The Epitomy of Quixotic

Posted by AlienCG on June 20, 2009

Hello and welcome to another thrilling week of the Saturday Scavenger Hunt.  This week’s word, as chosen by NoRegrets, is the $5 doozy, Quixotic.  I thought long and hard about this word and could not figure out a thing to post.  Then I look at the etymology of the word and a lightbulb (an environmentally friendly lightbulb) went off in my head.  I had to call Mom to see if it still existed….it did.  So I took my camera, went to the parents’ house, took a couple pictures, ate dinner, sat and talked, drove home, took a shower, typed up this post, sched…oh, crap, I got off track.  Anyway, the title says it all….

This would be an old woodcut figure of, you guessed it, Don Quixote.  I remember seeing this figure my entire life since it was a part of my parents’ Spanish style decor.

Here’s a closeup of the head.  It’s been painted, it is wood and it is Don Quixote, which happen to be the origin of this week’s word.  I’m glad I came up with something.  Thanks, NoRegrets, for an excellent choice of word, it was definitely a stumper.  Stay tuned to find who she tags.
