KarPaiTwenMo: Week Two

KarPaiTwenMo: Week Two: Sanctum - Digital Artwork by Karen Gadient

I didn’t realize how I’d feel once the holiday season started creeping in. The mall is already playing Christmas music and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. It’s actually bad enough it’s Thanksgiving when you’ve lost someone close to you.

Anyway, I’m not making more posts about how sad I am. I’m sad. No surprise. Grief sucks. Also no surprise. I’m not fishing for sympathy comments.

However, if you want to comment a funny joke, I’m all ears. Sillier the better!

Speaking of jokes… let me share one straight from my dentist’s office—my dentist, by the way, is amazing and will cure your fear of dentistry if you have any—so if you’re the Phoenix area, check them out—they may also have kittens. Yes, kittens. Well, cats. Our two little kitty boys were fostered by my dentist, no joke. She still has their momma. My dentist is awesome.

Wait. The joke!

A mushroom walks into a bar.
Bartender: We don’t serve your kind here.
Mushroom: Why not? I’m a FUN-GUY.

You may have groaned, but I’ll bet you’ll pass that one along. ;)

Oh, artwork. Yeah, it’s been like pulling teeth (OMG ANOTHER DENTIST REFERENCE) but I made five more pieces of art. Once again, I hate three of them. I’m glad I have more time to pull together a show of twenty.

However, I did love two of them. This time, so that you can actually see the detail, I’m sharing just one of them. I’ll probably post another soon. This is my second favorite (hey, gotta save something to show you later) and created entirely in Adobe Photoshop, which isn’t common for me, but go figure.

I call it ‘Sanctum‘. It’s an alien gateway/throne/dunno. I created it for a wonderful friend of mine (who has no blog to link to) who adores all things alien. Someday, the mothership may return for us. I hope they bring cookies.

  1. that’s beautiful creativity, no joke!

  2. Have you read Mindscape by Andrea Hairston? This could be the entrance to a Barrier corridor. Love it!

    And a joke for you:
    An older man walks into a bar wearing a stovepipe hat, a waistcoat and a phony beard. He sits down at a bar and orders a drink. As the bartender sets it down, he asks, “Going to a party?”

    “Yeah, a costume party,” the man answers, “I’m supposed to come dressed as my love life.”

    “But you look like Abe Lincoln,” protests the bartender.

    “That’s right. My last four scores were seven years ago.”

    Ba-dum-ching!

  3. That’s a stunning piece! More, I say! MORE! Oh, and here’s a cool joke I found the other day:

    A Higgs Boson walks into a church, and the priest yells, “Get out!” The Boson replies, “But you can’t have mass without me.” The priest retorts, “Actually, we can, because the Higgs mechanism contributes less than 0.1% of an atom’s mass. Most of the mass of an atom actually comes from the strong nuclear force.” The Higgs Boson, defeated, exits and knows better than to try that sneaky kinda crap again.

  4. That mushroom does seem fun. :-)

  5. As Richard Feynman once said, “On the infrequent occasions when I have been called upon … to play the bongo drums, the introducer never seems to find it necessary to mention that I also do theoretical physics.”

    I know that relates somehow…

  6. Very nice. Are you a Doctor Who fan? I’m so excited about the 50th Anniversary Special I can barely contain myself. I saw a little prequel today on YouTube. Amazing.

  7. Epicurme

    This has a certain “Lateralus” feel. Which I can only mean as a compliment.

  8. Real dentist jokes / wisdom tooth surgery:
    Me (freaked out, before surgery started): Oh, but please take care!
    1st Dentist: Of what?
    Me (double freaked out): Of me, of course!
    Dentist (laughing like hell): Ohhh… don’t be silly!

    Post-surgery joke, second dentist comes in and asks me:
    2nd Dentist: So, how do you feel?
    Me: [full of blood, unable to speak, mumbling whatever]…
    1st Dentist (answering on my behalf): Lighter!

      Hey, dentist jokes! Oh, it was awful when I had my wisdom teeth out. I don’t think a joke would have helped back then. ;)

  9. Another fun kid joke for you:

    Q: What did one ocean say to the other ocean?

    A: They didn’t say anything. They just waved.
    :-)

  10. Your art is beautiful and I love the joke! I’m going to share that one :)

  11. I see an angel in your lovely painting. :-)
