Day 60, which means I've been doing 365 for two months now. One sixth of the way through. I'm really enjoying it so far, and I'm still finding subjects for photos, so the fact that I still have 10 months to go really doesn't seem that daunting. (Ask me again in November, and we'll see how I'm feeling then). :D

In honor of this "milestone," I'm going to have a little contest. Today's photo shows some things I bought today at the fabric store and the hardware store. Yes, there's another DIY project in the making, this time with no instructions or patterns - I'm just making it up as I go.

Can you guess what I'm going to make?

The first person who comments with the correct answer will win a special prize, something I'll crochet or knit just for you! If no one guesses correctly, I'll pick the answer which made me laugh the most, and that will be the winner. (So feel free to make a legitimate guess, along with a humorous one, so you can maximize your chances). I'll reveal the answer in a few days - after I've actually built the thing.

Good luck!



ETA: If you stumbled upon this entry, but don't have a LiveJournal, you're welcome to play - just make sure to include in your comment some way that I could reach you if end up winning the prize.

I'm going to guess it's like a temporary awning or something. Maybe even a little shade for your porch plants, to keep the sun from withering them?

DIY guess
The first thing I thought of was a marshmallow gun:

You're building a small but cozy, lightweight and therefore portable, fabric-covered and therefore sunny, comfortable cage for your next boyfriend.

OMG LOL!!!!!! This is making me laugh and laugh and laugh. You've won a prize*, dear (even though someone else has already "won" by guessing correctly above; I won't say which person it was, though. Not just yet. So, I'll just have to give out TWO prizes). Because holy moly this is funny.

Also, ridiculous. Certainly none of my ex-boyfriends would deserve anything "comfortable" - are you suggesting I should give the next one the benefit of the doubt, even though all the guys that came before proved themselves highly unworthy? When it's time for me to build a boyfriend cage, it will be anything BUT comfortable. Bwahahahahahahaha! (In theory, though, the cage idea is a good one. It would solve all sorts of problems). ;)

I wish I had an icon that said, "ROFL peeing my pants," because that's the one I should be using.

*still laughing*


(AND OMG I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TO MAKE FOR YOU)! :D

It's not for the ex-boyfriends; the ex-boyfriends we keep chained up in the dungeon so that we can go down there and inflict pain on them whenever we're in a bad mood. The nice, sunny, comfortable cages should be reserved for the new boyfriends, so that they can rest up until we need* them.

*wink wink nudge nudge

You made me laugh and reminded me of a running joke my husband and I used to have when we were first together. It exactly involved the phrase "so that they can rest up until we need* them. *wink wink nudge nudge" although there was a shelf involved... ;D
