The Mighty OJ Has Fallen [Dec. 19th, 2009|05:25 pm]

"I wish I had a table in this corner, that I could put magazines or a lamp on. Instead I have a sturdy box full of packing foam, a bunch of glue and paper, and no money. Hmm..."


When it was done, it kind of looked like a Christmas present, which wasn't what I was going for.


The cats always like something new.

In other domestic news, we no longer have a viable Mighty OJ.


The Mighty OJ

It turns out that if you squeeze between twenty-five and a hundred citrus fruits per week, for about four years, the thing will eventually wear out.

Awesome table!

I think you are the first person I've known to wear out a juicer. :)

Thanks!! I thought of you while I was doing it, because it's sort of mixed media. ;) Those violet splotches were supposed to be Japanese style water swirls (to go with the manga strips) but they didn't work, so I ended up just blending them with a sponge. Oh well!

I also thought of you when I painted these skates, because of the colors and some thick brush strokes I kept. I guess I'm unconsciously channeling you. Maybe one of these days, I'll get it right. :-)

Yay, it's actually a table now! (Decoupage work-in-progress at left is a guitar case.)

That's a heck of a lot of juice!

A lot of juice, but especially a lot of lemonade. We can go through a few gallons a day. And some mixed fruit punches as well (orange, lemon, lime, and sugar).



I've been using one of these the last few days, and making a huge mess every time I do.

Or it'll kill its wife, am I right?

Randomly

Hey, I was just on an organized tour of Egypt and our tour leader / guide Sam (Sameh) mentioned that he used to live in Dubai and work in the airport for (I think) Emirates. I suddenly wondered if you knew him.

I am happy to have enjoyed many a squeezed fruit drink before it passed.

Superb box. I like it empty or magazine-less. Oh....and lampless.


Lampless in The U.A.E. A true story about a good friend. Where did the capital letters go?
