mystery solved .....

so ... a mystery we have ..... 

a secret parcel on my porch .... 

what is it ..... what are they ...... 

so ... roberta said aliens....

suze said contact lenses for hexopolis....

mary ..... couldn't even guess .....

darla..... no, they are not car parts .......

kelly..... wanted it to be aliens, but was easily swayed by darla's car part theory ..... with her own twist: alien car parts .....

heidi was worried about me hurting myself with them ..... not to worry, dearie, if i tried to cut myself with them, they'd break, i would be injury free, though out some lovely conversation pieces ....

3rd: wanted to agree with everyone else .... including just being clueless with mary ..... 

and ....

drum roll please...................

smart donna knew exactly what they were .... cool parts from an old printer .... you actually removed and replaced them to change the font ..... i've never heard of them or seen anything like them before ....

but when my friend, melinda, was cleaning her attic ... she saw "weird round things with letters" and thought ..."hmmm seems like something e needs!" ...... 

ah ...mystery solved .... no aliens .... although donna, i adored x-files in its day ..... mmmmmulder..... 

so ..... this one is a courier print ...with fragile plastic pokes coming off the center ..... what will it be? my guess is a flower ...but only time will tell ..... one small.beck.artist thinks they should be wheels on a car ...... 

now.... look at this pic ....... it is actually just a pic-let .... a photo.... a photo-let .... a glimpse ... a glimpse-let ..... 
ok ... i just tried on all those word choices and couldn't pick which to go with ..... i'm not going to choose ..... so just look .......
it's got some orange going on ..... quite mysterious, huh? i was actually not even going to show you this bit .... the sniblet doesn't really do justice, i think ..... (eep! i hope!) ...... but i've been teasing about it for far tooooo long .... so .... a glimpse ...HA ...that's the word i wanted .... 

and one last quick thing... american idol ... i hope brooke puts out an album ... i don't think she's the best singer or performer or personality ....but, she's always been my favorite ..... she's kinda carly simon-ish.... i'll buy her album .....and .... for the record ....last week i said it to my kids, this week i'll announce it to the world .... the american idol finals are going to be an all david event ....what do you think?

I like Brooke too. Sad to see her go. She has a very appealing voice. I'm still in shock that the Aussie was sent home, esp before the little guy who looks like he should be a Mousketeer.

I totally agree with you. I hope it's the David I've been voting for. But who knows?

Oh, computer fonts parts. Very interesting, as I never knew a computer had parts like that...almost like a type writer!

LOL! I guess I'm dating myself...I remember those old "daisy wheels" from the Compucorp Word processors (the predecessor of the desktop PC and long before the World Wide Web was in existence). One had to change them out every time one wanted a different font - pt 12 Elite; pt 10 courier...yes, I am dating myself.

And, as far as Mulder goes - well, he is right up there with my love for Captain Jack Sparrow, aka Johnny Depp (I remember little Johnny from 21 Jump Street...I'm probably old enough to be his mom...ewwwww!) =)

Can't wait to see what the mysterious orange canvas is...
