Another high point: the trailer for the new Anchorman movie! In general, I dislike Will Ferrell's brand of humor, but I loved Anchorman, and the whole fam drops lines from it, constantly. (We actually have entire conversations that consist of NOTHING but lines from that movie!) I love lamp.
Also, ran across this article and video today, about artist Yolanda Dominguez's Fashion Victims in Spain. I don't buy a lot of clothing- when I do, it's usually a thrift-shop find. I make stuff when I can. But since the repeated garment factory collapses in Bangladesh, I've become even more determined to NOT buy new clothing, especially from retailers who don't care how many people die in their crappy factories. Yolanda Dominguez had models act the part of rubble-coated victims in front of clothing stores in Spain, to call peoples' attention to the problem. Very cogent, since the Rana Plaza factory complex's main boss is said to currently be hiding out in Spain!
Still working on several projects, and hopin' to have some to share soon. My most beloved medium, wire, is proving to be frustrating for some of the applications that I'm messing around with- a coupla things just aren't going the way I want 'em to. (On the other hand, the "failed" bits look to have potential for other uses, like earring and bracelet components!) Unfortunately, my "real" job continues to dominate my time. Oh, and did I mention that for the past three+ weeks my kids have been divvying up their toys and stuff? Thing One and Thing Two will be sleeping in separate bedrooms for the first time in years. Unfortunately, this means that ALL of us have been living with ALL of their toys, etc. cluttering up our living room, hallways...just about our entire living space, while they accomplish this Herculean feat. The ultimatum was issued this week- it gets DONE, or it all gets OUT. We can't continue to live this way. Especially since our new (to us) sofas are coming on Friday! We can't even WALK in that living room right now. (Unfortunately, we still haven't located the kit for separating the bunk beds...I, er, put it somewhere "safe". Ha ha. Anybody know where you can get a replacement, for metal bunkbeds? End caps and stuff? We're desperate, here.)
Hope all's well in your corners of the world, and that YOU'RE not living in utter chaos! (Well, unless you like it that way!) Good things coming your way...once the dust settles.
