As old as you look

Inspired by Meiyuun, I decided to take some pictures of a down (but not out) stuffed animal. His name is Woo-Woo ( which is onomatopoetic, for that is the sound a dog makes to a very young me).

Woo-Woo was given to me at 6 months old by a friend of my Mother's. So, on Jan. 25th (my birthday) Woo-Woo will turn an ancient 31 and 1/2 years old.

He's had multiple surgeries and needs many more. Unfortunately, I don't know how to sew. My sister promised to repair him but that was years ago. My mom used to be his chief surgeon.

Woo-Woo has been through a lot. When I was younger and would get frustrated I would sometimes punch him. I have since apologized and Woo-Woo forgave me. He has truly been there for me, always. He's a rock.

Woo-Woo doesn't live with me in my basement apartment. I'm afraid his fragile fur and mesh couldn't take the humidity. Instead, Woo-Woo lives in my old bedroom at my family's house, guarding it with his vigilant red eyes. In case he ever forgets I just want to say, Woo-Woo, I love you.

Check out Woo-Woo's flickr set. (Warning: some photos not for the squeamish)

My lovely fuel injection... Check it out!

So, I'm not a big fan of the Black Eyed Peas but I usually try to give them a little break. I know they've been around for a long time and never really got mainstream recognition. So now that they are doing a lot of ad work I feel like, "Well, they put in a lot of years. Maybe they deserve to make some money."

Then I read this story:

Let's get promoted!

Past performers were Maroon 5 and I believe, Good Charlotte.

Congratulations guys (and one sexy lady), you've drained your last bit o' cred.

Happy New Year (a little late). My boss and landlord, Adam, went to Guatemala for the holidays (to study Spanish). He got back to his room one night to see this guy stalking around. I really like the color of this spider (jungle camo?). The bug hunt has kind of slowed down at my place (getting too cold?).

In other news, Clunkyrobot and I are hard at work on our short animation piece. Check here or Clunky's site for updates. After the animation, a new C-Dub album (more like an EP) is on the docket.
