My friend, Shirley, took me to my first Indiana Ice game. It was awesome! The Ice is a Tier 1 junior hockey team (teens) that plays here in Indianapolis. The mascot is Big-E-Foot. He might be the coolest Sasquatch ever.
For those who aren't aware, I work another job in a print shop. I'm a graphic designer/prepress tech, but clients seem to think I'm a magician. When we have leftover materials, we use them to our advantage. Recently, I made myself some Dinosaur Jr posters. I had to work some of my "magic" on these since I could only find low res versions of these images.
This little guy was created by my coworker. He decided that I needed a T. Rex and crossbones for a flask that another coworker gave to me. It turned out beyond awesome.
This just might be the funniest book I've ever read. Back in 2003, Eric Idle (of Monty Python fame) set out on his first bus tour across America. He wrote this diary along the way. It's filled with funny stories, observations about America, the difficulties of being on the road, sweet (sometimes sad) personal memories, and the occasional song.
The other day, as I was passing through U.S. Immigration, a large uniformed man came toward me snapping on a pair of blue rubber gloves. Oh no, not the anal probe! But he walked straight past me and my sphincter relaxed a little. What kind of a job is that? And what sort of man applies for it? "We need someone to look up the butts of strangers passing through the airport."
"Do you get a uniform?"
"I'll do it." I am woken suddenly by a horribly cheerful voice. It's an automatic alarm call. There is no real person on the line to abuse back. Carefully I dial the desk.
"Can you find out who set the alarm call?" I say in my most reasonable voice. "Yes, sir."
"I want them eviscerated," I say. "You want them killed?"
"No, I want them disemboweled, their entrails unwound, their livers extruded, their testicles removed, and their remaining bits burned and chopped into Boston Harbor."
"Right away, sir." Politeness is best.
A photo book would make a fun DIY gift this holiday season.
1. You'll need Polaroid templates, scissors, a hole punch, and thread/yarn.
2. Print out blank photo templates or add your own photos to the templates with a photo editing program prior to printing. Punch holes in the printed pages at the top and bottom along the left side.
3. Cut pieces of yarn/thread to tie the pages together.
4. You now have a cute Polaroid photo book.
