Tut, tut. Looks like rain

i got this dress for elliot because i loved the vintage pattern. once i pointed out the umbrellas on it, she had to don her rainboots and umbrella in the torrential 90-degree august sizzle. i would call it a parasol save for the fact she’s in shade.

Robotopia

August 9, 2009

we are family. i got all my robots and me. meet the robot family elliot made yesterday morning. the ones with no arms are the dad and mom. the bunny one is the big sister, the little one is the baby and the in-between one is the sister’s’s sidekick. i can’t remember their names but they change on a near hourly basis. they even go to the pool swimming. peter will vouch that the logistics (of carefully transporting them from the house to the pool without breaking them five times along the way into many little robot chunks all over the pavement) are mindboggling. oh, wait, they did break five times along the way into many little robot chunks all over the pavement. was it worth it? we don’t know. the robots aren’t talking.

you didn’t know trumpet cameras existed, did you? elliot had better get this idea trademarked, stat. the viewfinder is kind of awkward and she hasn’t quite figured out which button is the shutter, but nevertheless she was taking pictures of all sorts of things all over our house with it. move over, lomo.
