Top FIVE clues....

...that YOU, our entertaining neighbours, threw your bread crusts over the fence:

5. In the past you've thrown over an old tape deck and a broom handle, just to name a few...what's a little bread?
4. You regularly throw your junk/rubbish over on our side - it's not a huge leap of logic.
3. You litter. On our side of the fence. Regularly - let's face it - you probably litter on your side of the fence too.
2. It wasn't us.
1. White bread, White bread, WHITE bread!!!!!!!!!

....I want my MTV......!

....I love how people seem to think that us crafty genius types can just whip up an amigurumi (crochet doll/soft toy) for next to nothing - $20?! No really, it's a real compliment - it says something regarding how resourceful you perceive us to be - seriously - $20 - that's BELOW shoe-string, isn't it?

How exactly are people estimating these prices - that's what I'd like to know. Let's talk about your job for a second here. Just exactly how much do you get paid to do whatever it is that you do...., hmmmmmmm? How much do you get paid PER hour? And - just keeping that figure in mind - how many hours do you think, just roughly, it would take to create one of these crocheted snugglies? Hmmmmmmm? But perhaps that is the wrong question to ask.....perhaps I should be asking rather just how long do you think it would take you to make such an item? Well.....? I bet you'd like to be paid for e.v.e.r.y s.i.n.g.l.e o.n.e of those hours - wouldn't you? Not to mention materials - that is the 5 plus different shades it takes to create this little creature and give it hair, spots, facial features - eyes, nose, mouth, ears, general detail.....

Just some food for thought.....
