Introducing the Woggles

Okay so this might be a bit much… but this is a Woggle:

This one’s name is Friar, he’s the first one I found.

I found him in a fossilized egg, within a fallen asteroid found on the beach. (← video of when I found it)

It then hatched and ran a bit of havoc in my apartment, so I set up a security camera to catch it

It took forever to find, but when I finally did thinks got even weirder…

First off, it looked EXACTLY like something I’d crochet

Also I realized they will only move when nobody is watching, which is why it was so hard for me to find!

I then found out that they were somehow… lucky? I don’t really know how to explain it but they just knew things and things always worked out for them!

That’s when I realized I found an alien. I know that’s quite a step to make, but I explain it here. (← video)

Then… a few days later, it laid an egg

This meant that they must be asexual! Meaning they don’t need a male and a female to reproduce! It was super interesting.

When the egg hatched it came out like this:

I named this one Erdle.

Then I realized. They hatch to look like what’s around them! This must be why they look crocheted, because I have crocheted things everywhere, and I have yarn everywhere!

Also they matched the things that were around them, like my red carpet for Friar, and the blue and yellow socks for Erdle! Meaning they’re perfectly camouflaged in!

So then I went down to Souther California for the holidays and brought all the Woggles and eggs that I had down with me so they didn’t wreck havoc in my house without me there

And when I came back…

I must have missed an egg, because there were Woggles all over my room!

Now my apartment is filled with these aliens and I don’t know what to do with them all!

So I started an adoption site at

If you or anyone you know would be a good home for one, please reach out to me at [email protected]

We Built a Bench on the Beach – Not What I Usually Do

So my roommate and I started going to the beach everyday this year. We live right on the cost in San Francisco so it’s not really too difficult for us to do. The bench was built on July 31st 2016, and it looked like this:


We ended up adding things to it like a throne (pictured), a table (below) and another post for BYOH (bring your own hammock)

People seemed to really enjoy it. We made books for the bench titled “What’s important to you” and “What would you have done differently” for people kinda join in the fun. And it was pretty sturdy and well received. It ended up lasting for about 3 months until…

A storm came and did a real number on the bench. The sand rose to the benches seat and the ocean took away most of the materials.

So we rebuilt…

img_4803 img_4805

It’s definitely not as nice as the old one, but it’s a start…

img_1486There’s a lot still to do, but this time we know what were doing a lot more. The posts are buried about double their height above ground, keeping the center pieces “locked” in and unable to move. The bench bottom is resting on rock, (instead of wood like last time) to keep it a bit more steady as well. And we left a gap in the bottom so that the ocean can flow freely under, rather then bombarding it and slowly taking pieces away.

Here’s the plaque that Garrett (my roommate) and I made for the bench to try to share why it was built and what it means to us..

How to Crochet: a Pac-Man Ghost
