I got my early Christmas present today...Yah RIGHT!! 3 wisdom teeth pulled in one day. "On the first day of christmas my true love gave to me...1 top right molar, and a partridge in a pear tree..." Percoset is great, though. I've never been "put under" before either. Never done drugs, never smoked, etc...yah, the typical, unpopular goody goody. I hope to be past the unpopular stage and maybe just be called a granola head or something, but, anyways.
Being put under is pretty cool. The attendants are talking away, chatting about which prescriptions to take and then I'm looking at the ceiling, and it's kind of undulating, like waves on a beach. It finally comes into focus and there's my husband. "Hey honey, we can go now."
I'm like, "Wild...don't I have to get some teeth pulled?"
He says "No, you're done," and then I realize that my face feels like one solid piece of ice from my eyes down. Otherwise, I feel fine. I wish labor was like that! Oh, your having a baby?...Here it is darling...you're all done!
Well, I hope everyone out there is having a wonderful holiday season. I know I will. We're heading to Maui in a couple of weeks. We'll have high speed there, and also plenty of inspiration, and time to paint. So you'll be hearing much more of me in the New Year.
Uh oh, the percoset kicking in. I'd better go to bed before I start writing more gibberish.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night! HO, HO, HO!

What is it about a commission that makes it so difficult? Is it performance anxiety? I can whip off a painting for myself in about 4 hours some nights, and it turns out beautifully. As soon as it's for someone who is paying me, it takes me longer than that to convince my ass into the studio. Then, I start painting corsages right of the bat, and forget what happens when you mix blue and yellow! Help!
Sorry no picture to post tonight, either. My high speed is down, and I'm suffering with very slow dial-up. It took me ten minutes just to log in to blogger.
Well, I certainly hope I have something to show you soon.
