I get tired of using store-bought fabric, so made new custom fabric. (Play on the Tide laundry detergent logo.) Saw this on a t-shirt in my FB feed and made a mask, instead.

(P.S. The grinch image on the previous post - masks can be found all over the net for purchase - just do a search if you're inclined. I purchased the art work to make my own.)

My daughter can never remember where pupusas come from so I told her the mnemonic is to think of the similar shaped clocks in that Salvador Dali painting, I forget what it's called. An hour later I look at my feed and there's “The Persistence of Memory”. Thanks for listening google, just shout it out next time, my volume's off too!

Really? So you just make what appears to be a poor quality figure of some random guy/gal (pretty much whatever face and body shape happens to work out in the process), give it a what appears to be shitty paint job of somewhat similar outfit of the guy/gal you are trying to make, put his/her name on it and sell it. Yet it’s SHRN? Luls. What do people do with this fudge? And it isn’t ten bucks, it’s a bill and a half.

Fixed. Packaging seems to be the most complicated part of the process.

Also, if people pay that much for that, comrades in the great republic of China can do a much better job for a fraction of the price, probably hand made too.

COVID era concerts suck.

Isn’t it easier and probably more fun to watch something at home?

Was late cooking tomorrow’s food and realized I was out of green beans, so I made a quick run to the store. Standing in line, more than two meters away from the guy in front of me who is talking to the cashier, minding my own business. Couldn’t give two drymounts about their conversation, but hear her saying “didn’t that happen in New Zealand?” The guys goes “let me tell you what happened in New Zealand. They were celebrating 100 with no cases and then boom, they have (whatever he said) number of them. I decided to look at the map and sure enough, there are five new towers in Oakland. It’s poisoning by the towers” he says, “this information is being suppressed. It’s poisoning by the towers”. Drove back laughing out loud, by myself.

This same dude was in my face reaching for apples last week in the other store.

It’s like living a movie or something. What the drymount is wrong with people. I blame it on video games and sci-fi shows.
