Last night, Laurel asked how to draw Coco, so I printed off a picture from Wikipedia as a guide. She complained that it was too dark (color image, monochrome laser printer) so I encouraged her to draw her own. She did and several minutes later, had a forest of Cocos, all with speech bubbles saying "Coco", taking up three sheets of paper. Bless you, Craig McCracken.

Today she wants to make art for her best friend and the rhinestones I have aren't right for the job. She wants sequins and glitter I see a craft supply run in the near future, and if I'm doing that I'm going to pick up the appropriate sizes of beads, findings and safety pins to make beaded Indian headdress neckerchief slides. One of the den leaders *really* likes my slide and I want to write out illustrated directions since I learned how to make them from another Scouter.

(I've only found text directions online, so I'll be doing illustrated directions sometime this summer. Mine was made *mumble* years ago as a den project when my brother was a Webelos Cub Scout and it's just starting to show wear and tear as the breastplate keeps detaching from the rest of the slide. I hope some of the beaders reading this can give me a few pointers on connecting and ending pieces of wire.)

...

7leaguebootdisk posted a link to a magazine that administered Voight-Kampff tests to San Francisco mayoral candidates. The conclusions are hilarious. I almost peed myself laughing.

And while we're in that geographical area, NPR's 100 Years After the San Francisco Quake is worth a look and listen.

I got nervous watching the carriages and people dodging around the trolleys, but it was compelling even with the sound off. (I started it with the headphones sitting near me and noticed "hey music!" then muted it after a bit.)

That clip ranks right up there for me with the stabilized Zapruder film.

Most of them looked like the first one she drew next to the sample I printed:

Your daughter is lucky to have a mother that not only contributes but encourages her creative endeavors. :)
