Copping Out With Photos

I am having a hell of a time thinking of sometihg to blog about. Talked about cancer too much lately already. Cannot equal the cat costumes from last week. So what to do?


The Crush Your Cat's Head photo from Friday.

The Chip and Salsa Train I made for my brother a few years ago.

Chips-n-Salsa train!!! How cute! But it's got to hold more than three chips, right? Because I'll scarf an entire basket all by myself. Oh wait, back off the chips? Maybe that's what you're trying to say, eh?

Love-crushed Yoshi!! Mee-ow!

stampydurst said...

I suggest a picture of Yoshi in a sombrero either pulling or driving the salsa train...

spoonleg said...

yoshi driving the salsa train= best idea EVER. This head crushing pic is by far my favorite, by the way. Why does the salsa train only hold THREE CHIPS? Although cool, it would serve no functional purpose in my family unless you could cram at least 15 lbs of fried corn products into it.

Magical_M said...

I second (or third as the case may be) the Yoshi in sombrero pulling the salsa train pic.

So cool.

Any more interaction with spunky doctors?

kalki said...

Pwah! The chips and salsa train made me laugh just because it's so random - wasn't expecting to come here and see that. Pretty dang cool, though...

Candace said...

My kitty likes to have his head crushed, too. One of these days I'll send you a picture of it, just like I'll send you a blow-by-blow of My Evening With Henry Rollins.



Nessa said...

those are the biggest chips I've ever seen!

Kassi said...

I so WANT a salsa train..

Divine Calm said...

Now I LOVE to salsa dance, but I especially love your salsa train. How randomly brilliant of you.

Hey here's a topic for you to write if you already have written about this, just ignore me.

Who do you think is the most annoying writer ever? Who makes your blood pressure rise and your head explode? Perhaps you need something more soothing to write about, but I always feel rejuvenated after a good rant.

You know what the other chips said to these three chips?
You ride the short chips-n-salsa train!

To satisfy my chips and salsa desires, I need one of those "stop the traffic for 15 minutes" trains!

So cute of you though! But damn it, now I'm crazing chips and salsa!

circe said...

I want a salsa train. I love it!!

Squirl said...

Look at her long, point nose. I loooove it. I love Yoshi, even though I know she'd rip me to shreds if she had the chance.

That Chip and Salsa train in hilarious. And cute.

People all over the world
Join hands
Start a salsa train, salsa train...

Yoshi, rise up against the crushing, my cat buddy! Fight the power!

JessicaRabbit said...

Well you know I love Yoshi, and Wobbles is sitting in my lap meowing his approval. He loves a good head crushing as well.

Is your brother a gladiator? Cause that is totally a gladiators chip train. It just is ok.

Seriously, when Nick and I get married, you totally need to make our rings.

The salsa train- genius.

whfropera said...

If the link I sent you doesn't give you something to blog about, then I may have to go bury my head in the sand!!


Ern said...

Yes, three chips is not NEARLY sufficient for my south of the border noshing.

happyandblue2 said...

Poor cat.
The salsa train is certainly creative. That is all I have to say about that..

Sharkey said...

I love the salsa train! Have you created any other food 'jewelry'?

mrtl said...

Come on ride the train! How clever is that? You could make millions!

Von Krankipantzen said...

eclectic-I could call it the Weight Watcher's Chips & Salsa Train.

StampyD-that would crack me up BIG TIME!

spoonie-Yoshi'd put cat food in the bowl and try to pass it off as dip. Little shit.

magical m-alas no cute docs lately. Yawn...

kalki-you should have seen my brother's face when he opened this gift. Talk about unexpected.

misfit-I am holding you to that promise. Both the cat pic and the stories of my boyfriend.

silly n-giant jalapenos in the salsa too.

kassi-I would sooo love to make some more but I no longer have a jewellery studio. :-(

divine calm-I will have to think about that. Blood boiling author...Hmmmmm.

dima-you are right. This is more like a Chip & Salsa wagon.

circe-this is a one of a kind train. I wish I could make more.

squirl-she lookes like she was raised in a wind tunnel.

bucky-didn't you see her Halloween costumes? Now that was mean! Crushing is a walk in the park.

jessica r-actually your post reminded me of this pic of the Chip & Salsa Train as if you look at the end of the chip part of the train just before the salsa wagon part there are little flames. It is actually a Chip & Salsa Hot Rod!

amanda b- I used to love doing these whimsical things. I miss my old studio!

opera chick-your work is genius! I will be posting that link tomorrow morning.

ern-I need to make a Chip Reloader Machine.

happyandblue2-what can I say? You are very right.

sharkey-no I haven't but I have another piece I made which is fun like this. I will post it soon.

mrtl- I do weddings and bar mitzvahs!
