June 20 2008

I just can't take anymore Metal Gear Solid right now, so I took a handful of pictures just to catalog some of the smaller details.

Wallet got a few hours of sun. I brought it inside soon after this picture was taken. Might give it a few more hours soon.

Leather patch taken indoors with flash. Started treating with Obenauf's Heavy Duty Leather Preservative; some beeswax goop I picked up with the wallet. Smells like piss. Sorry, TMI.

ใ™ใงใ。 I intended to write in the date of each consecutive wash with a marker, but I noticed it washed out easily and/or stopped keeping track. 23 is still there. Note to self: track down a pair of SLB23s.

I'll end this post with what was supposed to be a depiction of the intense vertical fading down both legs. It really didn't come out at all. Maybe a bit.

Alright! Back to Snake Eater. Tatyana is a doublecrossing bitch! SPOILERS!!!

June 16 2008 -- 9.5 months -- 290 days

Pictures taken June 16th, at 9.5 months.

These are fresh out of the washing machine for the fourth time; still damp. Doesn't seem like much of a difference compared to last month! Regardless, the fit needed to be reset, and an incident involving caramel prompted another trip to the laundry closet.

Flat combs. I lightly starched the jeans out of the dryer this time around because they've become as soft as a fabric softener sheet.

A new challenger appears...

Skull Jeans by An Alchemist mid-length medallion wallet. Still needs to be rubbed with goop and tanned.
