Monster Island

I have been making monsters! Rarrrrrrr! Turns out I'm not very good at drawing monsters as I don't think they're meant to be cute, but heh, the song is called Monster Island so the characters are monsters. That's all there is to it.

Monster Island

And now the news.

House eclectech is very happy. A baby is on the way! Oh my!

According to the BBC I'm part of a trend of women who went to uni and put off babies until their thirties. It's been a while since I've been part of a trend, it's rather reassuring in its own way. I wonder if the rest of my pregnant peers are as keen as I am on these hats, which are almost tempting me to attempt knitting.

No news, just monkeys and penguins

Life is a little insane at the moment. I distracted myself last night by editing together some, erm, highlights of animal footage I've filmed recently. It ended up including lots of licking, nibbling, mild penguin vomit consumption and defecation and one very, very cheeky monkey. I suspect this says more about me than the animal kingdom.

There was a nice moment on the full soundtrack of a woman answering numerous questions from her small daughter about what the monkey was doing. She gave very impressive responses and the wee girl seemed to be satisfied, finishing the conversation after a long pause by stating in a very matter of fact manner "I can see his winky". The adults there treated the whole thing far more childishly, with many a stifled giggle.

The baby penguins are at Edinburgh Zoo at the moment, ludicrously cute and well worth a visit.

On an unrelated note I've added some new images to my illustrated palindrome collection and the revo now features interactive disco dogs as well as cats.

And none of the above are anything to do with why my life is insane at the moment. I suspect that should worry me.
