Tomorrow, my eldest daughter is officially an old lady: 20!

Do not say those birthday happiness things, if you please, as I don’t like birthday celebrations (though I do love cake!)

However, feel free to tell her how to get a modeling contract, that is both legitimate and cheap to pursue, so that she can take care of her mother in her, and her mother’s, old age! lol

Cosmic Dancer was featured in T"HE SISTERHOOD":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/the-sisterhood about 13 hours ago I know this ,because I got a notice that told me so. Besides, it is still being featured, right this minute!

You know, he really wasn’t that bad. I saw other things of his, before, where I could see why he would be rejected, but, these are just not that bad.

The man could have been an artist, after all.

To think, all that might have been avoided, by someone being less snobbish about who they let in the academy. I wonder if the academy was run by someone Jewish? That could explain a lot.

Woo hoo The best feature of them all

No offense to anyone, but, this one really made me smile.
