She Wasn’t Impressed

      No Comments on She Wasn’t Impressed

The camera app that came with my phone has an option where you can tap in the centre of the screen, and it will focus on whatever it’s centered upon. I was looking at Poison there and gave it a go, and came out with this overexposed hilarity. I mean, it does pick her out better than it would have… Read more »

Phteven the Unicorn

      No Comments on Phteven the Unicorn

Now, I didn’t expect much from a cheap Adopt-a-Unicorn toy, but I didn’t expect the latest incarnation of the Phteven meme. I mean, did the toy designer ever lay eyes on a horse before? Smalls called it adorable, which was sweet of her. Everything about it is so wonky that like… I don’t even know. *laughs* I’ve got it tucked… Read more »

She’s Jerry-rigged

      No Comments on She’s Jerry-rigged

Today has been a surprisingly productive day. I managed to get a really good amount of work done; I’m almost to the first ‘caught up’ point that I want to get to. I should easily get past that tomorrow, barring emergencies or the like. I was surprised to be productive in part because I am still in crash from the… Read more »

We Need a Sign

      No Comments on We Need a Sign

Today’s photograph comes to you compliments of my trip to the hospital this morning (more on that in a bit). I was surprised to notice that the street sign appeared to be missing, so I took a picture. After all, my obsession with signs *can* include an absence of, so. Now, imagine my surprise to find out it’s actually been… Read more »

Twinkle Twinkle

      No Comments on Twinkle Twinkle

To my annoyance, I cannot currently find many of the stitch markers that I’ve made. I know that several of them broke because the gauge of the wire I was using was too fine, but I plan on experimenting with that in the near future. And, in general, just to make a few more markers. I like making them, so… Read more »

The last couple of school runs, Littler has decided that we were going an alternate route home. I don’t really mind, because yanno, change of scenery. This little flower has been chilling there for at least a couple of weeks now. I suspect it will be gone sooner rather than later as the weather continues to descend into winter. Honestly,… Read more »

Blanket Monster

      No Comments on Blanket Monster

Today, I did an excellent job of being a blanket monster. I didn’t have any reason to leave the house, and had every reason to be curled up in my chair, so I opted for style and comfort. I didn’t end up being as productive work-wise as I had hoped for, but that’s fine too. In numbers it looked worse… Read more »

It Tricked Me!

      No Comments on It Tricked Me!

The morning started out icy and bright, assuring me that the overnight sub-freezing temperatures promised occurred. I even fancied that it snowed a bit overnight, even though that absolutely wasn’t going to happen. But if I could use it to pry myself out of a nice warm bed to peek out the window and confirm this, then it was a… Read more »

Ninja Hugs

      2 Comments on Ninja Hugs

There is a… for a lack of a better phrase… a toddler meme called ‘Johnny Johnny’. As I have a only just not a toddler, we all know it well. Instead of asking her if she was eating sugar or candy, I asked her if she was hugging her father. This was her approach to it before responding to me…. Read more »

That Could Have Gone Better

      No Comments on That Could Have Gone Better

Since tomorrow is Bonfire Night, that means we’ve had fireworks going off for at least the past week. I figured with as many as are going off tonight that I’d be able to get a good picture to use for this post… as you can see, I was wrong. *laughs* Any time that I made it outside, no matter how… Read more »
