Valentine's Day Sock Monkey with Synthesizer
You might recall that my gal Zenbecca created this collage and custom calendar back in 2009. Well, she was at her crafty best again - this time making me this retro sock monkey for Valentine's Day. And I just had to post it (technically, it is retro, and it's holding a synthesizer. :o)
And, I have to say, except for the lack of hair on the monkey, this pretty much is a spitting image.
The monkey is sporting my four favorite collectibles. All of which I am usually sporting every day as well.
Synthesizer - check.
Tie - check.
Digital calculator watch - check.
Pocket protector - check.
The synthesizer in the monkey's hands doesn't seem to be modeled after any specific synthesizer. But I kinda like the surreal-ness of it.
And, I'm a big fan of pocket protectors. I wear one to work every day, and my collection has grown such that I can now wear one to work every day for over five months without repeats.
But, I do have my favorites.
