I made over some built-in bookcases a few days ago (I'll share pictures later) and really, really, REALLY wanted to put a brain in a jar on it. Not a real brain, mind you. That would be gross ... and may require me to murder and dissect someone.
Instead, I crocheted one.
I'm not sure why exactly I wanted a tiny brain in a jar (Grover would probably say one of my other multiple personalities told me I needed it), but something did.
I made a gray one first.
And then everybody was all, "Dat look nuttin' like a brain, yo."
Except not exactly like that, because they aren't gangsters and have all their teeth.
So then I made a pink one.
I didn't really like that one either, so I asked my FB friends what color they think of when they think of brains. The responses were quite varied. Pink, gray, pinkish gray (thanks, Susie :), purple, green, oatmeal (mmmmm ... ), et cetera.
I like thegray one better. The pink one doesn't look very brainy to me; the swirls aren't right, I think. But maybe the color makes up for that.
What do you think?
If nothing else, you can perch in upon your noggin and point to it.
Like a boss.
