The Boys of Thanksgiving

 Hello, Kittens.  What up?

Things in VUTOPIA are about the same as always ... work is fun, but superbizzybizzy.  Pottery class has ended until next year.  Sad Facez.  I am still taptaptappin' away.  I missed the most recent class because I had a cold.  Yuck!

So, you may not have noticed, but there was a holiday recently.  We call it Thanksgiving.  And, as is our tradition, my building held our 3rd Annual 10(ish)K and Brunch.  This year, because our normal hosts moved, I hosted the brunch.  It was fun.  My apartment looked like this:

I made tofu scramble, pumpkin coffee cake, and baked egg casserole with spinach, mushrooms, and salsa:

I also had cheese and crackers and a varied assortment of homemade pickles and sauces.

Other people brought delicious foods as well! Bread! Fruit salad! Vegan sausages!  And lots and lots and lots of champagne.

It was all quite tasty and fun!  But, I was quite happy when everyone left (around 2:30).  Silence is golden.

Afterwards, I headed to Virginia to hang out with M (y'know my ex).  We may (or may not) have had lots (and lots) of very hot sex.  And ate leftovers and watched a movie (Iron Man 3).  It was his birthday.  And, kind of an anniversary, because last year at Thanksgiving was when we reconnected (for the first time).

ANYWAY, I also met this other guy.  We had a date (and ... maybe ... hot sex) on Tuesday evening.  He's amazing.  Educated.  Handsome.  Funny.  Beautiful Smile.  Well-traveled. And supersexy.  Soooooo my type. There is one minor problem: He lives in Switzerland.

We had a second date Friday night.  It was also good.  He flies home this evening.  We have promised to skype.  I guess we will see what happens.

In the meantime, I will deal with M's insecurity issues.  And my inability to not be attracted to him.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

How About Some More Pottery Pix?

Since my last update, so much has happened (ok.  not really).  BUT, anyway, the Army 10-Miler was awesome.  I made it my bitch and took about 5 minutes off my previous time.  Yay me!

I am still taking tap class.

Last week, I took a Living Social Intro to Pickling class.  That was fun.

And, pottery is winding down for the Fall.  I still have a few unfinished bits and bobs, but here are a few more pottery pix for you to enjoy(?):

A bowl!

Two mugs!

A handbuilt mug!

All of them were glazed the same way.  When they were "leather-hard", I sponged black and white slip onto the clay. After they were bisque-fired, I used clear glaze and translucent blue glaze.

And there you have it.  Everything I've made (so far) this Fall is here in this set: Fall 2013.
