Pissing the Night Away

Time for our weekly Saturday Scavenger Hunt! Many thanks to K_Sra for choosing this week's word, UP! In general, an optimistic word. Things are looking UP! Movin' on UP! I guess growing UP can be kind of a mixed bag. And pushing a boulder UP an incline for all eternity would be discouraging.

Anyway, it seemed I could only conceive of the word in the most literal sense. I just sat down at my desk, looked straight UP, and took this picture:Looking UP indoors can be very exciting...like, say you are at the Sistine Chapel. Or somewhere with a dome, or skylight, or even an interesting lighting treatment. Here, we get the tile ceiling, emergency lights, and a vent that blows frigid air directly on me at inconvenient times. Now you know better than to look UP around here :-)

Here is a loving portrait of my morning coffee. It is a real pick-me-UP. It comes from 7-Eleven, as you can plainly see...but what you can't see is that around here we call it Gucci Coffee, because it is fancy enough for us. Strictly UPper crust.

And one more...because I can hear you all asking...what about the children? Where are the children? Um, right? Well, whatever...Please enjoy Little Prince sitting UP and giving us his cutest smile. Doesn't that lift your heart UP? Yeah!

Thank you for meeting UP with me here. I always, always appreciate your visits. Have a great weekend and make sure to check with K_Sra to see who will be tagged for next week.

I should be able to get a post for UP done today.

Nice photos and connections.

Le Petit Prince is very photogenic. A natural!

I love your take on the word. The one of the ceiling reminds me of how I have to stare at the ceiling at the dentist's office whenever I get a checkup. It's either focus on that, or listen to the hygienist talk about her divorce while she picks absentmindedly at my gums.

Little prince is adorable! And coffee is a great 'upper,' hehe, good choice :)

Mmmmm, coffee. Great UPlifting pictures.

Dmarks: Your UP (Upper Peninsula) post was great fun. I'm always so happy when you play.

Tara: Isn't he?
haha! I can picture you sitting in the dentist's chair desperately counting tiles as your hygienist drones on :-D

Sebastien: Thanks, Brother Bear. Caffeine is definitely my drug of choice.

AlienCG: Oh yes, Mr. CoffeeGround...another fan of the dark brew :-) Thank you.

Sebastien said...

There is nothing, and I mean nothing, like the smell of fresh coffee in the morning.

Churlita said...

I may just do this one tonight. It will be way late, but it's not like I'm not used to being lame.

I love your baby boy sitting up pic. So cute. I don't drink coffee, but I get my caffeine in tea form and it's one of my favorite pick-me-ups.

Great great photos. Sorry about the air on your neck..

laura b. said...

Sebatien: You're right. The smell alone helps.

Churlita: That'd be great if you do it :-)
I love Little Prince's dimples...and I love tea, too...but not as much as the dimples...

NoRegrets: Thanks! I keep my big sweater at my chair for air emergencies :-)

Haha! I love the literalism of the first shot. Thanks for that. It made me laugh. And then it made me look up at my ceiling. Which made me laugh again.

Also, that little Prince is a charmer! :)
