Two Oddities For Your Sunday Pleasure

1) The Cats In Sinks website. (Thanks to Karla May for having the twisted sensibility to know such a thing existed.) This is pure, cat-lover porn. And I CAN'T. GET. ENOUGH.

2) The Man went camping yesterday out at Bastrop State Park. Being the guy that he is, he immediately came home and looked up the state park on Google Maps, and found this:

(Were you as geeky as we, you should totally Google Map it yourself, to get an idea of the size and scope of this thing. Look up Smithville, TX, which is about an hour southeast of Austin.)

Apparently, there is some guy near Smithville, named Luecke, that has, tracts of land, and decided that, hey, what is the point of having anything if it can't be seen from space? Seriously, they can see this from the space shuttle! (Ah, though, I don't know what else there is to do in Smithville, Texas, so I'll not judge.)

Tonight's lesson? There are people with too much time on their hands.

Oh...and also, not germane to this discussion, we-all over here at the Mags household are sending a big happyfest huzzah to Michelle and John, who have birthed a young 'un, Willow Rose. All are well and doing just fabulously.

I already love her; she's got a Buffy name! (One of ours was damned near to being named "Cordelia.")

To emphasize just how nuts this Luecke person is, that's not just a variation on crop circles. That's not a wheat field. Those are PINE TREES. He cleared away acres of PINE TREES to spell his name. A LOT of pine trees. Big ones. The entire name is about two and a half miles long. Everything's bigger in Texas ... a not a little bit insane.
