Big colorful seashells, and the picture wall goes up.

I got some shells this weekend, and no, I didn't go to the beach, that's still a ways off. They're beautiful though so I took some pictures to share.

I also went down to the book store and got some cork board and pushpins so I could start putting up my wall of pictures.

Aww, would you look at all those faces!

This is what the wall looks like from afar, there'll be loads more pictures up when I'm done though. Also notice my newly installed wind chimes on the door frame.

My next post will have some drawings, I promise.

Today, I went shopping...

... again. I got some hand made mats and bowls and stuff for the apartment, and a pair of nice warm lamps that offset the sterile white of the fluorescent bulbs. I felt so good about the way things looked I took some piccies... and of course a video.

Happy Birthday daddy, Happy Birthday Shof! Miss you guys so much, can't wait till we're all together again on the beach, eating suya!

My Articulated Sculpted Miniatures

And I've got plants now! Although I mostly just took pictures of my toys.

I suppose we should get this one out of the way first, it's not a toy, rather it's a life size replica I sculpted of myself from a local wax called mooshoo. It looks eerily lifelike in the right light.

'Kay so that's obviously me fibbing. What happened was I struck a pose, and the lady across the street opened her window and stared into my open window and saw me standing like that. Naturally I didn't want her to think I was an idiot so I figured the best thing to do was just not move for a while. I stood there for five minutes before she went back into her apartment, staring the whole time.

Look, I've got plants now! I can pretend my action figures are traipsing through a jungle! My favorite one is the big fellow by the window (Brock) there's a close up below.

That's not Brock, that's Tom and Jerry.

Thing Ring, DO YOUR THING!

That's Brock in the middle, and Dean and Hank above and below him respectively. It's nice to have living things in the space. I expect them to be withered and brown within a week.

That's Rusty, and the cheapest bottle of red wine I could find at the local super. It's almost empty now. I got some dried mango strips that go really well with the wine. I figure it's better than candy and soda... maybe.

Asterix and Obelix guard the Man of Steel.

Almost too much awesomeness to be contained in one image.

Crom demanded I leave the best for last.
