don't worry, i'll save you.

9 1/2 hours later....I am released into the world.
"Sir! are you okay? Sir! I have training, may I give you care?"
Life saved.
And I got the opening reception cleaned up in 8 mins flat.
I am the queen of anticipatory service.
and a bunch of people showed up for it so it was a smashing success.

the joys of a day in service to one's community....
now i will eat take out and watch t.v.
tomorrow I will celebrate the moments of my life.

so good.

i think i have my theme (well at least one) for mz. south philly fabulous:

I just watched some of this epic piece of garbage. Grace Jones is a force (as per usual)
I have to incorporate this somehow.
And her versions of "what i did for love" and "tomorrow" have left me speechless...

had liquid lunch with stefanie and liz then got lost in Target.
Now its time for part 3 of David's birthday (geeze)
9 hours of CPR/First Aid tomorrow then the opening....ohhh girl
Luckily the weekend is shaping up nicely.

this is becoming less about work and more about fun

So today I started working on cataloguing the permanent collection at work. Its going to be a whole mess of work but I'm excited. I get to make a million lists. I have my own little office space and everything. Thursday is the opening for the new show. The work came in today and it looks amazing. I always get so nervous about handling other people's pieces but nothing broke so we're all set for the show. The artists were nice too.

Being a jerk and taking photobooth pictures instead of working but I have big shelves!

Speaking of photobooth.....

my best friend the kokopelli

we have a good time

the first roof party

I am totally exhausted. Busy weekend of work and play.
Danced to some MJ at Venture last night for David's birthday and hit on hot wasted cougars with Stefanie.
Tomorrow I start cataloguing the permanent collection at the gallery which will probably last for a few months or so. I'm excited about working on something this big.
Lovely lunch times with Will and Connor on their way back to Georgia. I was so tempted to jump in the car and go with them but here I am.
Time to rest up and clean up for the week ahead.

get money girl

Reposted from SG's, mainly for chrissy's expression and the fact that my mouth is open in pretty much every picture of me ever.

fun night. can't wait for next month. 

Anyways, I did not kill the new baby. We had a good day at the park and tearing up the house and he didn't suddenly learn how to use the phone and call 1-800-4ACHILD. 
Taking it real easy tonight with some delicious beers after hopefully learning new rope skills.
Working tomorrow and Sunday.
Looking forward to lunch with the little gay boys from the South.

this country motherfucker

see you in two days. 

i learned how to screen print today.
now i am enjoying a documentary about brion gysin.
i hope the new baby is okay tomorrow! 


I got this card in a reading I did for myself a few days ago and feel like it sums up a lot of what's going on and what has being going on with me recently. The six of Pentacles is a card that has a lot to do with events surrounding giving and receiving. It can be about money but also about personal relationships, work, whatever. 
Right now I have been lucky enough to be receiving so much from family, friends, work, and life in general. Its been weird dealing with the idea of not going back to school for the first time in 18 or so years and it really threw me for a while. I've been really worried about staying here instead of moving and making an effort to have a life here but as things often do, it has all fallen into place. I really feel like I am where I need to be at this point in my life. I feel like I finally have some control at least for a little bit. 
I've made a lot of scary, big girl type decisions, stepped a little further out of the closet, and started to harness some key parts of my personality that I've ignored for way too long. I've lost some big things along the way but I feel like what I am gaining is way more important. 
It is truly time, maybe more than ever, to T.C.B.

new things (beeswax will never die)

The plague of Athens
and a new reliquary

These guys..

My favorites from the the thesis show. Jezebel, Paul, and Angelus (top to bottom).
Still keeping me company with the rest of them in the new studio!
