Thing 18 Make Origami

On the left; how it should be done. On the right; how it should look if you've made an utter balls of it, then ripped it a little and then just folded it out. I've always wanted to do this, and to be fair, I got all the way to the end, but the nice man who was showing us how to make our origami cranes got himself a little confused, and because of his misdirection, I fucked up. To be fair to the man, he was faced with Token Northy, The Canuck and me - basically three grown up children for whom even folding paper is a difficult task involving much whining and giving out.

Poor guy. He was hardly expecting three monkeys in the middle of the afternoon on a Saturday. He'd been working with actual kids all day. We were the last thing he needed...

It's a funny thing about Limerick. City has a terrible rep internationally, but when we decide to throw a bit of a party, we tend to do it very well. Heineken Cup Finals, Red Bull FlugTag, SkyFest and the ever popular RiverFest. The city was fairly transformed today. It's always good to see. The French Market was awesome. All over the town there were activities and events for fun, and Origami class was one of them. It's a nice addition to the city.

So it was to be origami cranes. Token Northy and The Canuck got stuck in, as they do, and I wasn't doing badly either. I did exactly as I was told, and I got close to the end and then our teacher says....

"Oh wait. I think I did it wrong".

No, you're fine. I'll just keep messing with it anyway.... rip.... oops. So The Canuck got his done. I made a mess. Token Northy got his done too, and then we promptly made origami crane porn. Because we're that childish. Anyone under the age of 18 must look away now...
