Electro Cali

I'm back! Finally got a new piece finished and up in the shop. My sabbatical is officially over, and I am back with a vengeance! For all of those whom I owe paintings, I haven't forgotten you, and I apologize for being a total lame-o.

May is going to be in-sane. This is ok. I can handle it. I can handle anything. I am superwoman.

Forget regret, or life is yours to miss,
No other road, no other way,
No day but today."

Head down, beating my fists on the floor,
Going crazy, feeling so far from my home."

I see a stranger in the mirror and he wonders why."

Feeling nostalgic and contemplative. Interpret as you will.

C and I attended our first professional baseball game ever at The Ballpark in Arlington this past Friday. Communal experiences are such wonderful and interesting things. We laughed,


we cheered,


we drank,



we rallied,


the Rangers won.


Also, there were fireworks...set to Elvis tunes. :)


It's time to start figuring things out, enjoying life, building something to be proud of and excited about. There's no better way to spend one's time alive. After all, it is so transient. It would be a shame not to make the most of it.

"I'm too old for a slow parade,
Think it's time to go my own way,
Oh my, gotta keep moving on,
Oh my, my, gotta keep moving on."

...the need for tweed.

C is cooking up a pot roast for tonight and I cannot wait to consume it.

I am either experiencing some wicked allergies, or a mildish cold.

The desire to purchase something on etsy is strong. Maybe it's time for a little treat. As always, I will keep you, the reader, informed of my impulse purchases.

Tattoo Tuesday #2- Summer 2010. This one will be epic.

Grad school is officially a part of the life plan. This is serious bidness.

April is nuts. Wish me luck! Happy Sunday...Chelle

Bullseye Trigger

Hello, Internet. How have you been? I have missed you.

Things have been a little crazy as of late. I got my first big girl job and have been trying like mad to seem as though I have any idea what's going on. It's amazing how much less time you have to mope around and be depressing when you're trying to appear useful for eight hours a day. It's exhausting.

This may seem trivil, but I am very proud of the fact that, aside from a morning bowl of cereal with a dash of skim milk, I have mostly given up dairy. Oh, cheese, how I miss you. Oh, queso, how I miss you. Tragic, yes, but it is for the better.

My first real vacation in several years is coming up in June. The hubby and I are going to Las Vegas with some friends. They are mainly focused on the gambling. I am mainly focused on the food. So many culinary powerhouses are based in Vegas. I am looking forward to a food orgy the likes of which would make kings tremble.

As for today, I am going to visit my great grandmother in Durant with a very good friend and my little sister. Then, it's down to Shertown for some time with's C's folks. It is sure to be a delightful and exhausting day. :)

Enjoy the weekend, etc...Chelle
