IF - Pet Peeves

One of my pet peeves - one that I am also very guilty of - is when people say "thingie" or some other nonsensical word to ask where something is. Like "honey where's the thingie that opens the thing?!"

The thingie is a multi-tool made up of mostly kitchen type items. It measures, cuts, opens both bottles and cans. The thingie is a beater, flipper, timer, temperature gauge, and your house keys all rolled into one. It's simply incredible.. now if you could only remember where you used it last.

IF - Leap

When I think about the word leap, and leaping, I think of the Mario Brothers. Those heroic plumbers specialized in leaping, and giant coin collecting. With that in mind, I illustrated the cartridge of my most favorite Mario game never made "Pickle Mario Bros." It was basically Super Mario, but instead of mushrooms and coins, Mario collected pickles and pickle slices.

Now if you are currently singing the Mario music in your head (or out loud), you're welcome. Don't worry it should stop in about a week or two.
