Little free library

It's my plan for a Little Free Library.

Do you know these things and do you have one in your neighborhood?
There's a couple here that I check on occasion.

Mainly one in front of a Victorian house painted a dark dark chocolately color. Their library's out front.  Most of the time, the books are of no interest to me and tend to sit there- but every once in awhile....

It got me thinking about what my library might look like. Apparently it'd have a pumpkin light, mushroom handles, and a little seperate door-compartment for something small and surprising. Maybe a teeny theater with a scene illustrated from a book.

I think I'd put a bench by it too, and plant some kind of bush nearby that'd smell nice.

I have lots of ideas, but they're fairly difficult to execute, y'know.
Probably because it's not their time.  That's probably super cryptic... Well.

In order to make my library,
ideally... I'd not be renting and living across the street from a high school.
That sorta thing.

But I thought I'd share it anyway 'cause it's Halloween-y.

Oso pain in th' butt

He's the sweetest...and has been keeping me the best company this weekend after being sick on the darned couch.  I had a Robin Williams marathon and realized I can actually cook for myself fairly decently in this state, given that I'm not nauseous.    It's all about those small victories, man.

Anyway, I am feeling much better and Oso can nap where he pleases.

Most of the time....

sphinx boat

Sphinx boat will take you anywhere you want to go. Simply answer a riddle before boarding, then inform him about your desired destination- also, in riddle form.  Hopefully she'll understand. Otherwise he'll turn around and eat you. Or you'll end up, who knows where.

pizza cake delivery!

Johnathan turned 31 and requested I make him a pizza cake. I was a little daunted, but after a late night- it became a delicious reality. 

What does an imaginary turkey have to do with a pizza cake?
Ask Jeff.

couscous spirit

One of the ladies at work showed me a picture of a cake today that resembled someone's innards, with the caption "Do you have the guts to eat this cake?" 
No, I donut.

But I had the guts to eat couscous for dinner.
All because the couscous spirit came to me, and gave me the strength.

Thanks, couscous spirit.

a fortune teller & tight rope walker

candy beast

beastie went to the store with his mom on an errand- and when no one was looking, stole a piece of gum. he couldn't wait to get home. the whole car ride home was torturous!

when they pulled into the driveway and his mom parked the car, he ran into his room to devour the gum. his mom couldn't understand why he was so excited. beastie never acted like this before!

mama beast left the groceries in the car and peeped into little beastie's room. she saw him devouring the gum.
she'd caught him red handed!

mama drove him straight back to the store to teach beast a lesson.

now beast pillages the couch cushions for stray nickles so he can properly pay for his treats.
that's how he spends his summer days. honestly.

he also reads.
someday he hopes to become a pastry chef.
or- drive an ice cream truck.

true story!
