It's March, so I'm finally getting around to finishing up Kerry's birthday presents from November. This screen-print (above left) I bought for her in the fall because she laughed hard after seeing it at the Cream Gallery's Love 2005 exhibit last Valentine's Day. It's called Always Swim With A Buddy, by Daryl Vocat – and the print and frame (added just this past weekend) measure about three feet square. Kerry likes laughing at underpants, namely a scene in The Royal Tenenbaums with a framed sketch of tighty-whities on the wall – and scenes in Spongebob Squarepants where he's walking around in his skivvies. It's our centrepiece now, right above the puffy red couch.
This salmon-coloured critter (above right) isn't a birthday present, just a total impulse buy. I remember seeing these UglyDolls on the net once, and promptly forgot about them – until we saw this thing in a shop-window in Osborne Village after drinks with co-workers Friday night. Maybe it was the booze, but we now have the fortune of sleeping with it nightly. Nah, we like it ("It's got thumbs", Kerry giggles).
