Also, back on the art/eyesore theme: TIL that the first of Wyland's 100+ whale murals, on the wall of a Laguna Beach hotel, was later painted over as an "eyesore." I mean, c'mon, really?
But since then, a friend of his bought the building, and he's recreating the original mural. On canvas this time, so he can move it if anything happens to the wall.
Interesting: A few miles from Hearst Castle, a trash collector spent 50 years cobbling together his house out of junk and found objects. As Cambria became more trendy in the 1970s, neighbors wanted him to tear down the multi-level "eyesore," while others saw Nitt Witt Ridge as a folk art monument. It's still there, and still a controversy within the city and its historical society.
Modern use of the word "temper" is weird. It's like if we used "balance" most of the time to refer to something that had fallen over.
A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"Greetings," it said, "um. We apologise for abducting your leader. We did not notice her coming aboard when we were here last week."
A cat emerged from the spaceship and sat down to clean her paws.
"Here she is," the alien said.
