Hi! It's me again. It's been over a week since I've posted and you wanna know why? It's because I was off work from the 22nd through the 1st, and I had a strange phenomenon happen to me. My brain quit working. Not totally. I wasn't sitting on the floor slobbering or anything, but I was pretty darn close. I realized how relaxing it was not to be at work and not have to really think about anything and answer 40 million questions a day, and then my brain figured out that was some good shit and decided to take a little break. Break time's over. Now on to some burning questions from the comment section. Well, maybe not really burning. Maybe just smoldering.
What are Flower Frogs?
These are flower frogs. --------->
You set them in the bottom of a vase, and then you poke the flower stems in the holes and they hold your arrangement in place. Except for the spiky ones. You just jab your flowers into the spikes. They also make good weapons.
Along with flower frogs, I also like bird cages, which brings me to...
Clarence the Faux Crow.
When I first got Clarence he was sleek and bright eyed and sat perched on my inspiration board over my art table. He would sit there and watch me make weird stuff. After a few years, Clarence started looking a little ruffled, and not so healthy. When I moved into my apartment, I wired him to a set of shelves and he stood guard over the kitchen. One day I moved him to dust underneath him and his wing fell off. Then a week or so later his other wing fell off. I tried pushing them back in, but they kept falling off, and his wire wouldn't hold him to the shelf anymore. So, I just laid Clarence down on his back and didn't pay much attention to him until Thomas walked by one day and said, "Nice dead bird, you got there."
That statement stewed in my warped mind for awhile, and I decided that if Clarence was going to be dead, he was going to be properly dead. So I glued his wings back in, glued him upside down to a perch in one of my bird cages, then built him a shrine. Weird? Of course, but it makes me laugh. I don't know how long I'll keep it up. I guess until it doesn't make me laugh anymore. Creepy? Heck yeah. Which is the exact reason it makes me laugh. So, without further ado. Here is the Shrine to Clarence the Faux Crow.
Even now, looking at the picture it makes me laugh, so Clarence may hang around for a bit longer. I figure he's a good way to keep company from staying too long. Especially if I twitch a lot every time someone looks at him.
Video Killed the Radio Star
It makes me way happy that you guys enjoy my videos, and I promise there will be more coming as soon as my brain is back up to speed (which shouldn't take too long). And, the really fun part is, I bought a camcorder! I haven't even started to think of all the possibilities.
Thanks to the lovely Shedevil and Heather, I have two new virgin mama sightings, so I'll be posting about them maybe tomorrow. Depends on the brain.
But until then....
Babs - who hopes that every single one of you had a wonderful holiday time. Yes, even you. And you know who you are.
