Creepy little buggers

Tonight I was making yogurt pancakes to treat the kids and mommies at tomorrow's playgroup. I thought I would add a little extra nutrition by making raisin smiley faces on some of them.
Immediately they reminded me of the kodama (tree spirits) from Princess Mononoke, especially when they were all piled up on the plate, and I was creeped out.
Do you see the similarity, or have I lost too much sleep lately?



Oh, and another thing that made me think I was going slowly insane was this...
if you go to the For Better Or For Worse main homepage (the only way I get to read it here), the strips are animated... not like cartoon animated, but the people blink... I thought I was seeing things until I read the small notice on the bottom of the page...

Errr...they did turn out just a bit creepy. But kids won't care: it's smiley faces that win out every time!

I wouldn't worry until they wobble their heads and make that clicky-popping sound.

Funny pics!

Yup. I do see the resemblance. How funny. I love For Better or Worse, but the version I read (via e-mail) is static. The blinking sounds so strange I just have to see it.
