My witch

My boyfriend took me to dinner to meet a friend of his. I asked him if he told her he was bringing his girlfriend. He said,"No, I told her I was bringing my witch." I was amused.

Me and IV

Yesterday I spent 3 1/2 hours in the ER making sure I didn't have a detached retina. That was a close one. Scary moments.

An article I wrote on Romance

I wrote over 200 articles for hubpages. If you start at this link, you can follow it around to the rest of them. Or you can choose to write your own articles. It's a lot of work but once you get the hang of it, it's a lot of fun.

The Mad Potter of Biloxi George Ohr

I found out about this potter on the Antiques Road Show and looked him up on the internet.

According to the Antique Roadshow he was quite a character. He built his own kiln, had arms to rival Popeyes, and dug his own clay. He called his pots his mud babies. After a fire destroyed his studio, he went in and rescued his pots from the fire. He called the ones he saved his 'burnt babies'.

Some moods are hard to shake

I've been in a strange funk. Sometimes I just need to get away from the Internet for a while. It's hard when I have daily blogs and I'm in no mood to write. I don't think anyone really notices when I don't post daily but I know. I often wonder if the cost of being an artist is worth it. I can't even afford to drive to craft fairs anymore and I'm tired of paying for a business license each year when I don't even sell anything in Anaheim. Like most artists I hate marketing, taxes, rules & regulations and all the malarkey that goes with running a business. But the thought of punching a time clock isn't going to make me happy either. I feel like I'm in a no win situation.
I was hoping to make a decent broadcast on, but I just don't have enough geek in me to get all the bells and whistles that go into making a cam stream that people will actually show up for on a daily basis. And when I do finally get a few visitors to my chatroom, that is just about the time the system freezes up (not that it freezes up on any other ustream users that I met). For some reason I can't figure out, it freezes about every 20 minutes, just when I get the room off the ground. Of course when I reboot and come back everyone is gone. So I wrote to tech support after Walt Ribeiro assured us that the ustream staff was excellent at working out bugs for their members. Well, maybe he had great experience with them but I emailed asking for help days ago and haven't heard a word from them. So I started my cam today, got frustrated with the poor quality, and when someone did come it, the whole thing crashed.
Right now I'm suppose to relax and go to bed for the night and I'm all frustrated again. Also, I need to lose weight so I've given up my nightly dessert. So here's a virtual dessert. It's all I'm getting tonight.

more blogs and Plurk

One of my Plurk pages: PURPLE The busiest one at the moment.

I also started a new musician's blog today called Rhythm of the Heart.
I'm typing this from the Anaheim Library. I wasn't planning to go until Monday but got a call that my 12 books were overdue. Egads! So I had to drop everything and return them.
