I always heard that you knew fall was REALLY here when the Praying Mantis' turned brown. Well, this little fella was sitting on my car when I got out of work yesterday.
FREAK!! Winter's coming!!
I googled it and it seems that they molt frequently and are this ghostly color while waiting for the new coat to arrive. So perhaps it is just waiting for the brown autumn coloring or maybe Halloween.
Speaking of Autumn... here's an Autumn Awe... Cute little critter with one lop ear.
On Delia's Blog, she posted a photo of her desk and I thought that it would be a fun idea.
This is my desk at work. No that's not my notebook in the corner... no really, don't know how that got there at all... I would never, ever, ever work on something besides work at work. ahahaha
My boss is obsessive compulsive and can't handle clutter of any sort and so the desk is pretty bleak. I should take a picture of his desk. It is COVERED. But it is covered in tidy little stacks that don't send him into a whirl wind of 'straighten it up'.
I have got to be the bane of his existence. I like things on the corner. Diagonal works for me. Things that are straight grate on my nerves. I want chairs angled. I want computer screens angled. I want furniture angled. In the beginning I'd angle things to make it pleasing to me and he'd go behind me setting things straight. The pictures on the wall are forever giving him fits. Even if they were straight with the concave, curves and what not, they won't ever LOOK straight. It is awesome.
And here is my writing desk. It is a reluctant little fella that DID NOT want its picture taken. Didn't matter the light, the time of day or night all the photos came out looking like this. There was ONE photo that actually came out right, but it was blurry. Don't know what its problem is... I dusted it.
