This weekend the monsters gave Mangle a bath...




Well actually, they just blocked the vid there because someone thinks it's not fair use, so the monsters, being obliging sorts, made one that can't be accused of copyright violation:




My weekend's job list:
Repair armour and store costumes, groom the monsters, mow the lawn, do taxes, draft a contract, finish leather battle skirt, make blanks for belt, collar and pauldrons, paint horns, and discuss with YoT when he's moving out.

Yes, he's moving out. My offspring is leaving home, etc etc. He's found a flat that sounds pretty good at a price he can afford, he's been offered management training at his work and he's got a girlfriend. I know I'm supposed to be all "Oh my baby!" and being a bit sad and at a loss about this, but mostly I'm bursting with pride that he's doing so well, and really looking forward to moving my craft space into his room.

We high fived over it. These days this involves me jumping.

Also, in about a month, someone might have to stage an intervention. Dr Wheel is going away on 15th July, and YoT is leaving home on the 7th. Without them around to keep me behaving like a human being, I may end up doing nothing but eat ice cream, watch crappy TV and make costumes. I could think of worse ways to go...

Being in the US I can't see the first one. The second is interesting, but I do wonder what I'm missing.

Good on your offspring moving out! I understand it can be hard, but better than they never leave.

The first vid is the same footage with the real song playing in the back ground - you're not really missing anything and in order to get the gag you'd have to understand that in our parlance, that wringer is called a mangle.

Good on the YoT!

Winter should be prime blobbing time (also I'm pretty sure the trees adn flowers that begin blooming at the end of July will pull you out without an intervention)...

Also, if I put that much work in, this costume will be done by then and *shock horror* I'll have to think of a new one..

Congrats on YOT moving out! Moving out of my parents' house was one of the greatest things that ever happened to me, and I'm sure not will be for him.

Eating ice cream and doing fun stuff every day doesn't sound too bad, either.

Is there anything wrong with doing nothing but eating ice cream, watching crappy tv and making costumes?

I might be doing life wrong...

Probably not for a little while, but I'd just do it for the entire 6 weeks Dr Wheel will be away, and he'd come back to a grey-white mass of wobbly flesh that can only say "You know nothing Jon Snow" and "Apply heat - bend - wait."

Ice cream and bad TV doesn't sound all that bad. Could be worse really!

Good to hear the YoT is moving onwards and upwards!

You don't need an intervention - your plans sound awesome :D

I admit I'm looking forward to it. I'm a little afraid of how hard it'll be to make myself go to bed, and then get up for work though...
