During the short breaks between long hours of writing, I find ways to amuse myself. I’m good at amusing myself. Or maybe I’m good at procrastinating. Or maybe they’re one in the same.
Sheri sent me a cute animation she made at the American Express website, starring Ellen Degeneres and Ricki the raccoon, in Paris.
The raccoon told me I should go to Paris. No, really.
You can make your own Ellen-and-friend animation here and you can make your animal say anything you want. Well, almost. I made one of Ellen and Shelley the tortoise, discussing coffee drinks at a cafe. Shelley was not allowed to say “cream” as in “whipped cream.” Hmm. I guess cream is a naughty word in animation-land. Go figure.
Yeah, yeah, back to work for me. Paris will have to wait a few more months.
