(Just found this post which I started in JANUARY! Been a little busy around here, whoa.)
I have children. I think I've mentioned that once or twice before. My Nine-year old is ridiculously computer savvy and probably a little too interested in things like Internet memes and Minecraft and Linux Servers and that sort of thing.
But as with every family, whatever big brother is into MUST be awesome if you are his little sister, and thus Nyan Cat has flown into our home, bringing with her all such rainbows and cuteness and goofy Japanese Pop Songs.
For those of you who don't have the good fortune of hearing "Nyanyanyanyan" running at full blast on the computer speaks while you are trying to think about what to make for dinner, I'll tell you this: Suffice to say, Nyan Cat is basically a video, starring a pixel art kitty (with a cherry pop-tart for a body), flying through the sky trailing a rainbow. The video features a Japanese Pop song entitled "Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya" and has been playing constantly in my house for a couple of weeks. There seems to be some sort of "how long you have watched" element to all of this, which is kinda strange, seeing how it's the same background scene scrolling and scrolling and scrolling....
In any case, what this has lead to is an absolute INSISTENCE by my four-year old that I crochet her a Nyan Cat.
I like a challenge.
Here she is.
|Ready to Fly through the Sky!|
| I SHOULD have stuck with the pixel-art theme and made her 'lil cheeks|
square as well, but I tried round cheeks just as a lark, and I really just
liked them better. As far as amigurumi goes, anyway.
|You'll note the pink sparkle sequins. Genius Touch, that. |
HIM: Hi. Apparently I have a bad attitude today.
HIM: Yeah. Let's head out the 76.
Me: Ummmm... Ok
("Head out the 76" is a euphemism for playing away the afternoon at a local Casino. We play Nickel Slots maybe once every three months or so. If you take a set amount of money, it's cheaper than dinner and a movie. No kidding.)
He must REALLY need a break. I know he has boatloads of things to do, but I'm not complaining.
I'll let you know if I win a billion dollars. HAHAHAHAHA!
