Eye know

So I had to purchase more lolly sticks; Bertie's going through them like... Well, like me with a packet of Jaffa Cakes, actually. But let's not dwell on that. And my "bright idea" from the last blog entry just wouldn't quite leave me alone. I am weak in the presence of a silly idea.

It turns out that
a. They're not self-adhesive (soon remedied)
b. Some of them have rather luscious eyelashes. Oh. Oh.

Yes, I know Little Victor isn't pink but burgundy (it's just a really awkward colour to photograph, so I'm told), but this just had to happen:

Mesdames et Messieurs! I give you Victoria!

Ooh, la la. Giving us those workbench eyes, you minx...

Either El Presidente will laugh, or he'll kill me. Or he may laugh whilst killing me. Should I survive, I ought to probably seek some sort of treatment. Or else suggestions on what other tools are begging for anthropomorphication; plenty more eyes to go round. And round...


  1. Ah, Jaffa Cakes. I used to be hooked on them - wasn't happy 'till the packet was finished. In fact I ate so many that I can't face them any more.

    I reckon Rob will love Victoria - she's so cute....

    Cheers ;-)

  2. If you put them on your wooden Jack planes could you sell them as Jenny planes?
    Instant price hike.

  3. I have a victor plane and love it. Yours looks like it needs three others to complete the set. Of course you would have to paint them blue, yellow and green respectively and then you would have a complete set of Ms. PacMan planes! Now wouldn't that be unique?

  4. Not exactly the type of customisation we're used to seeing... :)

    Perhaps there is precedent, much like the oculari on boats ... the apotropaic effects should only enhance the plane's performance...

    Cheers -
