Alright dudes, I'm off!
BRB, Gone To Vancouver
See you in 5 months!
1) Commissions are officially CLOSED.
I have 3 folks I owe commissions to- you guys WILL get them- simply a little bit late [next week , or the week after].
2) Summer workshops HAVE BEEN CANCLED.
Because I have been whisked away, all the summer workshops at Dodem Kanonhsa's cultural facility will be canceled. I deeply regret any inconvenience this may have caused those who registered for the courses- however upon my return, I'll be hosting these workshops.
Stay tuned for those details.
Well I'm sick again.
Is it any wonder?
This weather has been single-handedly murdering me.
BUT this time it isn't as bad as before- and I've been drinking like crazy... not going to let this one dwell. I have AC to worry about!
Which reminds me- last night? Nearly completed my shields... may I say, I am proud of the painting I did on them. XD
Off to clean the house and drink some tea!
I was stolen from today.
You see, I was working on Shields for the Anthrocon convention [Rawhide pieces, suspended in a hoop]. As customary [and traditionally] I left them outside in the sun to dry off.
I had left out a variety of sizes- from 5” and 6” diameter hoops, to 1” diameter hoops.
As they were drying, I went into the kitchen to eat some lunch. Keeping close eye on my Shields form the window, since I worried that the gardener might come in and knock them over, or that someone might come by and take one.
My worst fears were realized.
I was eating my pickle when I see our resident fuzzy "short ears" [Squirrel] come by and casually inspect these intrusions to her [his?] territory. All to casually she inched closer and closer... before MAKING OFF WITH ONE OF MY SHIELDS!
She took a powder blue one, of the 1” diameter... small enough for her little jaw to make away with it!
So I was sitting there STUNNED in my kitchen… what was I going to do? Run outside and run up the tree to get her?
Clearly, she needed it to decorate her little tree nest or something.
I took the rest of them back into the house, and let them dry by the window in the living room.
I was robbed by a squirrel.
Today I had my portion of good life served to me.
I was on the bus, on my way to Aikido, when 2 dudes sitting near me got up to leave [we all were- we got to the final station]. Both were wearing their pants, half way down their legs... typical "hood" style. Something which is a HUGE irritant to myself.
When suddenly, one of them gets up... and his pants DROPPED DOWN TOTALLY.
The dude scrambled to catch his pants and pull them up quickly, and I just couldn't contain myself... I said "Why bother? You kept them at half mass to show all of us your tiny pecker, might as well leave them on the ground."
I never saw to adolescent boys pull up their pants and buckled them PROPERLY faster IN MY LIFE.
Today, I lived.
