iPhone Photo Parade
Until about a week ago, if even that, this was the window of a costume shop on my walk to work. They left their New Year's display up well past New Year's Day -- and the reindeer lingered more than a month after Christmas. I'm not sure what's up with the Pink Panther.
Of course, maybe they were waiting for the Lunar New Year, which came just last week. This sign was posted outside an Asian restaurant. (I guess calling it "Chinese" New Year is no longer the thing to do, because other cultures and nationalities celebrate it too?)
Someone is giving away these black boots, which were left sitting on a wall on my street. When the cold temperatures came, they were coated with a rime of ice. They're still out there, last I checked, and have been for about two weeks. Probably not fit for wearing at this point.
Someone sitting on this bench passed the time by stockpiling an arsenal of snowballs.
I love these tiny British cars that are so small you can back them into a parallel parking space.
This parrot-shaped mug inhabited the staff mailbox of one of the teachers at work last week.
My boss bought this dish soap for use at the sink in our office, and I was amused by the "cherry blossom and red petal" name. Even dish soap is fancy now! When I was a kid my mom used to buy a variety called, no kidding, "pink liquid." Not exactly as compelling.
(I wonder if this contains either cherry blossoms or red petals? Somehow I doubt it.)
Finally, these are doodles on a whiteboard in a conference room at work. Yesterday I tried to clean the board and I realized they're drawn with indelible marker. Argh! Anybody know how to get Sharpie off a whiteboard?
