I Almost Had A CoWAbunger

3 Oct

This week’s award winner is Lisa, the Alien Hippy, for giving me the biggest surprise of the week.

My binary post, 1.10.11 (there’s a phrase I never expected to write), posed a question.  Call me silly but I didn’t actually expect an answer.  But Lisa had one:

Hello lovely Tilly,
The binary number 11011 is equivalent to decimal 27 hexadecimal 1B.
I’m here because you make me giggle and I like to giggle….LOL
Love and hugs. Lisa. xx :)

I can already hear you complaining that she ought to be disqualified for paying compliments, but I like her, so she isn’t.

Lisa writes two great blogs: one on coping with Asperger’s, which she only learned she had as an adult; and one that showcases her poetry and fabulous art work (a piece of which I hope to own one day).  I recommend that you pop over and say ‘hi’.

This is one of her pieces; it’s wonderful:

Well done, Lisa, not only for surprising me, but also for (presumably) knowing the answer to one of life’s ridiculous questions.  Here’s your award:

Apologies that it is a picture of a cow’s backside; it was difficult to find a photo of a binary cow.

To compensate, and because you like to giggle, here’s another:

And one more:

    Way to go Lisa! Did you know if you Google giggle it leads right to Tilly Buds blog? Not really, but I just love to say google giggle.

    The real accomplishment is to have complimented Tilly Bud and gotten away with it. Please tell her that she’s world class funny, but you didn’t hear it from me.

      ‘google giggle’ came up with this:

      ‘Google’s Gigabyte Giggle?’ from 2004.

      Not very exciting. Shame really. Thought it may give me a joke site at the very least.

      Good job you didn’t say that, Al…

      I love ‘google giggle’ 😀

    Hey . . . no fair!

    (1) She complimented TIlly without being automatically disqualified.
    (2) She received three awards in exchange for one astute comment (coupled with compliments).

    Hmm . . . what’s going on?
    Where’s Tilly?

    Have the comment policies been changed?

    Good pick, Tilly!
    I love that piece of Artwork you’ve featured.

    It would look great on your wall AND give you something to contemplate while tossing back 7 boxes of Birthday Maltesers!

        Nancy: I guess it proves there are exceptions to every rule. Lisa is so sweet that I can’t bring myself to bar her.

        Siggi: 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Haha, global warming axis of evil, I love it!
    Pardon my French, but shouldn’t it say “global warming asses of evil”?

    Thanks Tilly, and everyone who commented here.
    You all made me smile and I love the farting cows Tilly.
    Sorry I’m late I had a VERY BUSY DAY yesterday looking after my little nephew who is a hyperactive dinosaur….Rwwwwaaaaarr!!!
    That particular painting, I painted for my friend, I like painting fishes.
    I can paint you a picture Tilly or make you some fractals if you like.
    I’ll try to remember next time I shutdown that you like my art.
    I find that very encouraging and in my shutdowns I really need positive.
    Thank you again.
    Love and hugs.
    Lisa. xx 🙂

    Congratulations Lisa!!

    I totally love your picture.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
