Throwing random crap up against the wall until it looks interesting, hoping to stop before I go past peak interesting and descend into the valley of “WTF did you do?”

[EDIT: This was written AND FREAKIN’ PUBLISHED last night at about 23:40! Now WordPress is asking if I want to publish or delete it. I swear, i pushed the “Publish” button and saw it go. I was wondering why no one had mentioned it… I’m telling you, I’m needing a much better class of hallucination.]
I knew this would probably be coming, because I subscribe to her Patreon account (worth every penny, I love her and her work and her music and her art and her TED talk and her book) but I had sort of forgotten in all of the hubbub. (Stupid freakin’ hubbub!) Then I started seeing other people saying they had gotten theirs and after a while I was wondering if I might have gotten missed or lost. But again, even in that I was so caught up in the 9 to 5 chaos (or in my case, the 7 to 24 chaos) that even that didn’t get through to me.
But I recognized that sigil. I tried very hard not to squeee in the post office. I buried it in with the bills, magazines, and junk mail and waited until I got home to double check.
Even without the return address label, the stamps would have given it away.
‘Tis a thing to be cherished. And I will!
A couple of days ago I posted an odd creation I had made by goofing around with IrfanView, which I was using because I’m slowly setting up a new computer and I hadn’t re-installed Photoshop yet.
That situation was corrected this evening.
To test the
firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station installation I took something random off of my Twitter feed tonight and started goofing around with it.
But it’s a game – you can play!
Here’s your clue – the original photo contained someone named in a Tom Lehrer song – can you see them and who is it?
For anyone who’s a regular here, I’m not sure if this is as hard as it might appear at first. We’ll see.
a. What I saw in my dreams last night after eating way too much really spicy jambalaya at The Long-Suffering Wife’s birthday dinner
b. What I saw in the mirror this morning when I was awake this morning after eating way too much really spicy jambalaya at The Long-Suffering Wife’s birthday dinner
c. Something bizarre which truly did involve no PhotoShop manipulation – because I haven’t yet re-installed PhotoShop on my new computer so I had to see what IrfanView could do with it
d. A combination of infrared and gamma ray images of Donald Trump’s hair.
f. All of the above
