    Default Doodab's tip of the day

    Never promise a child an origami dinosaur.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    An origami tyrannosaurus would be a doddle surely - one big fold for the head and a couple for the legs.

    I wouldn't promise the kid a stegasaurus though - That could get tricky.

    I hope this child is easily pleased - Paper dinosaurs aren't exactly the latest word in exciting special effects

    Take your cue from one of my favourite children's books, "The Little Prince"
    The Little Prince: Chapter 2

    Make a box. Tell said child that the velociraptor is safe inside the box, and under no circumstances must he open it.

    My son is blind so I could simply screw up the paper and tell him that all dinosaurs were round balls, just like screwed up paper. A bit like planes and busses in that respect. To him I am the king of Origami becuase I can make anything!
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!
