Just finished my last cover letter for the evening. What do you think? I was worried that writing so late, and with a few beers, would impair my writing ability BUT it seems just fine.
I am writing to inquire about the open position for an assistant administrator to a sith lord. I believe you will find my skill set to make me a unique candidate for this intriguing opportunity. I see that the position is listed on board a space station which I find appealing since I am looking to travel and meet other life forms.
The listing specified a comfort with cloning. As a scientist who worked with bacterial transformants I am certainly qualified in this matter. My laboratory training has also taught me to be especially mindful of minutia so I will be excellent at task management and will take meticulous care of agendas/timelines. I have taken basic anatomy, organic chemistry and chemical engineering courses which will provide me with the needed background for the “medical maintenance” portion listed under desired skills.
In closing I attach my declaration of loyalty to the empire and medical waiver though I can’t see how suffocation would be a problem. As a further example of my dedication to the empire and mechanical/biological skills I enclose photos of a biologically engineered all terrain armored transport. Who says the empire can’t go a little green and reduce rising fuel costs? This is just one of the many novel ideas you can expect from me as an administrative assistant! The plans for the empire’s AT-AT were transmitted to me by a Bonnie Burton from a small astromech droid.
I look forward to working with you soon,
The Star Wars Craft Book – Bonnie Burton
This star wars AT-AT planter box brought to you by Bonnie Burton, duct tape and bits and bobs lying around my apartment.
And now for something completely different. I started getting crafty lately, probably because of the influence of one Miss Bonnie Burton. While I have every intention of cracking her most recent book, I really want the AT-AT planter for my herb garden, I had this other project in the back of my head to do. I always have “oh wouldn’t that be cool” ideas that I never follow through on, don’t we all? Well the weather has been unusually rainy for California in June and I was in bed this morning, thinking about things I never follow through on. I imagined a desolate graveyard full of the spirits of those ideas who never get to live. It made me sad and it made me motivated. I hopped out of bed and grabbed my dog to take him on his morning walk. Just as I was beginning to falter and wanted to head to starbucks where I knew I’d sit around wasting time all morning playing with my new phone, I saw a stop sign that had been graffitied to say “Stop Procrastinating.”
I came home, sat down at the table and a few hours later this was the result: Wonder Woman Shadowbox. I had been intending to make this for the last few months; basically once the wonder woman makeup line by M.A.C. came out. I used some old comics, obviously NOT mint condition or rare editions, and cut out a variety of images which I then decoupaged on a box I got for $1 from the nearby thrift store. Inside are some more images I arranged as a background along with three lipstick boxes glued together (you need three to “complete the scene” on the packaging) and part of the box for my eyeshadow at the top. I tried to create three levels of depth but the top bit got squished. In any even I’m please with the outcome since it’s the first shadowbox I’ve made, and my first creative endeavor outside of the kitchen in years. I can’t wait to share some future Star Wars crafts in the coming weeks! Read more
