More “People” buttons in the making! Yes, that’s right, folks – I have hired my own child for unpaid slave labour to help market this sitcom production. One of the above photos will be come Kyla’s HPB “People” button at the Flash site – the rest will be used on her brand new blog, which she has diced to call The Blog of Turkey.

Seriously, she chose this herself. The Turkey.

Check it out!

In my quest to get my idea out there and garner interest in the project, I’ve been working on building a Flash website…. which means I have to learn to use Photoshop. One thing leads to another apparently – so I’m editing “People” buttons. This is one.

Ky has persuaded me to allow her a pet hamster… I was against this; rodent cages stink. They do.

Trust me, I know this from experience.

Still, Kyla promises to clean Scrappy’s cage on a regular basis – how regular remains to be seen, but I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt.

For now.

Then I may make shishkebabs.

Happy 9th Birthday, Turkey!

Great White Birthday Cake
Great White Birthday Cake

Today was Ky’s 9th birthday and of course, the obligatory sleepover/birthday party was the celebration of all celebrations. The “Jaws” themed birthday cake and “Bite Me” cupcakes were a gift from a baker friend, to commemorate Kyla’s love of all things Great White Shark.

 

 

 

The “Bite Me” cupcakes were the big hit of the party – not one single cupcake remains for Momma, dammit!

There is, however, enough Great White Shark left over to get me through the next month.

Ky got a new pet – Steve is a Samurai, or Chinese Fighting Fish. Apparently, he will kill and consume any other fish in his vicinity, so we can’t get him a companion. Putting a mirror next to his bowl pisses him off noticeably, so I think he’s definitely a Loner kinda guy.

I’m not sure why Kyla decided to name him “Tremor Steve”, but I think it’s a pretty cool moniker, myself.
