5 days?

I think I have a strange relationship with time. I'm not really aware of that time passing. I don't feel that I'm wasteful with time. But I'm not aware of it passing.

instinctive need

Women have a natural ability and instinctive need to shop. This is something that has seemed to baffle men throughout the years. Decades ago, shopping was due to necessity, but more recently, it has also been used as a method of fulfilling fundamental emotional needs. Shopping has a strong psychological revival effect for women, regardless if products are actually purchased or not. Shopping can lift a woman’s stress by gratifying her; satisfy her nesting urges, and being used as a stress reliever through social bonding, rather than using anti-depressants or other doctor prescribed medicines to alleviate stress and anxiety.
The self-gratification aspect of human emotion is met by the challenges of finding necessities at a bargain price. A person gains a feeling of achievement when money is saved by comparable shopping, and allows other items to be purchased for the materialistic wants of a person and his/her loved ones.


I'm fighting the strong urge to feel the emotional effects of a shopping spree.

2x4

A left-handed “Steltman” chair, designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1963

My school offers a history of furniture course within our Interior Design program. I'm really tempted to take it for self knowledge, and so that I can school my boyfriend. We've been bumping heads recently...

admission

part two

We once ordered 50 Chicken Mc Nuggets, for no reason.
It was a sight to be seen
...and very regrettable.

*I'm glad I got that off my chest.

admission

I haven't put away all my clothes yet.
Finishing the closets has been on the top of my list for days, but I'd much rather catch up with True Blood.

gulp...

things you find

Things you're happy to find when you move into a new house:
Forgotten TreasuresForgotten treasures, like the tiny opossum fetus my father gave me over a year ago. He arrived in a plastic Dixie cup floating in wintergreen rubbing alcohol. I made him a better habitation... then forgot about the lil fella until now.

Things you're unhappy to find when you move into a new house:
Miscellaneous & unidentified droppings
yuck. enough said.
A brief hiatus from posting.

Lot's of assembling, shopping, and skull hanging left to do.

snail trail

Semâ Bekirovic "Grid"
video ( 19:00)
I let three snails make a drawing by making them crawl over a grid I drew on a piece of paper. Their slime-trails dissolved the ink of my drawing, creating an abstract figure.

A great piece by an artist that tickles my brain and leaves me with creative snail trail.

UPDATE: Thanks for all the feedback, guys. I might get it, although the misters says he doesn't like it.
Hmmph.

ladders & boxes

Less:

More:

We still have a long way to go before I feel settled in the new house.
I'm really wishing I had some of those snazzy Bewitched powers right about now.
The best part about moving is redecorating and art buying.
One of the first things I plan on doing for the new house is commissioning a neon prop ladder inspired by Ben Jones, but first my sexy step ladder and cardboard boxes need to vacate.
