What kind of tape is best for creating a sculpture?

masking tape I think because it is easily drawn on so when you need to draw like eyes or leaves or something you would actually be able to. that and packing tape is ugly. I think accentuating the masking tape with duct tape would be awesome though. you know for the longest time i thought duct tape was called duck tape...

What would you wear for camouflage if you were hiding in a gingerbread house?

A gingerbread suit obviously

Oscillate my metallic sonatas with your plan for the Panama canal:

Oscillate my metallic sonatas with your plan for the Panama canal!?!?!?!?!?!?

wtf mate!? i dont even know what that means!

okay break it down.

oscillate means to like rotate back and forth in a circlar fasion? right?
metallic would be made of metal. or considering the next word is sonatas and the only thing i can relate sonata to is beethoven's moonlight sonata (which is music) metallic may refer to like heavy metal music.

where the eff s the panama canal? is there a current problem with it? what plans should i have for it? thats like a river right?

okay vibrate your metal songs with my plans for a giant man made river somewhere?

that makes no sense!!!

i think blogger is jst trying to trick me. im going to ignore the whole first part of that sentance and change it to: tell me about your plans for the panama canal.

i have no plans for the panama canal. hold on let me google it.

Panama Canal

waterway across the Isthmus of Panama, connecting the Atlantic (by way of the Caribbean Sea) and Pacific oceans, built by the United States (1904—14) on territory leased from the republic of Panama. The canal, running S and SE from Limón Bay at Colón on the Atlantic to the Bay of Panama at Balboa on the Pacific, is 40 mi (64 km) long from shore to shore and 51 mi (82 km) long between channel entrances. The Pacific terminus is 27 mi (43 km) east of the Caribbean terminus. The minimum depth is 41 ft (12.5 m).
From Limón Bay a ship is raised by Gatún Locks (a set of three) to an elevation 85 ft (25.9 m) above sea level, traverses Gatún Lake, then crosses the Continental Divide through Gaillard (formerly Culebra) Cut and is lowered by Pedro Miguel Lock to Miraflores Lake and then by the Miraflores Locks (a set of two) to sea level. The average tidal range on the Atlantic side is less than a foot (.3 m); that on the Pacific side is 12.6 ft (3.8 m).

ok, it doesnt say anything about a problem, so im going to assume there isnt one. the only thing i can see that this is lacking is a bridge. you'd think if there was a bridge that would be mentioned. no better yet one of those under water car tunnel things like they have in the english channel!!! yes.. that is definitely my plan. maybe an oscillating tunnel made of metal. the oscillating would cause some wicked waves so you could like surf or whatever, and metal is sturdy.... but also rusts so maybe thats not such a hot idea. im going to vote glass on this one. if it was made out of glass you could watch the surfers above you as you drive. yep thats definitely my plans for the panama canal.

You have to dig a hole to China. Where do you start?

Clearly you would start outside of the china border. this would be a small short easy to dig hole. ugh this one was way too obvious.

You've successfully slain the dragon! How will you toast your marshmallows?

wow! this question poses so many problems. first of all if i had a marshmellow to be toasted why wouldn't i make the dragon bow down and toast the marshmellow before killing him? i think this was HARDLY a successful slaying of a dragon. second of all, what makes it succesful? i'm a vegetarian so i don't believe in killing animals. that poor dragon probably didnt do anything to deserve such a harsh punishment. thirdly, being a vegetarian i dont eat marshmellows so what is the purpose of even toasting the marshmellow? they have gelatin which is made form dead animals, eww. althoug i suppose if i had slain a dragon, i dont care too much about the genocidic slaying of innocent animals, so the gelatin thing wouldnt bother me.

ok, after "successfully" murdering a dragon, how would i toast a marshmellow?
this one is so freaking easy. meagan and i were almost in this exact same situation once. what you do is grab some logs, put them in the fire pit. take a full box of matches and scraps of paper from your purse. lighting the paper then placing them under the logs will cause the bark on the logs to burn. this causes smoke which makes people (particularly boys) walk over to your campsite, or dragon slaying grounds or whatever. the boys will see that you are just a helpless young girl who doesnt even know how to start a fire and they will bring you back a truck full of wood, boys and weiner sticks, or marshmellow sticks. they will build your fire for you (chopping the wood, finding sticks, lighting it, etc) AND cook the marshmellow for you!

Random Question # 1: You forgot your mom's birthday! what can you make out of super glue and olive pits?

wow, that first sentance and that question seem totally unrelated. its like blogger is trying to confuse me. hey you forgot your moms birthday! and then you think "omg?!? when was my mom's birthday!" and then BAM! "quick what can you make out of super glue and olive pits?" your so distracted about the mom thing you cant think clearly about how talented you are at olive pit art.

ok i think the answer to this is obvious. cover and olive pit in glue, stick it up you nose. go to the hospital and when they put you in the damn waiting room for 45 hours grab your mom a nice birthday present, a magazine, a face mask, one of those banana shaped things old people pee into, a scalpel, you know, the useful crap that you would want if roles were reversed.... oh man those slippers that the doctors wear. those are sweet. OR ditch the waiting room and go steal some flowers. people in hospitals get flowers all of the time! if you took one flower from every vase in there no one would even notice and you would have yourself a pretty sweet bouquet of flowers!

another option would be to do the olive pit glued up the nose thing again but this time, stick it so far up that they have to amputate. then your mom will come andvisit you in the hospital and bring YOU flowers. she will be so worried about you and your current mental state that she won't even notice you forgot her birthday.
