CRAFT CORNER DEATH MATCH!!
This is week fourteen! This week is a bit different, we have TWO CHALLENGES. TWO. THAT IS TWICE AS MUCH AWESOMENESS FOR YOU!
This is the first challenge! For this theme, there are four competitors: me (duh), Yermits, Sarah Apple, and a new contender, The Harpy!
The Theme: Self-portrait As Vermin.
This is me! Those are my glasses, that is my green cardigan that will never stay closed (but has pockets and is so comfy I wear it all the time anyways), those are my sassy cowboy boots that I scored at the thrift store for $4 (now holey and only to be worn in dry weather to ensure dry feet). And of course, there is a leetle robot.
Oh, and a coffee. You might remember that I like coffee? I ALSO SPILL IT EVERY DAMN DAY. So there is the spill.
And why a racoon you might ask? Because they have chubby hips and clever hands. And if the bags under my eyes get any bigger, they might start to look like a bandit mask.
To see all the entries go to Craft Corner Death Match!

You probably don’t have anything to worry about unless you’re a computer. Then yes, this bot is totally looking at your underwear.

Normally, I try to stay away from doing bots based on real people, but my brother’s been pulling for a David Suzuki bot for a long while now.
Though I don’t think this particular image is what he had in mind.
I’m tricky like that.
Don’t get it? David Suzuki is a Canadian Super Genius of Science and Being Awesome. Famously, he appeared clad only in a leaf on the cover of TV Guide in 1999; at which time he was 64. I’m not really sure what that has to do with saving the planet, though. But hey, if he ever decides to take up a superhero costume, we know spandex is a good option.

ELVIS BOT HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!
Do you think Elvis impersonators would be as popular if it weren’t for that infamous giant belt and cape ensemble?

I am deathly allergic to cats. I may become an old shut-in (thanks a lot, INTERNET CONNECTION), but I’ll never be a crazy cat lady. Crazy dog owning lady, maybe. Crazy lady whose house is a maze of haphazardly stacked paperback books, almost certainly.
Although if certain trends continue, I’ll be the crazy old lady whose house is a warren of carefully stacked and arranged robot pouches. I realized I was *way* too invested in the project after I finished the 11th tiny kitty. BECAUSE 10 WOULD BE TOO FEW.

Generally I celebrate the new year by falling asleep on the couch around 9:30. This is embarrassing, and not only because I’m under thirty, but also because I don’t have any kids or any real reason to not be out partying (besides the fact that parties are loud and rarely have large amounts of Earl Grey tea for me to drink). However, it does mean that I’m never hung over or feeling poorly on New Year’s Day, which generally ensures a good start to the year.
The two main things about New Year’s are that on New Year’s Eve, you can tell people you see every day that you’ll “see them in the New Year! WHICH IS TOMORROW, HURR HURR!”, and that it generally takes me until March to remember to write the right year on cheques, invoices, etc etc.
I never, ever, make resolutions because I always forget what they are about two seconds after I’ve made them.
It’s sometimes comforting to know that I don’t have to worry about turning into an old person, because I’m already one at heart.
ps- sorry about the posting confusion, folks. When I hit publish, I had set the date as January 1st, 2008. See above re: not knowing the year.
Limited in edition to 5 bots – available right here.

I’ve planned this bot from the start, and I’ve also had numerous requests for it. Most requests mentioned different things (suspenders, ugly shoes, overbite, buck teeth, clothing referencing video games, short pants…) but there were two things that EVERY SINGLE PERSON WANTED IN A NERD.
BIG BLACK GLASSES AND A POCKET PROTECTOR.
never ever say that I’ve failed you.
Limited in edition to 15 bots – right here.
