Life or something like it…

Just a quick howdy between adding three gigs to the list and heading in to CBH to finally put show 10-3 to bed. (I hope) If not, I think my ever-patient boss is going to thwack me soundly about the head…

Playing with Jeremy tonight downtown, and will be sporting a new fez. 😀 I’ve decided it’s my headgear of choice for my role in the Jeremy Hoekstra band. You should come and check him out sometime – and see what fancy fez I’m sporting. I’d recommend The Black Rose on April 10th – I love that place. (not to mention the Shepherd’s Pie – although I promise never to eat it by myself again. whuff…)

Life these days is going from work to gigs to work to work to gigs… I haven’t quite figured out the rhythm of it yet to get into a decent schedule, but I’m working on it. I know a schedule is the only way I stand any chance of getting my sleep regulated, which is why everything has been a little higgly-piggly lately.

I’ll try and post a picture sometime soon of a new jewelry piece that Vicki and I made together. Yup…

“Our brains. Your glass. My silver” (Yes, Slim Jim, that is a quote. And if you don’t get that one, it’ll be inconceivable.)

Sorry… too much of a clue. :-/

Anyway, Vicki took a glass fusing class, and came away with 4 gorgeous pieces of fused glass. The following week, I took a silver soldering class, and learned to make a silver soldered prong mount for one of the glass pieces. If you happen to see her today at C-stone, she’s wearing it. 😀 It came out pretty well, especially for my first attempt at soldering. There’s stuff I’d do differently next time, but overall it’s a good piece.

Next month, she takes the second glass fusing class, where she learns to trim them, shape them and refine them with saw and grinder. Thus making them even more lovely before I get my little paws on them and wrap them in silver or gold. The lovely part is, she really likes working with the glass, and makes pieces that I’d pay a TON of money for. So, her glass and my wire will play nicely together. 😀

That’s more info than I intended to write. Ah well – heigh ho, it’s off to work I go…

    Remember, you have had much more “experience” when it comes to movie knowledge, being that I have been on this planet but a fraction of you…(actually it may only 30-35% more…wow, maybe I’m getting old…).

    However, based on the “clue” that you left it sounds like something from the vein of The Princess Bride.

    As for the “fraction,” young buck, just wait… when little dude is entering college, you’ll understand the getting old thing. 😀
