06/29/2005: "Guests arriving / when bears attack!"
Well, my house guests are set to arrive tonight at 10:00pm and I'm very excited. Unfortunately, because I've been under the weather the last couple of days, I didn't get any house cleaning done! So, after work tonight I have 3 1/2 to do a load of dishes, sweep and mop the floors, vacuum the entire house including the stairs, dust, wash the bedding for the guest rooms, and go shopping for supplies!
I hope they have a good visit, they aren't keen on hiking near any bears, I was going to tell them how rare bear attacks are but then there was the recent death of an Anchorage couple on a rafting trip a couple days ago reminded me of the couple killed two summers ago in katmai. Scary shit, I mean, the couple in Katmai were eating in their tent, but this most recent couple had a clean camp site and food stored in bear proof containers. The photo from the recent campsite reminds me of one of Dio's pinhead paintings. Only depressing.
What else? Most of the paintings are practically finished with no dramatic changes in the future for any of the pieces, though all the pink in the one of the woman sleeping with her fiddle, bothers me for some reason I can't put my finger on. I may feel compelled to dramatically alter it but again, I could be just making it worse.
Also, I'm going to be registering tonight for the "Only Fools Run at Midnight" charity race. We get glow in the dark t-shirts and everyone wears costumes. I'm going as agent Sydney Bristow from Alias! I have a hot pink wig and everything...
