Found this oldie but goodie in my seldom-used, webcam folder.

I’ve very excited for the second issue! It will come out on November 11.

Email your submissions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name with a short bio.
This year I’m gonna do Inktober so here is a girl and her trusty flying saucer!
While he was in kindergarten, my brother created a character called Tape Man. He was made of three pieces of scotch tape or easily drawn with three overlapping rectangles. My brother and his best friend wrote and drew stories about Tape Man’s adventures. Later, my brother would make animated Tape Man “movies” in PowerPoint.
These are a couple of stickers my brother made for me to put on my door (which is where I have put stickers for as long as I can remember (and now, I have to take them all off and scrape, sand, and paint the door)).

That’s the end of that. I really did not think this project through. Most of my clothes (aka., all of my interesting clothes) are in storage. All I’ve had is jeans, tshirts, that pair of bermuda shorts, and my Build-A-Bear uniform (had to retrieve appropriate interview clothes from storage yesterday). You have my sincerest apologies.
Next time I’ll make it a real challenge. Like each outfit has to be inspired by a great work of literature, art, music, or film. Or like no pants or something.
Trying to decide if I like these colors together. It turns out that I don’t, but I look bookish and glowy, so you get to see this photo. :)
You may remember something about my mom observing caterpillars in her garden.
Mom grew concerned for a little caterpillar apparently dangling from a milkweed leaf (probably preparing for pupation), so she brought the whole milkweed in out of the wind and carefully positioned her own pillow under the caterpillar in case it should fall.
The caterpillar did fall, and it was saved, and my mom carefully carried it back outside.
Whose mom is cuter than mine?
Can’t stop. Won’t stop.

A week ago, I googled to find a reference for this girl’s tshirt, and facebook ads have been offering it to me ever since.
The answer is yes, I am still interested, but alas, it can never be.
