Badges and Things

Original idea and images credited to J.N. Murphy.

NOTE :

If (when) adding these to your person profile, some adjustment will be needed to have them fit reasonably. Adding the parameters for size= and align= will help, but the captions on some will need an extra <br /> or two to keep these "badges" correctly aligned to right or left.

Squirrel with a hoard of shiny gems instead of nuts. Includes the words "Collects Shiny Things".
Collector of Shiny Things
. . . Ooooh, Look!
Suggested size is 225, with the alignment to the right (|size=225|align=r), which makes the "badge" a little narrower than sticker width. So, for the "Collector of Shiny things" it would be : {{Image|file= Badges_20200401-22.png |align=r|size-225|caption='''Collector of Shiny Things<br /> . . . Ooooh, Look!''' |label=Squirrel with a hoard of shiny gems instead of nuts. Includes the words "Collects Shiny Things". }} which would give you - - -

A small, Happy, Imp is lovingly feeding flowers to an Art Bug.  It is clearly an Art Bug because it has paint palettes in place of normal wings, and brush heads for antennae — and it has  paintbrushes on the leaf where it sits eating a flower.  Art Bug has already started chomping on the flower it holds, because there is a bitten petal still partially hanging from its mouth.  The Imp is clearly Happy, as it has a heart-shaped mouth, and its heart is visible on its chest.  There are also several hearts floating across towards Art Bug.

The Story Behind The Badge

I received the following by email, with the statement that the following story "explains my day today!!!" --

Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D:
Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

This is how it manifests:

I decided to wash my car. As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the hall table. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the trash can under the table, and notice that the trash can is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the trash first. But then I think, since

I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the trash anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my checkbook off the table and see that there is only one check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking.

I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the coke, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need to be watered. I set the Coke down on the counter, and I discovered my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning. I decided I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, we will be looking for the remote, but nobody will remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

I splash some water on the flowers, but most of it spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.

Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.

At the end of the day: the car isn't washed, the bills aren't paid, there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter, the flowers aren't watered, there is still only one check in my checkbook, I can't find the remote, I can't find my glasses, and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.

Then when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired. I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.

Do me a favor, will you? Forward this message to everyone you know, because I don't remember to whom it has been sent.

P.S. The darned keys were in the refrigerator -- I have no idea how they got there.
