January desktop wallpaper
Once again, it’s a new year, and what better way to start a new year, than with a new desktop wallpaper calendar. We have a new submitter this month who goes by the name of “Nina Y”. Congratulations Nina on your winning entry.  As you can see, Nina has some very artistic skills and knows how to draw a really cool amoeba house. I’m reminded of a little poem about amoebas that goes like this:
The amoeba is so small you need
A microscope to see one
It hurts the eyes, but I'll concede,
I'd rather see then be one
They never sing or laugh or talk
Or eat fondu or quiche
And if you take one for a walk
You need a tiny leash
I know the thing must have a brain
Although I couldn't tell you where
It sure must be an awful pain
To be so unicellular

If that sounds familiar, that’s because it comes from Carnival of the Animals Part II found on the same album where Al narrates Peter and the Wolf. Put this wallpaper on your desktop right now and be reminded daily of the keenness of amoebas. Have you got an idea to create a calendar? All you need are the rules for submitting a calendar. You’ll just need the February calendar and site logo.

If you need a FREE image and photo editor that can save in Photoshop format, try using GIMP.

    That is really adorable.

  4. Weird Mario says:

    Such a pretty picture, thanks Nina

  5. ABN says:

    It IS very cute, but is Nina {The artist, not Al’s daughter}, like, four years old or something??

    Funny way to build up the suspense yesterday, Torsoboy.

  6. Torsoboy says:

    Jeez, I didn’t think there would be any controversy. Yes, it really was drawn by Al’s daughter who is three years old…four, next month.

  7. A Man says:

    That’s exactly how a 3 year old would draw:P Good job Nina!

  8. ABN says:

    OH!!!! Wow…uh…OK….I didn’t know that. Sorry about the “controversy”! I thought the artist was using “Nina Y” as a pseudonym.

  9. Patti says:

    I understood perfectly that it was indeed little Nina Yankovic, and it’s adorable! Nice signature, too! Thanks for posting the amoeba poem. You spelled “fondue” wrong, though. 😉

  10. happysteve says:

    Aw man, there goes my theory that it was actually Yanni using an anagram as a pseudonym. 😉

  11. Tracy A. says:

    Haha, Steve. That is why I became your friend. Right there. There’s your reason. Yanni.
