All is well here in VUTOPIA ...
Except, a couple of days ago ... or was it yesterday? I may have been a little tipsy. I suppose the actual timeframe doesn't matter, because, there was a Death in the Family.
Yeah, I am down to only two martini glasses. Ok. That is kind of a lie. I do have 3 ... ok ... 7 ... ok 10 others, but I kind of hate them and never use them. 3 of them are the overly decorated "specialty" martini glasses that you give as gifts for birthdays and such. The other 7 I just don't really like. I should give them away or sell them at a yard sell or something. So, let's rephrase. I am down to only two usable, sturdy martini glasses that I can keep in the freezer.
In other news, my two days of LEED training went well. I learned a lot. Now I have to study a bit and then sit for the exam. Assuming I pass, I will be a LEED Green Associate. Doesn't that sound exciting? The highlight of the entire two day training session was, on the last day, I met up with the Former Blogger ShallowGal. We went to a wine bar. And drank wine. It was Boozy Good Times. Oh, yeah!
I gave ShallowGal this bowl. I have lots of other pottery to give away from the Summer of Disappointing Pottery. I'm afraid that most of this pottery is of the large-ish size, so they can only go to Local Kittens.
*cue sob story*
I am being hit with some medical bills and other not very fun expenses right now (yes, I'm looking at you $600 GovEnergy Registration Fee that still has not been refunded even though the conference was cancelled awhile ago), so I don't really have the extra cash for postage. Sorry. There will come a day when I can mail things to my Far Away Kittens again.
Have a look at this Flickr set and let me know if there's anything you like. I will tell you why it sucks. If you still want it, we can figure out a way to meet up and hand off the goods. No payment necessary. However, if you want to buy me a cocktail ... I won't say no ;-)
Oh, and the handbuilt vase-thing, has been given away already.
And, finally, to shower a little love, maybe if more parents were as Totally Awesome as these, the Boy Scouts would consider changing their homophobic ways ...
Have a wonderful last day of the workweek tomorrow!
(and, now, to hurry up and publish this before my power goes out ... stupid thunderstorm)
