On 8 February, I went to Tilburg in the Netherlands for an afternoon about town.

There were lots of bicycles

And lots of marching band participants celebrating in the nearby bars, but I didn’t get photos of them.  Bummer.  I was eating a nice brunch with Mel, Herve, and Tuna.

We wandered after lunch and saw even more bicycles.

Flickr is fun because it tells you how people find your photos.  Apparently if you Google Image Search “georiga o’keefe pelvis paintings,” two of my photos of Chicago’s Bean Sculpture at Millennium Park are number 7 and 8!

Here are the photos for your viewing pleasure.

This morning was not unlike any other morning.  I woke up around 7:30 and stumbled downstairs to work at about 8:05.  I greeted my co-workers and went into my office.  Where I found . . .

. . . that the whole office had been covered in little yellow duckies.

All of it. Everything.  We never found out for sure who did it, but we have our suspisions.

What an awesome April Fools’ Day/ Easter prank/ treat.

I wonder where the ducks will go next?  Perhaps in that giant swimming pool in our training space!
