it's a wonder that anything gets done

Well, I checked out the new Altered Couture publication and I did see 2 berets in there but neither of them were mine.
I sent Suz my article for Artitude and later decided it was crap.
I can't get started on my little houses because I'm distracted by the ever growing pile of magazines in the living room that I need to get through and out of my life.

Ok, ok it's not that bad but I haven't been in the art zone at all this week and the outside world is squeezing in from all sides. Sometimes, I really have to make a conscious decision to break away from the distractions and hunker down in the studio. I'm not one of these artists that are driven to create 24 hours a day. I'd rather lie on the couch and eat jawbreakers and and watch Eastenders for hours on end. Then I can beat myself up for awhile (remember grandma?) until I surrender to the paint. Thank god, I can't afford a studio outside my house or I would never get anything done.

I'm reading a biography of Walker Evans and right now, I'd say he was a real jerk. Talk about an enormous ego and being lazy and depressed. Jeez Louise! I haven't gotten to the Let Us Now Praise Famous Men part but I'm getting ready to kick him in the ass.

Lee and I were asked to attend a cooking class last night at our friend Matt's store called In Good Taste down in the Pearl. It was Mexican food night and the chef was amazing and the food was fantastic. Ceviche, carnitas, guacamole, piccadillo, pork tinga, virgin margaritas and last but not least, wedding cookies. I was in heaven but god, was it a lot of food. We moaned all of the way home.

That's it for now. Stay cool everyone and caio...
