Hulk Smash-mas!

In lieu of presents this year, my best friend and I decided to celebrate the holidays by painting pottery! "Painting pottery" probably doesn't conjure up images of Ming Dynasty vases (whaddaya mean it doesn't?!), but in my opinion, what I painted was 100X more geek awesome. May I introduce... THE HULK!!!





While I'm sure superhero etiquette doesn't include storing yummy candies in the heads of superheroes and using their heads as lids, Hulk is just going to have to get good and used to it.

I mistakenly painted his lips red because I didn't realize The Hulk is ALL green, so my Hulk has the unfortunate bonus of looking a bit like a cross-dresser. So let's try this again: may I introduce... Ms. Hulktina, the alter ego of The Hulk!! Oh hush, Batman! Do we have to discuss the unfortunate rubber nipples on your suit?! And don't even get me started on you, Superman. Those in spandex houses shouldn't throw stones.

Incoming:



Holiday happiness from the lovely Patty

A holiday surprise from Natasha! She sent me the cutest little letter set. I am total putty for mini versions of things.

Christmas card from Felicia

A surprise letter from a penpal that I haven't heard from since March

From Jolly Jay in BC

Christmas mail and the most awesomesauce Squirrel labels from Julie

The above envelope also contained the weirdest thing I've recieved in the mail to date. Observe:
WHITE HAIR! In the mail! Julie is lucky that I'm not a mad scientist who has the gumption to clone her using her hair. Let's see here: A neutron walks into a bar...hip bone is connected to the whatever bone...adamantium is number imaginary on the periodic table...yup, it's been verified—I've got the mad thing down, but the scientist thing is a bit more elusive. Oh, you dodged a bullet there Julie.

This envelope from Lisa in Denmark contained a FIFTY-EIGHT PAGE LETTER. 58 PAGES! I had to read it in installments, which made it seem like there were cliffhanger endings. That was fun.

Outgoing:



BAM! POW! OOOOF! For Natasha.

Dots for Nora

Scallops for Anna


Anyways, both I and Ms. Hulktina wish you all a very Happy Holidays! Have a great holiday week everyone!
