June 9th ’10: “007″ died! He didn’t rebound as expected … and won’t be back sadly. He has gone the way of Sabotanyoki and lives on as a cactus head.
May 1st ’10: “007” still remains to stay alive. He’s not doing so good, but I think he will rebound. Watch him and Sabotanyoki in the soon to be released “Half a Quartet of Soil“.
February 10th ’10: “oo7” is still alive. He’s had a few close shaves with scissors, but seems to be still not dead. Watch for him and Sabotanyoki in the upcoming “Unkillable to Death“.
October 26th ’09: “007″ continues to grow hair. Don’t miss him and Sabotanyoki in “ Place Matters“!
October 13th ’09: “007″ is still doing fine. Watch out for him and Sabotanyoki in ” Out of Remote Control“.
September 23rd ’09: “007” is doing fine. He’ll next appear in “Origami My Mine“.
September 18th ’09: “007” is growing hair like nobody’s business! He’s back in “Tomato Soup or Die!“
September 14th ’09: “007” is doing fine and is as fast out of the start as Nyoki was!
September 10th ’09: “007” is back in “Rogaine, No Pain“!
September ’09: This is “007“. I figure “007” never dies, so hopefully this won’t either. We shall find out.
Sabotanyoki will appear periodically … or appeariodically be around.
Nyoki’s Brain will be given a decent burial.
I call things I chuck in the garbage “a decent burial”.
Below this line is from the time when Nyoki lived … well!

This is Nyoki.
He cost about $8 and doesn’t take up much room. He will be my friend … if he can grow grass, that I’ll pretend is hair, from his cute little noggin.
I’ve doused him with water and will wait.
Nyoki died on August 11th 2009. I’m not sure what the cause of death was … but possibly it was just his time. He was a good friend who just ran out of seed or something.
What do you do with a friend who dies? … transplant a new brain into their skull and see what happens!
This is Sabotanyoki! I sense haircuts will not be so frequent from now on. (“sabotan” is Japanese for cactus)
I’ll keep Nyoki‘s brain for a while, under super hightech conditions, to see if he revives, but don’t hold your breath.

Nyoki has proved to be the best of the experiments. I was going to cut his grass, that I’m pretending is hair, but he said chicks dig his “fro”. I’m not sure what that means: as long as I don’t have to start forking out money for hair gel.
June 17th, 2009
Nyoki is still growing grass that I’m pretending is hair. He was getting a bit uncomfortable with the hot weather, so I’ve given him another haircut. A little shorter and hopefully cooler for him.
May 19th, 2009
Nyoki is growing grass, which I am pretending is hair, quite nicely. I gave him his first haircut last night. It’s probably a bit cooler for him now that the nice weather has arrived. I may give him a crewcut next time.
May 5th, 2009
I came back after a week holiday and Nyoki is as grassy … that I’m pretending is hairy … as a proverbial lawn or other grassy area. Well done!
note: I’m just going to put the updates at the almost top of the page from now on: just trying to save all you Nyoki fans all that scrolling and stuff.
April 23rd, 2009
Nyoki has started to grow some grass that I am pretending is hair.
He will be my friend … and I will continue to douse him with water.
April 26th, 2009
Nyoki is really taking this grass … that I am pretending is hair … growing business seriously. Well done Nyoki!
