What if, instead of tropical fish tanks, you had a live video stream of a section of coral reef? Every time you “fed” the fish, it would be a button you clicked to donate to the reef’s protection. As more you “feed” the fish, you’re granted more access to other reefs. And nightvision cameras are included so you can see your wild pets at night too without disturbing them with harsh lighting.

Perfect for folks like me who love fish, but do not love cleaning tanks.

Anonymous asked:

Did you go to art school or are you more self taught? And I feel you on the lack of motivation...I haven't drawn in over a year now, but with your raw talent I'm sure you'll bounce back =) (also you have some of the most gorgeous snakes I've ever seen -swoon-)

Un-doodles Answer:

I was self taught up until college where I got some real training at MCAD, so thank you! 

And…. I don’t own any snakes… perhaps you saw a reblog? 

Character Questions?

Been feeling pretty down about my art lately, and I feel it’s because of the lack of sketching. I haven’t really HONESTLY kept a steady flow of sketches in my sketchbook since 2012. 

So, I think in order to spur me into action, I’ll start participating in World building Wednesday, and taking on questions about my characters, or heck, even ME if you’re curious! Be rude, be silly, maybe even a little dirty, I don’t care, just need something to kick start my creative juices. 

Heck, I might even participate in TMI Tuesday! That’d be funny. 

Anyways…. if y’all have questions about me, or my characters, or art, feel free to ask! This isn’t necessarily requests for art… I don’t exactly have the drive to draw whatever yet. I’m all the way back to drawing therapy art, which is….. Ben and Jamie…. but… blegh. 

So yeah! 

If you got a question, ask away. I don’t mind re-answering the same question ten times! So no feeling intimidated! 

Send to my ask box!

Dream (nightmare?) Friday, July 25th 2014

I woke up this morning slowly. I’d had a wicked dream. I got up and went downstairs to get my clean clothes, and passed my housemate whom asked me if I was up till 3 am. “No,” I replied. “I was in bed by midnight.” 
It was there that she informed me that I was talking in my sleep. It sounded like I was having a conversation with someone on the phone. She’d gotten up in the wee hours of the morning to use the bathroom when she heard me. She came to my door to see if the light was on, and they were off at the time.

"I was not awake, but I certainly had a wild dream…." 

It went like this.

I was living with my father, step mother, and two sisters. We were enjoying the evening, sitting in lawn chairs in the front garage. (We had an extra garage in the back yard, but that was for the boat and snowmobiles.) Dad was grilling, the girls were tanning, and step mom was cutting one of my sister’s hair or something. 

For some reason I was in the driver’s side of dad’s brand new Monte Carlo, fixing something that had to do with the wires… I’m the mechanic’s daughter, after all. (I guess)

Some background, my father was complaining about a guy that lived in the neighborhood that was an absolute MENACE. He said he was some kind of criminal, but the reports is, he’d somehow wire large fireworks to just explode in people’s yards. damaging cars and got knows what else. Not just go up and explode, no, just plain explode. They’d stay put. And explode. My father was always talking about killing this man. If there was one more explosion, he was surely going to shoot him. (in real life my father says things like these sometimes, and you can never really tell if he’s kidding, depending on the situation, but either way, you know there’s going to be a fight)

SO. This day, we’re relaxing, I can smell the grill, and the sun was out, it was a good day, but you could also smell the humidity in the air. It would rain tonight. 

That’s when we heard a deafening explosion. RIGHT down the street from us. I looked up in time to see what looked like a large mass the size of a beach ball come HURLING in our direction. It hit the windshield of the car and the water that came from it, knocked my sisters off their chairs/feet, as well as step mom and my dad. 

Dad shakes his head slowly and stands up, and gets his 30-30 shotgun off the shelf and loads it. He stars walking down the street to where a truck was parked. 

I watch in horror as the form of the crazy guy comes out carrying what looked like a .9 mil. 

He aims it at dad and starts walking. 

