Oh, and she gave me the extra bowling pin fabric, so I can make a matching zipper pouch for the bag!

That stuff is amazing! I love all the jesus stuff. Everyone made such awesome stuff in this swap!

I was thinking about it earlier and for some reason this thought popped in my head - I wish there were a mashup of the song by the killers where they say "He doesn't look a thing like Jesus". I think somebody should get a hold of that video and throw a pic of the Jesus in there every friggin time they say that. And maybe pics of some 8 year olds when they say "when you were young". But then I'd never be able to get that damn song out of my head because I'd be watvhing it all the time.

Everything looks super awesome.  Love the scissors box and the bags and the toes....'

You are all so talented and generous!  That is it.  I will try to limit myself to one swap at a time and try not to be studying for certification exams at the same time.

You ALL rock.

I received from danger.kitty and it is one awesome package! I'm going to try and get pics right now while it's still light outside.

Thank you so much!

awesome! My camera died while uploading the pics so I didn't get to that yet. Waiting for batteries to charge. I'll explain everything in your photo.

The achiever shirt - I'd seen those from pics of Lebowski fests and I love it.

Walter's dirty undies - the size of a cosmetics bag. The band says Walter on it and the label is even doctored to say 2X for the size. When I unzipped the bag there was quite the surprise. The lining looks like shit. Literally. Like poo. Just like you would imagine walter's dirty undies looking like. HILARIOUS!

There's a shrinky dink charm bracelet with balls, pins, a toe, a silhouette of what looks like nixon bowling (think of the pic The Dude has), and a little devil woman that looks like a cross between my avatar, Maude in the dream sequence, and those mudflap ladies that are also called reclining ladies. I love that charm and may have to use it on occasion as a pendant.

Drink coasters that say "Hey, careful man! There's a beverage here! - I'm going to have to make sure my roomie doesn't steal them when she moves out - she loves the Big L and her favorite color is orange.

Then there is a crochet? bowling ball hackey sack which I will use to throw at the TV when politicians are annoying me. "This aggression will not stand!"

Some bowling pin cards which I will use to sent a little note to the bowling alley behind my house that I applied at during this swap. I still want the job but man that would have been awesome to get in there during this swap. I was hoping to get my hands on some bowling-themed goodies so I applied. I needed a second job anyway. I'll be wearing my charm bracelet if I get an interview.

And, last but not least, mini bowling game. Now I can play along in my bedroom while listening to the bowling alley sounds coming in my window. Realistic sound effects, abide!

I love it all!

On a sad note - I messed up with my partner's postal code and she's in another country so it may take a long time to get there. I copied down the address at like 3:00 in the morning after working on a project that royally screwed me over and never made it into the package. True to its nature of being The Jesus themed, it really fucked me in the ass.

Haha. I totally LOLed at your description of the undies wallet, licalee!  The lining is brown camo for all of you interested parties...  The silhouettes that licalee describes are supposed to be Maude dressed as the valkarie from the dream sequence (thus the "devil horns" and the other of the guy bowling is indeed from the pic that The Dude has Smiley  Glad you like everything.  The bowling  ball is indeed crochet and you could use it as a hackey sac or as a pin cushion.  Good luck on getting the new job

Haha - I get totally over descriptive at times. It does look a little like brown cammo but I have a twisted sense of humor and it's unlike the cammo I'm familiar with.

It's, well, splattery. I just couldn't resist posting my initial reaction - you will not be likely to hear someone say something "looks like shit" in a swap gallery any time soon.

Thanks for the "good luck"! It would really be nice to have a second job that I could walk to in less than a minute. And Bowling!

And now for something completely different - me bowling in a Lebowski-esque alley.

I'm still working on better pics if I can get them w/my 2.1 megapixel cam. I've been insanely busy this week wrapping up the swap and getting ready for my roomie to move out. The original pics I took are kinda crappy...

Great stuff, guys!

I received a poster and t-shirt from my partner, ophelia, but am still waiting for the crafty package. Pix when I get it!
