On Grades...

... Straight A's.


What gives? It's some kind of Christmas miracle!

*hears a rendition of the Hallelujah chorus*

On another note, we watched David Lynch's Dune last night.

Reverend Mother to Jessica: "You were my greatest pupil. And my greatest disappointment."

I said: "That's probably what Don Seegmiller will say to me in two years."

It was good for a laugh from 100% of the room, which consisted of me, Ty, my bro and his wife.


Hope everyone's holidays are shaping up to be wonderful.

On Talented Peeps...

... so Kenna's a gangsta.

(Just so you know, gangsta is a good thing. When I use the term, it means 'extremely above-average at something'... O_O)

So Kenna's a gangsta. I know this because I was at the Warp&Weave launch party tonight and I saw one of Kenna's pieces on display. She didn't know it was being published. Probably this was mostly due to the fact that they told her it wasn't accepted for publication. Soooo... I got to tell her the good news. That a piece of her original artwork was published in the anthology for speculative fiction. And let me tell you, competition is fierce. One of the artworks published was submitted by a guy in Bolivia. That's right. This is an international publication. w00t! They were selling prints of the artwork at the party and I heard they sold out. Here it is:

"When I Fall Asleep"
Mixed media on paper
by Kenna the Gangsta

I know, right? Creepy. I can't stop looking at it.

Congrats Kenna. You da bomb!

On Watercolor...

So what does it do to someone's mental state to have to produce thirty watercolor paintings in four weeks? I don't know... go ask my therapist...

In other news...

Watch this movie: The Horse's Mouth
It's Alec Guinness as an aged artist with a foot fetish. Crazy!
