The Mysterious Package revealed at last

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. What you are seeing is indeed a jigsaw puzzle of a Turkmenbashi propaganda poster. Now I'm sure you see why I took so much care in handling and assembling it. Next to a giant twirling statue of the Turkmenbashi, I doubt that there is anything more inspiring. 

My next step is getting it framed so's I can hang it on my office wall. I'll show you pictures of that when I've hung it.

I know you're probably jealous, but try to remember that envy is one of the 7 deadly sins. Besides, you too can buy your very own Turkmenbashi propaganda poster jigsaw puzzle if you want one to admire and impress visitors.

Below are a couple of details from the puzzle. You can click on them to get an enlarged view.

Mysterious Package progress report

Regular readers may remember that I received a Mystery Package some time ago. Although I carefully opened it and showed a tiny bit of it as a teaser, my trip to San Francisco prevented me from revealing anything further about it. Until now that is!

My more perceptive readers correctly surmised it was a puzzle of some sort. I can now report that, upon returning from my vacation, I've spent several hours each night working on assembling the jigsaw puzzle. The above picture shows my progress to date.

I'll confess to being a little behind schedule on the project. I had hoped to have it done already, but it turns out that the picture being revealed is so profound, so uplifting, and so sublime, that I find myself leaning back and meditating on the wonder of it all as soon as I fit a new piece into the ever expanding puzzle.

At any rate, I'm making progress and soon it will all be revealed. 
 

Something wonderful this way comes

Friday, May 27, 2011

I've been waiting for some time for it to arrive, and there it was today, propped against my door when I arrived home. I nearly wept for joy. I can't tell you what it is yet, only that it is something wonderful.

Oh, you might try to guess -- a page from a long lost Leonardo Da Vinci notebook? An original copy of the Declaration of Independence? Nude pictures of Bea Arthur? 

Trust me, try as you might, you'll never guess what sort of magnificent thing is inside the package. You'll just have to be patient and watch this space for further details.
