It's A Beautiful Rain, Beautiful Rain...

Greetings from the land of the long weekend. Yes, mine began Thursday this week. And it has been very, very nice just being at home with the kids during their time off from school. Yesterday, we colored our Easter eggs :-)

Now, onto the real reason I am here....Saturday Scavenger Shots! This week's word, ALIEN, comes to us from none other than AlienCG over at Swamp Gas & Moonlit Reflections. This is a word that will surely mean different things to different people...or even different things to singular people. Here is what I came up with.

Okay, sorry, yes, it is the babies again...but come on...surely you have noticed how much babies look like our traditional image of an ALIEN! The over-sized eyes and heads? That sort of blank, staring look? Yeah, it works.

Then I thought...don't we all feel like ALIENs sometimes? Sort of solo travelers, outsiders, out of our element. It makes me think of these lyrics from one of my favorite bands...a couple of rather ALIENated fellows themselves...
You know I'm cool, yes I feel alright, 'cept when I'm in my room and it's late at night...

Thank you for boarding Spaceship Fresh Hell with me, my fellow ALIENs. And don't forget to check with our real resident ALIEN, AlienCG, to see who he will be tagging for next week.

Also, Happy Easter...Happy Spring. xo

EDIT: I see that AlienCG tagged me! I'm excited and so of course I have my word all ready to go. The word for next week, in honor of Spring and, coincidentally, part of my new blog title...FRESH. Make me proud, Bloggers!

You are so right, babies do look like aliens. I feel like an alien quite often. Great pictures.

Happy Easter!

Fröhliche Ostern.

Sebastien: Aren't they great? Thanks :-)

Daffy: Hey! Nice to see you...and thanks!

Those are awesome alien photos of the 3rd kind.

I love the new word "Fresh"! I'll get right on that!

Happy Easter!

I'm glad you like the new word...I can't wait to see what people will do.
Yay Easter!

My youngest daughter only woke up for a couple of hours at like 2 am every night when she was first born. She had those huge eyes and I was sure she was an alien and on her planet everyone was nocturnal. Nice shots.

I like the little aliens. They're all "Who me?" and rolling around and stuff. :)

Nice word, McFreshy-fresh! That'll be fun. Also, EXTREMELY appropriate for Spring, methinks.

Churlita: That is so sweet...your little nocturnal visitor :-)

K_Sra: They are looking rather dazed there.
I'm glad you like the word. I'm hoping people will feel inspired :-)
