My sense of order is going haywire. Things are getting seriously mixed up here. My self-imposed blog homework has been eaten by the dog. But I swear it’s done Mom, really! (Well it’s scribbled in half-sentences in my journal.) Still: I have stories from New Mexico to share! And kitschy graphic imagery for hungry eyeholes! And I will do it, I will get it all nailed down so soon. Yes and yes. Don’t you worry, it’s all up here (knocks on empty skull)

It’s taken me a long time to realize that my life skips around. It ain’t linear. I pinball between events and interests. It is impossible for me to proceed with any lasting sense of order. This gets really freaking tiring. But there you go, and here I am. I think it’s okay this way. I don’t want to feel inadequate anymore because I don’t do things in a reasonable sequence. It’s a sunny day and I want to celebrate my flakiness! I always get everything done in the end, so why worry about my chaotic methods?

Tell you what, though – when I do manage to plod methodically through my tasks – after a while I get BORED. Such a teenage word, bored… but my mind loses interest and starts to wander. Sad truth. Any small sense of relief I may experience by Getting Things Done In A Timely & Orderly Fashion is rapidly replaced by wasting mornings reading trashy magazines on the couch, going out to breakfast, buying a bottle of whiskey in the afternoon… napping… I gotta mix it up to keep it interesting. I’ll finish the other stuff later, really!

So bear with me while I ignore what I SHOULD be doing and just show-and-tell my latest screenprinting adventure:

Currently screening the newest poster for the Western Family Orchestra

One color down, two colors to go… come on out this Sunday to the Makeout Room in SF for some great music! We will be singing and playing and having a grand ole timey. And I’ll give you your very own poster. I swear I’ll get them done!

Addendum: my husband just placed a mimosa in front of me. THIS ISN’T HELPING! Sure tastes nice, though…
