I love humanity

I’m loathe to admit it, but this movie made me cry. Maybe it’s because I’d just been listening to a radio documentary on the My Lai massacre… humans are so full of contradictions, and the world would be a better place if we all got together more often to do silly dances.

Illustration Friday – Punchline

This beetle’s family are worried that he may not make it to the emergency department in time – and let’s face it, they have valid cause for concern, even though the Ambosnail is trying his level best. But will his best be good enough? Tune in next week for another episode of Inverterbrate Casualty…

I did this for my 7 year old, because she made up the joke – not a bad punchline, huh?

My Brilliant Brother

I just want the world to know that I swim in the same gene pool as Matt Davis, who is an amazing jazz musician.  Here’s one of his concerts at the opening of the Christchurch Art Gallery.  He’s the disembodied saxophone up on the balcony, with all the stunning solos.  He thinks he sucks in this concert, and will probably kill me for posting this, but oh well.  I’m going to anyway, cos I’m a proud sister.

I can hold it in my hand…

Because it’s an actual book. With pages. And a cover. Wheeee! The advance copies of Mending Lucille and Shawn Sheep arrived on the same day. I can’t quite bring myself to look through them because I know I’ll just spot all the flaws, but it’s really nice to finally see the fruits of all those all-nighters.
