“Headless” The heartwarming story of a pair of sisters. One of them is young, carefree, and impulsive. The other is older, responsible, and had an encounter with Mme. Guillotine¬†during the French revolution. I guess you could say¬†neither has a good head on their shoulders! Featuring memorable musical numbers like “Another Face in the Mirror,” “Can […]

A few one-offs I’d been wanting to throw into the mix, but couldn’t really get a context for…anyway, happy filler friday… Hmm. Too much torque on the old cheese slicer :(   …or maybe this was specifically designed for “chees” but that seems unlikely. His head…his head is the same shape as the balloon. He’s […]

I promise, this is not upside-down. Do you remember when your mom got you a copy of “Highlights for Children?” Or maybe you found it in the dentist’s office, there was usually a copy there on that corner shelf. I don’t know, I’m obviously not you. About halfway through there’d be a games section, and […]

Woah, I needed those

Okay, so I know broken stuff isn’t actually funny, because, OMG broken stuff at Goodwill? Say it ain’t so! Except sometimes it is. Also, I don’t really like angels. Or happy couples. Anyway. Angel? Cloud fairy? I can’t tell. Something from column A, something from column B. Regardless, she probably shouldn’t have played that last […]

Startling Revelations

Hmm…writer in search of better title here. Bueller? Dozens injured or killed last Thursday as the Christmas Train jumped its tracks, caused in part by reality melting like a pat of butter on a camp stove. Actually, the train pretty much stayed on its tracks. Not how I remembered this particular snow globe at all. […]

Perhaps you’ve grown up thinking of snow as light and feathery. The kind of thing that drifts from the sky, breezes around a bit, then settles in such a way that heroes in a few winter-themed action movies or Christmas flicks could use it to break a particularly bad fall. This really isn’t that kind […]

Santa and his enormous sack
Santa and his enormous sack

I’m sure Santa would prefer that his unfortunate medical condition was left out of his iconography. Maybe it’s because of the 3,585 gallons of sherry he drinks every Christmas. That’s got to mess you up somehow. While we’re on the subject of malformed Santas, because that comes up every year, like clockwork, I’ve been holding […]

Post-holiday slump
Post-holiday slump

The relatives finally went at 9:00, and I’ve finally gotten the last of the sweet potatoes scraped off the kitchen counter. And now it’s December, lordy. Quick survey: Raise your hands if you feel like this. I’d meant to haul this guy out for Halloween, but somehow, this feels right. Not just dead, but totally […]

Mmm, filler Friday. We can lower our expectations together. Definitely not breed standard. My aunt raised weiner dogs, most of them had heads. Tiny, cute, endlessly yappy heads. Actually, this seems like an improvement in the breed, except for the yawning hollow cavity. You could put so many things here. A hot dog, a lit […]

Do those legs go…never mind.
Do those legs go…never mind.

I have no idea what this originally was. A big happy face? A baby duck? A symbol of industry? A small and humorous caricature of Brigham Young who carried with him a beehive as a symbol of the industry, community and selflessness of the Mormon Faith? The sun? A perfectly accurate image of God himself […]
