    Default What extras are you using?

    OK, some of it might seem silly, but c'mon... aren't we having fun??

    I bought a 12x4" mirror in a frame, took it out, and taped one edge with masking tape so I could hold it securely. Yes, it was a cheap one... I got a splinter from the dumb frame!!! I play with it against the pics.

    (I've only gotten some VERY weird stuff, nothing good. )

    I sometimes use a flashlight to see the details better.

    And I have a "ladybug" magnifying glass that I bought at a "dollar" store ages ago.

    I bought plastic transparency (overhead projector) sheets to draw on. With permanent markers, they double as "stained glass" drawing sheets for my daughter.

    I'll bite.

    Bought a box of transparency sheets, which are now all full of dandelion marks.

    I bought a page-sized magnifying glass, which I have determined is a piece of garbage.

    I also bought a regular magnifying glass, which is marginally better.

    I'm thinking of investing in an electron microscope next.

    transparencies, alphabet building blocks, magnifying loop, a half-dozen puzzle games off eBay, Lava soap (to wash off the gook from tree holes), a new book (because I've already torn the first apart at the binding) ... and considering buying a Magic Eye book to get my eyes cross-eyed and back in training.

    I like the electron microscope idea... Also thiunking about a second copy of the book so I can pull the first apart and scan it in with an OCR reader...

    Any other posts out there about the dandelions?

    Thanks

    brain, family, a large map with a protractor, a rather bad magnifying glass, a really beat up book, and about 3000000090000000022220001 little sheets of notepad paper

    *Of course*

    I forgot to mention that I bought a collapsable file folder... cheap plastic thing.

    I STILL have a pile of papers lying here...

    I didn't even think of transparencies, but got tracing paper instead, which works, but you have to strain a little harder to see through it. I also bought the carton of cigarettes, the Tylenol PM (to MAKE me fall asleep), a tape of soothing music to listen to when I do sleep so I don't have anymore nightmares of being captured by Rusful (and MAN, was he ever UGLY in my dream!) and am thinking of investing in a therapist next!!!!! We should have a 12 step program for this....

    Whew...I gotta get help!
