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…

7 Days of February

Here are the first pictures for February. We only have 327 more days until the insane project is done…

Day 32
Day 32: A Cold Night
It’s so freaking cold lately! We miss the hot Texas weather… We want to be outdoors in the sun!!

Day 33
Day 33: A Cold One
We went out to dinner at Logan’s roadhouse. We’re not huge on the steakhouse scene but Gossamer’s grandpapa LOVES it.

Day 34
Day 34: Soup For the Sick
Some of us have not been feeling well (stupid weather…) so we made a huge pot of stew. Mmm… looks good. We bet it smells good but all our noses are stuffed up…

Day 35
Day 35: Poetry
Our friend Grant wrote us a poem! Check it by clicking the picture or read this post

Day 36
Day 36: Let It Rock
Let it Rock! Let it Rock! Let it Rock!

Day 37
Day 37: My Little Insomniac
Who needs sleep when you can sit out all night watching the stars?

Day 38
Day 38: CHEESE!!!
We were at the Alamo Draft House and had CHEESE!!! We went to see Edge of Darkness (it was meh…) but the real entertainment was the pre-show. Playing in the background is some crazy-weird kung-fu movie.

We also have updated our FAQ! Check it out and ask questions!

Toodles!

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!!

Our Life Is Average… Sometimes

Our insane project continues with days 16 to 24!

Day 16

Day 16: Any Advice?

I started freaking out that I couldn’t get oil paint off my hands. Gossy told me to rub olive oil and salt on my hands then wash off with hot water. Afterward, wash hands with soap to remove the oil. Worked. like a charm!

Day 17

Day 17: Weirder Than Gossy

There are things out there even weirder than Gossy. This is a drawing given to us by Scott Sutton (FamileOfRee.com) at the Texas Book Festival last year. It’s seriously one of the cutest things we were ever given.

Day 18

Day 18: Lake Pflugerville

One of our favorite places in the world. 🙂

Day 19

Day 19: Research

Gossamer is so fed up with the scary, green monster that stalks him so decided to see if there was any info online. Sadly, we couldn’t find anything…

Day 20

Day 20: Just reading

Another average day, just reading. Gossy is such a bibliophile!

Day 21

Day 21: National Hugging Day

It was National Hugging Day!!! I hope you hugged your friends, family, and complete strangers!

Day 22

Day 22: Just, like, you know? Yea.... Totally.

It’s just an average week, not much to talk about or take pictures of. It happens.

Day 23

Day 23: One More Month Until...

I caught GJ looks at jewelry! It’s my birthday in exactly one month, I wonder what he’s getting me…

Day 24

Day 24: GJ is SO smart

GJ was just playing with my camera. We forgot to fix the time after Daylight Savings Day so some of the time stamps on our pictures were wrong. It’s all cool now 😉

So yea, boring week, we know. We’re just so busy working our tushies off trying to save for our Study Abroad trip to London, we haven’t had much time for real fun. Hopefully that will change soon or the first half of our 365 pictures a day project will be a bit lame.

Random Days for a Random Monster

Not much has been going on this week. We have been mostly focusing on settling in our new home. Luckily, we were able to go out and about and have some fun. We’re cool like that.

Day 12
Day 12: Fountain Fun
Tuesday was such a surprisingly nice day, we just HAD to spend it outside. Did you know tea, water fountains, and ignoring responsibilities are ingredients for a perfect day? Oh yes, it’s true.

Day 13
Day 13: WTF?
The green monster thing has defiantly followed us to our new home! (Click the picture for a better view) Gossy was just trying to make himself look nice for the day and then that thing appeared from behind the curtain. CREEPY!!!!!

Day 14
Day 14: Books Or Death
We have over 200 books… Organizing those after moving is not easy. Gossy got stuck on top of a tall pile…

Day 15
Day 15: ...blech...
Today was bleak. It started of a bit sunny but then quickly changed to Doom and Gloom. All we wanted to do was forget everything and crawl back into bed. Even heart-shaped monsters have bad days…

We’re not going to let a bit of bleakness stop us though! We have high hopes for the next few days, so Toodles for now!

New Home, New Adventures

We have moved out of our apartment. We are depressed but we now can focus on saving for our London trip. Only 5 more months and 1 day… not that we are counting or anything.

Until then, we shall continue with a ridiculously insane project of taking a picture everyday for a year.

Day 8
Day 8: Friends Say 'See Ya'
Our last group picture… for now. Gossy and Gj are in this picture with the folks we shared our apartment with. Tally (the Bunny in the pink shirt) came with us but Shay, (the other bunny) and Peace (the peace bear) went with my best friend Sara. She’s off starting a new life in college and we wish her the best. We wuv and you miss Sara, Tally, and Peace!!

Edit That little green monster sneaked into our apartment!!! He’s hiding in the back on the bed post. (Click the picture for a better look.) Ugh, that thing is really getting on our nerves. We might have to set up a trap for it soon.

Day 9
Day 9: Here We Are
Right now we’re just relaxing after a long day of working and moving. Gossy was lost in his thoughts thinking about the upcoming year.

Day 10
Day 10: Frost Tower
Frost Tower is just so freaking pretty… and best of all: SHINY!!

Day 11
Day 11: Late Night Snack
The past week has worn us all out. GJ comfort himself by indulging a night time snack of blackberries. Hmm… I wonder if anything bad could happen if he ate after midnight.

Ah well, Toodles!

G365 and No Internet

As of today, I no longer have the internet at my home. I won’t have it again until I move from my apartment. We will still continue our Gossamer 365 project, we just do not know when we’ll be able to update them on the site.

Anyways, here are Days 2-4 of our project.

Day 2
Day 2: The Road To Old Settlers Park
To relax, we decided to take a nice walk at Old Settler’s Park. When we got there we found a hidden trail and took that instead. Barbed wire would stop the average monster, but not Gossy!

Day 3
Day 3: The Dog Whisperer
I think Gossy can communicate with dogs… Either that or the dog is trying to figure what the heck Gossy is.

Day 4
Day 4: No Net
And here we are today; in a cafe. We will probably be here often until we have internet access at home again.

Well, that’s it for today! toodles
