Comic 533 – “Glowy Goodness”
Errol: First off, I tried making the bologna egg bowl thing. It didn’t work out that well, but it still tasted good.
Secondly, I have a picture of the glowy totoro on my geek knitting blog.
Thirdly, I tweeted Neil Gaiman to help with our IndieGoGo campaign. Maybe we can get his attention. 😀
Manda: This one is a flat-out lie! I was TOTALLY excited to see a glow in the dark Totoro! It looked like it was haunting the room!
I can corroborate Manda’s story here. I was on Google+ Hangouts with her and Errol when Errol decided to turn off the lights and demonstrate his glow-in-the-dark Totoro. As soon as he did, both Manda and I flat-out squee-ed. I don’t even know what Manda said because both of us were gushing simultaneously about how awesome the Totoro looked as Errol danced it about through the darkness.
The Neil Gaiman tweet went out at an unfortunate time; Mr. Gaiman was in the middle of an unexpected Carnegie Hall appearance. With luck, he’ll eventually see it.
It’s true, I was having Manpans channel her inner Debs. I kid! I kid!
Actually, I really don’t know what the reaction was, because I was so excited bouncing it around in the dark making silly noises.
I just assumed her response was as always… “What’s wrong with you?” response. 😀
I think the one thing that IS true was that I coined it “Radioactive Totoro”
Hey I thought I was on Google+ Hangouts with her and Errol when Errol decided to turn off the lights and demonstrate his glow-in-the-dark Totoro! I guess I got the encore show 🙂 I took a screen shot but I just realized I never pasted it into mspaint and it’s gone now 🙁
But bouncy glowy chibbi Totoro was cool!
& btw The Jaxom and I had immediately decided we needed to try the bologna thing too.. we just need supplies..
Hmm…maybe he did the same thing six or seven times last night with different configurations of chatters, just because he could. He SEEMED to be doing it for the first time when I saw it, but one never knows with Errol.
It was the first time with you guys. Sans eyes.
With manpans and Brian, it was with eyes. 😀 Sans weird noises. 😀
This is amazing! Were you using glow in the dark wool or what?
Yes! Haven’t you read my knitting blog? 😀
Ooo I want a glow in the dark Totoro! XD
Me too! Me too! Now I must get glow in the dark wool…. :: plots::
Oooh! you guys knit? 😀
I don’t knit.. or crochet, but I do have a pressing urge to buy that yarn now lol.
I crochet. My mom and grandma knit. They keep promising to teach me….
My mom wants to know where you got glow in the dark wool.
I found it at Zeller’s! 😀 But I hear they’ve discontinued it. 🙁
I found a thread on how to make your own glow in the dark yarn. Its a bit complicated though and needs to be done carefully due to some of the ingredients.
I’ll let mom know. Did she show you the wool she made in October, Jez? She was so excited about having dyed her own wool.
Thank you both!
That is totally CRAZY! 😀 Is it only under black light though? Or does it glow? I couldn’t tell from a quick skim…
Not entirely sure. It seems to just be for under a black light.
So what ungodly creature is born if one is bit by a radioactive chibii Totoro?!
In what crazy universe do you live that Chibi-anything bite people?
They do when they are radioactive. It’s a rule.
Maybe your super power could be cat bus summoning.
I could live with that. 😀
Rachito-man! It even has a hyphen! And from the name, I think he is similar to Fix It Felix in powers.
I keep thinking Dorito – man. But that’s not the same thing. 😀
