Newest Addiction

I learned embroidery Monday night (3 nights ago) and have already made 3 things.  The first, my cat, was done from a photograph.  The second and third ones were hand drawn.  To make things even better, I found that watching stand-up comedy while working is PERFECT!  I usually get too distracted by having to actually WATCH what is on the TV.  With stand-up, I can just listen and keep plugging along.

 

Now, I don’t know who to blame for not teaching me embroidery.  My mother?  Surely she didn’t think that teaching cooking, hand sewing, machine sewing, cross stitch, and latch hook work was enough for her son!  I mean, what was wrong with this woman?!  But all the blame doesn’t lie with her. Just 50%.  The other 50% lies with my former roommate, Sarah, who used to do embroidery all the time at our house.  Sure, she offered once to show me how to do it and I declined, but I can’t see how that is my fault.  Clearly BOTH my mother and my friend have joined the ranks of women who have failed me, alongside the likes of that female cop who gave me a ticket for having an expired license plate.  I mean, what’s 8 months expired?!  I mean, really?  Oh, and that woman who sold me a roast beef sandwich at an Arby’s in Alabama.  I choked on that thing!


Story Time: What I Saw When I Lived in New Mexico

During the summers of 2001, 2002, and 2003, I lived in Farmington, New Mexico, working at an outdoor drama.  I saw some amazing things when I lived in the southwest and this is one of those stories.  Luckily, I was able to get most of it on camera.

It all started when I came across a giant lizard.  I mean HUGE!  But, since it was the southwest, I had my rifle with me.  I dropped to one knee to get better aim (something I learned from playing Fallout), but then something amazing happened.

The lizard pulled out its cell phone.

seriously

 

and called its friend who was an alien! …who rode on a giant ladybug.

I kid you not.

 

This alien had magical powers, and called forth a bicycle from the sky!

This sooo happened.

 

My friend Merritt was there too and tried to help, but the lizard JUMPED ITS BIKE OVER HER!  That’s how amazing this lizard was!

I was not trying to shoot Merritt.

 

Why did the alien help the giant lizard?  What did they have between them, you ask.

yep

 

Of course, not even friendship can save you when a giant bird swoops down and carries you off.  Where’s your bike NOW, Mr. Lizard?!

the end

 

Now you see why living in NM was such an adventure.
