Pictures of a pretty wall, a mailbox with a new and inexpensive flag, and my adorable kitties.

pics of my wall with 4 five framed animation cels and a Di Gi Charat calendar.

Frames from animation cells. The ones on the left are from Miyuki, while the one on top is Yuki from Fruits Basket. The calendar is from Di Gi Charat. I found cels stashed away in my house while cleaning up and framed them. Some of the frames are a bit too small... doh!

my mailbox with an interesting flag

So, I was looking on Froogle for a mailbox flag, since mine has been broken for so long I can't find it, and saw one that didn't even look so much like a flag, more like a red stick. Then I figured, I have red plastic knives... why not? I successfully mailed my unemployment form this week using my funky cheap mailbox flag. Yay!

Boo on the left, Charybdis on the right.

More pictures of my adorable kitties because they earned new nicknames. On the left is Pees on Plastic. He's looking at Pukes in Hall, who is looking down on the right.

Buah hahahaha!!! Pukes in Hall sounds alot like my beloved Pukes on Anything That Does Not Move Out of the Way.

And they look alike too. I may need to make icons with pictures of them with their new names.

I think the mailbox flag looks cool. How does it stay in place?

A single wood screw. It left a sharp bit sticking out of the mailbox, so I've since screwed a little rubber piece onto the point, which is not in this close-up:

Won't it strip the screw threads and just flop down pretty soon?

We'll see, but I don't think so. I forgot to mention I also put washers on either side of the mailbox. It isn't very tight, and wood screws tend to do well in plastic.

Anything interesting happen in the Board of Equalization election btw? :)

Cool. I hope fumblefingered postal workers and curious neighbors don't do a number on it.

BoE was as expected, approx. 3% -- thanks, everybody who voted for me!

You're welcome. I liked the speech on Youtube.
kennitakennita on November 9th, 2006 08:07 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I cringe when I watch it, but I guess it didn't suck quite as badly as I thought :-) .

Yay creative DIY!
ashi: toddletashi on November 9th, 2006 05:56 pm (UTC)
And fun too!

That's very creative with the flag, it gets the point across. :P

The kitties look really fluffy and cuddly. Which one is the one TJ helped you shave? I would assume it's "Pees on Plastic" since his fur is shorter.
ashi: arrrr!ashi on November 9th, 2006 05:58 pm (UTC)
Actually Pukes in Hall had matted fur, and we shaved off a good bit, but it's hard to see in the picture. She was rather unhappy about the whole thing, so I got the rest here and there with scissors when I caught her not paying attention.

Pees on Plastic didn't really need shaving, but he was curious what was going on. He reacted like we were petting him and was quite happy, till he'd had enough and ran away, so he actually got shaved more. :)
