So it's no secret that I am SO OVER this extended winter we've been so "blessed" with. Also no secret that I love Ugg boots and have no problem shelling out $140 for winter boots in the middle of august, because they're just so cute.

With that said, I just pulled on my mauve crocheted Uggs and got a little sad, because I realized my days of being able to wear them will eventually end in the near future. These are my favorite Uggs, aside from my moccassins. I think it's because I've always had a love of how dancers wear those really slouchy legwarmers...and since I am, ahem, not exactly the dancer type in the body department, these still give me the lovely slouchiness in boot form. I also don't end up looking like I'm suffering from delusions of being tall and graceful and lithe.

This past weekend I worked till three on Saturday, and then had Sunday and Monday off and raged like I was unemployed and never had to wake up early again. It was awesome and honestly, I think it brought back a little of the flicker my soul was missing. I stayed out till 6am Sunday and it felt like old times, which I took completely for granted and never realized were numbered.

Two important lessons learned this week:

*I'd rather go through my days super tired but knowing how happy I was the night before than spend my days hating my life because I was too concerned about being "grown up" and going to bed by ten pm. I've spent too long refusing to make memories in the name of being "responsible."

*No matter how much you want something...when the opportunity is placed in front of you, you shouldn't always take it. Some things are better off not knowing.

The best things about the last eight days:


From the Pawn


Dia los Muertos inspiration


Super long dresses and flip flops.

Mcdonald's sweet tea

Tuesday night TV painting night

Almost being done with the raspberry yarn hat

Chipotle sauce from Vito's

Seeing my grandparents

New art supplies


There's definately been a fair amount of bad, but I'm going to stick with the good.

Brokedown Blogspot

So this should be a pretty awesome and ghetto fabulous update. My card reader has decided that this whole "card reading" nonsense is really not it's calling in life and therefore, has just stopped working. So in lieu of crisp, lovely, well lit digital slr get my camera phone. Yay go team!

Artomatic painting. Not finished

Something on the side that I'm working on. Nothing is glued down yet, I'm still trying to decide if I'm into it.

I've added a lot of graphite detail since I took this. I kinda love this one.

Mini Munny Booty!

FINALLY all done! Hooray!

Hat I've been working on for ages...I just can't bring myself to knit when there's Artomatic to be worked on.

Wall in my house.

Silly little painting I finished last week.

Ghosty painting

Ha. I wear a super old Mushroomhead hoodie when I paint. It's so comfortable!

Mmmmm paint spinner that I waited so long for!

Conversation with my mother today:
"Did you hear who's performing on Idol tonight?"
"Kelly Clarkson?"
"Yeah, and...Keena. No, The guy who's always mad at the Grammys."
"Yes, him!"

Oh mom. Only her.
