Now, before you twitch out from a bad-grammar sighting, and before this post will make any sense at all, I suggest you view  this blog post by Allie Brosh: http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/04/alot-is-better-than-you-at-everything.html

Having read the post, I was immediately inspired to create one of these adorable creatures. Luckily for me, I had a chunk of white fun fur gathering dust in my fabric stash which was just begging to become an Alot!

Here is the Alot: I think he's adorable for the same reasons that Eeyore is, you can't help but want to hug him to make him feel better!



Upon seeing the Alot, my roommate asked me to make one for her, too. I only had a strange shaped chunk of fun fur left, so Alot's baby brother is shaped differently. Perhaps a different breed of Alot? This one has a tail, too, and he is more disgruntled than sad.



I love this Alot, and hope you do, too!

I recognized the Alot from the thumbnail Cheesy I wanted to make one too, but i couldn't be arsed yet. Perhaps the smaller brother is an Alittle Cheesy (not a proper common-grammar-mistake like the Alot, but it matches lookswise Wink )

lol...Smiley having never heard of Mr. Alot before, my initial impression was that your alot resembled a depressed misshapen goat Smiley And it made me giggle. Then I read the "hyperbole" link - LOL! I have never come up with such creative distractions for my own anal-retention habits re grammar and spelling...the your/you're being my personal pet hate. Maybe I should suggest that chickie fix that one up for me Wink

In the meantime, nice! I like it alot!

I'm going to have to make an Alot for my Dad, the original grammar nazi.  He was constanly correcting us as kids.  Drives me bonkers when apostrophes are used incorrectly, or for that matter not used at all.

Her skin is white cloth,
and she's all sewn apart
and she has many colored pins
sticking out of her heart.
     But she knows she has a curse on her,
a curse she cannot win.
For if someone gets
too close to her,
the pins stick farther in.
