A bunch of stuff I am...and am not

Hi dear ones!

Well Friday is here, which means this is my last "official day" at the comic shop full time, as of Monday I will be moving the Stiletto Heights one woman empire to Chateau Stiletto....

I will become a little hermit girl, painting away the hours while listening to Damien Rice on a continual loop.

It was a very bittersweet walk to the Shop today, knowing that at this very moment I am standing at the very beginning and the very end of something. I have been engrossed in this shop everyday since I first moved to Ohio, and though I am happier than anything about being able to do art all the time, I am a little frightened...I am wondering how Keith will be when all is said and done, last night we talked about it, and I know it has not really sink in yet for him. Then again, he has been so swamped at the restaurant so he has been there more than here.

we'll get through it, we always do...

I may or may not get a chance to blog on Monday as I will be home waiting for the phone company to come and attach the internet and phone, they gave me an all day window...ugh.

The other day I was having a hair catastrophe...the fuzz-flat had taken over and I will feeling all around yuck about the whole thing.

So last night in a sort of manic attempt to tame the mess, I went out looking for new hair product...I ended getting a Got2Be curling mousse, which I never use as hair mousse has that 1980's connotation to it...

anyway, to my surprise, I LOVE the hair mousse, and the best part of it, is that it is called "Kinky"...and frankly I would use it just for the name, and as you can see by the photo of me, it worked marvels on my my darling Bubs would say...I have "Dancer Hair" today.

and please know, when I say "Dancer Hair" I don't mean ballerina hair...more like stripper hair. But I know he means it as a compliment, so I take it.

So as you can see from the photo, I am definitely not the little gamine and graceful girl with the delicate features that I always wanted to be, which is why I am also showing this art card that is available in my etsy shop, it features a lovely little image of Lillian Gish, isn't she just so beautiful you could just die.

The card is called " This Is Who I Am Today" and it is for sale on etsy.

So there you have it, something I am...and something I am not.

The title of this post has officially been justified...(note the Justin Timberlake reference).

Oh, and some more nonsense......I have decided I want to move, I was watching the news last night, and by "news" I mean Access Hollywood, and they were talking about how the ever lovely Brad and Angelina have moved into a mansion in New Orleans, complete with a two story guest that is where I want to live, in the guest cottage of my favorite uber-couple of all time, the Pitt-Jolie's.

ok, enough nonsense for now, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, think of me as I am tryuing to organize the house a bit, and finish up some commissions.

Until Monday my darlings.....

What a great post! Even I am filled with anxiety and excitement, and the only I am going to be doing is sitting on my fat butt.

I think Brad and angelina should just gift the house to you and me, and then buy something even better.. they can write it off, we can open an artists compound....ya think??
