I'd been wanting to make a spaghetti god out of pipe cleaners for a while, and I finally did. On Halloween I was a pirate with this guy on my shoulder:
He has since retired to a position of workplace mascot at my college Writing Center.
And now I just made another one to put up on eBay
, and spread the joy. They're not hard to make, but it takes a while. Totally worth it, though!
