Day 1 of The Great Googly Eyes Challenge saw me pilfering books from the "leave a crappy paperback, take a crappy paperback" rack at the library. Our rakish hero can’t seem to resist our radiant dove’s dewy eyes, can he? — Pookie

To celebrate a big partnership my department got off the ground with a company in China, my boss handed out “Go Global” awards to the team. The awards were, hilariously, these cheesy little faux-gemstone globe paperweights with stickers attached to indicate our site in New Jersey, and the other company’s site in China. I affixed the stickers on all of them. And later, when no one was looking, I affixed googly eyes on my award. –Schn.

I’m trying to get back into the groove of taking macro shots of plants. –Schn.

We got our box of 64 crayons on Monday. We knew we were in for a tough week when none of us could correctly identify sepia without looking at every single other brown crayon first. It turns out the color of the crayon itself is quite dark, but if you color a swatch, it’s much lighter. After looking all over, we finally discovered a teapot that is the exact color of the crayon, and an elastic-limbed squirrel that’s the exact color of the swatch. Perfect!

January 29 2010, or: Googly Vanitas

As you are now, so once was I

As I am now so you shall be

Googly googly googly eye

Prepare for death and follow me.

After a very busy weekend last week, it was too cold to go out today, and had too much of a threat of bad weather. So we had a nice day at home, full of all kinds of quilt housekeeping jobs. We laid out fabrics, planned a new pattern (that we’re making up ourselves!), cut and pressed applique pieces, and, here, marked little tiny patches. All of those things are for different quilts. We’re going to quilt the whole world!

We realized today that we have failed to celebrate the fact that we no longer have to make annual visits to a certain place we didn’t like going to. So today became the day we observed not having to ride on an airplane, and not having to stay at a dingy hotel, and not having to not get the chance to order that pizza and get that bottle of wine that we always told ourselves would make the stay so much better.

    Thanks, Denise! We had a lot of fun with them. Last year in our 365, January was the draggiest of the dog days, so we thought we’d try to grab the bull by the horns and think of something fun to do. :D

    Love the skeleton with googly eyes (and the poem). And I think deep down you miss a certain trip because although you don’t eat beef, I know that you found it delicious there :)

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You’re probably right, Sarah! :P

    And I have to say, Pookie’s Googly Vanitas is probably the most beautiful poem I’ve ever heard.

    I know that you found it delicious there :)

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! It’s true, I can’t lie. As for the poem, the one problem is now I can’t remember what the 3rd line is supposed to be!
