For each day in 2010 (give or take) I’ll be showing a picture from somewhere in my life with a little explanation as to what it is. Enjoy the trip down memory lane. (CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE ARCHIVES!)

Description: The story of Kreepy Monkey started innocently enough. Roommate Bryan had this stuffed monkey that he kept that was just a little off – the eyes were spaced too far apart, the mouth permanently frozen in an askew smirk. He freaked out an awful lot of people. So Bryan and I would place him in very specific areas in the house to catch each other off guard: in the background of the bathroom so he was visible when looking in the mirror, rooting around in the knife drawer, in someone’s undies. As the semester grew older, we got more elaborate with our Kreepy Monkey poses. This one seen here was one of Bryan’s more elaborate ones, which was simultaneously frightening and brilliant. The story of Kreepy Monkey would ultimately involve cloning, international travel and acclaim, and even death threats. I assure you, this is not the last you’ve seen of Kreepy Monkey.
