09/23/2005: "God Bless America"
It has been raining here forever and ever. When I wake up, when I go to sleep, dark, cold, rainy. I get 1-3 emails a week from people wanting/hoping to move here. I created the FAQ page but even that hasn't helped, people want to talk to someone who actually lives here. I don't always have the time to write back and I'm afraid the responses they get might vary a lot. For example, at the moment, I'm not loving it.
I'm holed up at home with a space heater, blankets, my new Dobro and lots of junk food. I got the deposit check for the commission this afternoon so I'm in the process of cleaning up too so I can get started. Two things can always get me going when I haven't painted in awhile (a check, unfortunately, is one of them) the others are a clean well lighted studio, and brand spankin new brushes...lots of them.
I'm also watching CNN and keeping my fingers crossed that Rita will continue to weaken. Is it just me or do reporters seem sorta let down when they have to report a storm might not be as bad as originally predicted, (and orgasmic when things seem like they might get worse?)
John Stewart was so funny today, he said "I have this quick thing I want to say to The Almighty, um, what part of 'God Bless America' don't you get?"
