"Me and Jenny goes together like peas and carrots." - Forrest Gump (1994)

Why can't I post more often? I have plenty to post! It's because of the disposal. I won't do anything until I install the new disposal. How hard can that be? A wrench, a screwdriver, a basic knowledge of plumbing and electricity...all of which I don't have--yet. I am waiting until all these things fall magically from the sky. And then I will have a working disposal! That's the plan right now.

Okay, yes, I am in a little place of inertia. I have five new designs in front of me, each of which I need to tweak. I mean, TWEEEEEEAAAK. Fine-tune what's way outta tune. Retrace, recut, restitch, rethink, resketch, rinse, repeat, retrace...Oh look! Something shiny. I'm a bit too easily distracted.

Huh? Oh, hello! You're still there. Okay, I'll post some about something that was just about the coolest thing to have happened this past summer. A summit meeting of sorts: Reagan/Gorbachov, Eisenhower/Khrushchev/De Gaulle, and Luzi and Anna!




It was so AWESOME (awesoemaweseomawesomesawsome) to meet Nic (Nic, yes, you know; Luziapimpinella-Nic!) personally and spend time with her family. "Family"... having just written that word, yeah, okay, I'll throw it out again: Meeting Nic was like meeting family. Hello, yes, we've just met, but, well, a handshake won't do. C'mon bring it in for the hug, cousin! Anyway, on the Hildebrandt family tour of the California, Cousin Nic stopped by our neck of the Golden State.

And what is Nic really like? I don't need to tell you; you already know. She really, really is like that! Happy and loving and creative and full of energy and color and sparkle. Just follow the energy and color and the sound of a camera shutter and there's Nic. And she's a cheap drunk. Okay, okay, let me explain: "Cheap drunk" to me means someone, who doesn't need a lot to get them inspired or happy or motivated--"intoxicated," if you will. Nic can get excited at the littlest things, the littlest bit of graffiti or a rusty neon sign or a little sea shell. It's infectious.  And so fun to be around. And an inspiration. A beautiful person inside and out.




Come on back, anytime, Nic. You're family.
