Back to Basics

Salutations, my sweet ducklings! Happy 2012!

Sorry. I've had a lot of caffeine today.

I've also had a lot of time away from the wonderful world of blogging. (Well, a couple weeks, anyway.)

It occurred to me over my extended leave that I hadn't really done an actual radar post in a while. Since I've dubbed myself Meteoroflgy... I feel like perhaps one of my resolutions should be to revisit my roots a little more often.

I mean.. some of you who didn't discover me until recently might have not even seen any of this alleged "radar repartee" as of yet, and secretly think I'm a liar. I'm not a liar, I swear. I'm just lazy, and possibly narcissistic. It's just easier to draw stupid pictures of myself or of computers, or talk about my precious kitten, or bore you with tales of my holiday adventures.

But, I've heard from at least a couple of you that you miss it. So I'll try to pay attention to your needs a little bit more. I'll bring back those wacky radars as frequently as my brain and weather permit, with all of the integrity and enthusiasm of a used car salesman.

Actually, I hope I've mentioned this before, but should you ever look at a radar and think to yourselves, "I betcha that crazy ol' Amanda K could do something with it," you're welcome to send it my way! I can't guarantee it'll make it on the blog, but I can't guarantee that it won't, either!

For example, my friend Katie recently sent me this screen shot, with the note, "I am sure you'll see something."

On the one hand, I don't want to disappoint my friends. On the other... quite frankly, I didn't see anything about a circle. Pressure mounted, but I was determined to make something out of this. I mean... when are you ever going to see another perfect circle like that on a radar? This might be the only time, and I can't see a damned thing! I am wasting this beautiful opportunity! Wasting it!

What would you have me do, Katie?! WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?? I'm not Leonardo da Vinci! I can't give you the friggin' Sistine Chapel, here! Oooh, did Little Lord Fauntleroy expect the Mona Lisa? And that circle could just be her crazy, hot-pink, hipster monocle or something??

Fuck it.

That's right. It's a lopsided Mona Lisa in a hipster monocle. What of it?

---Interjection: Does anyone find it interesting that I can do a decent cartoon Mona Lisa, but can't draw a car to save my life?---

And no. I'm not linking the car post, because it still haunts me to this day. If laughing at my failure didn't bring joy to the masses, I'd totally delete that shit.

And I'm just kidding, Katie. I love it when you send me suggestions. I love it when anyone sends me anything! So seriously, if you have suggestions for what you'd like to see more of, or any screen shots you want me to desecrate, send them along! My contact info is up there in the tabs, somewhere.

Door's open, folks. Get on it. Because we've seen what happens when I'm left to my own devices.

I take perfectly innocent-looking things like this...

...and turn it into a snake chasing down a meth-smoking piglet.

Drugs are bad. Don't do them.

And fortunately for us all, I forgot to crop out those green bits behind the pig, so it looks like he has toxic farts as well. Perhaps that's his get-away plan.

Anyway, that's all I have for you today. I plan to have less time pass in between posts in the future. The holiday season was a little crazy, that's all.

Love it! You're right, the Mona Lisa is seriously amazing. I was admiring it even before you brought up the deformed mutant potato, er, I mean, the car. Anyway, I love the meth piglet too and wish he would run straight into my arms!

You are so funny. And I'm a duckling.
