Spring Time For Thugs



Good Morning everyone.

please forgive the fact that typos will undoubtedly run rampant this morning, I am blogging ever earlier than usual and with less coffee in me than usual, I have a ton of stuff I need to get done today, very little of it fun.

Again, I have a zillion packages to package, an ad to design, invoices to be sent out (remaining Comic Shop Business), stuff to list on Ebay, and of course...my standard time to paint and list on etsy.

Again, I look to the heavens and bellow..."Unpaid Intern, where are you????"

ok, enough of that.

I hope you all had a delicious weekend.

We had the mean cheese this weekend, and Saturday she was all mean and all cheese. It was rainy and awful all day, so we were house trapped and even fashion magazines would not help ease her...

we watched a ton of trash tv though, which helped me...including Spiderman 2 as the mean cheese has a total thing for Tobey Maguire, we also watched the Shirley Temple classic...The LIttle Princess....the best thing though was I finally got a chance to watch a special DVD that my bubs gave me for Christmas....

It was a dvd that contained 2 "After School Specials" from back when I was a kid...it was awesome.

The page I have linked to is not the dvd set I have, but...hint, hint...I totally want it, there's nothing like bad morality tales from the late 1970's and early 1980's to make me feel good...

Yesterday got a little better weather wise so we all got out of the house, in the morning we went to the art supply store to look for some larger blocks (no luck yet, but I have one more place to look) and to get so more small canvases.

When we got home my bubs decided to take the mean cheese to the park next door to our house, as it was beautiful out by that time.

I stayed at home so I could have as my mom would have put it "a moment's peace"...shortly after they left there was a banging on our screen door, I look out to see it is the little neighbor girl (sigh, this is why I hate having the door open).

So, I am now forced into chit chat with a small child, when what I really want to be doing is reading W.

The little girl proceeds to show me her cell phone (the girl is only about 5 and belongs to the gangsta' couple next too me) I tell her her phone is nice and ask if it was a special present...she tells me no, that it is to be used in case "my moms gets dead, thens I need to calls 911".....

what the hell do I say to that?

SHortly after that bubs and mean cheese get home form the park, he has a look on his face, I ask whats wrong and he tells me about how as he was pushing Sarah on the swings there were a bunch of up and coming thug types playing football...something happened and all of a sudden there was a verbal brawl, complete with tons and tons of "Mother F*&%er" and the horrible "N" word that I won;t even type....

again, it's a good thing the mean cheese is deaf.

It is going to be a long summer if this keeps up....

ok, hate to cut it short but I really need to get to work...though I don't want to, not even at all....it is one of those days where I can tell the Spring Fever is creeping up on me, and it will take all my will power just to get through.

oh, this is my 145th post today, how cool is that??? I feel so accomplished. I am also at 795 sales, so I will be getting awful generous leading up to 800, whoever is number 800 gets a free 8x10 collage...yay!

I have listed another "Gia" card in my shop, I think it's a good companion to the other card. I will be listing the other fashion card I am showing a bit later today too, as well as a JAmes Dean collage and a new set of blocks.

very excited.

until tomorrow.

Wow... VERY interesting weekend indeed.

I've said many times that people under eighteen years of age DO NOT need a cell phone but... I stand corrected. Poor little girl.

that's my phonetic rendition of "Damn," in case you couldn't tell.

congratulations!
and sorry to horn in on earlier comments, but i saw that someone mentioned heroes and i need a heroes recommendation.
is it good?
should i bother watching it?
my main criteria for television is hot men, good music and any sort of humorous plotline.

i had a bit of a tough week, to tell the truth. they do make the good times stand out more, there is that compensation:)

im sorry to hear about the park incident. deafness certainly would come in handy sometimes. for the worst reasons.
no idea what the 'N' word is though.

i must check out this dvd link - im reminded of bad morality tales from the 1970's of my own now!
did you get to see 'tales of the unexpected' over there? the Roald Dahl stuff?

i rebought them all recently, mwaagh!
