IT'S MY BIRTHDAY, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY SOOOOOOON! (And until further notice, the blog is mine.)
This is a picture of me over Thanksgiving holiday. I had several hundred pounds of turkey and pecan pie in my belly and I am very very drunk. Friday night I will also look just as drunk as in the picture above, except I will have a lot more presents all around me and I will also have a crown on my head... because Friday is my birthday!!
Just giving you a heads up so that you can start thinking about what fabulous gift you are going to give to me. Please don't thank me, it's the least I can do. And also, just so you know, I will not be turning 31 this year. I decided this year I will turn 29 again. Not because I'm afraid of getting older are anything, but just because I enjoy being unconventional. If everything works out according to my plan, I will die precisely 12 months after my first birthday.
In other news: for the final project in my 3-D Design Studio class we are building two cars; one is made only out of found objects, and the other is primarily made of aluminum foil, chicken wire, and plastic plumbing pipes. This may seem like an easy feat to you, oh sure, but there is more to it than that. We had to pick car models made between 1965-1979 and reproduce them in three-quarter scale using only the above-mentioned materials, trying to make them look as close as possible to the originals. We chose a Mercedes and a Fiat. I think you can tell which is which. We have to finish in two weeks. Cool huh?! The headlights that are on top of the hood go inside the holes. Doors open upward.
This is the front of the Fiat which we are paper macheing the body of. Chris' ass crack kept showing so we dropped pennies down his pants. *notice the suicide doors
The Fiat is small but we are really pimping it out down to the last details: gas pedal, gear shift, seats... we happened to "find" upholstery don't you know. I'll show you pictures when we're done.
