I'd Tap That

Screenprint is something I sort of want to experience at one point this year... My cousin has a screenprinting kit, but needs a new screen.
In the meantime, I made this for a Christmas gift idea to pass the time while waiting.

Sleep Magic

As mentioned previously, my boyfriend talks a lot in his sleep. And loves Magic the Gathering. (Yes, those two need to be closely related.)

I woke up to this about two days ago:
Tap. Sacrifice. Put three +1/+1 counters.

Yes. Sleep talking. About Magic. Because he's obsessed. Or dedicated in a way most people aren't.

A Conundrum, Me Thinks

This is a list of possible Halloween themes at one of the Cirilla's I work at...

Now, in red we have the theme "STRIPPER". This is apparently acceptable.
However, in black is "MAIDS" and "OFFICE TRAMPS", followed by the word "TASTEFUL". These are apparently unacceptable ideas.
But stripper as a theme is acceptable? I'm completely confused as to how the least clothed option is not only second on the least, but everything else must be a tasteful option...

My ideas were generic... And how I like them. "ZOMBIES", "FANTASY (ex: Vampire, mummy, fairy, etc)"... "VAMPIRES" may have been it's own option as well, I mean we do carry the fangs at work...

I worked Halloween last year, if I'm made to work Halloween this year I'm requesting mornings or off completely. I do not want to work nights, I want to party this year. I'll be 21 and I'll find something amazing to wear! Or I'll make it.

Recipe Box

My recipe box is getting incredibly full... I think I started it about 6 years ago and it contains a bit of everything...

I'm sure you noticed the last tab (Dessert) has the most notecards AND assorted rip out cards from various books.

Breakfast and most used are in front, followed by Meats, Seafood, Bird, Drinks, and Dessert...

Drinks have things like Lavender Lemonade, Witches' Brew, Butterbeer, Pumpkin Juice... Because I'm awesome. Now I realize I need a Harry Potter tab...

I get bored at work.
My employer's are cool with it, as long as no one is in the store.
But it's always saddening when you can start and complete a project or three in two shifts because damn... Work is slow.

Release the Kraken!

I love nerdy things.
Because I'm a female, I'm genetically modified to love Tetris. (See brentalfloss's Tetris... With Lyrics video on Youtube.)

Because I'm a sap, I found this online and had to make it.
It's adorable and nerdy and it's TETRIS!
It's also small, so it was a quick start-to-finish project that ended up being maybe 2 by 3 inches big. Awesome, right?

My boyfriend made a comment to my mom about having nothing hanging up in his apartment.
Since I'm in a crafty streak... That's bound to change.
Because today... I whipped up the best inside joke I have with him in one work sitting.

"Release the Kracken!"
Because nothing says "perfect boyfriend" like tentacle porn... And the best/biggest inside joke evar. <3

Tetris will be framed. The Kraken will be staying on the hoop. I'm lazy and poor like that. And a BAMF.

Joshua: My Sleep Talker

My boyfriend is a sleep talker, kicker, whatever. He has the hypnotic jerks of someone having a seizure. Sometimes this brings me amusement. Sometimes I accidentally wake him up by talking back to him, mistaking him for being awake. Sometimes he daydreams and responds out loud.

Joshua: If they try to give me a snuggle-ectomy... Kill me.
Me: Will do... o.O

I don't give a damn. I do what I want.
What are you talking about?
I've only got 12 rounds of Magic left...
Who plays 12 rounds of Magic?!
I do!...

Stoned giggling is brought on by the fact that everything is funny... Post-coitus giggling is brought on because the world. Is. Awesome.

Fuck everybody, I'm a chipmunk.

He realizes that I've been in bed finally, cuddles up really close. It's cute. There is no greeting, I just hear
Kitteh mode: Activate... Nudge. (Where he pushes his head against my cheek) Nuzzle. (Rubs his cheek against mine) ... Molest?... (Grabs a boob, while laughing.)
I don't remember my kitty's molesting me...
All kitteh's molest.
Know what's great? I'm going to wake up and make fun of you for this and you won't remember.
*laughter* Probably true...

A daydream scenario goes something like this...
Me too. Mine were about this long. *holds up thumb and pointer finger close together*
Uh... What?
Weren't you talking to me?
Not just now...
*looks at me* Didn't you say you had weird dreams last night? I swear you did...
*laughter* No, I did not. Haha. That's hilarious.

Kitteh Mode: Activate

I made a bag for the boyfriend's bead counters for Magic. I'm lame. Didn't take too long, either!

And I updated the 50 Projects 2011 List! Woo, me!

MtG Baby!

Occasionally I still make stuff.

I'm not totally satisfied with this...
In all honesty, the second row needs more spacing and the White Mana symbol looks something like a parasite instead of a sun to me.

I'll probably make another one and just say screw it afterward.

But it's purpose shall be revealed at a later date!
