Spencer The Hutt / Jabba the Cat

Crafty...but not letterbox-related. Whut?!!?!?!!?

So, Rick had a little party here at the office yesterday...a 5th birthday party for Luke the Dog. Luke is Rick's rescued greyhound...I've posted a photo or two of him in the past.

So of course, Luke needs a gift for his birthday...most of the staff bought him treats or toys - he LOVED the pig's ears Marilyn gave him! I, being short on cash but long on craft supplies, decided to do a little art project: a photo collage book.

Cut for incredibly large images...Collapse )


Talked Mike into watching "Can-Can" (1960) last night, which was a surprise - he's not exactly a big movie musical fan. (I believe a young Shirley MacLaine was the draw for him.) Stupid Fox Movie channel - the DVR recording cut off the last two minutes of the film! :-(

Writer's Block: Out of fashion

If you could choose which fashions would go out of style permanently, what would you choose, and why?
Easy one - baggy pants, worn by young men low on the hips/butt:

Cher Horowitz: So okay, I don't want to be a traitor to my generation and all but I don't get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair - ew - and cover it up with a backwards cap and like, we're expected to swoon? I don't think so.
~Clueless, 1995

So this "style" has been persisting (and annoying) since at least the mid-90s...time to pull up your pants already, boyz...
