I Was Robbed...

I bought this at the grocery store without reading the label carefully - I had passed hunger and was in the midst of a full-on hyperglycemic daze. The promise of a butterscotch waffle was more than I could handle. I imagined a light, fluffy (but not too soft) miniature waffle/cookie, coated in a creamy butterscotch icing...

So I felt utterly duped when I opened the tin in the car (in the grocery store parking lot!) and found that it was in fact hard candies, like the kind your grandmother keeps in a dish...

That's when I got a closer look at the full label: PANTRY CANDIES. What the hell are pantry candies? When I got home, I was still so worked up by my waffle fantasy that I considered going back to store and getting some Eggos, vanilla ice cream, butterscotch sauce, and whipped cream and making a sundae on top of a waffle. But then I talked myself down from the ledge and decided that that would be crazy and possibly really disgusting.

I Hate Elf on a Shelf

I did give him sort of a 'makeover'
He actually looks like this.
It's the craze nowadays to put this creepy elf doll on a shelf in your house and tell your kids it's watching them in order to report back to Santa daily. What the hell? Is Santa seriously outsourcing this responsibility? Or maybe he's dead and the elves had to take over. If I had to deal with this little elf creep as a kid, I'd chuck him in a snow bank. I found this good article about holiday panopticonisms.

Burgers and fries, hotdog and shake, sub and fries.

These are photos of dog toys that I took at Stop and Shop. They're sold in pairs. I bought a few of the subs and fries.

Horrid little doodles

The best of the worst from my sketchbook. I know this first one is pretty unremarkable but I like the guy in the middle. I also included some from my 'men with no torso' series. It's something I doodle all the time. 

Happy Holidays!

Faces in Public Spaces - Part Three

I shot these photos in Paris on Rue Poulet, a strange, deserted side street with many wig shops that all seemed closed despite it being mid-day...