For some reason dad’s gun wont fire. He pulls the trigger several times, but nothing happens. They come to stand rather close to one another, and dad, who is inspecting his gun in a rage, gets off a shot. Sadly, he wasn’t actually aiming at the time and only manages to get the man in the leg. This only causes the man pain and pisses him off. He takes aim, and fires.

This is where I get up. 

I’m amazingly calm when these things happen in my dreams. Amazingly calm when I know. I’m going to kill someone. I told my sisters to tell me where the gun safe was and what the combo was. (in real life it seems to be in a different location every time I visit them) 

They lead me inside, and I can just FEEL the crazy guy getting closer to the house. 

We open the safe, and pick out our guns. I wasn’t too particular. I just grabbed a shotgun, loaded it and was ready before my sisters. I turned around and he was RIGHT there. RIGHT in front of me. The barrel of his gun between my eyes. I just stared into his eyes. they were bright brilliant blue. And from the place at my hip, I pulled the trigger, and remembering the center of his face was torn to shreds by the blast. 

Montage later… the media got a hold of it. “Young woman kills her father’s killer in home in front of sisters.” They took me in for interviews, for some reason I agreed and described the horror that happened that day. 

I was sitting on a chair… my leg draped over the arm rest as I slouched, watching my own interview on the tv. Watching the tears run down my face as I remembered those blue eyes. 

I remember watching this interview as it proceeded, and glanced up at the doorway to my right. 

And he was there. Standing RIGHT there. HIM. They guy I KILLED. Standing, and looking at me. I had no words! Just internal panic!! All I had on me was a knife! Bu the just watched me. Then looked at the tv, and invited himself in to sit in the chair to my left, and drape his elbow onto my leg as it was on the arm rest, and lean on it like nothing had ever happened! HE WAS DEAD. but he looked perfectly fine!! 

Again, I seem externally extremely calm about all of this. 

My current housemate suddenly walked in. I suppose she was going to help me move… but she could see him too! She looked at him, then at me. Her face definitely read, “DIDN’T YOU KILL THIS MAN??” 

and my eyes pleaded with her, “I THOUGHT I KILLED HIM.” 

I looked to him as he resumed watching the interview, and he leaned over to me, with a glance and said, “You did good…” 

Somehow in my dream I knew he was a ghost there to haunt me for the rest of my days I couldnt tell if he had ill intentions for me my mind was going through all kinds of horrible possibilities but the calm of that moment is what was so terrifying I felt trapped he had me where he wanted me somehow dream nightmare

THE ENCHANTED ROCK GARDEN 

6445 Lyndale Ave S, Richfield, MN 55423
(612) 866-1140

I don’t usually do reviews, but this place is my absolute favorite place to go when I’m home. The staff are extremely friendly, and really excited to teach you things about rocks and crystals. They can tell you where they came from, how they formed, what they mean in different cultures, and what they were used for, and so on. Really helpful! 

I think I MAYBE covered half the store in these photos. It really doesn’t do them justice. If I had the time, I’d build a light box and photograph some nicer specimens and help them make their website shine, but alas, I had to go home at SOME point. 

Their online presence is at best minimal, so if you want anything, sadly, you have to visit. I can tell you one thing, it’s a really nice attraction. I spend HOURS in this place. EVERYTHING is for sale. One of my favorite pieces, (which SADLY and STUPIDLY I neglected to photograph) is of a fossilized Ammonite Fossil that had opalized. But get this. The opal was DEEP RED. And it’s the size of a salad plate. 

Anyways. 

Upon walking in, it would probably feel like walking in to grandpa’s basement but the organization of this place is incredible. The stones are all carefully managed. There’s even a 50% off section in the very back. The staff are very friendly albeit shy, but also extremely helpful. 

I recommend this to anyone that is in the Minneapolis, MN area! 

I’d sign up to buy and ship things to folks who are interested, but I’m no longer there, haha!
