I've been spoiled by each generous comment! Smiley Thank you all for taking the time to write!

I've never been a good joke-teller in person, so I'm overjoyed to learn this post brought some giggles, hooray Smiley

****
A) That was hilarious.
B) Awesome idea.
C) You = adorable.
That is all.  
BabyDragon & Miss Whitney : The ABCs have never been so kind haha

ha ha ha, that right there was freakin hilarious. it must have take you forever to get all of those pics too.
Grin I always love your posts...super awesome crochet goodies + awesome story + fabulous photos = AWESOME!!!
You are officially my crochet hero and idol!!  Another wonderful creation and hilarious story to go along with it.  I must give credit to your wonderful photographer, the pics are always awesome!  I love the action of the cop chase lol.
Yay for crochet aromatherapy devices (orange oil has saved my life, but I recommend to go and get the good ecological stuff, it will still be cheap as orange is so rich in essential oils), and wow, great pics on your story! I have a friend who makes this kind of pictures, so I can totally imagine all the fuss that was necessary for this! Hehe, it was totally worth it, and you found awesome backgrounds.
chobah & hippiejo74 & ConnieStieler & Ruby Copperhead: Thanks for mentioning the pics! My talented girlfirend photographed the action pix, and I'm grateful that she was such a patient partner-in-crime!

You have now made it to the top of my list of awesome! I love this, and I think I love you.
PaleAngelLex: When I was the nerd in high-school, I wish you walked into my school cafeteria and yelled your proclamations in front of the cool kids Cheesy

A.nother T.errific O.bject M.ade
My goodness, I never realized Vancouver was so dangerous a place for aromatherapy- be careful! Cheesy
Dragonflywer: If you visit Vancouver, I recommend you bring along a Kevlar vest along with your aromatherapy Cheesy I wish I did!

You have a wonderful sense of humor! Love your work and your stories to go with it. Never lose your sense of haha! It's a rare gift in life!
ilovesnails: You gave us a new mantra to repeat when smelling aromatherapy: "Keep your sense of haha, Keep your sense of haha..." Yes, humour keeps our spirits young, right?

Bravo!  Bravo!  I think you are my favourite poster here, because not only are your creations unique, high quality, and so inventive, but all your photos are awesome, and the stories.... MY GAWD your stories! You are a riot. I am entertained every time. Don't stop creating, and DON'T STOP posting here!!! Cheesy Cheesy
Retro-Rose: Encouragement from you and the supportive members of the crafting community is like creative fuel for a zillion more creations, thank you!

OMG, I loved your post, even my BF got a chuckle out of your story, and he's not crafty at all!!!
Tygermane: I'm always happy to hear about non-crafty boyfriends/husbands being interested in something crafty!  Now is your chance to casually introduce the SC stitch to him Cheesy

You are just AWESOME. Grin Thank you for another hilarious post! I love reading them and looking at your amazing crocheted masterpieces. The A.T.O.M. looks like it might have been particularly complicated, but well worth it!
InkStainedHands: The trickiest thing was alternating the black stitches with the yellow stitches (for the stripes). It was a tangled mess back there! Also, those LEDs were taped onto batteries, and those batteries would keep falling off when I was running around haha

Woo, You are somethin' else! I expect to see coverage of you when Vancouver hosts all those news crews looking for local color.
McJulie-O: Since you're expecting a television appearance, I will run up to those Vancouver news trucks with the A.T.O.M. next year Wink

LOL very cute  Grin What an interesting device. Great Job! I love the looks of the old people haha
AprilDraven: Yes, their reactions were priceless! My gf and I just hung around the bus stop and sat next to some interesting faces Smiley My gf's mom did play the subway passenger, and I'm thankful that she risked arrest for me!

you need your own sitcom....or at least a DYI show! i would watch...religiously!
I second this... You should start a pod cast on itunes!!! I'd totally watch! Mix your crafty-ness and your digital art. It would be awesome. I'd be your first subscriber.

curiousfae & Retro_Rose: Thanks for the nominations! Cheesy I'm actually not too chatty in person, so any DIY show or podcast would eventually reveal me to be the nerd I still am Smiley But I promise more videos & digital art in the near future!

you live in vancouver area? i live in richmond! giggle giggle, and i agree witht ya, people here tend to give very strange looks if you aren't boring bland and a clone, just like them.
-that was harsh bu you get my point!:)
luvelycritter: I'm sure you show your Richmond neighbours that you have more joy by being creative than by being part-of-the-crowd Smiley

This is so funny.  I love this idea.  The creation was fun enough but then you had to go and add a great story to it.
ShiningStar: The stories and photos take a little more work but they add a lot more fun to the whole process Smiley I'm thrilled to share some of that fun!

Yay for crochet aromatherapy devices (orange oil has saved my life, but I recommend to go and get the good ecological stuff, it will still be cheap as orange is so rich in essential oils), and wow, great pics on your story! I have a friend who makes this kind of pictures, so I can totally imagine all the fuss that was necessary for this! Hehe, it was totally worth it, and you found awesome backgrounds. Did you talk people into looking like that at you, or did they do it spontanously?
Ruby Copperhead: Thanks for the quality orange oil suggestion. It's amazing how a smell can have such a psychological effect!

The first bus-stop reaction was the real-deal. The subway reaction was from my gf's generous mom, who had to make that same expression for two hours on six different subway cars haha

OMG!!! I'm so glad you got away! Your crochet aromatherapy thingy is awesome as was your story. Will you be my best-friend? LOL.
ShammyCrafty: BFF!

Huh... What a strange coincidence that the police would mysteriously start chasing you.  Must be a case of mistaken identity!  With the sheer volume of people at the olympics, I don't know if your ATOM would be enough.  Imagine the reek of those sweaty athletes!  Maybe you could crochet... oh I dunno.. a whole bunch of tubes that are dipped in orange oil, string them all together and strap them to your chest?  Then you'd be surrounded by the lovely aromas!  I'd suggest making them red, for pure aesthetic.  Maybe a deep reddish orange, the color of a blood orange?  Wink
(on a totally un-goofy note, sooo clever!)
themuppet: What a dynamite idea!

Apparently you already have quite the Craftster following, but I can't believe no one pointed out what was obvious to me from the beginning - the reason strangers react negatively to your A.T.O.M. and the reason you were pursued by the fuzz is clearly because the logo on the side is being mistaken for the biohazard symbol!  It's not quite the same, but close enough for a layperson to make a mistake.   Cheesy
ryana: It does kinda resemble a biohazard symbol, doesn't it? I wonder if orange growers face the same mixup on their trucks! Cheesy

****
Thank you again for each sweet comment and for the overwhelming generosity!

I'm such a huge fan of your stuff...not only are your various crochet projects creative, they are ever-so-useful! Everyone knows that subways smell horrible - an A.T.O.M. should be installed in every car! I first twigged to your genius upon viewing the 'Bubble Trouble' gun, and I've been envious of your awesomeness ever since. Keep up the supercrazybrilliant ness, please. I look forward the next project you dream up. :-D
