Surreal: Daily Post

I did this for an assignment. The assignment was to do a cover of a college catalog or a brochure in Adobe illustrator. I chose the School of the Arts at the University in Kansas. I think I redid the Emerald City a million times.

Click Chicks Photo Challenge: Handwriting

Click Chicks Photo Challenge: Handwriting

The prompt for the Click Chicks Photo Challenge is “Handwriting.” My handwriting is notoriously messy.
I wrote a poem by Anne Sexton called, “The Black Art” in my poetry journal.

This is my mom. She is a pretty cool chick. All of my friends wanted her to be their mom.
When I was growing up, she went back to college. She graduated with honors. On the first day of college, she didn’t think she could make it. I knew she could because she was smart. Like super smart. She is still one of the smartest people that I know.
She seems to like me. She has been good to me, even though I was one of the pickiest eaters on the planet. I also didn’t like talking or going outside. So God bless my mother. Hey Mom, thanks for not shipping me off to Mars or somewhere.

I wrote about my dad in this post. /p>

Glasses: A Love Story

Glasses: A Love Story

011

Look at these broken glasses. They are both so busted and scratched up. This nonsense of wearing broken glasses has been going on for at least two years. Maybe three.
So their owners went to the eye doctor together. One of them decided to get contacts and looks extremely attractive. The doctor told the other one that there were cholesterol deposits on their eyes. Time for one of them to give up fatty foods.
So if you haven’t gone to the eye doctor for several years, it’s time to go. You never know what you could find out about your eyes and your health
Now the glasses can retire together and live happily ever after. The End

P.S.
If your glasses are in better shape than the one’s in this post, the Lion’s Club will gladly take them off of your hands. They distribute glasses to those in need who cannot afford glasses.

Where are you when I need you Camping Fairy?: NaBloPoMo

Where are you when I need you Camping Fairy?; NaBloPoMo

Until the other day, I thought I had convinced my boyfriend that I liked the outdoors. Apparently, he knew that it was a farce. He said he figured it out a few years ago. I asked, “How did you know? Did my mom tell you?”
My mom didn’t have to tell him. It was obvious from my camping skills. I don’t know how to make a fire. I don’t know how to set up a tent . . . and for the tent to stay up. The turmoil that I feel when the tent falls during a rainstorm is too much to hide.
And I don’t like to be so dirty for so long. Nature is great. But I don’t like it to be in my hair or all over my favorite boots.
I went camping once or twice last year. I might go again someday if the camping fairy brings a camper to keep out some of the nature.

Here’s a funny link about being an indoor person:
