A star with instructions by Dr. Google plus a penitent cat and yet another remodeling anecdote.

Shiny Star Posted on Feb 25, 11:02 pm

Kirigami Star Posted on Feb 24, 10:02 pm

I decided I don't follow instructions well, so I threw them out completely.

A Garden Thing Posted on Feb 13, 6:02 pm

Even Stars Die Posted on Feb 5, 1:02 am
One star dies (and yes, this is why we can't have nice things), another is born. Also, I tracked down a music video image because I'm just that dedicated to bad jokes.

The Donut Star (Like the Death Star, Only Crumbier) Posted on Feb 4, 1:02 am
