Question of the Day

Many months ago, I received an email from Shaker Steffa B. telling me she had seen a small item at an art fair and wanted to send it to me. She had remembered that I love the movie Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and sent me this nifty little framed picture of two Klowns. I hung it on the wall of my office, and asked if I could write a post about it. I then promptly forgot to do so, because I'm an asshole.

Last week, Steffa wrote to tell me she had been crafting little clowns, and had made a Killer Klown for me. He arrived yesterday.

I was completely blown away by this. He's crafted entirely out of little wound-up pieces of paper. I'm unable to do very small detailed work like this because I have shaking hands, so I'm always impressed by very intricate crafting. Look at his klown collar! He's even got little ruffles around his wrists and ankles!

He's even holding a little paper balloon dog! How awesome is that! Coincidentally, the spiky-haired Klown is my favorite one in the movie. A thousand thanks, Steffa! I truly appreciate you thinking of me.

So, what is the last gift you received, large or small, that completely delighted you?
