OMEN or just Weird

I don't think this rates up there with finding an image of the Virgin Mary in a toasted cheese sandwich but check this out:

The foam residue from a cup of hot chocolate I had yesterday dried in the image of a runner with mountains in the background! Is this a good thing? Should I continue to run? I don't know if I should wash the cup or go on a national tour? Will I need crowd control in my neighborhood? Will I too be able to go on FOX and wish the final five contestants on American Idol good luck and thank AI for all their work raising money for the sick, the poor, and Simon? Help me! Help me answer all these questions!

Thanks Aisling!

Due to the incredible world wide attention I'm sure this post will attact please try to limit your comments to just one (1). Just kidding Aisling! I've already attracted International interest with Aisling's comments!

Hey isn't that the guy with the running image cup!

Will late night TV be calling soon? I'm sure of it!

Thomas said...

It's predicting the future! You will be running a mountainous ultra.

Honestly!!!

Remember, you heard it here first.

That runner looks pretty chesty! Are you getting work done?

Sarah said...

Don't wash that cup! : ) Have you considered Ebay? This is your opportunity to cash in! : ) ; )

P.S. I hear ya on the parent program thing. I work for a college and its the kids with the hovering parents who are the most messed up! : )

Journey to a Centum said...

Wow Arthur, I hadn't noticed but I think you are right! It must be a shapely female runner! The value of the cup on EBAY will soar with this news!

Backofpack said...

This is it! This is how we'll build our fortune so we can quit our jobs and travel the world running marathons! Or, since the cup shows mountains, trail runs. (I'm surprised you didn't notice how the shapely female runner, since she looks so much like me.)

I hope you haven't washed that mug!! Encase it to protect it! A few years back, an ice cream machine in a Houston apartment complex broke down and the contents started melting. Soon there was an image of the Virgin Mary on the concrete floor in the melted goo. Only 500 people were able to view it before it disappeared. Protect that mug now! Or face the consequences....:0

I think you need to work on your form. Kinda reminds me of Rob at the beach....after walking onthe prickly weeds. Remember that starfish?

i'd spend at least $600 for it. when the economy recovers.

if you don't wash it, they will come.

I can hear faint strains of the theme tune to the Twilight Zone in the background...can you!

What a work of art. It holds deep meanings for us ultra runners. Don't sell it! It will make a great top image for your blog

Along with your fame on American Idol, your fortune on ebay, your new worldwide cult following of obsessed cocoa drinking trailrunners, and the throngs of curious HOA member presently standing outside your residence, you may also want to consider movie rights. I'll bet Mr. M. Night Shyamalan could script up something eerily bizarre and creepy like he always does. Something about a deranged trailrunner that forms a special emotional bond with the crusty dried up cocoa residue caricature formed on the inside of his mug? And this causes him to be able to run great distances through time and space and connect with those from far off planets. But the catch is, nobody can see him except a dead boy, a blind girl, and Mel Gibson. Oh, and he's made of glass. Very fragile. Hey have a great time at Big Sur! Go kick some more 29 year old ass! ; )

copy it and make it a tatoo man

George said...

I think the alzheimers from long distance running has finally taken over. Good luck at Big Sur. Slow down and enjoy the views. Actually, I think a tattoo of that image would be cool.

Ryan said...

Holy runner...you got the magic. Have a great weekend running Big Sur.

Happy travels

Mama said...

That explains the comment at Starbucks the other night. Hope Big Sur goes well for you.

See you Thursday.

Be free,
Lorri

I like Olga's idea. You could also market t-shirts with this new "virgin mary" logo. Actually, in all seriousness, you should take a clearer picture of it in some nice sunlight with the cup on a nice bright tablecloth backdrop, and frame the picture to decorate your kitchen!

It is definitely an omen. A bad one... about death. Or maybe a Death Race??? :-)

Makita said...

How cool is that!? :D

Jon said...

My AlphaBits cereal spoke to me once in this way this morning! It said Ooooooooo...hang on. Sorry, I was eating Cheerios. My bad!

And that cup does look really cool. I'm too daft to actually gaze at the chocolatey foam residue and too busy actually licking around the rim of the cup.
