I've been out walking :: I don't do too much talking :: These days, these days. :: These days I seem to think a lot :: About the things that I forgot to do :: And all the times I had the chance to.
hello? anyone out there? the above song seems to epitomize my mood lately [name that tune?].... my break got a bit longer than i had hoped because i got sick. really sick. sicker than i've been in years sick. on the sofa unable to even read.... occasionally sleeping and waking to 2 kitties and 2 doggies piled on top of me.... tonka above pretty much says it all in terms of my energy level. do you see his tongue peeking out??
i watched a lot of movies.... harry potter and the goblet of fire, the matador, the chronicles of narnia [book is better except tilda as the ice queen rocks], pride and predjudice [i wrote a paper on how jane austin was actually a feminist in junior high.... and grandma i don't see my resemblance to keira knightly], the royal tennenbaums [again], brokeback mountain [again], three burials....
i still tire easily. so i guess i must just listen to my body which is seriously telling me to s. l. o. w d. o. w. n - OK OK - uncle.
i just wanted to pop in and say hello. that i'm still here [even though i contemplated what life might be like w/out the blog]....
here's a bit more holiday decoration ::
i have been managing to get cards out, but shopping? ha ha ha [or should i say ho ho ho]. oh well. it will happen when it happens.
what i really want to do though? work in the studio. but grading and tidying must come first.
a former student and i are working on a cupcake show that will go up in Feb. at mama buzz . we are going to sort of re-create the cupcake cafe in NY.... cupcakes seem to be all the rage these days. did you see the cupcake soaps that gwen bug found? or if you are in a cupcake kind of mood you can go here or here . for the show i'm also going to make a series of drawings like the above.... cupcakes decorated w/ poisonous/inedible flowers.... temptation can be deadly.
ok... time for a nap. be back soon.... thank you all for popping by and saying hello... and for all the well wishes!!! xo
