#000000;">i find it hard to believe that i’ve been at this blogging thing for 3 years or so… that is an incredibly long time when i never really thought i’d stick to it… in the beginning it was a whim… something to do here and there… i’ve always written (pen & ink) so i guess the blog thing has actually been a good thing – since it’s hard to do pen & ink for any length of time (frackin MS cramps & shit)
#000000;">thanks for sticking with me you guys
#000000;">i read an article yesterday, maybe it was a day before that… i’m not sure anymore… anyway i read an article in the recent past that said there were 27,000 deaths in the U.S. in 2007 caused by accidental prescription pill overdose…. damn…google it… you’ll find it
#000000;">bought myself some new kicks yesterday… well, i didn’t really buy them… and no i didn’t steal them either! i had a gift card that i used…. cool! i got me some van’s… the chuck’s are worn out… i will have a proper burial for them… or not… i might paint them and glue them together and pour glitter and sparkles all over them and then hang them from a tree branch and call them art 🙂 hmmm i think i have a few pair of old chucks around the tin can… i’m getting an image… a chuck totem… lots of chuck’s that are glued and glittered and painted and sparkled… oooo
#000000;">poor coach… there are many half painted half finished projects laying around everywhere… he’s such a good sport… he just lets me doodle and paint and glitter and glue whatever i can get my hands on… he told me this morning that i need to go ahead and do some designs on the new floor before he seals it …. awwwwww
#000000;">i’ve been so tempted to draw on the walls around my desk… haven’t done it… my mom taught me that we NEVER write on the walls… so everytime i pick up a pen and face my wall, well that damn ol guilt kicks in… it’s as if mom is sitting on my shoulder….
#000000;">“Sherri! what are you doing!??!!??” haha and at that point i involuntarily drop my pen and my halo glimmers as i say “nothing…”
#000000;">i can remember when i was little… i had 2 closets in my bedroom.. and do you guys recall in those houses built in the late 60’s and 70’s… on the closet floor along the baseboard was the shoe rack? basically a slanted piece of wood that was raised a few inches off the floor… and it had a piece of molding running across it to help hold your shoes in place? well…. my spare closet…. the shoe rack… was very colorful 🙂
#000000;">i played in that closet… had all my color books and crayons and pens and stuffed bears and other junk in there… i would go in, sit on the floor, and party hard…. okay, as hard as a 6/7 year old parties with colors and stuff…. good times…and i had some cool visitors in there too… merlin was a frequent guest… and so was the Godfather…. Don Corleone that is…yes, i love all things mafia… not sure why but i do… oh! and the oompa loompa’s used to come hang out with me too… they used to sing with me….
#000000;">…i simply love the laugh in this song….
#000000;">i love my mother for exposing me to imagination and great music at such a young age… i think i was 9 when this album came out… and about 8ish when i first met Don Corleone….
