New idea

hokay, after I talked w/ John, he made me see the error of my ways. Kind of. Anyways, change of plan: umbrella, which is no longer an umbrella, but just happens to be in the shape of one, is an extension of my spine. I've already begun paper mache-ing it, and it looks sweet. Kind of Tim Burton-ish. Anyways, it's an extension of my spine, going up over my head, with other bones branching out. Those will be covered with pieces of plastic bags that I obtain on various shopping expeditions, and in the end the spinal extension will have the function of an umbrella, to deflect rain, sun, fairy dust, what have you.

The structure for my umbrella, I've decided, will be made of straws, and I'll paper mache over them w/ newspaper so they'll be able to hold up better. Thanks to Bursley cafeteria for unknowingly supplying the straws.

CFC Project

New Project for CFC: We have to construct a body extension out of garbage/recyclables. I think I'm going to make an umbrella, and have it attach to my shoulder with a harness. Not sure what kind of garbage I'm going to use, though. I also have to take a look at a real umbrella to see if I want to make mine collapse or not.
