Google Image Labeler, a new feature of Google Image Search that allows you to label random images to help improve the quality of Google's image search results.

Lovely collection.

Nooo, it was just like coincidental, seriously.

(And no - but it would be nice to say:
I've had 11 actual boyfriends and 135 pashes)

I am a bamboo knitting needle!
... solid bamboo poles of random ...

... always speckled bamboo blinds
Sometimes random is the best pattern
