Why? What do YOU do in your spare time?

I keep trying to tell my husband that taxes are for sissies that can't handle a little trip to the pokey. Why, I ask you, would anyone go to those black hole hiding places of tax information when they can spend just under four hours making the perfect tassel for a $2 cheesy vinyl Wal~Mart bathroom roll~up shade? THIS, my good man, is what keeps me off the i.v. of Mai Tais. This is what gets me out of bed. Would I ever rise if I had to face just tax preparation? We all know that answer. This was a particularly challenging week for me (and therefore others) in the department of relationships. Some had to do with good friends, some had to do with therapy, some with auctions, some with...hmmm...I can't say. But I can say that I came unhinged more than a couple of times this week. But here's my recipe for a quick fix: 1 cheesy, vinyl roll up shade (Wally World~for shame) 1 perfectly perky on it's own tassel from Pink Cabbage 1 cutie patootie button/face pin from that lady at the DC Big Flea 1 pink chipboard clock (Recollections) 1 yard of pink raw silk ribbon 1 naturally sepia toned page of your daddy's trumphet music Directions: Turn on Grey's Anatomy and just assemble the pieces. Make sure to allow two days for tweeking and three hours for acquiring the perfect digital picture, then 84 minutes to gaze at your glory and 1 hour to post your wonderful new "who gives a shit" ideas for veiwing by your virtual (and by virtual I mean imaginary) friends. Optional Additions: 3 liter bottle of Coke 1 package of Oreos plus bowl of milk for soaking 1 box o' fine wine Please feel free to post the results of your projects on this blog for all of us to share. Buenos suerte!!!!!
