My stupid life

No theme implied

Since the Old Reader is apparently going to be down for a couple of days, i thought it would be a good time to dump some random pictures i've been holding onto.

From a series of ads for Dungeons and Dragons in comics circa 1982. I've always liked this pic.

Art is by a young Bill Willingham, aka 'the Fables guy'.

Not the boobs! Not the boobs!

At least they're honest.  Well, not about 'synometrics'.

This requires no explanation (or, at least, you're not getting one):

The Metallic Jokers might actually be a good name for a band.  Less sure about The Special Metallic Jokers.  It could go either way.

Is It Just Me?

Or does this pancake look like an egg with the tail of a sperm hanging out of it?

it totally looks like an egg with a sperm tail.  you see it too, right?

I bet you're all judging me now.

Then I Made a Scarf

Remember a year and a half ago when i proudly showed you the single sock i knit using a sock loom? Well, here's my first needle knitting project:

garter stitch scarf in 2 colors - nylon/acrylic blend yarn and a acrylic/bamboo blend yarn

Since i didn't have enough of the brighter green to make a decent length scarf, i used what yarn i had in the house. Yep. That's yarn from the sock project. That's prolly going to cause problems what with the 2 types of material most likely shrinking and wearing at different rates. But let's not worry about that now. Let's just look at the pretty scarf i made with no obvious mess-ups.

(we are not going to bring up the whereabouts of the second sock, so just shush.)
