Random Pictures and Jetticisms

For reasons unknown to all three of us, Jet has picked up an Outrageously bad British Accent. He's clipping his words and turning them and he's doing it without even being entirely aware of it until we start giggling.

I'll blame the Monty Python Fluxx and the fact that we played it with three different groups during our trip and whenever the "Outrageous Accent" card came up folks would enthusiastically bound into doing really, really bad accents. *laughs* But even Jet says he has no idea why he's doing it.

Last night we went to Noodles and Company and the scent of smoke lay over everything. There was a lot of take-out action going on. I ordered a "small" mushroom strogenoff as I wasn't that hungry. Jet got a "regular" buttered noodles, which is more than I can eat. For his passport, he now weighs 42 pounds and is 48 inches tall, how he gained 8 inches in a year... I guess we keep feeding him.

He ate all but the last five bites and set his fork down, "I'm full."

Then he let out an enormous burp, said the requisite, "Excuse me." And then he suddenly brightened and said, "Hey! Now I have room for more!"

And then ate the last of his noodles. *laughs and laughs*

He's been eating adult sized meals through the vacation and beyond now. He's either stocking up for another growth spurt or is just feeding the one he's on.

But pictures from Samurai Noodle:

Jet ate the entire, adult-sized, bowl of noodles with no toppings. The bowl pictured was my own bowl of noodles. *happy sigh*

The Experiment with Wallpaper Paste:
A Very Few Cards

Click if you want more detail. It was an interesting experiment and I have to do more of that... the small paintings were really interesting to do.

Three Origami Ornaments by both Jet and I:
Special paper Chrysanthemum OrigamiCherry Blossom DiceOrange Dice Origami

We got gradually more and more complicated. Started with the relatively simple chrysanthemum setup and ended up with the dice frames with a central flower "stopper". The stopper on the last, orange one, has 22 pre-folds before the first fold is set. It'll probably give you some indication of Jet's level of concentration in that he really enjoys that one. Goodness.

And last but not least:
Buddhathumper's Dye Job

Yeah, I'm dyeing again. But this time I'll get to spin it, too... Worsted Single plies (headdesks) of Merino. It's going to be good and fast. *smiles* But I'll get to remember how to set a spin again. This is the merino I'd saved for lace, but have to admit that I don't really like knitting lace anymore, what with my hands. So I'm finally using some of the pounds I have for someone that really *wants* merino single plies. They're going to give me art in return, so I'm really pleased about that.
