The day has gotten better


The sky this afternoon was lovely.

I was cheerful this morning, then things went downhill. But they have recovered, and I am quite happy again - in part, I think, because tonight at Murky Coffee when I was sketching for my Modern Architecture and Design class (see the sketches below) two random guys across the table from me started telling me how impressed they were with my drawing skillz... and there's nothing like a good, old-fashioned compliment (or three or four...)to make you feel better about yourself, right? ^_^




Also, I had a nice excursion to Michael's and Goodwill today, where I bought a bunch more beads & a brand new (white, hard-covered, spiral-bound) sketchbook at Michael's. And then a lovely pair of new chucks at Goodwill. ALSO, I fell in love with:
1. a sky-blue chest of drawers (in picture below)
2. a set of (almost)Brno chairs (behind the chest in the picture below)
and 3. a hideous (but very awesome!!!) night-stand/cabinet (also in a pic below)




And that was my day!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinite goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

Hahaha. What an asshole.

I'll help you pick up that blue chest-of-drawers thing, no problem.

YOU need to help me remember to go to the bank, tho. I am about five days away from losing $100 when this check expires.

thought & humor... no offense, but what does that even MEAN?

& - I'll try my hardest to help you remember! We can stop by there on the way to Goodwill?
