These are all the pictures I took while hanging out at Mel's house for a week. We had both finished work for the summer and were pretty much just happy to lie around doing nothing. I did a lot of origami. At first I just did it because I need to be doing something with my hands while watching TV, but then Mel told me how Sketch, a friend of ours, suggested making more origami Katamaris and selling them at cons. So since my origami book was at Clark, me and Topaz managed to extract the information I needed out of the Google print version and Amazon.

The other main event of this batch is our trip to Burger King where we ate the monstrosity that is the Quadruple Bacon Cheeseburger. After we finished that heart clogging experience, we discovered that Mel's car wouldn't start. It turned out to be a fried computer chip, and everything's OK now. We had some fun trying to get it started and watching it be towed away. Oh well. Thanks AAA!

The last set of pictures are from our attempt to shave Mo. Mo's fur is all gross and knotted so Mel finally couldn't take it anymore and started cutting fur off of him. We got a lot off him before he got sick of us and ran away. Oh well, it's a start.
