Stuff Portrait Friday: assignment in pairs

Two. Dos. Deux. Due.

Kristine had us shooting in pairs this week. The assignment was:

1. Something you have 2 of.
2. Something you wish you had 2 more of.
3. “Two”

Someone told me when I got my second cat that I was one cat away from becoming a lesbian. How owning three cats automatically changes one’s sexual orientation is beyond me. By the way, notice Jasper’s fancy claws? He learned that from Queer Cat for the Straight Cat on Animal Planet.
I have two of these

Something I wish I had two more of? My new car stereo. I’d like one to be in a MINI Cooper S, and one to be in a Pontiac Solstice. I can play my iPod through my new stereo and it goes to 11. “…it’s one louder, isn’t it? It’s not ten.”

Here’s my take on “two,” in honor of my poolshark boyfriend.

Didja play? Or were you too distraught over Chris Daughtry getting voted off American Idol to participate? (WTF is up with that, anyway?!?)

One-track mind


Is it me, or does this grate look like it’s made of creamy milk chocolate? At least covered in chocolate frosting?

The most exciting two minutes in sports

Are you ready for some horse racing? Today is the 132nd Run for the Roses. Post time 6:04 p.m. Eastern.

While you’re preparing the burgoo, hot browns, and mint juleps, here’s a little soundtrack for your enjoyment:

Catheroo’s Kentucky Derby 132 iTunes Playlist
Bring on the Dancing Horses by Echo & the Bunnymen
Which Way Does That Old Pony Run by Lyle Lovett
Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses by U2
Run by Snow Patrol
Taking the Inside Rail by Sting
Quick by Eddie from Ohio
Run Baby, Run by Sheryl Crow

Roses by Outkast
For the Love of Money by The O’Jays

Now put this on:

And sing along:

My Old Kentucky Home
The sun shines bright in My Old Kentucky Home,
‘Tis summer, the people are gay;
The corn-top’s ripe and the meadow’s in the bloom
While the birds make music all the day.

The young folks roll on the little cabin floor,
All merry, all happy and bright;
By ‘n’ by hard times comes a knocking at the door,
Then My Old Kentucky Home, good night!

Weep no more my lady
Oh weep no more today;
We will sing one song
For My Old Kentucky Home
For My Old Kentucky Home, far away

(Contemporary lyrics adapted in 1986 from Stephen Foster’s original lyrics, 1853.)

…and they’re off!

Stuff Portrait Friday: Random and Odd

Kristine lived up to her blog name this week, as she assigned the following for SPF:

  • Body of Water – think big or small…it’s up to you
  • Something with Flavor – yes, another wide open one
  • Plant your Ass – where you park it…

My body of water idea came from (e). Ice, ice, baby.
Body of water

Something with flavor. How ’bout lots of flavors? My favorite is in there. Guess which one it is.
Something with flavor

Plant your (my) ass. Well, as you can see, my spot was taken. Or kept warm for me while I was up. Yeah, I’m sure that’s what Jasper was thinking. Because cats are considerate animals.
Where I sit (usually)

Did you play?
