Birthdays Abound | 04/20/09
So many birthdays today! Abby turned the big 6, and I picked her up to celebrate after making a quick run to PetCo in Bethesda to get Chompy some food and presents appropriate for a dog who is turning 42 in human years. I'm sad that this will be the last birthday I get to celebrate with Abby so I'm glad Jamie let me take for the day. It was unfortunately too rainy to go to the park or even really run around in the back yard. Tuesday is supposed to be nice (and it is) so we can get in some more activity of the outside variety.
It's also my cousin Kevin's birthday (not picture) and Marc's 26th birthday. Now you're rounded up to 30. Aren't you lucky. You're also the first "new" friend to get a custom picture. Too bad you don't read my blog or else you'd see it. Banking on that fact, I used a picture of you with some hot girls. I'm excited for your party on Friday and double-excited it will be in Georgetown. That's me being selfish. Anyway, Happy Birthday Marc!
I had my art class and found out that I will not have a piece at the local show. Oh well. The class culminated with two pieces being used as examples: one that could be sold for money and another that was "art". Mine was used as the example that people would pay money to buy but "was not art". Ouch. Ah, the joys of being invalidated. Adding insult to injury was that Cutter's piece (untitled, of course) was used as "art". I love abstract art and I don't need my paintings look like anything but it was total crap. She is choosing to go to art school at AU and said the same thing I said for my masters, "Yeah, I really wanted to go to Michigan but FSU offered me so much money..." It's how you cover up the fact you didn't even get into Michigan without having to explicitly lie. In her case it was NYU. Whatever, dude. I'm bringing out the big guns next week. I'll show you guys art if I have to take a dump on a piece of wood and smear it into smiling squares.
