Costuming

I rarely put much thought in to Halloween costumes, but it appears this year it's all the rage, so I've fallen in to the spirit. My creative costume skills are very rusty, though, but I've come up with two possibilities.

PROS:
-I've got the raptor-arm down
-I get to stomp around and make dino noises
-comfortable attire, no worries about hair because of hat

CONS:
-requires store bought things--expensive!
-have no good ideas for tail materials
-I will probably find the hat/mask annoying and take it off, leaving me as some kind of unidentified green individual with a tail (or possibly a scarf hanging out of my pants <--best idea for a tail yet)

When I voiced my worries about the Dino-costume-execution, the following was suggested to me

PROS:
-It's very ME
-Possibility of pajama wearing (under coat or bathrobe)
-easy to put together

CONS:
-will have to purchase coat or bathrobe
-will have to purchase stuffed cats
-can not wear my hair in a ponytail <--a surprisingly big deal!

I might go to some used stores/costume shops this weekend. Who knows. I could go my usual route of finding ways to wear my normal clothes... "I'm Jschro from five minutes ago. The Jschro you're looking for is in the bathroom..." etc. etc. Suggestions welcome.

There's a fly in my office!

At first I thought it was a bee, and I was really freaked out. But no, it's just a buzzing black fly, going in circles around my office.

I can't even successfully shoo it out! It's just repetitively circling! Ideally, I would smash it in the least humane way possible.

But with my luck, we know what the end result of me running around with an ax would be.

I suppose I'll have to wait for it to get stuck in the window and either die of starvation or get eaten by the spider that has been lurking there.

Ick.

Ah, School.

A friend complaining about a lab something something inspired this one. She's studying soldier beetles. That's right... SOLDIER BEETLES.

That's what they are, right? Haha, school. Haha, ecology.

And here's something from yesterday.

His name is Meeko.

Nyan?

THIS HAS BEEN IN MY HEAD.

Which, for those of you who don't know, is my rendition of this.

Enjoy.

Apple Picking

So I am going to go apple picking in the near future, and am thinking of things to do with what is sure to be a plentiful haul of apples. I mean, there's the obvious...

But I am totally willing to hear unconventional suggestions.

Small houses for imaginary rodents? Or hey, I could go castaway style and make a friend out of one...

This is my friend... uh... Golden Delicious.

Obsessed with Froyo

Yes. I like frozen yogurt. A lot. Not when it's original blend and like... good for you. But the chocolate/peanut butter/cake batter flavored kind with super toppings. O.M.G. So here.

Get it?  http://www.pinkberry.com/

Or

Like this one http://www.berryline.com/

And then... uh...


I should get money for the advertising... or free frozen yogurt.

Mmm...

Our Server is Down

When our server is down, it doesn't leave me with many options. I have plenty to do right now, but not the capacity to do any of it. So... MSPAINT! In the spirit of the system being down, I created this

I used a picture from the web as a model... but I'm pretty proud of him. For those of you who don't know homestar runner, below is the reference.

We installed this light switch so the Cheat could turn the light ON and OFF. Not to throw light switch raves!

Searching the Archives

Some pictures I have made for one reason or another, and they haven't been for my blog. Since I've been somewhat remiss about posting, I figured I could find one of these and put it up for you. So here's one I don't think made it online:

Apparently it's a boar pretty geared up for a Seder. Yeah.
Here's another random one. I made it for someone in particular who was feeling down, but really it could be applicable to anyone inserted in the bubble.

I often am thinking of Ian McKellen. Finally, has someone wronged or upset you? There's no better way to inform them of this than to send them a picture. With pandas.

If you make panda sad he'll eat you.... and southpark will sue you for copyright violation.

I don't listen to rap

I know you all have been lonely without me. Things have been busy around the office, and shockingly, I haven't had time to sit and doodle. Sort of. I've also been having some creative blocks lately. I mean, I don't know where the following came from.

But it did lead to this

Here are some creepy monkeys.


I didn't draw these. Don't they look like skeletons?
