Welcome to One and Done Sunday. One picture and five links that are worth your time.
Saturday night I finished up at my old show, at least until the summer. I’m officially down to one gig now and even though we’re about to go into the long days there, it’s good to not have a split focus anymore.
At home our Harry Potter Sunday series continues. Last week was pre-empted by the Super Bowl. #5 was bummed out about that, but I informed him that as his stepmother it was my moral obligation to force him to watch football. He changed alliances with every score until finally #2 said to him, “If this were an actual war, I’m pretty sure everybody would start shooting you right now!”
This week we’re on number four, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Before we got started, Casey ate the whipped cream off #5’s milkshake.
#5 drank it anyway.
I would have done the same thing.
There’s a scene in the movie where Harry is fighting a dragon and it breaks free and chases him to the roof of Hogwarts. There they land, Harry hanging on for dear life, trying to reach his broom while bits of roof break away underneath him, the dragon clawing towards him, bashing its tail and sending debris flying. At the climactic moment, #5 says, “They’re gonna have to reshingle that.”
This week’s picture demands an explanation.
When I first went on the road, I owned three pairs of shoes. None of them were cute. On my second tour I was CC’s assistant, and he was traveling eight pairs of shoes.
I gave him a lot of grief for that.
He, in turn, gave me an empty road box for my stuff. Suddenly, I had almost nine cubic feet of storage space to fill with things that I didn’t have to haul through the airport.
I found out I liked shoes.
I also found out that CC and I have very different styles.
Recently I flipped out over the above Ariat boots on Zappos. Let’s just say CC was less than enthusiastic about them.
No, let’s repeat what he actually said to me: You are way too old for those boots.
I’m positive that what he meant was Those rock. You should totally buy them!
I did in fact buy them, because I was sure he wanted me to, and I always get at least three compliments every time I wear them. Usually in front of CC.
Which is awesome.
Also awesome is that he got me long-stemmed roses on Saturday for finishing up my gig and I was the only girl with flowers on the subway.
Now for your links. I gotta be honest, I didn’t read anything this week. So while Harry Potter was on I went to some places I can count on.
First, four artists. I hope to be bringing you more about one of them soon, but for now, check out their sites:
This chick does cool shizz with dead animals. No lie. Kimberly Witham.
Amazing color and shape. Love! Jay Gaskill.
I love all of this lady’s work, but her countryside photos really speak to my soul, being mostly shot in Indiana, where I grew up: Jolie Buchanan.
I work with this guy when he’s not off doing fabulous artistic projects: Davis Duffield.
Finally, because sometimes you just need to laugh your ass off about a homicidal monkey: The Bloggess- Would You Like to Buy a Monkey?
