YERMITS VS. ROBOTS: BATTLE OF INCOMPREHENSIBILY CUTE THINGS, OR MAYBE THINGS DRESSED AS OTHER THINGS WE DIDN’T REALLY TALK ABOUT WHAT TO CALL IT.
This is week two. The Theme: YOUR FAVOURITE DOCTOR.
I really only have one thing to say: FEZZES ARE COOL.
Here is Jenny Yermit’s AMAZINGLY AWESOME entry:
I LOVE IT. CHECK OUT THAT FREEZE RAY!
It also falls to me to provide this week’s prize: one lucky commenter (on either blog, it doesn’t matter) will win a robot fingerpuppet wearing a fez! hurrah!

This sphinx’s riddle would be slightly different than the traditional sphinx: “What walks on two legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon, and two legs in the evening?”
the answer, of course, is a robot, assuming the bot doesn’t use castors instead.

I think the princess is somewhat skeptical of the frog’s tale.
Honestly, can you blame her? It’s a talking frog.
I can’t decide if the moral of the story is “never judge a book by the cover”, or “kissing frogs leads to hallucinations”.

Introducing my newest project: “Robot Finger Puppet a Day!”
Just kidding, folks. Though it would be some kinda of crazy self-referential project- I could remake each robot pouch as a robot finger puppet. BUT HOW WOULD I MAKE A ROBOT FINGER PUPPET FINGER PUPPET? The universe might asplode.

This bot is programmed for cuddles! If you’ve been following the blog for any length of time, you might remember soft bot from all the way back on Day 7. Soft bot was much like a regular bot pouch, just… softer. However, I want to see how cuddly I could go. This bot isn’t a pouch, though it does retain the zipper mouth…..
which opens to reveal……
You might be wondering why a robot need a tongue….. well, for ice cream, of course!

I figured it was time for another theme week; so this week will be my ode to famous literary couples.
First up is Elizabeth and Darcy from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, aka one of the best books ever written. This week almost became “My Favourite Characters From Jane Austen Novels Week”, but honestly, there’s probably only three of you out there that would appreciate that.
The only reason you’re currently looking at Darcy and Lizzy, and not Anne and Captain Wentworth, is that I thought of this at my studio and didn’t have any reference for a 19th century navel officer’s uniform there (I know, I know. What kind of studio DOESN’T have that? I also don’t have a phone. It’s pretty rudimentary). Maybe another week I’ll do “Studly Men” and you’ll get to see Captain W in bot form.

Look, I could say something about how I love all you readers, and all that mushy jazz, but I’m not going to. Valentine’s day isn’t about love, it’s about chocolate. Specifically, the chocolate that’s on half-price the day after. Plus, it would seriously ruin the gruff-and-pithy-sarcastic-wit thing I’m trying to cultivate here.
Regardless, here are some things I made for you. Valentines! You can save them and print them out and give them to people you like. Or that you’re pretending to like.
Okay, these ones are for anyone. They’re pretty safe, because they are corny. Warning: they are full of puns. Bad puns. Worse than a Xanth novel, even.
These ones are for nerds. Don’t even think about giving them to regular people, because they won’t get it. I’d only recommend you download these if you got that Xanth reference earlier.
There is actually a third set of vaguely PG-rated valentines, but I got all embarrassed and didn’t post them. If you can prove to me that you’re an adult in real life and not my mom (because I’m not sure which is worse, my mother finding them funny or me having to explain a sexual innuendo to her), I’ll e-mail the link to you.
Have an awesome day, and I’ll see you back here on Tuesday!

Is it cold? Or is this bot just a snappy dresser?

This bot is so broken-hearted! I think someone told it that unicorns don’t actually exist. Honestly! Some people.
