disjointed thoughts

Well first I guess I have to say that the results of last night's American Idol vote are a complete outrage. OUTRAGE. I am horrified that Melinda was voted off, I was going to vote for her to win. I can't stand Blake! Every time he does that stupid move where he turns his head to the right I want to flick him! Erg!

changing thoughts...

The horses are back on pasture turnout now, and Gwen is doing MUCH better. She's not moping around all the time, she's even been running around a bit, and she already looks like she's putting weight back on. Yay! Shylah of course only has to look at a blade of grass, or a dirt clod, or an air molecule, and she instantly starts to resemble a hippo. I'll have to keep an eye on her and maybe limit her turnout time or she will get absurdly fat.

My last hatch of chicks will be this weekend. I have a couple batches of eggs in there for other people though, and those will be finished up by early June. I remember when I used to hatch for 12 weeks. That means 12 weeks of brooder-cleaning, 4 brooders per week...ugh! This year will only be six weeks, so that's much better!

I am selling hatching eggs! See Random Rosecombs for more info, http://www.rosecomb.com/random.

I have a high school reunion this summer. Crikey. I don't know how it has possibly been long enough for it to be reunion time. On one hand it was a zillion years ago. On the other hand I still remember where I ate lunch, where I parked my car, etc. It could have been a year ago. So... what to do. Seems like about 2/3 of my friends are NOT going, and I'm pretty tempted to skip it too. $89 to get in?!?! Cocktail attire, I'd have to buy a dress... Do I really want to see everyone? Some yes, most no. I was never popular! Will I be the only one from the entire class who doesn't have a date? Quite possibly. Why does this feel like prom again? So... the message I seem to be getting from friends is they are saying "everyone I want to be in touch with is on myspace." Okay, I am the last one in the universe without a myspace thing (really do I need one more online distraction?!) but maybe it's time to do that. Would sure be cheaper than $89 and a cocktail dress, and that sinking feeling of walking in alone. Hmmmm. Maybe in another ten years when I'm a household name I'll put it on my list of things to do. ;-) HA ha.

So what am I doing now that the Standard is done? No shortage of things to do! I have several art show deadlines in the next couple weeks, and would like to do one more piece for Draft Horse Classic. It's time to start the new direction of chicken art, a combination of traditional and digital. I have paintings to do. I am finally redoing the art-for-sale section of the website... a new shop, a new venue. I have website clients who want major work done. No shortage of things to do!

GOOD FOR YOU! I am glad to hear that you have so much business now! I knew that the Standard would help with that aspect. I am also glad to hear that people are asking you to work on their websites too! Look out world...here she comes!
