By the way...

The best illustration of alcohol I have ever seen.

The entire series of photos was awesome. This is just a little winter favorite of mine.

Back when I was in high school, I learned to make a simple little origami box by attaching together six little origami diamond-ish shapes. This is the sort of thing I'm talking about, although her pattern and mine use slightly different methods for slightly different results.

Anyway, my box looks like so.

And then I lost all sense of perspective...Collapse )

Okay, so, nice and simple. Two picture frames. I took out the glass and backing from a Goodwill frame, painted it black, and stapled/super-glued window screening to the back.

Earring frameCollapse )

The second is a plain, decoratable frame from a craft store, covered with pretty scrapbooking paper. I think it's missing something, but I'm not sure what. My mother suggested "A Pirate's Life for Me" or some other Pirates of the Caribbean reference, but I really can't decide.

'Cuz, you know, it's bigger on the inside? *look around the audience* Tough crowd.

Anyway, I made a cartoonish little stuffed TARDIS.

Woohoo! They fit short, tall, grande / 8, 12, 16 oz / small, medium, large coffee cups. Or the ceramic "I am not a paper cup!" cups. I get excited about these things. :) The problem now is what to do with them...

I love this star fabric, but (a) it didn't photograph well, and (b) I used really thick fabric as a liner, and it ended up too tight.

So, it's official. I'm going to Yosemite from the 30th to the 4th. I hadn't posted about it yet, because I was wavering. It's going to cost at least 2/3 a month's rent, and I'm not very employed. With my breathing problem, hiking is going to be slow-going, and embarrassing. Those kinds of things.

On the other hand, I'd been promising to visit CJ for...well...since he moved down there. And one of my friends, a California native, flipped out and was like "YOU HAVE TO GO!" And I thought about when I'll get a chance to have fun again.

Then my parents were like, wait, weren't you going to house-sit for us?

Then Joey asked what would happen if someone called and asked for an interview while I was there?

Then Tim said any job worth interviewing for would totally understand a "Actually, I'm out of town. I'll be available next Monday." I think he underestimates my desire for a job, but I'm only going to be gone four business days, and I'm not even sure anyone is going to call.

Then my parents announced that, after getting Mom's super special National Board Certification bonus, they had decided to share the love and give my sister and I some money.

I bought tickets tonight.

-I got my muscle relaxants today. And I suddenly realized - my muscles are relaxed. I'd especially been having trouble with the muscles that move my jaw. I can picture them - and the entire area feels just...normal. But I don't feel sleepy, which I wanted to. It's 3:10.
-Today, I am going to turn in an app at the bookstore. They're hiring one part-time position, and I don't know that they'll want me.
-Also today, I am going to go to the graduation fair. Get some announcements, and maybe even a photo taken.
