Okay, y'all knew I was an artist, but apparently now I can also be a work of art...
If I were a work of art, I would be Pablo Picasso's Three Musicians.
I am colourful and provoking, always looking to break out of the mould and to pioneer new ways of doing things. I have a jaunty outlook and although I am a bit weird, most people have some idea what I'm about.
Two people gave their talks before me, and theirs were pretty emotional, so by the time it was my turn, I was getting pretty sniffly myself. I was mostly okay, except that I said that my Paul was 16 years younger than me instead of saying 16 days... hello, we're both 30! But I had everyone scratching their heads and trying to figure this out. I think some people really thought I was in my late 30's and had married some kid! AAAAaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrggggggggggghhhh!!!!!!!
Amazingly enough, I think I am going to volunteer to give a talk at the weekend, if they can use me. Maybe I'm just a glutton for punishment....
The wonderful and always fun Charlie Brown Christmas is on tonight. "And that's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown."
I am so so sooooooooooo tired. I am s'posed to be taking dishes out of the china cupboard for safekeeping, since tomorrow there will be much banging and sawing right around the corner from there. However, I'm afraid that if I try to move the contents now, I will drop them all and get very, very upset with myself. Did I mention I was tired? Oh, yes.
Tomorrow night I give my talk: for better or worse, I'm done. I hope I don't bore/offend/put off anybody, but as Sammy Davis Jr. sang, "I Gotta Be Me." No, I'm being the weency-est bit paranoid. I think what I'm worried about is that they won't like it, or think I'm just a freak and not an interesting freak. I worry too much, and about stupid things, too. I think I will bring my God Box and explain that too.
The Olympic torch started its journey today... what a beautiful and inspiring thing.
Not having the greatest day today, but I did take a minute at 4:30 to say an Our Father for George. Looking forward to going home and curling up with a book and a majorly large cup of tea... working up the whatever to finish my talk for Wednesday night.
