My Work Table

The new Planet of the Apes movie was a huge hit with us!
I don't want to spoil it for anyone out there so all I'm going to say is this movie gave us a "that could happen" beginning to the series. We even bought the box set of the original movies so the kidiots could see them. It was a great day!

It occurred to me yesterday that we could dust off the flying monkey prosthetic we did with Maggs a few years ago and revamp it into a Zera costume. Here is the original prosthetic build post for anyone interested.

Just thought I'd show you what happens to my work space after I have worked on a project for a week. I try to keep things as organized as I can but it really is a disaster.

For comparison, this is how my workspace starts out. Next three projects due in two weeks! I'm going to be a busy bee.

What are you guys working on?

We're keeping busy around here lately. Today we are off to the city to watch the new Planet of the Apes movie. I LOVE this series of movies!

I blame my Uncle Tom. He dressed my brother up like this when the original movie first came out. That is plain old plasticine stuck on my brother Wade's face. I have no idea how he made it stick there I think it was just luck. Pretty cool beans just the same. It's what started my love of all things special effects and nerdy. I blame him!

Maggs found this on the top of our pink lemon aid ice-cream when she cracked it open. It makes me smile too.

I have been spending my evenings in curlers.

Maggs and I have some new earring cuff ideas after our vacation.

Will let you know how the movie was.

It Happened Again. The Monster Meatloaf Dinner Party Returns.

We've been working way too hard around here with no play in between. We have had to turn down all kinds of cool social events, camping with DOOM, good and true friend's birthday bashes, Pirates with Ira, mostly because I had commissions due. I love that there is so much creative work around for me and am gobsmacked that my little business is growing, but I have to remember to play with my friends every few weeks at least. We decided on a dinner party yesterday. Then this happened.

It's The Meatloaf!!!!
One pound of old cheddar on the inside, one pound of ground turkey (Trying to keep it healthy after the whole gallbladder failure and removal), two pounds of extra lean ground beef, one pound of thick cut bacon. I added peppers and garlic and spices and breadcrumbs and eggs to the meat before I wrapped the cheese with it.

We baked it for two hours at 325.

I used the electric knife my brother got me for Christmas to cut it. Worked like a dream. The fork is three times the size of a regular fork. A giant one for serving. The meatloaf was ginormous!

We had some retroish hors d oeuvres. Mini sausages in pineapple pepper sauce and a pinned pineapple with cheese and grapes. We also had layered jello and frog eye ambrosia salad for desert.

Anybody want a meatloaf sandwich?

Sebastian needed an after dinner nap too!
