The hard part for me was that I couldn’t find my copy of the dissertation that I wanted. I was looking for my signed copy of Templer’s Stair Shape and Human Movement doctoral dissertation (New York, NY: Columbia University, 1975) which I thought I had inside my hardbound copy of his classic book.
But it wasn’t there! I thought I might’ve misplaced it in some of my other reference books,
but in the end I just had to settle for slapping the PNG on this newer paper that was sitting in my stack of pending reviews. It doesn’t have a “The,” but it still makes as much sense as is possible, I guess.

Well, I was out in P.E.I. doing some volunteer lifeguarding at my favourite beach, and Dean came along and started making a nuisance of his self. I had to give him a warning ticket and tell him it was time to head back to the potato fields.

It is a GIF that I made for The Daily Create, tdc2023, which said to make a better rhyme for a bad one that my TrueFriend (who has not yet applied for her badge) Audrey Watters (@audreywatters, on Twitter) said was the worst one in the world. But since I am a polite TrueFriend , I did not actually want to say it, so I made a GIF one instead and you can fill in the blank with your imagination.

One time I got myself some glasses and moustache just like UNCLE Jim (@jimgroom, on Twitter) and snuck in beside him for a photobomb. Then, when he did a wink, I did one too! It was a fun time. That UNCLE Jim is a #TrueFriend, and you can see how he is doing the finger thing to say that we are tight, like two peas in a pod.
This GIF is like the one on Reverend Devilhorns, by D’Arcy Norman. But in this one, you can see me, too. Plus, I wink, just like UNCLE Jim.
It has all kinds of useful things that he should have with him when he is on missions, if he is well-prepared.
It has things like scissors and tape and glue for making GIFs and other art, plus a lightning connector cable for his phone when he forgets it all the time. Then, band-aids in case he gets a boo-boo, string in case he needs it for that special time, things like sunscreen to avoid the bad rays when hiking up in the pretty mountains that he is always making pictures of, plus 3D glasses for looking at my 3D art. It is always good to have a snack along if you are on a mission, so I put in crackers and some cheese strings. I have left a bit of room in the bag for him to add some other things. But plus, so that he can keep his self hydrated, I gave him his very own water bottle from the ds106zone store, from when we did The DS106ZONE back in 2013.
“Making Art from Stairs,” animated GIF by @iamTalkyTina
The Daily Create, tdc2010, asks us to start with one word and end with another by chasing a phrase. Chose to start with the word Stair and have ended with Art. Plus, I made an Art out of it using The Noun Project. Plus, it is a bonus GIF.
