    It was my nineteenth birthday today. I took my friend to the town I grew up in, where we had lunch and walked around the sights. Then we went to my parents place for tea, cake, presents and the movie "Up". Got a personalized sketchpad, a TMNT pouch, lot's of knitted clothing and DVDs. Nothing particularly special, but boring stuff is what one sometimes remembers the most.

    Watching "All That". They just did a "Have a Nice Day with Leroy and Fuzz" segment. Forgot about those, Fuzz is cool.

    Did you just quote that from UP?

    Yes, but it's true.

    I just finished attaching a pair of puppet boobs.

    There's something just so funny about spending a few hours sculpting and sewing felt and fleece ta-tas. They turned out pretty nice, I think.

    Now there's a post to get your attention. LOL

    I tried styrofoam balls for a puppet bust, however, that didn't work, because the stiffness of the styrofoam pulled out the shape of the foam rubber torso, so instead, I went with a couple of clumps of cotton stuffing attached to the torso which... isn't great, but the results were much better.

    I cut the round shape--a circle pulled slightly at one end, or a very rounded-off teardrop--out of 1" thick foam, then carved that into a domelike shape, easing off at the long end. I sewed the skin onto that and then appliqued the whole thing to the bustless body. They're not an epic, Lucy-the-S pair, but she's definitely got something to show when wearing a low-cut shirt.

    Oh geez, I just realized she could pose for one of those "Ladies, check yourselves for lumps" posters. The hands are already done and I'm working on the arms now; hopefully they'll be attached tomorrow.

    My friend gave me clear lenses for my goggles. :) Random, yes, and I was ecstatic. :D :D :D

    Lots of things to look forward to this week: Improv group meetings, going hiking Wed., new Looney Tunes Show eps, and my friends might be visiting me Friday.

    Finally got one of the new Furbys. Exact color I wanted and everything. It's the first time I felt true happiness all year.

    Thank you! It is such a relief to have that done and crossed off my "list". Now I work on getting a job without having to worry about needing a ride to and from.
