So yesterday I went on a bike ride, intending to go to Target and get this dress. However, on the way, I rode over some metal shard shed by a passing car. My tire was lacerated and went flat in about 2 seconds.
Which meant a quick trip to the bike store for new PUNCTURE RESISTANT tires. I believe they're called "armadillos," but I was too bummed to really pay attention.
Why so bummed? On the drive to the bike store, I noticed that my Mermaid had a HUGE mistake about three inches from the beginning of the body. And yeah, since the last photos I had done a lot more. The body was kinda like half way done.
Now it's about 3 inches done.
On a nicer note, this article was in the NYT online today:
