Okay, first off, if you don't want to see, like, bones and stuff, you should probably skip this one, okay?
This is a box that used to contain Christmas cards:
In case you can't read my chicken scratch, the note on the box says "Do not shake - skeleton inside".
When you come to my place, there is stuff like that just lying around all over. Which is probably why nobody ever comes to visit.
Here is what's inside the box:
That's why I was asking you guys about where birds like to be. I found that skeleton in the parking lot at work, at the base of the stairs. And it was really weird, because usually there's an intermediate stage before something gets skeletal. I mean, first it's like a dead bird with feathers and guts and stuff, then it starts to decompose and the bugs are eating it, and then, eventually, it reaches skeleton stage. But this thing just appeared one day as a full-fledged skeleton, with no in-between.
Well! Of course I had to pry it off the blacktop, poor thing. And now I'm going to incorporate it into some kind of art-thingie. I was just going to mount it on some cloud fabric with some leaves around it so it could be like it was in a tree (per your suggestions), but then I had to go and start thinking about the whole thing, and now I'm bogged down in, "what would be the perfect way to display these bones?", which means I've basically screwed the pooch, idea-wise, and the project may never get done if I don't just choose a direction and GO. Oh, and I tend to anthropomorphize the shit out of everything, which doesn't make working with bones and stuff any easier, I'll tell ya that right now.
You just got a little glimpse into my brain, there. Scary, isn't it?
