I Can't Look You In The Eye.

And with that, using pictures of eyeballs has become instantly obsolete in the Blogosphere. I want to thank all those who sent or posed for "ball" shots, especially all the cats (who I apparently know more of than men). I should have just called this post "The Girls and Cats of the CDP" and gotten it over with. Thank you for killing a genre with me. After resizing and pouring over these photos for the last 2 days, I can say with relative honesty that I'll never be able to look any of you in the eye again. I'm absolutely horrified with all of you.

By the way, I'll send a dollar to anyone who can identify all the photos, scout's honor (The Missus isn't eligible). Duke it out in the comments section.

A cool breeze is blowing through the open window of my rumpus room, and I'm getting ready to watch the rest of the NCAA Championship game. I sure hated Smarch, but April is shaping up to be something else entirely. We'll be throwing a party real soon here at the CDP Headquarters, and everyone who submitted an eye picture (cats too) is invited. When the last bit of filthy snow finally disappears and you can go for a sunlit walk at 7pm, you just know you'll be happy until late November. You are at the furthest possible point from next winter, so enjoy it before it's gone.

Move to Madison and have a drink with me.

Comments:
Our kitties have much more attractive eyes than those pictures suggest...
 
Yeah, there were better shots, but after a while I couldn't stand raking over all these pictures. God bless Photoshoppe'.

Stupid beautiful cats.
 
Could it be that whoever gets the most right wins the dollar?
 
We'll have to see, but I'm not one to bend the rules. I'd really like to give a dollar to someone, but they're going to have to earn it.
 
Okay, here's my guess. Send me my dollar.

You got 15 out of 19. I've gotten a couple e-mails from people guessing, but so far you're in the lead!

Can anyone do better than 15? I'll put the answers up in a few days, so get your answers to me ASAP! Either post here, or send to communistdance@yahoo.com.
 
No fair, my eyes are closed. And I'm drinking.

Probably the only kind of picture of me in existence, I suppose.

Thanks for hanging out this weekend. I don't know what I would have done otherwise. It's funny to note that we both doubted the validity of 'weedled', yet I didn't bother to challenge and gave you an 80 point lead off the bat. In a side note, you could have played 'tweedle' and had the same points. You had the blank tile and all...

Scrabble rematch, next time. I'm a lot better when I'm sober. I do have quite a bit of drunken Scrabble experience though.

*a*
 
Yup, "WEEDLED" was worth 78 points, and I could've just played "TWEEDLE" for the same amount of points (and it would have actually been a real word). The decisive third game of Screwdriver Scrabble will commence soon.

We all had a good time last weekend (I assume). We'll throw something in Madison soon enough and have everyone over again.

I bought No Kill No Beep Beep yesterday!
 
I don't think my last comment worked...grr.

You bought another Beep Beep CD???I sincerely hope that's not true...
 
No, Beep Beep is never coming out with another CD ever again, because they're not as good as they should have been.

I bought "No Kill No Beep Beep", the first Q and not U album. It's about damn time, I say!

That album makes me...how shall I put it...ravenous.
 
Oh, thank God! I can handle that!
 
You know it. They rock.
 
Who did I miss and again where is my dollar?
 
You got 4 wrong. I can't say who because then people will steal your correct answers. Actually, I don't think anyone else is going to play, but we'll see.

If nobody beats you by 8pm tonight, the dollar will be in the mail, I promise.
 
Again, I know them all!!!
 
That's why you can't play. You got a sneak ball peek.

No jokes, please. Too easy.

I can't believe I'm the only one nerdy enough to cheat this way. Surely that earns the dollar. This is assuming you used correct file names on all the jpegs. If this wins it, please use the dollar for soda pop and gum and enjoy a treat on me, Dexter Dooright.
 
Dexter Dooright. That's good stuff, right there.

You know, I was waiting for someone to check the file names, but it didn't happen until now. Sadly for you (and me, actually), the contest ended last night, and the dollar is already on the way to the winner.

The name of the first picture is "AliAsh", because even I didn't know who it was of. It was either my cousin (Ashli) or my sister (Alissa).

You win the gold nerd star!
 
Too bad! Correct spellings count! And you spelled my name the total wrong way! And I think one of the names is wrong because it's not his eye; it's the person in his movie's eye. This doesn't make any sense if you don't know where that particular picture came from.
 
I knew that AliAsh thing was going to be my downfall. I don't need your dollar anyway. I make dozens of dollars a week, so your dollar would be literally a drop in the bucket. Many apologies, Sheri. (ba dum bum)
 
I wish I made dozens of dollars a week. That self-employment thing is sa-weet!

I wouldn't be surprised if you were a closet millionaire, and the first step in becoming one is not giving away dollar bills. You've taught me something today, I'm hanging onto my money!

Sheri must be in a cranky mood today. What's up with that?

Someone around me should really consider naming their first girl AliAsh. It's got a cool ring to it.
 
Okay, I should get two dollars because I didn't cheat! And it was neither Ashli or Alissa Ha Ha.
 
You need to read my blog. jackietheblade.blogspot.com
You need some serious education in the political realm.
 
I just got done visiting your Blog. Good luck with all that.
 
I don't trust any blog that doesn't have at least one eyeball picture on it.
 
More eyeballs = More trust.

I think we're setting some sort of comment/hit record today. 26 comments and counting, and well over 100 visits today. Fantastic!
 
Yeah, that first eye is totally Jessie!
 
Yeah, it totally is. I was wrong on all counts. I guess nobody knew all the answers (Missus excluded).
 
I wasn't being cranky; I was just kidding! :) Since it really doesn't matter anymore, I was talking about the chick from the Andalusian Dog. It's not Dali's eye pictured; it's the chick in the movie's eye. God.... idiots! (That was supposed to be a Napolean Dynamite reference).
 
I didn't know that "chick's" name, so I just put "Dali". And now you know...the rest of the story. (That was supposed to be a Paul Harvey reference.)

I'm just kidding you, Shari. You know that! The next time you see me though, you can kick me in the ass for posting that darling picture of you sleeping.
 
I don't think this comment section is ready to be over yet.
 
Not by a long shot.
 
Will you be posting the answers for us people that are not nerdy enough to cheat?
 
Nope. I'm sending the dollar this week, though.
