Hair dying ritual


Friends of Trunk Space swimming party

I'm a criminal,

but only of the charming variety.

At long long last, I knuckled down and opened a wee Etsy shop. Ebay has left me terrified of those sorts of affairs, what will all that ugly layout and great masses of messy code. But, into the breech I went and came out pretty ok in the end.

Other activities of note:
Set which you really ought to take a look at.
Repository of photos documenting activities and friends.
Document attesting to my presence on another website.

It's made from paper


My friend David and I got a tad over enthusiastic about the Mail Art show at Trunkspace, opening this Friday. I had this clever idea that I told him about, and I only planned on making one or two heads. But he had never done paper mache in his entire life, so we went overboard a bit, and there still more heads to go.

We collaborated on some, and did some on our own. The washy brown ones are mine, the bold inky ones are his, and the ones that are a bit of both we worked on together, staying up too late and drinking chocolate tea.

These are made from the College Times, because they have no staples in their publications.

Coat monster

A friend loaned me these rejected passport photos, and I used them as models:


These were made a few days ago, by me. Either I'm terrible at painting flies or people have no idea what bees look like, because a couple people have commented on how cute my "bee mugs" are. Bees have four wings, not two, you silly people. Flies are the only winged insect that have only two wings. Even coleopterans (beetles, my dear) have elytra, which are chitinous nonfunctional upper wings, so they officially still have four wings. My computer committed sepukku, and so I can't get onto Horseflesh until after I find my friend who's hosting it, so let me know if you want to buy any of these in the meantime. I'll consider trades, too, if you're feeling adventurous.

This last one is from my friend's cafe in Couer D'Alene, Bella Rose.

This speaks for itself, I believe.

Off the top of your head, without referring to a dictionary, do you know what the word "predilection" means? What about the word "solecist"? These are not hypothetical questions.

Half cents

Warren Ellis blogged about me. Granted, it was in a completely perfunctory name and image posting only minimal information given sort of a way. But that isn't what counts. What counts here is that Warren Ellis blogged about me. My brother is going to be so jealous.

Oh, Kinkos. The relationship I have with you is just not healthy. You charge 8.5 cents per copy, although you insist, at least in print, that you only charge 8 cents. Are you saying I can't do simple addition, Kinkos? Really, now you're just being insulting. I had to account for those extra half cents, Kinkos, and that's why I took your gluesticks. Really, you drove me to it.

Gentle readers, I direct your attention to my newly added list of friend's blogs over there on your right. Those people, no doubt, have far more interesting things to say than I.
