turtle. That's an auto-link right there.

I'm sorry I lost the link to who sent me to this one. They deserve trackback for pointing the way to The Brick Testament. You say it sounds like the Bible done in Lego? Yepper!

Just because I love the name of her blog, drop by and say hello to Mona at But That Sounded SO Good In My Head.

Another one, for the title. Graigs Transparent Soap (which used to be Spider Behind My Toilet).

Trailer Park Girl, and Hotel Illness.

Here's an odd little blog. Lunch. "i write about my lunch. you write about your lunch. we read about other people's lunch."

And here's The Sandwich Project, just...

Job is done. Must go.

Evening Update: Long day, surf a little before bed. Found this next one, and it's sooooo what I want to do with my life since it looks like the lottery thing ain't gonna pan out.

Evil Plan Generator. All I need now are some henchmen and a beautiful but evil assistant/bodyguard. Accepting resumes, duties negotiable.

I'm annoyed because somewhere I read a very funny bit I wanted to share. I even saw a link to it from one of my regular stops later on. Damned if I can find it now. Any help? It really is worth a look.

Found it! Infinite Monkeys, and I found it again thanks to Sophont. Enjoy.

Oh, and Jim, it's very funny. Hop to it now, dinner won't fix itself!

I'll be the henchman! I'll probably need a deformity of some type, though. . .

I think the joke is on me, because I did prepare the family dinner last night!

Come to think of it, so did I. :)

I want to be a henchman too. I can be the big dumb one who never gets the plan and always has objects hitting him in the head. That wouldn't change my life too drastically.

May I be your henchwoman? Pretty please?
