So I got my Reddit gifts match and this is what she said in her info:
“I recently had a good cry about how much I miss the Tenth Doctor. It isn’t that I don’t like the Eleventh, it isnt a bloody contest! I just really, really miss the Tenth. I also dig K9. I have been checking out some old Who of late and really enjoying it. Im going to watch Seeds of Doom soon upon recommendation of my local comic store guy.
Things I already have: plush tardis, tshirt w The Angels Have the Phonebox on it.
Things that would be killer to have: tardis towel, action figure or some likeness of the Tenth so I wont feel so damn sad. A ride on the actual tardis, if you just so happen to be The Doctor.
Thank you so much”
I couldn’t get the doctor on the line for a Tardis ride so I painted this for her instead.
Every year For the past few I have attended Sakura Matsuri at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. Sakura Matsuri is the celebration of the cherry blossoms. The BBG throws a huge festival which includes dances, karate demonstrations, comedy routines, fashion shows, etc… You can also get some delicious japanese food there for a price. I bought a bento box that was jam packed with yum!
Thankfully this year the trees were in full bloom. With the cold weather NY has been having I was worried that the trees might not be ready like last year. Nothing sadder than a party where the guests of honor show up naked.
It is also great time for photographers as many people come in costume. I especially love that it is so Cosplay friendly. They have a great Cosplay fashion show in the late afternoon on Sundays. Here are a couple of the shots I took. (That’s me in the 1st one)
So I put a bid on a co-op that was accepted and now I am waiting to hear back from the co-op board to see if they will let me live in the building. THEY LORD OVER ME LIKE THE GODS THEY ARE! (or at least that is how they think I should see them) In preparation for the possibility of a move I created “HomeHacking” a Tumblr for tips and hacks about making your home more awesome. I used my cat Peanut as the spokespurrson because the internet loves cats.
I greatly underestimated how much the internet loves cats
Before this morning about very few people had noticed the site and that was OK by me. I never expected it to be hugely popular. It was just a place for me to keep some ideas for myself. Almost like Pinterest. This morning I awoke to find 64 new likes and a handful of new followers.
I knew then what I had to do….
Professor Peanut now has her own Facebook fan page and twitter and I may design a Pinterest for her. When I do something I go ALL the way.
Last week I attended the Game of Thrones Exhibit in NYC. Luckily I was there around 2:30 in the afternoon on a Tuesday so the line was only 2 hours long. Bleh… I realized as I entered that I forgot the memory card for my camera so all the following pictures had to be taken with my iPad. Sorry for the crappy quality.
They had a Blackwater Bay Experience game.
I loved the costumes:
And some cool props!
Worth the long wait!
I got some blue nail polish that matches my hoodie. I had too much fun painting my nails.
Drawn in pen then painted with watercolor.
“The Empress sits on a throne wearing a starry crown, holding a scepter in one hand. The Scepter is representative of her power over life, her crown has twelve stars representing her dominance over the year, and her throne is in the midst of a field of grain, representative of her dominion over growing things.” Wikipedia
