Mayan calendar veggie tray

(a fail) Note to self: when preparing a plate to predict the end-times AND feed a crowd, use a larger platter and more structural foods.



Google socks at #LavaCon


The short answers are:

  • No, I don’t work for Google.
  • I got them at Maker Faire when it came through Austin a few years ago. Google was a vendor. (Maker Faire –> MAKE magazine –> O’Reilly media.)
  • Yes, I agree they are awesome. 🙂
  • The feet say “google sketchup: it doesn’t stink!”

    Now my question is: has anyone ever taken a pic of his or her own foot that doesn’t make it look like the end point of a cankle??

  • Too full of thoughts to craft

    Bah. I have too much fun stuff planned to even start in on one fun thing. I want to get back to knitting this Fall, sewing some things (refashioning and mending a big box of things I’ve held on to for far too long at this point), and straight-up crafting some things I’ve had on the brain for quite some time now. I’ve got niece birthday season upon me already!

    However, all I can think about is a playdream I’ve had on the brain: a treehouse at a renfest, selling all things air-related: flags, wind chimes, hammocks, whirlygigs. It would maybe even have a couple swings hanging below, just to pause upon. I would love to do this. Do I know how to build a treehouse? No, but that’s never a barrier. Do I know how to build a treehouse meant for accessibility and the general public’s safety? Uh.. problem. How about the first thing about sales, creating product, or anything in between and after? Big no. Do I even make any of these things that conveniently fit into my treehous? Negator. Nevermind my full time job among other responsibilities.

    Oh well. My treehouse of flags and flutters shall likely remain a sweet playdream. Here’s a glimpse into my brain.

    I bet that Jolly Roger would've been my #1 seller, too.

    Got a spare tire? Give it some yarnouflage

    No, not the kind of spare tire I got from years of /played time on WoW. I mean the kind you put on your car. The kind of spare tire you put on your car next to your Flying Spaghetti Monster decal. In Austin.

    OMJeez, I love Austin. Also, I’m totally doing this on my VW. And yes, I just made “yarnouflage” up, but I’m sticking to it.

    Austin. Home of hippies, hipsters, ... and Pastafarians (sometimes aka Vegans)

    Super thanks to Conner for the pic!
