Fabric on File: Taking
The photo of library_lynn and my mom with the walkers is for
ala_mokita, because he
wants to borrow one and put racing stripes and low-rider fringe on it.
( I went over to the Old Homestead, because Mom & Dad are supposed to turn their mattress every two weeks.Collapse )
The Great Satan and the Little Dog.
One thing that I don't want to
forget has to do with when I was married to Debbie. Her little toy poodle "Vanilla" was convinced I
was the Great Satan. The poodle had seniority over me -- she'd bought the poodle out of pity when
she saw it in with the other doggies, years before we started going out. I told her a relationship
based on pity would never work... that dog died of old age, twenty years later, having outlived our marriage. Anyhow,
Vanilla would yap yap yap each time I had the temerity to walk in my own front door. So one of the
things that I want to remind myself is that I don't want to be the Great Satan -- and I don't want
to be the little dog, either.
When I was at my folks' house, I wrote all of their tasks on cards. They ought to be associated with the
because so many of them have completion target dates. The calendar's due to go on the wall as soon
as the secretary's in place. Or possibly in a drawer, which I think is a major mistake. If the
problem is that the calendar's not pretty enough, get another calendar!
I've got a white board on my
office door at home, and I've been writing my own tasks on there. "VANILLA/SATAN" with a red
circle/slash through it is one of those notes. Another task is to finish writing
my thank-you cards for everyone who worked on Animé Los Angeles. So why am I sitting here
writing this LJ entry on my keyboard instead of finding my purple pen and getting back to work?
tell you about all my fabric some other time.
