This week's Tungsten Hippo post is about how our current "mash up" age might not be as unique as we think it is. It is inspired by ideas from a couple of different short ebooks. It is not long, and I feel like perhaps there is more to the topic than I have understood at this point. I'm still thinking about it, but decided to go ahead and post what I have now, anyway. Maybe there will be some follow up posts later.
And that's about all I have this weekend. Mr. Snarky came home on Thursday. It is good to have him home. He brought the kids a couple of Manga dolls (which they love) and some colorful Hello Kitties (also loved, and currently riding in the back of a dump truck). He also brought them yukatas, which made them squeal with glee. The girls are ridiculously cute in them, but I have no idea what we'll do with them now that we have pictures of them being cute in them. He brought me a rabbit, which is appropriate because I collect rabbit things, and like to find interesting rabbits to buy when I travel.
I was initially puzzled as to why it lacks eyes, but between @BetsyPhd and the day care teacher who is Japanese-American, I have learned that it is a daruma doll. I am supposed to draw one eye in and make a wish. When the wish comes true, I can draw in the other eye. I haven't decided if I'm going to do that yet, but I'm enjoying thinking about what wish I might make.
What do you think? Should I leave it eyeless? Or attempt to add the eyes?
