March 9 10am-ish

Well, here we are again.
This photo is the view from my window workbench.
Sitting and playing with alcohol inks, I'm able to look out at the snow coming down. It is pretty, but it's also only the 1st day.

No panic this time. I don't have anywhere I need to be until Friday. Yay!

The panic and claustrophobia shouldn't set in till about Thursday morning if this doesn't go away. For now, I'll happily enjoy the quiet, play cd's and fiddle with paper crafts while it continues to snow.

THE UPDATE ~>>> 3-10-09

It snowed, and snowed, and snowed. Nearly 7 inches. Then, *cue angels singing music* the sun came out. Clear Blue Sky. The contrast against the freshly snow covered roofs was beautiful. 3:00pm and the snow started to melt. Of course it didn't melt all the way before evening came and the temperature started to drop. A cold, clear night left us with a crunchy, icy roadway in the neighborhood and black ice on the main streets. I'm stuck in the garage but hey, the sun is out so I don't mind :)


So, I did a show yesterday at a local Middle School. I usually try to avoid schools as they have never been that great for me. I stayed up late two nightes in a row making jewelry like crazy. Well, as crazy as I could with a low motivation level. The show was a bust. I made my fee and less than $100 for the day. It also snowed. That likely impacted our attendance.

So today I'm back to what has made me happy lately. SWAPBOT! Yay!
Don't laugh. I'm actually hosting a couple swaps on the open boards. I have done a few within the safety net of my groups but these two? These two are for everybody!
Come join!

ATC - I found it in the Newspaper!

Come on... do it.. you know you want to :)


Those of you that know me, know I'm a Reality TV junkie.
I'm not proud of it, it's just a fact. I'm coming clean.
I haven't yet tried to figure out what sick little part of me enjoys these things. Maybe it's the loose script as opposed to the super-fakey script of the sitcoms or the over-acted script of the many prime time shows. Maybe it's that the often totally crazy, sometimes trashy "Stars" (I say loosly) make me feel more normal. Maybe it's the opportunity to be smug and judge without feeling guilty...


The Bachelor finale.
Really!?!I can't hold back what a Tool I think this guy is. I've felt all along that Jason was the type of guy that RSVP's to everything with a "maybe" in case something better comes along. This ending was really no surprise, I guess. It was just a fickle Kirkland guy with his daily case of "what if's".
For those that don't watch: This guy from Seattle Area, MY area, dumped Girl 1 on National Television, asked Girl 2 to marry him. Went home alone (as the show requires to keep the secret till airing), changed his mind, DUMPED the girl he picked, again on National TV, then asked Girl 1 if she would go have coffee. Really!?! What a Tool. I predict he will be staying "in" more once he's back to Seattle from the show taping. That or he needs to wear a big hat and grow out his facial hair for a disguise.

Honestly, he kept saying "Ty (his 4 yr old son) is my number 1" and "Ty will always be the most important" and "What really matters is Ty". Then why did he put the little guy through this; Dad being gone, being flown all over the world and staying with family members, meeting multiple women (3 in all)? Neither of these final two women deserved to be number 2 to this guy. They both deserve better.

Also, They said he was from Kirkland. Yes, Kirkland. I'm from Seattle and the Sleepless in Seattle parallels they were portraying made me throw up in my mouth a little. PLUS, that S-in-S style houseboat was certainly not in Kirkland. His home in the Bachelorette season were HE was Dumpee, was an average 50's Kirkland house. Did they really think the regular Bachelor viewers wouldn't catch that? Lot's of creative license taken here.

Rant over. I feel better :-)
Don't judge me. LOL
