I don’t get to say that I am the founder of many things. I mean I could say I’m the founder of Southern Canada, but that hasn’t happened yet. I could also say I created KFC, but yet again that is a lie. And I am super bad at telling the fibs.
What I can say is that 4 years ago I started a little tiny holiday that was supposed to celebrate my friend Isabel. For the following reasons:
1. She’s really awesome
2. She’s is about 120 miles away and its a bit far when you work the 9-5 and school 24/7
3. I like staring at things, and being in architecture school I didn’t get to see my pals for quite a long time.
So when I graduated I set a goal to “see” my friends, and at the same time create a holiday to celebrate her awesomeness.. So I got this brilliant idea to stare…. directly at Isabel, and I much like her truest love Clay Aiken I never want to stop looking at her.
Now we take a month to take in Isabel. And it’s a beautiful thing.
Also I hope everyone who is staring this year is enjoying their periscopes.
I hope you are having a lovely Tuesday. On this December 13th (7 days left, OMG) I bring to you a British fan of gazing at Isabel yes Declan McManus international jewel thief is an avid starer- I mean Elvis Costello, yes Elvis Costello… he like to stare:
His Stare is True
Have a funtastic stare day! I’m working on a beautiful post!
It’s that magical time of the day where I need to quote my ever so professional co-worker. Sadly, the Professional Quote of the Day has not been in daily observance due to the importance of the Isabel Stare-A-thon 2011.
Frankly, I cannot take my eyes off of my periscope pointed San Diego way to get a steady flow of professional quotes a happening this holiday season.
But today is different. Today is a quote I have been saving for a special occasion, and this cold rainy afternoon is that very occasion. So without further ado I present to you a Professional Christmas Quote:
Don’t you love the joy of Eric’s professional words in glittery Christmas text?
Now I would be the first person to tell you I know not much about science… All I remember from my brief exposure to this field is usually marred by teachers who inspired me to sit in a corner and doodle. (By the way thanks super bad teachers, I get paid money to draw now.)
Anyhoo, besides starting small fires in chemistry class, and the fact that the Galapagos Islands exist I have no real scientific knowledge*.
But you know who does love science? Isabel… yes, the one we stare at. She really does, in fact if science were a real life person she’d marry him.
And that brings us to this sciency Isabel stare-a-thon picture:
So go, tell all your friends about this site, and science. Because both things are super awesome… and KEEP STARING!
*Maybe I know more science than this, but then again… maybe not.
Today on the Isabel Stare-A-thon 2011 aka the best thing you are doing today we look into Isabel with numerical data!
And since Isabel’s life is all about data, let’s get into this. With the assistance of the Stare-a-thon League the following chart was created:
That has been a question we’ve all been wondering for weeks now. The Chicken population has responded well to this years stare-a-thon… And, I’m really glad to see the growth of the sea creature population, nearly tripling in the last year. I think this may have a lot to with the popular use of periscope this year….
But I digress, as interesting as I find the steady rat viewership they at the The Stare-a-thon League are more interested in how people are staring this year and this brings us to chart B:
Now remember to stare everybody! In any which way that makes you the most comfortable!
