don't shoot till you see the red of their eyes

I'll never figure out that Splotchy character. Now he's tagging people to post a close-up of their eyes. I think he's some kind of serial killer or something.

But since you are already here and everything, how about if I implore you to head over to The Bookworm Collective to read my latest review, of James Howard Kunstler's The Long Emergency: Surviving the Converging Catastrophes of the 21st Century.
It's a laugh riot, I tell you!

Oh, and you are tagged.
Show me yer eyes.


Splotchy said...

Thank you!

Allison said...

My what nice eyes you have! And eyebrows. :)

I think my first blog avartar was a picture of my eyes...have to search the archives. ;)

Lurvly eyes
Ah, you're reading that!
I told you to read that and now you're reading it! Oh boy, I can't wait to see what you say

Bubs said...

My, what big green eyes you have!

Good luck with "The Long Emergency"...that book almost drove me off the cliff into full-blown survivalism.

It was really fun, even though it was quite weird, Splotchy.

I think I do remember that one, Al. Yes, do dig it up, for old times sake.

Wow, that was some book, you were certainly right to recommend it, Gifted.
And you were right about his crazy website too. But too much reading it will blow your mind.

Thank you for not noticing the cataracts, Bubs.
I know! I was ready to buy a donkey, some chickens and a rifle.

I love that you say "I think he's some kind of serial killer" but then humour him anyway. You're so brave.

(And I believe Kim Carnes is working on a song about you.)

Jas Bhambra said...

Beautiful eyes, Barb.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Brave? Are you kidding, John? You think I'm not going to humour a serial killer?
That Kim Carnes sure does like to stick to a theme, doesn't she?

Gawsh, thanks, Jas.

You're awesome, Jen! And fast.

So. I read your book review and now I'm not so sure I want to read your article. It may make me cry. I would ideally like to continue pretending it will all get sorted out just in time. Nice eyes btw.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Oh honey, that sounds like the hormones talking! Still, maybe wait for a half a year before reading it, Kees. You're a scientist, you can handle it!

Karen's Mouth said...

Too true. I am by turns intolerant psychopath and weepy loon. Suspect it's less fun for those people that aren't me.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

It sounds like a laugh riot for you, though, Kees! Aren't hormones a wonderful thing?

Took me a minute to recognize your eyes, Barb! Gorgeous! I thought it was a professional model at first.

It's me, the professional cataracts model, Berni.
