Day 350 – FABRIC CHALLENGE

CRAFT CORNER DEATH MATCH!!

THE THEME: FABRIC CHALLENGE

I think I gasped out loud when I saw this fabric at the thrift store. I mean, sure it’s fun fur. But it’s SHERBET fun fur. STRIPED, SHERBET-COLOURED FUN FUR.

I mean, what could possibly possess someone to design this, let alone produce it?

oh, right. Drugs.

Anyway, I purchased it knowing it would be the most fabulous fabric challenge ever. Also, I’m mean.

The woman at the thrift store counter asked me what I was going to do with it, her tone of voice no different than if I’d been purchasing a bag of dead cockroaches. “I’m sending it to some friends!” I said brightly.

She replied, “Don’t like them much, do you?”

But I knew they’d be up for the challenge.

UNICORN!

For this theme, there are three other competitors:
The Harpy!
Yermits!
Sarah Apple!

DAY 334 – Yermits vs Robots; Living in Canada

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 nine! The Theme: LIVING IN CANADA.

Did you know? I totally live in Canada. It’s like living in the United States, except that we have universal health care and we’re polite. ZING. Or like living in Britain, except their national hero is Dactor Who, and ours is David Suzuki.

Oh yeah, AND WE RIDE POLAR BEARS TO WORK. NO REALLY. IT’S TRUE.

Mine is named Horatio.

And no, we don’t all live in igloos. That’s just silly.

Here is Jenny Yermit’s totally Canadian entry:

Canadian to the core. Donuts! Hat! Mitts! Boots and shorts all year!

NEXT WEEK’S THEME: TBA

Day 328 – Yermits vs. Robots: Survivor!

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 three. The Theme: SURVIVOR.

Now, I haven’t watched survivor since the very first season, so this is all I remember… tiny bathing suits and rat-eating. I’m assuming not much has changed.

Here is Jenny Yermit’s hilarious entry:

Look at those details! The blood and injuries, the grizzled hair, the beard… and she even set the scene with that log and the grass. Setting the bar pretty high there, Jenny!

NEXT WEEK’S THEME: “BATTLE READY”

I wonder if he runs on curry or burritos?

Day 324 – Praying Mantis Bot

Those of you who follow my twitter might have noticed that I asked for some robot ideas this week.

And then I didn’t use any of them. *

Instead, I was checking out the other Robot-a-Day’s blog, and upon seeing his golden mantis, realized that I am quite remiss in my terrifying insect quota.

And dude, these things are totally terrifying. Remember when Xander almost got sexed up and eaten by an inexplicably giant english-speaking one? That could teach science, even though the whole premise of the episode was sorely lacking in any scientific plausibilty at all? I waited all season for that stupid egg at the end of the episode to hatch.


*ha, sorry! Maybe next week.

Day 322 – Lobster Bot

I don’t have much to say about this one, except LOOK AT THIS TERRIFYLY GIANORMOUS LOBSTER. Now you never need to sleep again.

Day 312 – Stingray Bot



Sometimes, the bots are tricky to photograph. Here’s another view:


and, just for completeness sake, here is the underbelly/mouth:


So, I was cruising around the National Geographic website looking at dinosaurs, when I found myself looking at GIANT FISHES. GIANT FISHES gets capitalized because those things are freaky weird. The giant catfish in particular has ensured that I will never, ever set a toe into water that I can’t see through. I don’t care if it supposedly doesn’t eat people, IT TOTALLY COULD ANYTIME IT DECIDED TO.

Anyway, onto stingrays. Look, this one is so big you could ride it like a magic carpet across the waves. Also I touched a stingray once and it was soft like velvet.

Day 311 – T-Rex bot

Besides the fact that it could totally eat you, I think it would be kinda fun to ride a T-rex. More fun than a stegosaurus, that’s for sure.

Day 309 – Warthog Bot

I was at a loss as to what to write about warthogs, so I asked my partner what to write. He summed it up nicely:

“Don’t mess with warthogs. They’ll fuck you up”

So. Warthogs. Don’t mess with them.

Day 307 – Pigeon Bot

Look, I know most people think pigeons are the rats of the avian world, but I actually think they are kinda cute. Sure, they poop everywhere, BUT SO DO BABIES.

Pigeons do that cute head bobbing thing, and they coo, and in cities they are usually fat and lazy. Just like people!

Anyways, a few of my favourite things about pigeons:

1. They have the ugliest babies ever. Seriously. Have you seen pigeon babies? They are hands down, the ugliest babies ever. I’m not even lying! It is amazing that anything that ugly can survive being helpless.

2. Pgeons have been trained to tell the difference between cubist and impressionist paintings. Seriously, what? I can barely tell the difference. Way to go, pigeons!

2. Did you know that there is a Canadian Pigeon Fanciers Association? THEY EVEN HAVE A CALENDAR! There is a club for eveything, ever.
