I just finished my model pirate ship. And all that crazy rigging and tiny little knots and glue and paint… I imagine Calvin and Hobbes making models which result in a clump of glue with parts sticking out in various places. So here I was feeling very proud of myself and I foolishly decide to look up model ships on ebay. OMG. There are people out there in their obsessive compulsive insanity who create exact replicas of these huge and complicated- with rigging and pulleys and actual hull plaiting. These people need to be dragged from their homes, glue washed from their fingers and taken out to see the light of day. For example
I am just going to forget about these losers and be proud of my awesome model. With hand painted pirate flags, and rigging!

In other news, I am going to have breakfast. I love soft boiled eggs on toast. My folks have spent the last 25 years trying to figure out how to do it right and they have got it down to an art. mmmmm.
