Punny Monday 2011.01.17

Welcome to Punny Monday. This is a fun little guessing game meant to spark your imagination and tickle your funny bone. Every Monday I post an original photo and ask my readers to figure out what was going on in my brain (or Amoeba’s) when he/I/we made it. Posting time varies so every time zone occasionally gets a fair shot at being first to see the game.

Here is the image you need to base your guess on:

What noun does this photo represent? EMAIL your answers and leave a comment designed to either help or confuse your fellow game players. The first contestant to EMAIL me the right answer wins a featured link in my blog which will display until next Monday when we’ll play this little game again. Enjoy.

PLEASE, do not write your guess in the comments. It spoils the game for the other players. Your guesses will be shared when the game ends. Oh, and just because someone announces they’ve won, doesn’t mean that they have. Please keep guessing until I post the answers!

Handy-Dandy Video Converter

I love Voydo! They’ve just made it possible for me to convert songs I find on youtube to mp3 files!. All too often the exact song I want to download is available on a YouTube video, but I can’t find it anywhere else on the ‘net. Since I am old, the stuff I am looking for came into the world on albums (we wait while the 30 somethings Google “albums”) and the only place I can find it online is YouTube. I have to tune in and play them on my laptop. But dragging my laptop along on my walks is a real pain — especially when it is raining! Amd I’m not upgrading from my iPod shuffle to one of those video machines. My eyes are for looking at the world, not watching the tube.

Recreate Yourself Through Meditation

While we’re on the subject of self-improvement, meditation is one sure-fire way to reduce the clutter in your mind, concentrate your thoughts and bring out your creativity. At gobrainev.com, I was just reading about their six-part brainwave meditation program available on CD.

The Brain Evolution System was designed using brain wave research.  As you can see from the diagram above, after just a few minutes of listening to the carefully researched musical tones of Brainev, highly agitated brain waves are calm and relaxed — ready to learn and think and create.  If you are interested in becoming more focused, more productive, and unleashing your creative powers, visit gobrainev.com and check out the videos on how the program works, sign up for the free 15 minute demo — then take advantage of the 21 day trial offer.

Born of Night

Command Assassin Nykyrian Quikiades once turned his back on the League—and has been hunted by them ever since. Though many have tried, none can kill him or stop him from completing his current mission: to protect Kiara Zamir, a woman whose father’s political alliance has made her a target.

As her world becomes even deadlier, Kiara must entrust her life to the same kind of beast who once killed her mother and left her for dead. Old enemies and new threaten them both and the only way they can survive is to overcome their suspicions and learn to trust in the very ones who threaten them the most: each other.

Born of Fire

Syn was raised as a tech-thief until his livelihood uncovered a truth that could end his life. He tried to destroy the evidence, and has been on the run ever since. Now trained as an assassin, he allows no one to threaten him. Ever. He is the darkness that swallows his enemies whole.

Shahara Dagan is the best bounty hunter in the universe. When Syn comes back on the radar, she’s the only one who can bring him to justice. There’s only one problem: Syn is a close family friend who’s helped out the Dagans countless times. But if she saves him, both of their lives will be on the line. Is Syn’s protection worth the risk? The only hope Shahara has is to find the evidence he buried long ago. Now it’s kill or be killed—and they, the predators, have just become the hunted…

Born of Ice

Devyn Kell spent his life in service to the League until he learned of the double dealing and backstabbing that was costing innocent people their lives. Refusing to play those politics, he became a Runner—someone who makes sure planets get the weapons, medicine and supplies they need to survive. May the gods have mercy on any who get in his way, because he definitely won’t.

Alix Garran is a woman on the run from a past she can’t escape. Signing on to work for Devyn as a System’s Engineer, she finds a cause she can fight for—and a man she can respect. But as Alix’s past catches up to her, and Devyn’s old enemies turn lethal, they have to fight together…or fall alone.

Feast Your Ears on This!

Turn up the volume on your computer, adjust your earphones, and get a fork.  Yep, a fork.  You are about to be treated to a heaping helping of prime cut ham.  This ham isn’t Virginia Baked, it’s from Maine via Massachusetts and only half-baked, but it is served with a generous Idaho spud and is quite savory.

In other words: Amoeba O’Ceallaigh (Maine) and I (Idaho) are the guest readers this week at Waking Ambrose.  We are reading, The Reformation of Wolfshausen, Tiel Sebien.  Come on over, give us a listen, and lend your support.  If you decide to toss things at us, money is preferable to fruits and vegetables, but we will accept the later if they are fresh and unblemished.   (Please don’t forget to leave a comment.)
