The Challenge of Art
See that door? It plays a part in what follows. Superfrenchie found it in France. She's been travelling in her native land. Milla, too, has been on the move. The other week, she visited Copenhagen with a friend. I asked for photos. I got them. Getting background on the finds proved to be harder. Finally, I awarded my two reluctant informants the Suzie Q Ferguson Award for Terrible Tour-Guiding. A meme was born.
Suzie Q Ferguson (not, obviously, her real name) was an American student in the 1980s. Suzie loved to show people around her adopted town of Tübingen. The problem was, she didn't know anything about the sights she was pointing to. So visitors would get comments like, 'That's an old church,' and 'Here's another old church,' followed by, 'Do you see how small that door is? People were shorter then.'
In future, photographs submitted to the Post with similar-quality information attached (or no information at all, as frequently happens) will be entered for the Suzie Q Ferguson Award. You, too, can be a winner. Just dump your mobile cache in the direction of the Post Office.
Speaking of the Post Office, it has been enriched by a new staff member: TJ the Assistant to the Assistant Editorial Kitty has discovered that the computer screen has interesting things on it. He's been 'helping'. Please excuse the typos. We had to stop him from searching '3333333333333wwww' on Youtube the other day. He didn't find any good videos that way. However, he made a good video, which you can see this week. TJ's decided to be the TV reviewer. He didn't think too much of this week's offering. It put him right to sleep, but not until after he'd attacked the screen in frustration at the bad dialogue.
What else do we have for you this week? Let's take a look:
I hope the weather is promising where you are, and you can get out, take pictures, and drink in some vitamin D. (My doctor tells me, 'Whenever you see sunshine, run out and stand in it.' The neighbours look at me strangely, but I yell, 'Doctor's orders!') And have a great week!
