First conversation of the morning.
Me: We have to get up. It's almost 8:00.
Austin: (clapping) Congratulations!
Me: For what?! (I thought he was being sarcastic)
Austin: I don't know. I think I was dreaming. You put something interesting
in a rocket.
Me: Oh, well I deserve congratulations for that.
Austin: Shut up.
You know it will be a good day when...
you spill a whole mug of hot coffee (cream, sweet & low and all) all over your kitchen floor and yourself and then bang your eye into the corner of a metal CD case.
Don't get me wrong,
I do like Metallica's music for the most part, but how pretentious of them to not even give a nod to the Beatles for the concept of "the Black Album." I was just watching a show on them and they were saying "we just wanted the album to have very simple artwork. By being a blank, black album, it said 'listen to me.'" So, either they are ignorant or arrogant. If they didn't realize that the Beatles did exactly the same thing years before with "the White Album," then they are just ignorant and to act like they came up with that idea on their own, then, yes they are arrogant. But, it is a great album.
The life of a dog
I gave Holly a flat rawhide chew about a week ago and she has spent the last
week "burying" it all over our living room. She has buried it in her bed in
the living room, the pillows in the loveseat, the pillows on the couch, she
tried to bury it in Austin's leather chair twice (I had to stop that
immediately so she wouldn't scratch up the leather), and last night she even
tried to bury it ON ME! Anyway, we got her groomed SHORT at the beginning of
the week so she kind of looks like a large rat with giant fluffy ears and
seeing her furiously digging all over the house is really funny to watch.
Last night at one point she forgot where she buried the thing and kept
looking around frantically for it. And right now she is carrying around in
the kitchen looking for a place to hide it. She's such a nut.
This is cool.
If you read my comment on the previous post you'll see that the label on the bottle of wine I was talking about was designed by one of the artists linked here
. I also noticed that these were the winemakers who create the wine that Ralph Steadman designs labels for. So, I went over and looked at his website. On his art page
I noticed that he included a print called "Early Georgian." That is the print he did when he visited UGA in my 4th year of college. I had the opportunity to buy one last year and we just got it framed about a week ago. The one we bought is colored differently than the one on his site (it is one of about 10 of the "Early Georgian" prints that he hand colored and signed). Anyway, he talks about his visit to Athens, GA on his website. I thought that was so cool!
I was at the grocery store the other day
and this bottle of wine practically jumped into my shopping cart. I, being a designer and all, always choose wine based on what the label looks like. The art on this particular bottle was so cool I couldn't not buy it. Anyway, we were watching an episode of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy
last night and Ted recommended the bottle of wine I bought. There is also a white version with an equally cool label. I might have to pick that one up too.
