Mystery Letter?!

We were going to post our normal Gossamer 365 pics, but instead we have to show everyone this:

feb17pic49

We found this letter on our door. We’re pretty sure it’s from the mysterious green monster… mostly because of this picture:

watching gossy

We can see his mean little head peaking from behind the curtain. Unfortunately, we could not translate the letter so we sent it to a contact in North Carolina for translation. This contact will have a full translation tomorrow.

This is what the untranslated version says:

Gossamer

RAWR! RAWR
RAAAWR.. RARAWR!
Arg! Arg! Rawr! Rawr
Raaaa… Raarrww?
Rawr. Grrr [something crossed out] Rawr!
Raaaaaawr! RawR
RAWR! RAWR!

– F (RAWR!)

It could mean anything at this point!! Gossamer’s body guard is keeping an eye out and we’ve taken all precautions to make sure Gossy and GJ are safe. Our site’s 2 year birthday is tomorrow! We hope the green monster doesn’t do anything to ruin it!

Well, lets hope for the best…

Meh, Who Needs Updates?

While our project is perfectly on schedule… our blogging isn’t. Oh well, here’s what all 2 of you who actually read our blog have been waiting for; the rest of the January pictures.

Day 25
Day 25: Hired Help
Gossy is scared. This green monster has been stalking us for so long. Gossamer decided to get some guard dogs… just in case.

Day 26
Day 26: Sea Turtle Sundae
What’s the best treatment for a stressful day? Ice Cream!! We got the Sea Turtle Sundae and Joe’s Crab Shack. Goooood stuff!

Day 27
Day 27: Sweet
Gossy has in his hands a copy of Edible Austin that was released last year. In it has a picture of a cupcake we designed. We have been searching high and low for it and we finally found it!!

Day 28
Day 28: New BFF
Gossy’s Guard dog is soooo cute!!

Day 29
Day 29: He's back...
The green monster returns… Gossamer was just talking with his friend Tally when I snapped this picture. By the time I got up, the creature was gone. What does it want?!

Day 30
Day 30: Tea Time
Nothing better to calm the nerves than boiling hot tea.

Day 31
Day 31: Books. Books. Books.
We got a butt load of new books… WE ARE SO GIDDY!!

7 Days Down!

The first 7 days down, 358 more to go! The last few days have been all about crashing at bookstores and cafe for our internet fix. Gossy has been coming down with a cold so GJ has been coming along with me. No worries though, Gossy will be better soon. I think the stress of the little green monster stalker and moving from our apartment has gotten the poor guy stressed out!! Whenever Gossamer catches of green fur, he starts freaking out!! The poor thing…

Well for now, all we can do is continue our project so here are Days 5 – 7.

Day 5
Day 5: Half-Priced Books
We’ve mentioned Half-Priced Books many times before and it still remains our favorite book store. We just love the smell of books that are really, really cheap.

Day 6
Day 6: At La Madeleine
Gossy and I have a writing group meet-up at the La Madeleine. Since Gossy is still feeling ill, GJ was with me. We arrived early to waste time looking up random facts that no one cares about… and watch YouTube. Lots and lots of YouTube.

Day 7
Day 7: Barnes & Nobles Today
It’s cold outside so GJ and I kept warm at Barnes & Nobles… where they just happen to have free WiFi. Yay for the little things that makes us happy!

Well that’s it for now! Toodles!

First Contact

It has been a while since we have updated and for good reason. Gossamer was telling the truth. A green monster has been following him around. We have been desperately trying to track him down and get photo evidence. With much patience we were able to get the pictures below. Just click them to get a better look.

First we have a picture of some strange green thing with horns hiding. We placed a pumpkin pie to see if we can get him to appear.

Strange Creature

The plan works but we are still not able to get a clear shot of the little green thing.

Hungry Strange Creature

Next, Gossamer and I went to Fredericksburg, Texas for funsies. To our horror, we spotted the same green fur with horns.

Green Monster Sighting on Christmas Tree

We are still not sure who are what it is. There is also another problem. Gossamer was suppose to go on vacation to the Grand Canyon with a friend of his but was pushed out of his bag and tied up!!! Gossy says it was the green monster who did it. Poor Gossamer was left lost and crying for days before I was able to find him. I’m currently contacting those in charge of the trip to see what has happened. Little green monster, I will find you!

Taking a Break

During this month Gossamer and I will be working on Nanowrimo! If you are unfamiliar with it just out their website http://nanowrimo.org. It is National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel before the month ends. The only prize is the self satisfaction that you wrote a 50,000 word novel and lived to edit it the following month. We are a bit behind but catching up. It has defiantly been an interesting project and it has seriously driven us insane. I do not remember a time in our lives where we depended so much on caffeine.

In other news, our first attempt at the Gossamer 365 project did not do so well. (We have a weird love affair with insane projects.) It’s ok though, we want to try again but we are going to wait until January 1st. Also, with the new year coming, a lot of things will be changing. For one, Gossamer and family will be moving! Yup, we will be changing homes once again. We are still in the process of finding a new place, which is never fun. We are hoping to find something in the same general area. What we really want is to move to South Austin, but there is no way a heart-shaped monster can afford the apartments and studios there. We will continue to look though. We are also keeping our mind open to other options.

We also have been considering actually getting a real domain name for the site. We want to get on for the site’s two year birthday. We may even go as far as putting up a donation link to help with the funds. We know it the chances of someone donating to us just to get a domain name is one in a million, but it never hurts to try.

On a really serious note, Gossamer has been claiming to see a green creature stalking him. Neither GJ or I have seen it, but Gossamer says he saw something. He tells us it’s REALLY mean looking, fluffy, and has 3 horns. We are trying to get photographic evidence of this stalker. We will keep you up to date as the story progresses.

For funsies, here’s a picture of a pumpkin trying to eat gossamer:
Day 205: BAD HENRY!

Take Care!

Thrill the World GJ!

On October 24, GJ and I went to Seaholm Power Plant to be part of Thrill The World! It’s a world wide event where everyone dances to Michael Jackson’s Thriller at the same exact time. (We’re part of a world record!!) After the event we all had a Michael Jackson dance party.

GJ Taking Dance Lessons:
Thrill The World 2009 - Austin, Texas

Watch out!!!
Thrill The World 2009 - GJ is done for

Poor lil’ GJ almost got bit a few times, but he managed to survive without catching any zombie viruses. I did make him take a bath in Purell after the event though… Luckily, all his anti-zombie shots are up to date!

We forget stuff, but still very much loved.

We forgot another day of our year long Gossamer 365 project. We also keep forgetting to upload the photos. Today, we were DETERMINED to upload all our new pictures to Flickr and post some of them here. Unfortunately, we left our camera at work.

Yes, we are bubble brains.

Despite the fact we can’t remember anything, we are still very much loved. We have new fan art by Melody! (Thank you!)

Gossamer's Travels

To see the picture better, just click on it.

In other news, we got our new passports!!

Day 178: Passport to the Future

We mentioned before that we made plans to go to London, England for a study abroad program. Those plans changed a bit. We thought the course was British Literature but turned out to be Intro To Drama. Drama is not something we are really into anymore. (Long story.) Luckily, the trip to Yucatan, Mexico is exactly the type of adventure we would like. Plus it’s cheaper and that makes us giddy-extreme.

Last but not least, we’re trying to make SOME changes to the website. We’re getting bored with it and want to try something different. We’ll post any updates when (and if) they come.

Just for the heck of it, here’s a random Gossamer 365 picture just because it’s cute. It’s Day 137, and it is of Gossy and with his favorite summer treat!
