Weirdness of the day: abusive Minnie Mouse

Weirdness of the day: freaking huge spider

Christmas presents: giant knot!

Behold! The largest knot I’ve tied to date. For the record, it’s Abok #2218. It has 50 points of intersection. The boys each wanted one for Christmas. I have one more to tie. They take an hour or so to do.

The Portage County Fair has its own special kind of trashiness, but the hyper-realistic doll babies were a freakiness unto themselves. Also, there were people dancing in lederhosen. I took video.
