Catherine Reddoch - My New Hero

Faithful readers, meet Mrs. Catherine Reddock of New Zealand. Why is she so special, you ask? Well, for the past 20 years, since her husband died, this woman has made a 3-mile walk EVERY DAY to her local McDonalds to receive a free cheeseburger. The employees open the door for her and always have her order ready - plain cheeseburger, just meat and cheese, thank you. Catherine even has her own special table with a plaque in the restaurant. Furthermore, if it is raining, an employee will deliver the sandwich to her house. Catherine estimates that she has received over 8,000 free cheeseburgers in the last 20 years. YOU GO GIRL!

Creepy Photo of the Day - Pac Man edition

What the F Happened to Pac Man?

Too many Blue Ghosts and not enough fruit, is my guess. I'm just glad to see the dude/dudette wearing gloves.

Jennifer Maestre - Colored Pencil Sculptures

Maestre's Sculptures
Michigan-based Jennifer Maestre sculpts nature and creature-inspired works made solely of colored pencils after she discovered nails did not give her the variation in form she wanted. Her sculptures are featured exclusively at Mobilia Gallery in Cambridge, MA. Below is a quick take on the works shown above.
1. "Aurora" depicts petals and sun-rays
2. "Terpsichore" shows 3 dancing girls and garlands of flower
3. "Silkie" a mythological seal that sheds his skin and becomes human
4. "Threnody" depicts a hymn of mourning and loss
5. "Ursulina" inspired by a pug
6. "Seethe" shows lava bubbling out of a volcano
7. "Kraken" inspired by sea-monsters
8. "Materialize" depicts an object rising out of a swirl
9. "Ibentina" inspired by ancient Egyptian sculptures
10. "Pelt" one of Maestre's firsts and favorites
