Moulage class was yesterday and the kids were fully engaged. Our teacher, Eric Singdahlsen, covered a huge amount of information in two hours. Riffing off moulage you could easily delve into medicine and biology, artistic vision and technique, acting, chemistry, politics, the DEA, military training, realism, and basic makeup applications. It was fascinating and funny and everyone seemed to have a great time. The kids learned how to simulate shock, bruising with black eyes, coughing up blood, lacerations, and burns with blistering. Among the various tools shown were containers of fat chunks, coagulated blood, minty flavored blood, blood in different viscosities, and something called derma-crisp. Thank you, Eric, for being such a funny and skilled teacher and for giving us the afternoon.

Cool weather with lots of rain makes huge mushrooms. I caught our new neighbor walking down the street with this specimen, yesterday. He's a geeky science person and so is his wife. We are so happy they've moved into Jake's old house. I gave them all five of our eggs from the day. She was worried to take them, "Is it okay to take all your eggs?" I smiled and reminded her there would be five more today.
