My favourite Pokemon Shinx, hand-stitched and made with love (and felt). RE pokemon, I am still intent on catching them all.

His new owner, Baby Calvin, dropped by for a quick visit.

I heart Kitties, Pickles and Chocolate Soy Milk

If code could be run in real life this program would determine whether or not I was happy.
Don't look at me I'm not a coder I'm an artist. My friend wrote this years ago and I only just rediscovered it.

enum HowManyPickles{PKLS_NONE=0, PKLS_LOTS};

bool susie=true;
int kitties=2;
HowManyPickles pickles=PKLS_LOTS;
bool lush=true;

bool susieHappy=false;

if(susie && kitties && pickles && lush)

std::cout << "Happy" << std::endl;

Lush is the old name for Vitasoy Chocolate Soy Milk.

I'm currently reading the biography of Shakespeare by Bill Bryson. I never realised just how little we know about Shakespeare, and most of what we THINK we know turns out to be made up by various biographers romanticising his life. I'm so used to having information about the entire world at my fingertips I find it disconcerting to be told that we don't really know anything about him and we NEVER WILL.

Op Shop Dress Modifications

Until I can learn to fashion a digital SLR out of a $6 dress, the following photos will have to suffice.

I wanted super cute dresses for summer but my spending budget is about $0. Even the ugly dresses at Big W were still $40. So I hit the shops, the Op-Shops. I picked this first dress up for $6. I got a little excited and cut it all up before taking a "before" shot. I have instead created this artist's impression.

On finishing the dress I immediately went out and bought another particularly ordinary dress for just $10. I fell in love with the fabric. I couldn't leave it in the shop without regreting it for the rest of my life.

oh look why is she holding that grey brick thing? oh wait nevermind that's her camera.

keychains keychains keychains

First off, Mums are great, she didn't even bat an eyelid when I demanded a kitty cake for my birthday.

I'm never having a kitty cake ever again. I can't eat food that is smiling at me in the shape of my favourite animal. I should have learnt this lesson after almost not being able to eat one of those dinosaur-shaped donuts.

As for my overwhelming, inexplicable urge to make keychains.... I now have a small, very shiny pile of keychains I don't quite know what to do with.
