Okay, one more

Last Dr. Seuss post for real. I was informed by a co-worker this morning that today is Dr. Seuss's birthday. So perhaps it was a strange quirk of fate that there's been all of this build-up to the completion of the fish.

Trina has challenged me to make the Cat in the Hat, Sam I Am, and Fox in Socks to go along with the fish. I know I can make the Cat in the Hat's hat very easily... but I'm still pondering the rest of the crowd. I just have this vague recollection of many Dr. Seuss characters (the fish included) being sort of spiky looking, so I think I'm going to have to round out the spikes to actually do this. Maybe amigurumi for all of the animals! :)

In other news, if you have ever read the graphic novel of "30 Days of Night" and are thinking about watching the movie, be prepared for a major letdown. Alternately, if you saw the movie and are thinking about reading the graphic novel, be prepared for a much better storyline. I haven't a clue WHY they made the changes they did. Steve Niles was even involved in the writing of the screenplay, and they couldn't get the story straight?!

Also, Josh Hartnett bothers me. A lot. I know the precise reason for this, but that doesn't seem to help me forget how much he bothers me. Plus, he always plays his character exactly the same... doesn't matter if he's a hitman, a random college guy, or a sheriff.

Funny I saw the Dr Suess birthday on the news last night and immediately thought of you and your fish... cool coincidence!

I think you have a great idea, Dawn. Long live Dr. Suess, at least in all of our imaginations!
