Look, here is proof that with plenty of detailed coaching and assistance the AF can do crafts!
Yay, all those years working with small kids pays off.
And, a lil something something from our main man Mitch...

In Kilkenny Ireland, they don't have anything American over there, it's very cool. But they did have a Subway sandwich shop. That was the one thing they had American, and that became the American Embassy to me. I would go out to a bar and piss off an Irish dude and have him chase me to the Subway. I said, "Dude, I'm sorry, but you're out of your jurisdiction. But you can have a cold cut combo, though."
I was in downtown Boise, Idaho, and I saw a duck, and I knew the duck was lost, 'cause ducks ain't s'posed to be downtown. There's nothin' for 'em there. So I went to a Subway sandwich shop, I said, "Let me have a bun." But she wouldn't sell me just the bun, she said that I had to have something on it. She told me it's against regulations for Subway to sell just the bun. I guess the two halves ain't supposed to touch. So I said, "Alright, well, put some lettuce on it," which she did. She said, "That'll be $1.75." I said, "It's for a duck." And they said, "All right, well, then it's free." See, I did not know that. Ducks eat for free at Subway! Had I known that, I would have ordered a much larger sandwich. "Let me have the Steak Fajita Sub - but don't bother ringing it up, it's for a duck! There are six ducks out there, and they all want Sun Chips!"
I think a rotisserie is like a really morbid ferris wheel for chickens. It's a strange piece of machinery... "We will take the chicken, kill it, impale it, and then rotate it. And I'll be damned if I'm not hungry! Because spinning chicken carcasses make my mouth water! I like dizzy chicken. With a side of potatoes of some sort."

OK next time i'm in Bangalore, and need to seek refuge, i'll be sure to run into the nearest Kentucky Fried Ckicken since it's considered part of the American Embassy and all! :P

That guy is too funny!

Will you make me one? Please? I'll make you an oragami frog? I'm quite proud of myself... I made my first one on Friday. I'm craft-challenged.

Suse~ I know!! He is a hoot, I love him. He died last year on the 29th of March so I am trying to remember to do quotes everyday till then.

Lily~ I am craft challenged too! But now I know how to do THAT. Its all about the technique, you know.
Send me a pic of your frog, sounds cool.

Logo, thanks for giving me my Mitch fix. I had watched several standup specials of his (hilarious as hell), but never remembered his name. Now I know.

Well the comments about the chicken definitely made me happy to be a vegetarian! Pass the potatoes please!

Grunt~ Glad to share the Mitch! I loved his shows I saw, always on TV, not live. He always made me laugh so hard, I definitely miss him.

Schnoodlepooh~ How about some tofu tenders and fries, just for you!

Lime~ I know, I do so love the dizzy chickens myself. One of my best memories of Italy, all the chicken places, buy one with their seasoned fries and voilĂ , dinner!

cool craft and of course I always love the bit of Mitch you add at the end of each post!

Never can get enough of Mitch!

Tell us more about the crafts!! That notebook is killer! The music notes are very pretty. And did you tie ribbon to the spiral part? Cool!

Breazy~ thanks! Glad you are enjoying.

Damasta~ I had a couple gals coach me through glueing craft paper and some old sheet music on to the cover of a notebook, then we used brown ink, from a stamp pad to antique it and then glued little crafty doo dads on the front.
There is ribbon tied around the spiral part, yes, and they showed me how to overlap and trim the corners so it looks all pretty. If one is not crafty one should do their best to have talented friends.
