It can be tough to find inspiration, even when you're looking for it. (Especially when you're looking for it.) So I would like, in this thread and for the duration of NaNo, to provide a daily inspiration from the debris of my day to day life, and invite others to comment upon mine or share their own. These are mostly "found objects." I did not invent these myself.

To provide an oddity from your own world, invoke the words, "In the interests of inspiration, I present you with:" and then offer your non-sequitur. I'll begin.

In the interests of inspiration, I present you with the strangest spam header I've ever seen in my inbox:

"Robot rose computer pyramid record horse tongue."

Thank you.

A gentleman on a bicycle, wearing a mismatched hat and jacket, shoes and trousers, dressed gaudily enough to fit in with a pantomime but not gaudily enough to be stared at on the streets untill you're too close. And if you're that close, you can see the gold ankh hanging around his chest. He zips past, grins, and winks. he knows you've spotted him for an outsider.

Very slightly modified encounter I had a few weeks back.

    A young man sits behind the counter of a theatre concession stand.  It's a slow day, and he's just doing his best not to nod off.  He catches a hint of movement in the corner of his eye, at the entrance where the theatre meets the surrounding mall.  He smiles, happy to have a customer that will help him kill a bit of time. 
    Turning he finds that the customer in question is a boy, roughly twelve years old, who rides into the room on a bicycle.  The concessionist's jaw falls open.  Even if the kid didn't have enough common sense to know not to ride indoors, how the heck did he get this far without being stopped by mall security?!  Overcoming his initial shock the man calls out,
    "Kid, get off that bike!"  With a clear tone of irritated indignation.  The child is completely surprised.  His face seems to say, 'oh, was this not allowed?' as he quickly stops and dismounts.
    "Sorry!"  He calls before walking his bike to the exit on the opposite side of the theatre.

-Actually happened to me about a month back, I was the concessionist.

I offer the following oddity:

This Geeksplosion is apparently a furries vs. Klingons bowling tournament. Two things:

1) Who won??

2) How did the furries get their fingers in the bowling ball holes?

This event is actually covered in, I believe, episode 10 of the excellent furry podcast that can be found here:

And now, I present you with the following. I discovered this on a random surf through YouTube. I'd never heard of it before, but there it was.

It's so  nice to have a wolf around the house.
