critter

The toad fish in this picture looks fake, like somebody made it out of old carpet scraps and foam and two fancy antique mother of pearl buttons. In fact, it looks very much like several creatures that live in my parents' basement, legacy of my grandmother's costume and set projects.


Also, my household has become obsessed with baby goats. And dogs. It must be spring. Please send livestock! They can live on the half-roof out the kitchen door.

Emily and I have a long-standing plan to acquire an apartment donkey. What's an apartment donkey, you ask? It's a donkey of a suitable size to live in our apartment, of course. Think of the lovely sound of little hooves clacking across the hardwood floor. I love spring.

Have you considered a miniature donkey? Still a bit large for a Manhattan apartment, but such fuzzy bellies!
