Ice Time

Because I kept forgetting (more like being too lazy) to post photos, I ended up with this huge backlog of photos to go through. THEN, while I was screwing around with some security settings in LJ-Sec, my public entries magically changed to friends-only, so I had to go back and fix them all. Posting on LJ should not be this much work.







John invited me to come to the Ice Festival! This dude was sculpting stuff.



One of many ice penguins.



Ice Subway sandwich, which looks way more appetizing than anything you can actually get at Subway.







Someone left this poor little dog tied up outside in the cold :( When we came back it was gone (hopefully a good thing).





Club Fitness weightliftin' penguin. The shot of the whole sculpture didn't come out very well.



Ice money! By the way, when I break into the rap scene that's totally the name I'm using.





Sunshine Daydream had two sculptures... which, of course, both had to do with the Grateful Dead. That bear looked really wrong up close.



Ice slide! I almost convinced John to go on it. He did not, so instead here are some random kids.



Ice Lantern! There are little green things in the ends of it - I wonder if they lit up at night?





This picture sucks, but ice hookah amused me.



I did not know Chipotle had a slogan. Unfortunately since I saw that episode of South park with Billy Mays's ghost, I now forever associate Chipotle with Chipotlaway.



Some people playin' music.





Ice camel! I took these picture for Holly. She probably isn't reading this. Maybe someone can show it to her, haha.



Ice dragon is pretty bad-ass.



What the guy in the first picture was sculpting. It's the Arch with the St. Louis skyline! Pretty cool (...pun intended, har har).

Before Christmas, John and I also went to this thing at the zoo where they had up zoo-themed lights and decorations. Most of these photos were terrible, but I figured I'd share a couple for the hell of it:



Flamingos for Jess!







Polar bears, even though all the STL zoo's polar bears died. Whoops.





The penguins never stop being the most entertaining thing at the zoo.



Penguins are even awesome in Christmas light form!

Fish photos:



Blarf, being ridiculous.



Momloach and babyloach! So cute.









Ziggy (Stardust), my angelfish. He (or she, I guess, since there's no way to tell) has been doing pretty well, aside from the fact that my red tailed shark went crazy and ate the top of his fin off. It went crazier still and won't stop viciously attacking my killifish. ...Does anyone want a red tailed shark? Seriously, someone take this asshole fish.



A Grimace Lego. I found it while looking for Lego people.



I only just realized how weird it is that Hardees, at one point, apparently sold sewing needles, and my mom and I have been using them forever. I asked Google for more info, but it wasn't any help. Does anyone else remember this?



STILL working on Wendy on Wheels #3 (almost done). I haven't even drawn anything besides the book. I barely feel like drawing anything right now because the last two months have been horrible. Good news: Some friends also decided to cement their plans to go abroad, so this summer I'm going to London, and also probably to France and Germany! Which means I'm going to be broke forever, but it'll totally be worth it.

Aww, ice camel is smiling! I think. Ice sculptures are the only thing shitty cold weather is good for. Why aren't midwestern towns all ice sculptures all the time?

What killed the polar bears? Poor polar bears!

Your angelfish has a really serious face.

I think being broke and doing cool stuff is infinitely preferable to having money and never going anywhere. Have fun in London! Eat bacon chips!

They really should be. I want ice sculptures in my yard.

I have no idea why the polar bears died. I don't think anyone else does, either, since I have yet to hear someone give a definitive answer.

Yeah, that's true! I do travel a lot for not having much money, haha.

I'LL HAVE CATS AND ORGANIC FOOD AND PEDESTRIAN-FRIENDLY SITE-SEEING FOR YOU.

OMG why does Omaha not do an Ice Party? That's so wonderful! I will show my sibling the Ice Camel! And all the other shit. I wonder how long it all lasted before it melted. And why anyone would pass up a chance to slide down some ice. ... Also, all that ice makes me want icy, icy water to drink.

FLAMINGO LIGHTS. I love St. Louis's zoo. Mostly because it's free, but also it had cool things. It's just that our zoo is not free. I guess that's the price we pay for having an indoor jungle or something.

LOACH DUO. THEY'RE CUTE. I'm sorry your fish always have a dick amongst them. I like the srsface angelfish!

SRSLY, DON'T FORGET TO COME VISIT ME THIS YEAR. <3 HAVE A BETTER TIME IN LONDON THAN I DID AND EAT SWISS ROLL. AND GO TO SOUTHWARK CATHEDRAL. AND BRING ME SOME TUBE MAPS. :B

I'LL COME VISIT YOU, IT WILL BE AWESOME.

I kind of want to see a half-melted ice sculpture that got re-frozen. It's neat how they're made, too, though.

SWISS ROLL I will remember that.
