got to have a project

Thursday, December 30th, 2004

I think I want to build one of these:

flapping bird puppet

it comes from the The Puppeteers’ Cooperative Home Page, which appears to be mostly a collection of sketches and photos of Bread and Puppet projects.

Step one – find an old metal frame backpack I can take apart…. looks like a trip to good will is in order.

For christmas this year I got the most wonderful present of a DIGITAL CAMERA! Now my blog can be full of joyous pictures! Like this one:

red hat

On Christmas I started learning how to knit a hat, and this is the hat complete minus the step where I remove the knitting needles. I’ve very proud of it. It wasn’t supposed to come out with the little point of the top, but I like it like that.

A friend of mine told me a story about calling an older friend of his and asking how his christmas went. “Well, I don’t know. All civilized people celebrate all 12 days of Christmas” he said, “it’s only the fourth day today. Anything could happen.”

…do most blog postings.

It’s been a crazy couple months (which I say as if that is somehow abnormal, which its not), and somehow posting fell off the list of things to do. Winter break seems a fine time to try and fix that. Anyway, at home I have my brother to remind me to do it. First thing he said to me when I got home for break was “you should update your blog.” So, time to get on that.
