#388 – Faux Birthday

with 9 comments

Yes, I got fireworks. D supposedly planned it all out, she said. I still don’t know if I believe her…and actually, correct me if I’m wrong oh-family-of-mine, but I think I actually used to call fireworks “boom-boom sky” instead of “bang-bang sky.” Gah. I’m a failure with words. My memory is so going…

Some many days ago, I held a little contest asking readers to name my brand new laptop. Trina destroyed the competition, offering up a name that sort of held the key to my heart: Macaroni. Here is her prize:

That’s Trina in the middle. Come on, use your imagination. You know what I’m also adding to my list of Impossible Things to Draw now…nudibranches. My attempt at such a critter is that dancing taco in the bottom right corner. Ugh. Apologizes to sea slugs everywhere!

Snapple Real Facts #18: A jellyfish is 95% water.

And now, we proudly present
Songs perverse and songs of lament
A couple of hymns of confession
And songs that recognize our sick obsessions
Sing along, I’m on the ugly organ again
Sing along, I’m on the ugly organ, so let’s begin

  1. Wonderful 🙂 That kid really was…cute…and I know you would admit to that. It was nice to see the fireworks ::sigh:: I miss vacation, can we go back???

    And yeah, it was boom boom sky if my memory serves me right.

    I love the underwater scene! Looks great! 🙂 A fine prize indeed!

  2. Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

    I love it! Thank you! And thanks for identifying that “sea taco”. I thought maybe it was some kind of amoeba.

    I’m going to print it out and hang it in my art gallery (aka the refrigerator.)

  3. Boom, boom sky!!! And yes, I arranged for the fireworks. What a celebration we had!

  4. Oooh – lots of underwater sea animals! I like it. The fishies all smile nice before they devour you…
    Fireworks were fun. Then ten minutes later the rain poured down, down, down. And hey Biff – you didn’t mention your extreme reluctance to have a faux party. A party is a party!

  5. Duuuude, that crabbie crab-dude is going to pinch your foot.

  6. Tara: Yes, I can openly admit that that hobbity boy was…cute. But only cause he looked like a hobbit. Cause, as you know, even the smallest person can change the course of the future.

    Trina: Yay, now everyone will see it when they go for a midnight snack! 😀

    D: Yes, you’re quite the party planner. 😉

    Bitsy: Mmm, I hate being the center of attention (despite this website and all), but the faux party and true dat gifts were nice. I bought Pan’s Labyrinth with some of my Target gift card, and I think I’ll be using the Best Buy ones for a new DS game, perhaps.

    TK: That’s how crabs say hello though. 😛

  7. Very nice. I just wish we would see some octopus that big. That Nudi wasn’t that bad I could tell what it was.
    The only thing is that proper alignment of a (good) diver (which Trina is) is horizontal, not vertical.

  8. RAD Diver: Thanks for the info! I’d totally drown if I ever attempted to dive with the fishies.

  9. Well, RAD (aka my husband dearest) I think it looks like I’m doing a slow and safe ascent to 15′ in order to do my safety stop before exiting the water.
