So I'm back. School is done for the semester, so it's time to catch up on some long overdue
Rest assured, I have been racking up the good deeds. I am so getting canonized (the Vatican's just catching up with the paperwork).
For my latest hobby (read: procrastination tactic) I've taken up origami. Which, by the way, is awesome. Right up until you realize you just folded your title page into a crane.
So while I was "working" in the coffee shop, I took a break (from reading Penny Arcade) to make an origami flower. The youtube video says it takes five minutes. Mine took forty-five minutes.
As it turns out, I have the dexterity of a two year old. Who knew?
Thoroughly absorbed in the task I hardly noticed that I'd gained somewhat of an audience (seriously, I was staring at this piece of paper like I was trying to melt it with my eyes). Evidently the mother and child beside me were thoroughly fascinated by my efforts.
They made a game of guessing what I was trying to make. Turns out the kid guessed flower. On like the third fold. Because, clearly, she's a witch.
So when I finished, I gave it to her. So she wouldn't hex me.
And it made her day.
Besides, the last thing I needed was physical proof of my procrastination.
