I shared my Sudden But Inevitable Pizzas (rex and stegosaur) with Reddit today. I think they liked it!
Now that I have some karma, I’ve got to keep it up, right? When I’m not posting stuff here, I might be sharing over there under the name TJohnso (very clever naming, right?).

We’re moving! Sad to say, this will take down ToniJ.net and Vix for a few days. I’ll be back, though. With more time to post, too.

Was at a friend’s house and saw a neat shape in the couch, so I turned it into a dragon head. Rarr.

Ugh, sorry about the sites being down for a week. It seems any time I go out of state for more than a day, the server stops working. New updates, including the results of the raptor costume, coming soon.

This one’s from a while back, when we were thinking of having a banner under which we could create a variety of projects (including 2D Glasses, to be exact). This is the mascot for our personal endeavors, the ninjasquid. We were between that and the robosquid. Here’s a peek at the original whiteboard brainstorm… er… squidstorm.

Here’s a page I found that had the original dragon costume from last year and a Frankenstein duo that didn’t pan out.

So, when Bert and I got married, we got an air popper and some awesome popcorn. The air popper, however, was crap. It blew out a couple of fuses and liked throwing popcorn all over the place if not watched carefully. I had completely given up on being able to eat the delicious purple and blue popcorn. That was until recently, when I happened upon a recipe for microwaving popcorn in a brown paper bag. I just tried it and I have to say, it really works! Also, if you’ve never tried blue or purple popcorn, you should go fix that. Immediately.
So yeah, recap of the awesomeness that is microwaving my own popcorn:
1/4 cup unpopped kernels
1/2 tsp oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
I put the kernels in a bowl, poured the oil over them, added the salt, and stirred them up. Dumped the mix into a brown paper bag and folded it up gently. They said to tape it, but it came untaped almost immediately once they started popping. If you’re concerned about stray popcorns, crumple the top. Since I had bathed the bits in oil, I put a couple of paper towels under the bag. Zap ‘em for about 2 minutes on high, take it out carefully (it gets rather warm in there… who’d have thought?), and eat. Oh, and depending on the size of the bag, you can scale the recipe up to at least a 1/3 cup, maybe 1/2. 1/4 cup is probably “better” for me, but I’m craving another bag already.

Yep, no more Vix pages showing up on this site because Vix is up for real and has a working RSS of its very own!
Check out the comic here.
Of course, you’ll still be subjected to my works in progress.

That one took a while. Mostly because I forgot. I await a new Words With Friends challenge!

I had a small adventure today. Bert had a speaking event to go to and I helped out by driving him. For the hour or so that he was doing his SharePoint thing, I went for a walk. My original plan was to find a shady place to write, but nowhere struck my fancy so I continued on. I ended up near the museum campus, though by this point I had used up most of the time allotted (no writing time). The beach on Northerly Island was nice, so I spent my few spare minutes sitting in the sand listening to the waves and children playing in said waves. I guess whoever was there before me had goldfish snacks. I didn’t notice until a group of seagulls came over and snatched the sandy crackers and flew off. The only one who stayed near was a young, unkempt member of the flock. She didn’t make a noise. She refused to move, despite the fact that the rest of the gulls were off pestering a nearby family. No. She was a too late for the goldfish, but was determined to be fed… by me. I hadn’t even been prepared enough to bring water, let alone a bite to eat, so there was nothing I could do but stare back. We sat staring at one another until I had to leave. Oh, and a note about the sketch – she’s not dirty, just awkwardly spotted.
