Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi

Actually I'm not that picky -- I'll take help from anyone who can tell me what this is.

  1. Wow, I can't even begin to guess. Nothing we had in the wilds of North looks like an alien life form.

    Braving the VGW cuz I'm not sure I'll get back here today. Lots of work to do this weekend - but my first paycheck came in, woo hoo!

    Hope everyone has fun plans for the weekend, and survived Friday. Sending sunny vibes northward.

    Waving and dashing!

  2. Yay for paychecks! Your sunny vibes will have a lot of work to do here -- it's been raining since Thursday and it's supposed to keep raining until Tuesday night. Hope everything goes okay with the house.

  3. Good morning Andi and Beth,

    Andi put me in the "No Idea" category. Actually it looks like something that was in the movie Independence Day.

    Well I hope everyone is doing fine today, and I'm off to another day of slacking.

    Take care


  4. ACK! Andi, back away from the tentacle...slowly. Now...RUN!!!!

    Eep, that's one funky looking piece of plant life.

    Morning, gang. Slept in today, with loads of weird dreams to accompany me. I've been way too obsessed with this story that won't get written, methinks.

    Got me a new 'do yesterday (after 6 months of abstinence from the salon)

    It's very fun and funky and just in time for Malice Domestic next weekend, where I'll see Ms. Nancy and Ms. Dina.

    Heading offline after a bit to once again tackle the untackleable story. Wish me muse!!

    Happy weekend, all!

  5. Some kind of vine. The little tendrils will help it grab onto whatever it touches. Beyond that, no clue… just hope climate change hasn't made kudzu viable up that way!

    Heavy t-storms coming this way, boo. Mason pulled himself upright in the playpen this morning, yay! The Boy got "fired" from his band last night, meh. I'll probably be writing more on that later.

    Yay for paychecks, Beth! You're off to spend it all?

    Happy slacking, FM. Looks like I'll be doing much of the same, enforced due to rain.

    Maria, you're a redhead? oooooooo Mrs. Fetched is off getting her hair done this morning. I call it "husband repellant" because the smell of the perm *is* pretty repulsive.

    Hey ho to Lisa, Kelly, Dina, Lori, and the rest of the gang!

  6. It's clearly the presence of one of the ancient elder ones projecting into our reality.

    Ia! Ia! Cthulhu Fthagn! Ph'nglui mglw'nfah Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

    Congrats, Beth.

    Heyo, FarF, Fam, Andi, Maria and the later arrivals.

  7. Hi Staple Man -- I mean, Family Man. Happy slacking to you.

    Yeah for the haircut Maria. Way more yay (and oodles of jealous) for getting to be with Nancy and Dina.

    A vine sounds like a good guess, Farf, but I can't imagine what kind -- it sure doesn't look like the ones I'm familiar with. And judging by our weather, your thunderstorms have done a reverse Sherman.

    Somehow, I'm not convinced, Kelly, but I'll take your ravings under advisement. :)

  8. I think it's a red fiddle-head fern. Check this out:

    It's not a perfect match, but pretty close.


  9. Help me, Obi-Wan-Kidspeak. :)

    That's really interesting, ks. I wonder if when that happens the entire plant gradually goes green since the head on mine wasn't red and when I went back the next day to see what it looked like unfurled, I couldn't find anything red.

    I'll have to watch that area next year and see if I get more of them.
