I hate deadlines

It seems no matter how hard I work, when deadline week comes, all bets are off.

As Aeryn Sun would say “FRELL!”

And I’m getting sick, too. Throat is kind of scratchy and hurts and the sudden increase in humidity isn’t helping the sinuses much, either.

I think I may make a Starbucks run for a mocha. So there. Ha!

Things that make you go hmmm.

So, I’m installing software and reading the November issue of Family Fun mag while I wait. Lots of ads – the usual gamut of toys, Disney, food, etc.

There’s an ad for Pediasure nutritional drink. It says “Goes where broccoli doesn’t”. And my first thought was, they’re right! This crap goes in the garbage and the broccoli goes in my son.

Mama – 1, Ad exec – 0

The Party’s Over (Nov. 13)

Or..only just beginning, depending on your point of view.

So..Clayquest has ended and I’m in my hotel room, pretty well rested for a change. Yeah!

I am so…recharged..joyful…there aren’t enough words. I’ve taken classes with some of the best and brightest in the polymer clay/mixed media world. I’ve seen demos by Lisa Pavelka , Donna Kato and Rob Yost . I’ve made some new friends – and not just ‘we took a class together’ friends, but people that I really feel will be with me for a long time to come. I got to ‘talk clay’ with some of the most amazing teachers and clayers: Julia Sober , Louise Cozzi , Barbara McGuire , Marla Frankenberg , Lynne Ann Schwarzenberg, Jana Roberts Benzon , Jeffrey Dever (see link in previous blog entry)- not to mention all the wonderfully creative people in my classes.

Anyways – I have so much more to write, but right now I’m going to get dressed and get out of here to go home!!
