Monster #202 — Listen!


My neighbor is extremely concerned about tidiness. Her child is always spotless. His toys all look like they just came out of the box. Things are in their place. Always.

It sort of scares me to think about how much time and energy she spends cleaning things. And it’s kind of scary how little time I spend doing the same.

I’m all about sloth and chaos and accidentally leaving things out in the rain. And having chickens and a compost pile and going barefoot in the yard.

She must be as horrified by my lifestyle as I am by hers.

They’re kind of like those little goldfish crackers except they’re real fish. And they’re surprised.

Monster #200! — A little late, but I made it.


This isn’t really a big dome of a cake. It’s actually a half of a cake placed on its side (cut side down) — we put the other half of the cake in the freezer for the next CAKE EMERGENCY. I sleep better knowing it’s there.
