The Good, The Bad and the Toad


It started off as a bad art day.  I wore the wrong jeans that were new and smelled strongly of dye.  This effected my concentration level in my art class.  Not nearly as much as the very young fidgity model that looked a little too much like one of my daughters.  That was the first class in which I truely felt uncomfortable.  Although I know she had to be of a legal age to work as a nude model, I just couldn't get the urge to go and cover her up to go away.  I wanted to ask her,
"Does your Mother know what you do?!"  All the while telling everyone who inquires about this class I take  that the body is beautiful and there's nothing wrong with tastefully drawn nudes."  They just shouldn't look like any of MY family!

I was (and still am)  annoyed with Kurt for winding down his blog "Other People Exist."  Doesn't he know how hard it is to find a good read out there!  Especially one with a twisted, dry, quirky sense of humour such as his.  Please feel free to tell him how I feel on my behalf.  In fact I encourage it!  Let him know as a loyal reader of four years how much I think this whole business sucks!  He's not the first quitter.  They seem to be dropping of late.  I was almost amoungst them!  I miss the ones that have gone and hate the thought of looking for new ones as my pool of blogs that I read diminishes.  4 YEARS!

I went to my happy place in Aylmer expecting to continue my cranky day, but it was not to be.  The owner of Vieille Alliance in Aylmer always is a ray of sunshine on a cranky day.  Today when I was switching the art a customer came in and inquired about  "Cou Cou" (it's French name) or "Toadally Caught" (it's English name.)  It has been sold.  Once the formal sale has taken place I'll update my art website.

Well, that's the good and the bad.  And don't forget to go and give Kurt a piece of my mind.  I'd appreciate it!

I refuse to let Kurt quit. I have been reading him for a little over 3 years. You're right, blogs seem to be dwindling. I'm still around though.

Kurt said...

That Kurt. He fuckin pisses me off! He says he's quitting, but he keeps posting every day. What's the deal?!

Yes VE, and thankfully you are just as twisted, dry, quirky as Kurt is. And I mean that as a compliment;-)

BTW....Why have I moved up two spaced on your blogroll in numbers but not in place?!!!!

I did not know about Kurt's blog - will check it out. Congrats on your sale!

I'm not sure, but I think that Kurt guy might be retarded.

LOL re. your reaction to the model.

There must be something in the air as I've also noticed a few blogs I've enjoyed reading over the past few years wind down. Some have just stopped posting altogether while others have created new blogs going in new directions. Heck, I've been thinking of changing my whole blog format lately too. I'm half expecting The X Files theme to start playing in the background. lol
