Misty has taken up crocheting, because she collects crafting habits the way I pick up hobbies. She’s been making various amigurumi animals and such, which is how Eli and Liza ended up with a ladybug and an alien. Now I’ve gotten one!
Meet the Adipose. This little guy is an alien baby made up of fat cells. He showed up in a Doctor Who episode. Anything that cute-but-disgusting is just begging to be turned into a toy via a Japanese artform, right?
Look at that guy! He’s so full of joy de vivre and stuffing! Right now he lives on my desk at work, where he can creep out my co-workers, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep him. Certain other people in our household have been begging to know if they can have “fat baby”.
