Working from home

I get to work from home two days a week, which is generally awesome. Here's a picture of the view from my desk on a standard work-from-home day. The short person standing on the other side of the door saying "mamamammamamamamamamamamama" all day is pretty standard too.

I bet you $17

You will never guess what this is and how it came to be.

Sure, it's pretty, in a funny, 5th-grade-art-project kind of way.

Sure, you too could hold one in the palm of your hand - if you had a kid with an upper respiratory infection and a firm belief that herbal remedies are much more worthwhile than a trip to the germ-infested doctor's office. And a very disorganized kitchen.

Getting warmer? I bet you $17 you still don't know what it is.

(Anyone else have a found art project, or kids+chaostheory=butterfly-flaps-its-wings-and-creates-cute-nonsense-in-brooklyn kind of thing they'd like to share?)
