Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Tuesday, January 24, 2006


This is a picture of my Heart-O-Stat. It was drawn on a scrap of paper from my recycle bin then cleaned up and colored in Photoshop. I finished this entire picture in about ten minutes.

I had big plans for Sunday and Monday. I was going to spend those days working on the old pc catching up on this blog and writing a few different things. Unfortunately I had a little hitch in my giddy up. The house was too cold to work in. We forgot to buy oil for the furnace that heats our home. We realized we needed oil when we ran out on Sunday afternoon.

How cold was it you ask? Well, I know a lot of people use a thermostat to measure the temperature in their house but I prefer to use the Heart-O-stat. For example if it's Oprah in the house you'll be walking around in shorts. (Because Oprah has such a warm heart.) Simon Cowell is right around freezing. Our house was just a little warmer than Dick Cheney's cold, cold heart.

Finally today someone came and filled the oil tank. It still took until late afternoon to get the house 15 degrees below Oprah and now that it's warm enough to sit at the computer again I will spend the rest of my afternoon playing catch up. (Sigh) I love the little foibles that keep life interesting.

Do you love little foibles? Will you love me?


  • What about Hillary Clinton's loins? I hear those are cold, or what the hell - I guess you could say Condaleeza's loins are frosty too.

  • I like to keep my house somewhere between Lassie and Jane Goodall. But it goes down to Katie Couric at night.

  • When we first married and moved in our old farmhouse (before we replaced the windows),we could watch the curtains blowing inward in the winter.It was miserable!Hey, I'm only 84 drops of love behind that rascal anonymous! love

  • Even in the North Pole, where I live, my apart seems always about 10 degrees above OPRAH's. I'm soooo hot! Naaaaa! It's the kitties running everywhere to have fun... or is it the menopause...? I wonder... Love anyway... Should I say hot love... heh heh hee... :o)

  • Is it just me but does anyone else think this is vaguely reminiscent of Eric's woodie.

  • Should I leave love for someone with such strange preoccupations - I've never seen an Oprah - is it like an Ostrich? Or an opera? or what?

    Now I've discovered the links but it doesn't really enlighten me...

    love anyway!

  • I received a $450. gas bill last week; my thermostat will now be set at Simon Cowell. Thank God for electric heaters!!

  • shane: Ha good, but it's a Heart-O-stat not a loin-O-stat.

    echelsea: Ha, ha. At night I like to have the temp at Tom Cruise. That is when you just turn off the heater because Tom is a robot and has no heart.

    janet: Yeah, we had to put up plastic because we got tired of watching the curtains blowing at night.
    What? Is it a race?

    merlinprincesse: Hot Blooded!

    detlef: :-O lol!

    caroline: Hmm... I'm not really up on my things UKish but I will try to make a comparison. Imagine the warmth of the persons heart reprsenting the temperature. replace Oprah with Princess Di, replace Simon Cowell with Jade Goody and replace Dick Cheney with Tony Blair. I hope that will clear things up. Maybe you were confused from counting cats. :-)

    d. maria; Maybe if you put something on besides that little bikini!

  • Actually, I'm always a little chilly. Sometimes in the summer months I even get chilly from those metal industrial strength fans in the window.

    Now that its winter time I wear many layers. Still get cold though.
