Dying inside

We watched a movie Sunday night that I liked – Eagle vs. Shark. I won’t recommend it to you because I think that it would appeal to a very limited audience. It was like a wonderfully painful grown-up Napoleon Dynamite, set in New Zealand. (Brief synopsis: Lily is a big-eyed, quiet, upbeat loser who dreams of being with Jarrod, a super-egotistical, Napoleon-esque, non-cute loser.) Anyway, there was a line where she is admiring his horrible handmade candles, and he says, “I guess I’ve just got to keep creating or I’ll just die.” Trust me, it’s mildly funny.

*sigh* I miss having time to make ugly homemade candles.

Segueing into some good creativity, I think you should look at this. It will make you smile.

(You might remember Jacob. He’s this guy. And this guy.)

    Maybe to save time you could just create small things. Or burn small things.
