Giveaway


CaptioN tHiS


A couple of years ago when we were in Seattle we visited the Ye Olde Curiosity Shop downtown on Alaskan Way. It was a store of various oddities that featured shrunken heads, mummies and carcasses of all kinds. There were glass display counters and cases throughout the store that held hundreds of origami animals made from dollar bills. I was immediately mesmerized because I was somewhat of a coin collector and had a few bills of my own. The origami intrigued me so much that I bought a book and started teaching myself how to fold some of these shapes as soon as I left Seattle and returned home. I taught myself how to fold a dog and cat (which is extremely difficult); an elephant and pig; and the clothes which were real easy. I made up the pants myself in the post below. I hear that there is a way to fold pants but I haven't been able to find instructions for it yet. I did this for a little while until I got bored. However I always enjoyed leaving folded money for tips when we were out at restaurants or for the maids at hotels. So I was thinking I would do a cash giveaway folding some of these items I have mentioned. There are some pictures further down of some of these and I am also willing to try to fold something new. But be warned, anything new may take me a little practice to get right so it may take some time to send it out. The contest I've chosen is a Caption This photo. Enter once. Enter twice. Enter even thrice. And No, I don't make mice. But I will make this. And please tell your friends.
The winner will be announced on Monday or Tuesday. Whoever wins gets to pick what they want folded and I will let one of the girls draw your name out of a hat. Or bowl. Or something or another.

Uninspired sequels to The Fly included The Flu, and The Guinea Pig. Producers abandoned work on The Jeff Goldblum after two days of shooting.

Geez, and I always thought Statler and Waldorf were kidding about the perils of Muppet inbreeding.

It was then that Ted regretted burying Muffin in Steven King's Pet Cemetery.
