Time to catch up on some random iPhone pictures – with a bit of holiday spirit thrown in for good measure.
The display in the shop window above cracked me up. It's a home security store, devoted to locks and stuff, so why they're selling Christmas items is anyone's guess. They look pretty desperate to get rid of it all.
What is a "luxury bauble," anyway? They're plastic!
Another amusing coffee cup. We've got a million of 'em.
This little lobster has been stuck to the back of a bathroom door at work for years.
When I stopped off at work to pick up my phone on Saturday morning, I had the opportunity to snap a picture of Olga outside. She'd never been to our place of employment. She had to wait for me tied to the bike shed, so she probably wasn't all that impressed.
This says, in Czech, "rat in car."
Another fun wine label. Skulls are always artistically appealing, for some reason. It was good wine, too – a blend featuring mostly red Zinfandel, one of my favorites.
Yesterday in a bathroom at work I found all these little post-it notes stuck to the mirror. I don't know if you can read them, but they give inspirational messages in both English and French, like, "you are special" and "vous êtes forts" (you are strong). Was this someone's French homework?
And finally, the people at the party and costume store we pass on our walk to work are making a half-hearted attempt to be excited about the New Year. But I imagine running a party store during a pandemic is a struggle.
