Even though I’ve only recently been made aware of the true nature of the creation of the universe, my enthusiasm for FSMism has clearly been noted by the Flying Spaghetti Monster as he’s appeared to me while I was working on a hologram.
Alright. This sounds like fun.
I swear that we didn’t buy a huge ass at the store this weekend.
They were trellises, really.
After we got home though, I found that the receipt said… Continue reading Obelisk Ass
Have to toot my own horn. I’ll be starting a holography class through the Plano Parks and Recreation Center system this fall.

It was a bit of an impulse buy but I was looking for another model from Averatec that had everything the C3500 has but no tablet and after getting a demo I decided to buy one.

Fortunately none of these show up in the final image.
