Tomorrow Lover fo’ Life leaves for an almost 3 week-long business trip to Brazil. Unfortunately, instead of poppin’ bottles with a bunch of Brazilian babes, he’ll be cooped up in an office doing computery things. Friday, I close on the NEW Angry Baby Manor.
We packed and worked all weekend, and now…I’m in full hoss work mode. L4L’s no slouch either: since Friday, I’ve also been in “squeeze every last bit of help from L4L before he leaves the country” mode, and let me just tell you, he’s been flawless. Like a strong-backed mule, the beloved father of my child has champed through.
What does all my, L4L slave-driving, cleaning, sorting, purging and packing have to do with you, my darling readers? Absolutely nothing. Well, maybe just a leetle bit.
Imma be real with y’all. I don’t know how much I’ll be posting today and tomorrow, as time spent fooling around on the internets is directly in conflict with the 1001 curious collectibles I still need to pack up.
The upshot? Once Tuesday has come and gone, I’ll be lonely as hail and will likely update this clap-trap hobo parlor of a website a billion times a day.
In the meantime, I’m going to have to revert back to my alter-ego: “Toily, the productive.”
Don’t worry, I’ll be back at some point today, see I’m naturally a ne’er do well and slugabed. Eventually, all the HARD WORK and responsible actions will be too much for my feeble work ethic and I’ll be required to take a nonsense break.
In the meantime, I’m back to bubble wrapping artwork, oddities, Megalodon teeth, and my vast collection of toys. Yes, I’m a grown adult, and no, I never got past collecting and enjoying toys.
From Madame Alexander to Kidrobot, promotional or limited edition, tin and vinyl, there’s a lot of little doo-dads to pack.
Speaking of toys, have you ever wondered what their inner workings would look like if they were living creatures? Yeah, me neither.
Luckily, Artist Jason Freeny is living in this world.
Freeny decided to answer the never-asked question: “What do toy guts look like?”
(Couldn’t resist a linking to this)
Check out more of Jason Freeny’s incredible artwork here. Look at me, classin’ up this drunk tank with FINE ART! WE’S FANCY!
Sigh, gotta get back to the pack-a-thon. See you in the funny papers.
