Another Good Day

Today was a good day. Went to the Puyallup Fair to see what there was to see. Love the chainsaw sculptures with the bear’s bum hanging out of the stump like he’s in head first looking for dinner. Like Winnie the Pooh, kinda. “O, bother,” he’d say. The baby quail in the petting zoo are the tiniest little birds I’ve ever seen. And, got bawled out by a goose. Stood too close to his cage, I guess.

Last week, I went to the Frye Art Museum and saw work by William Cummings. Really liked his most recent work. The subject matter and bright colors were such a change from his earlier stuff. Really liked a few of his earlier pieces from decades back too though, one in particular of a person on a motorcycle because the painting is nearly all black except for a bright patch of color highlighting the rider’s shoulder against the dark. A striking silhouette. The bike headlight is on and the angle is askew. Just looks cool. I’ve been itching to paint something ever since, but haven’t made time. Time just flies in my world, don’t seem to have enough of it. Wish I could take all that time I seemed to have as a little kid and bottle it for now. Waiting and waiting and waiting to grow up seemed to take forever. ♦

Blog This, Blog That

Been telling myself I’d blog this, blog that, all summer. Now that’s it’s nearly over, I’m getting around to it. Do it, don’t think it. Tried Candy Corn flavored Jones Soda recently. Tried Caramel Apple, too. At Thanksgiving, they have some kinda Turkey Dinner flavored one and a Green Bean Casserole one, among others. Haven’t tried them yet, they fly off the shelves.

Gotta get back on track with life and all after taking some time out this last month to get my Mom situated and organized in her place. Going to revise my design website and find a good web host so I can put it online. But, that’s later, after more pressing career stuff. Wonder where I’ll be next year at this time.

I want to live in New York for one year. I’m in love with that place. Knew I would be since I was a little kid. Got to go there for three and a half days as part of an East Coast Tour trip back in high school. I worked like crazy for nine months to make enough money to go on that trip, and it was so worth it. I loved Boston, too.

Someone told me that when you write you’re not supposed to start a lot of sentences with “I” because it sounds self important so I try to leave them out every once and awhile. But, then when I scan the page, there are still a ton of little “I’s” looking back at me. Hee-hee. :)

Jess, if you happen to read this ever, know that Boo has been waiting for you to come pick her up for the trip to Disneyland. She’s waaaiting … kinda creepy, I know. :) Hope you have fun! Speak of the devil, David Letterman is on in the background and his Top Ten List has something to do with Top Ten Least Desireable Attractions.

3- Bambi’s House of Venison Jerky
4- 30 Seconds Alone With Walt Disney’s Dead Corpse

I missed 1 and 2 as I was typing.

Okay, stuff to do, bunches of it, then I can begin writing to a certain someone … ♦

Sporks Are Evil

So, blogging time … there’s a first time for everything, right? I much prefer writing on paper in a journal, but this blogging thing could be fun. Looks like rain outside my window. I love the sound of it on the roof at night. Just saw a preview for My Name is Earl on NBC this fall. Stars Jason Lee (from Dogma and Big Trouble) and he’s this good-for-nothing guy who wants to change his karma for the better so good things will happen to him after all of the bad stuff he’s done to others. He proceeds to visit each and every person he’s ever done wrong. Anyway, looks kinda funny.

Question: What the heck is “poppycosh” (sp)? You know, pepper on my poppycosh from When Harry Met Sally? Just a wonderment. ♦
