Little Mermaid Clue Three, Bane of My Existence

Need I say more?

Glaze and Texture

As I get time, I want to post photos of some of the glazes and textures I saw at ‘s kiln opening. Here is one:

Facebook and Existential Absurdity

So, let’s say you’re contacted on Facebook by and old pal, co-worker, ex-sweetie,
schoolmate, or partner in crime whom you haven’t seen in many many years, decades even.
You friend each other, and exchange a few very brief ‘OMG it’s been so long!’ messages.

And then?

Then one of you says something that amounts to
“Well, my goodness what have you been up to?”

I am old enough that the answer is so absurd I break out in giggles thinking about it.

“Well, gosh, let’s see . . . okay, after you left the restaurant, I kept working there
for a few more months and then I went to law school and after that I got married
about 25 years ago and, oh somewhere in there of course I stopped going
out every night, and well, anyway, we had two kids who are now
in their 20’s, I stayed at home for awhile, then went back to work, and . . . um . . .
So, basically I grew up, got married, raised kids, lived my life, and now I’m getting older.

Am I the only one who thinks this is hilarious?

Oh No, Not James!

I confess to watching American Idol for several weeks.
Hey, I have to watch/listen to somethingwhile I knit, right?
I first turned it on because one of the contestants is from nearby.
I returned to watch again because I think James Durbin is a great musician and I just plain liked him.
Here, check out two videos –
Well, I tried to upload YouTube videos but apparently they block that. . . .
But, check out the ones for

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow and San Francisco audition one.

He made it to the top four before being out-voted by the fans of a couple of bland forgettable country-pop singers who look air-brushed. Darn!
