Kaja-goo-goo-googly eyes

After two weeks of staring at an eeny-weeny laptop screen, my eyes are having a hard time adjusting to the relative enormity of my big ol' flat panel monitor. I feel like I'm trying to take in a huge cinemascopic monster, despite the fact that it's just 19 inches of power, power, power.

Figure 1138: How my eyeballs feel right now.
Incidentally, I once won a Lucasfilm/Star Wars fan club art contest
redrawing the above space slug as "Ollie" (from Kukla, Fran, and Ollie)
attempting to consume the Millennium Falcon. I was on Cloud Nine.

Figure 2187: Oliver "Ollie" Dragon.
Oh, c'mon. Puh-leeze tell me there's somebody out here
old enough to remember Kukla, Fran, and Ollie!!!

Figure "Crap, I'm older than I thought":
Kukla, Fran, and Ollie.
(BTW, "kukol'" is the Russian word for puppet.)

You know, maybe it's not the big screen freaking my eyes out of my head. Maybe it's just the Starbucks coffee... or the fact that I am rapidly turning into a huge old dinosaur!!

Whatever the reason, I think I need some Tylenol. Or a shot of tequila.

Raising hand, I timidly admit to being old enough to remember "Kukla, Fran, and Ollie".
