    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.

    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.

    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.

    I was told at work that I should go for the Case Manager position. I thought about it and if I lived alone I would, but my family life is so unstable I can't really go back to the M-F 9-5er type job anymore.

    However, I just got our air ducts cleaned and sanitized. The dryer duct alone produced enough dust to fill half a Walmart bag. I can already tell the difference and I have decided this is a great charity idea. They do gift cards so once or twice a year I may buy one and have it go to a needy person who suffers like I have from poor air quality. :D

    HOORAH Charlie!! Now just don't forget to buckle your... *VVRROOOOOMMMhairblowninbackdraftfromfastsportscar*
    ...belt... good job kiddo!

    A decent share of smiles the past two days:

    A friend sent me some Halloween things, which cheered my room.
    I was able to find another copy of my absolute favorite movie and wallowed in it a while.
    Wrote like a bat outta heck for two days straight. (Naturally, today I am braindead...)
    And today, this -- and I'm not even a Beach Boys fan but this is fun:

    Boneless, skinless chicken thighs never cease to bring a smile to my face.

    They've got to be the greatest discovery since fire.
