So the evacuation of two whole rooms is currently underway, so we can be absolutely certain we'll kill all the bed bugs. We don't want to do a half-hearted effort only to find that we weren't thorough enough, and we have to do the whole thing again, properly!
While I was packing Sonny Ma-Jiminy's room up, I found last winter's pyjamas there waiting for cooler weather. And while I found them cute last winter, this year I'm shocked and horrified:Yep folks, Bed Bugs. What was I thinking? Well to be honest, last year I knew precious little about bed bugs. I had no idea how easy they were to get if you travel or camp, I had no idea what desecration they can wreak on your skin and I had no idea how difficult they were to get rid of. I wouldn't have thought they're cutesy-wootsie buggy-wuggies that belong on kids' pyjamas, but I guess I thought there were benign little things that could be dealt with using a can of Baygon.
I realised a scary thing. Somewhere out there, there must be a bunch of Kids Fashion Designers sitting around a table throwing around ideas for cool designs for Size 3 Boys pyjamas. Someone hazards, "What about parasites? We haven't done them since the Summer of '84." And amazingly, everyone nods and agrees. "Awesome idea: parasites! I like your thinking!"
So I've decided to join the madness and help them with their next range of pyjamas.
Now this is where my leet computing skillz fall down in a sad sorry heap. I can't use Photoshop. I'm hopeless. This is strange, when I can use Adobe Premiere Pro to edit videos and I'm familiar with using layers from making pretty pictures in Ultra Fractal 4. However, I've never learned how to use Photoshop, so I'm a complete dummy from here in. I've managed to navigate my way around a few basic functions to make some designs in my own "Vermin Sleepwear" range, but as you will see, they're pretty miserable attempts at being clever.
The challenge is on! Are there any Leet Photoshoppers out there among you Lovely Lurkers (all 9 of you!) who could make a much better looking item in the Vermin Sleepwear range? Contact me through "Comments", and we'll go from there!
