Wednesday: Soapbox

Today is wordless Wednesday:
I love these women and men!


Tuesday, August 21, 2012


Yep Sometimes I am that girl
The make-up, fashion magazines, and nail polish girl.
Cat in my lap and an overpriced salad in my belly

But rest assured, I know that the women I see in this referenced magazine are not real.
You can't fool me, there are no pores.
Everyone who has a basic understanding of science understands that you can not be alive without pores. So all these over photoshopped women are just paper dolls
with $15,000 handbags.
But my oh my what pretty pretty pictures and colors

Breaking the streak

Dublin, Ireland 2012

I have not had my morning/afternoon/nighttime cuppa tea in over a week.
It was not a conscience decision, I just kinda stopped cold turkey
when my cold parked itself in my head.
So this last week had felt strange, like I am forgetting something.
Hubby said I have broken my habit, that the first three days off caffine are the hardest.
I haven't had headaches or been itchy...but I have missed it.
Mostly the ritual of drinking a hot yummy cuppa in the I was telling my insides to wake up or something.
Well, today I am meeting a friend for tea...I am going to have a cup of chai
I feel kind of bad about it, like I am going to dive into a guilty pleasure knowing that I am going to fall into the deep end of the pool and allow myself to float down to the bottom slowly and ever so effortlessly...but I am also so looking forward to it.

I'm here, keep your pants on....

OK so I have been busy...really busy, filling my head with images and sounds and sights...
I will share some of them with you now....

OK I ate this in the town that the Twilight boy was spotted in nursing his broken heart.
I kind of wanted to see him, even though I am not a twi fan...but I just had a lovely conversation with my sweetie instead

Here is the Edward Hopper painting that made me weep
at the SFMOMA.

Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Untitled (Rat and Bear, Sleeping), 2008/2009; installation

This is a piece called Rat and Bear Sleeping...that scared the shit out of me...they breathe...well look like they are breathing and I was afraid that they would get up and grab me.
I think I am still a little traumatized from it.

I got a head cold...I slept on the couch so I could sleep sitting is not pretty.
I am giving you real life here people!

I completed my edition of bookplates for this show

This is a neighbor showing off his ocean caught fish...
much to the delight of the neighborhood girls.
The fish was horribly embarrassed

This is what I saw last week in TJ's, little girls in 4.5inch heels...
I am not sure I have moved past this either.

The wall of yet sold artwork from the local art auction.
It was hot and packed and there was loads of tequila
