last night i got goodies from the Tech Fairy. Thank you Tech Fairy! nom nom nom. i may not have to make caramel corn as a goodie this year. i'll stick to the fudge and candied nuts. if i can. i put the ribbon back on it, when i was done seeing if it was perishable, then put it under the tree, not a truffle will be sniffed before the blessed day.
i get paid today. that gives me $200+ to spend on groceries and stuff i need and want for a month. BUT, doc called last night after he got to work (NEVER a good sign) and asked if i wouldn't mind buying new wheels for his bike. i was a bit curious as he just got the spokes adjusted and tubes replaced and properly pumped in his tires, but sure, he would know if he needed new ones, and he's the level headed one when it comes to money, so sure. then he told me. someone had their bike on the bus rack before doc. so he had to move doc's to get his down. he left doc's bike hang and it got half run over by the bus. the wheels are now all twisted. people suck! that was my xmas money! i was meant to get him a chainsaw on a stick, and now i'm not going to be able to get it for him until january when it's no longer on sale. bother.
i have enough left for groceries. including stuff for me to make more cookies and candy. as long as i don't eat all of it by myself. i offer it all to doc to take to work and share with his few friends there. i just like making it, frankly. yes, it's nice to have a sickerdoodle to nom on when the time is right. but that's not the point. i notice, though, that doc didn't take any of them to work. and when he sat down to have a cookie with me on the couch yesterday, he ate 4 of them. i think he likes them.
i got up feeling weary today. i don't like that. i like to get up energized and "up".
i was thinking about looking into talk-to-text programs to do these as written and vocal entries. it has occurred to me that most of you have never spoken to me conversationally, you have no idea what my tone is. and i don't often write in my "tone". there's a lot of sarcasm here that may be missed. for all i know you think i really like white shoes. it makes me sad. does anyone have any experience with these programs? any of them out there worth it? i've been seeing advertisements for Dragon, a program. it's making me think.
i'm still wearing this "Ah Bra", even though it gives me mono-boob. i have little choice, except to go braless and that works about up until i start dancing and they start swinging around, bouncing about, slapping me in the face, then i have to pen them in. and i am ALWAYS aware that it is on me. there is never a time when it just fades into the background. if you pull it down, it feels good on the boob and the ribs, but bad on the armpits and shoulders. let it ride up, it's great in the armpits and shoulders, but sucks in the rib and boob area. there is no middle, i've tried. with the idea of duct taping the thing in place once i found it. no go. i put the duct tape away.
wow, it's 47 balmy degrees. if i put on a sweatshirt and dance, i can go out to the studio. i'll think about that. i don't know what my block is with it, i've just gotten it and i'm already developing blocks. i think it's just mainly wanting to spend time with doc once he gets home. so yeah, going out to work now would be good. i have the lights out there. and i'll feel so good when i'm done with the sorting and unpacking and i know i'll find all kinds of inspiring stuff to turn into assemblage. it's spread out all over the place, stashed in every drawer, every file box, every accordion folder. i'll find plenty.
i got a new end table yesterday. the neighbors were throwing it out because the bottom shelf of it was broken, i glued it and have it sitting. i'll attach supports later today. the drawer of it is a basket. i hope doc doesn't want it because i do. maybe in my room, maybe in the studio.
i made $20 yesterday, and the paints/brushes/canvases cost $82 plus shipping. i'm a quarter of the way there! more toys to list today. hopefully i have some more rare ones that i can put up that will be fast sellers. i'm getting a lot of people viewing the Cabbage Patch sales. i have a full set of McDonald's Beanie Babies that i have to find and put up. i don't even know what that would cost. i'll have to do some research, i'm sure it's valuable because it's Beanie Babies, it's more than a decade old, and it's the full set. the tub out in the garage is full of complete sets. i also have a bag of Wendy's, Pizza Hut and Burger King Toys. those will be sold piecemeal. one at a boring time. $2 a piece. i'll be painting in my art journal in no time.
today i must find my sticky-tacky. i consolidated and printed out my zentangle patterns (yes, there IS an organized way of doodling) and i want to tack some of them up to the wall in the studio, since that's where i'll be working in my journals. i can also take my altered book out there to await the glue stick and paint.
i've rambled enough. time to smoke a smoke and see what i'm going to do. i also could use a shampoo. i'm rockin' the 80's hair, with my curls brushed out in a halo around my head. it's really ridiculous. there will be no selfies today. there was a time i couldn't say selfie, and now i say it daily. so sad.
