    1. How can they see through all that water and (b) that must be an insane amount of extra weight!

    I’ll remember these when next I don my gas-pipes, which are rather butter upon bacon, and head out for a cat-lap and a bit of mafficking.

    I can think of few things more disappointing than biting into a candy apple and discovering it’s grape flavored. Although I like the idea of doing a bunch in carmel and then a few in shocking colors.

    I’m plotting a longish skirt for the up-coming Edwardian, so this will be helpful!

    [skipping a few]

    I love the velociraptor idea. Come to think of it, I’ve not yet sent xmas cards…

    See, this is basically as creepy as normal Pokemon are to me.

    I’m in love with the corner shelf.
