the day we met should be a holiday it could commemorate all the things we said

~sarah borges

so, I just can't wait anymore, I gotta show you this one. I call it "sub arbore--tortus" which is latin for "under the tree--twisted." and it is the six-month-iversary present I made for matt. it looks better in real life than it does in this picture, but you get the idea.

it's of a picture I took in Pennsylvania that he helped me "see." and I get to give it to him in like five hours and change and I sure can't wait. we're also going out to dinner at bogart's (and my handy dandy coupon book has one for there, yippee!) and then meeting the birthday girl out--and without further ado, I should tell you that today is the birthday of the fantastic, amazing and fabulous marla. she is so much fun. you should be so lucky as to have a friend like her.

my stomach is better today than yesterday. the GI lady tried to talk me into having a colonoscopy despite a)in being invasive, b)my intestines appearing normal and c)my pain being located right at the location of my gall bladder, which my granny had to have removed and which is the only thing that they didn't test my blood for the function of. (okay, that sentence was awkward). even the dude at the xray place said "you know, that's where your gall bladder is. you should maybe see about having an ultrasound done on it."

I'll have a colonoscopy if I have to, but if at all possible I'm avoiding it. Especially when it seems like we're focusing on something other than the problem. I'm no medical professional, but if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck then, well, you should at least double-check to make sure it's a duck, right?

also, today is the international day of peace. which is, amongst other things, a day to be kind, compassionate and forgiving. try it, you might like it.

and a great way to start your friday--get to work, go to put your lunch in the fridge and have the gal at the coffee put say "did you used to have really long hair?" when you say yes have them say "that's what I thought--this short cut is really cute on you!" I def liked that. :)

that painting is beautiful. : ) compliments from people you don't know at work are THE BEST.

I like the painting. Then again, I like most of your paintings; though some tend to be a little on the cute side for my personal tastes. That's fine of course; paint what you want to!

And have an e-hug. Cuz I can't give you a me-hug.

"but if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck then, well, you should at least double-check to make sure it's a duck, right?"

What they didn't tell you is that they have to go in through the butt to see if it really is a duck.

It might be a witch.

I haven't even seen you in umpteen years, but I recently discovered your blog through the usual routes of friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend blog linking.

I have to tell you, in the past couple of weeks your blog is making my top list. Your enthusiasm is just totally infectious.

Hope all is fabulous with you.
