Can I interest you in this lovely paint?



I was one of nanila's Christmas presents from a very kind young man. You wouldn't think I came packed flat as a bunch of balsa wood cut-outs, would you? A thorough sanding, several coats of white spray paint and a couple of nice washes of this fine Golden Acrylic in Bone Black (ha!) have done wonders for my complexion. I recommend it.

Well, since the Santa Fairy is going to be visiting you quite late, she'll see what she can do!

Eeee! I had one of those once--the Triceratops! And then I found a T-Rex version, except fashioned from glow-in-the-dark plastic. If I get another one I might try stitching together some hide for him out of some flashy fabric.

Ooh, clever. According to the picture on the back, there is also a plesiosaurus. WANT.

That's excellent. I still remember making dioramas with my dinosaur models when I was about eight. Happy times.

It's just not possible to outgrow dinosaurs.

I hadn't thought about it but you are, of course, correct.

Excellent. Pup got a similar saber-tooth tiger for Christmas, but it had googly eyes included in the kit. WTF?

Yeah, googly eyes are inherently non-threatening, aren't they.

You're a very lucky girl. The only thing better would have been a t-rex in addition, to chase it around the table.

Now there's a great excuse for a trip to the science museum store!
