Merkin world

I’m going to Bali on the weekend. If you know me in real life, you’ll find that statement hilarious because I hate summer, the beach, flimsy clothes, humidity and sweating. I love boots and jackets and opaque tights. It’s for SuperCat’s hens (I don’t know where the apostrophe goes there – is she the hen or are we the hens?), which of course requires something stupid. So I made merkins.

  1. This post totally lifted my mornings mood to amused. My children thank you.

  2. Reckon that the choice of titles adds something to an already exceptional project…

  3. haaaahhhhhhh haaaaaaahhhhhhhh, The merkinosaurus is my favourite and Franks too!

    • SuperCat said she hopes I get stopped at customs just so they can pull them out of my bag. Me too. I’m going to try to look a little bit suspicious on my way through.

      • You should wear one on your face like a beard and maybe customs will mistake you for Muslim and ‘racially profile’ you.

        Also wear one in it’s correct spot in case they strip search you!!!

      If you come home I will make you a million of them.

      • It’s true, Carol. She will. I’ll teach her how to make these highly technical merkins. Should take about seven minutes, including laugh breaks. (Hey McDonkey, nice name change.)

    It’s made a few of my friends on FB happy this morning…

  5. They look fabulous. But I’m surprised there’s no map of Tasmania in the bunch. 🙂

  6. they look fantastic but dare I ask – how’s that thesis of yours coming along?!?!?!

  7. I supplicate myself at your feet (originally typed ‘feat’, which also is appropriate).

  8. I was about to write that I’d like to see a “period merkin”, then I realised how that conveyed a horrifically different meaning from the one I intended. I was thinking of Clare Higgins in “Stage Beauty” yelling “And give me back my merkin!” at Billy Crudup, and thinking a 17th Century merkin would be fab.
