It's a new tissue case for 2009!

I really wanted to use this new fabric (bought at the same time as the robot fabric) for a larger project, but I've been thinking about making a tissue case for a few days now, so I just went ahead and used the fabric for it (I'm so ADD about larger projects these days; I keep making smaller things for instant gratification). I thought the print might've been too big for something so small, but it worked out. I ended up using a golden rod contrasting thread for the top, but now I'm thinking I should've tried to find some gold thread instead. Oh well. Better luck next time.

As is my New Year's Eve tradition, I watched the X-Files a few hours before midnight. I don't know why I do that (I wasn't even planning on watching the X-Files; It always just happens that way - is it still a tradition then?) because I always get really freaked out (I can't watch this show alone, even in broad daylight) and can't do things like go into the basement without thinking that Tooms is going to crawl out of the fucking ducts and eat my liver. Anyway, All Souls was the episode that freaked me out that night and all I could think of was Cartman was right about gingers being evil and having no souls. I think I need a new favourite TV show. No, that's a lie. I love the X-Files. The best seasons (1-5) are still better than 90% of the crap on TV today.


  1. Hahaha! Oldie and I have a Saucemas Eve XF tradition! (It's more of a coincidence than actual tradition. We always end up watching XF on Saucemas Eve and South Park marathons between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. on New Year's Day.)

    Once, we watched that episode about the cannibalistic chicken factory townies on SPACE network, and then when it was done and the theme music was playing, the clock turned to midnight and we were like, "HAHAHA, MERRY CHRISTMAS!" and then cackled loudly. It was awesome.

  2. Hahaha. It's all about the unintentional hilarity.
