I made my mohawk*

*OK, I just shaved the sides down and trimmed the top bits as it was looking very Annie Lenox.

It probably shouldn't count because I'm not giving away my desk, but with a drill and a couple wooden pegs I turned my keyboard tray into what the kids are calling a "slant board".

I taught myself how to knit a few years ago, but I cannot hold the needles right, either.

I learned to crochet when I was a tiny little babby, though. I have a hilarious hat I made once because I was mad at my mom for saying I couldn't make things without a pattern. So I made a hat and vest for myself and was like SUCK IT MOM.

The hilarious part, though, is that the hat is ridiculously tiny, but it did fit me at the time. (And it's acrylic, so it's not shrunk. My head was really that tiny.) Next time I find that hat, I will post a picture of it with a quarter for scale.

Oh, and I am failing the fuck out of my self-imposed make something every day contest. Saturday, I started to KNIT a washcloth as a sort of cheat, but I didn't finish it; and yesterday I made a bushel of unpeeled chiles into a bunch of small bags of peeled chiles, and then I was really tired and my fingers were pruned, so I pretended that would count.

IT IS OKAY BECAUSE MR. DRUSUS SAID THAT CHEATING IS ALLOWED.

BAMP!

I actually didn't really make anything for the last couple of days, but I a) finished that knit washcloth, b) made a little squiggly like cord holder out of sugru mostly just to check whether it is prematurely expired, and c) assembled a new store boughten office chair because my bucket-and-ball chair stopped working.

So, you know, I am still winning, even though erimir is prettier.

I made a Non-Player Character to use in an upcoming campaign. I don't want to give away too much, since Crumb will be playing, but his name is The Shandy and he is 65 years old, a 24th-level monk, is crazy, smelly, and doesn't wear clothes, and always yells instead of speaking.

A 24th-level monk, even one that doesn't carry any weapons other than his body, is a force of fucking nature, with a base move rate of 110ft.

I mades it.

I made toast :holytoast: (and eated it).

Demi - I thought crocheting was harder than knitting - and who cares how you hold your needles, so long as you get the job done. My favorite quote from The Yarn Harlot: There are no knitting police. Do what you want.

I put the first upright shelf support into the wall in the upstairs hallway today. By the end of the week we should have new 75 linear feet of bookshelves upstairs, and we can unpack all our books.

I miscalculated the board feet of plywood for my office floor, so I'm going to go buy another sheet and have it cut tomorrow.

That too looks like it's close to being finished. And so far, only one badly bent nail out of dozens.

Doesn't look like I can move into my office until the last week of October, sadly enough.

I have an exciting new Make Something This Week project that doesn't involve ruining your precious manicure (or possibly pedicure, I don't want to know how you peel chiles). It involves the enclosed and a top secret NOBODY ELSE BETTER LOOK instructions on what I want.

WHERE DID YOU FIND THAT PICTURE? I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THAT BEFORE AND I AM EXTREMELY AGITATED RIGHT NOW.

But yeah, I figure that this would probably be a good place to start with that project.

Law Re: The Make Something Every Week Contest

Because you're a girl and don't know how the internet works, I'll explain it for you.

I found the original article at Gizmodo. That article also has links to two other articles, the second which has olde tyme pictures. I remember that you have a fixation on M model phones. And M model keyboards too. You apparently really like the letter M. Maturin isn't an accident of simple brain chemicals or wanting to have a keen country lawyer in your pocket I now suspect.

I want to know more about the crayon fire starters. Do they smell weird when they burn? Do they burn or melt in pretty colors?

Default Re: The Make Something Every Week Contest

I needed wax and I had bought a metric fuckton of dollar store crayons for some gift bags like 5 years ago. Dollar store crayons don't color on paper, so I replaced them for coloring purposes with Crayolas, and the cheap ones were sitting in a coffee can being useless.

Melting lots of different crayons together makes a sorta muddy army green color. But these were for camping, so utility was more important than attractiveness. In the fire the sawdust and pinecone burning smells overpower the sad cheap crayons and there is no melting, there is flames.

Now, if you wanted to make them for your fireplace or for gifts, you could get all fancy and use new paraffin or melt down colored votives...but the sawdust kinda hides the wax. You could food color the sawdust maybe. Adding salt or borax makes pretty colored flames I have been told, and you can add cinnamon oil.

Instead of pinecones you can also fill cupcake papers (paper not foil!) or coffee filters with sawdust, then pour the wax over it.
