Carved my pumpkins on the weekend. They’re out on display on the front porch and I fear for them. Hoping they won’t get smashed before the 31st. While I was carving them, ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ came on TV, and I watched some of it. What a beautiful movie! I loved watching them mix pigments from the source material. Made me think of
Rainbow came by from BC to do a show with Ed the Sock on CityTV, and we got to see him, which was nice. I made him grilled cheese sandwiches with my sandwich maker using a french loaf, and he said they looked like cheese-filled hooves. Note to self: learn how to cook.
I agreed to take a shift for one of my coworkers this Saturday, and am now regretting it. However, looking on the bright side, I will (hopefully) get to wear some of my silkscreened store gear. Speaking of which, my deadline for completion is creeping perilously close… worried that with the Snail party Saturday and clean-up from said party Sunday, not to mention handing out candy to kids on our street, there may not be enough time to buy, silkscreen and iron the front and back of twenty-five shirts/hoodies. Argh. I might also be working on a Hallowe’en costume for JVL, but there’s no telling what it is… let’s just say I had it suggested to me yesterday, and now I have three evenings to go from start to finish. And you can’t rent it from Malabar.
Work calls. Peace to all, and a merry Samhain this weekend, if I’m too swamped to write more before then.
ps – Although I have all the fixin’s for my Stephen King ‘Carrie the Angry Pyro’ outfit, I am kind of pining for last year’s oh-so-comfy bunny costume. Maybe wearing it to this year’s Snail party would dispel the bad mojo from last year’s ticket denial fiasco.
