Too damn busy!

Ok I admit I’m a bad blogger. But I have been busy, busy, busy!

Busy first getting back into the back to school routine. Not pretty

Busy with work as upper management once again is stupidly revamping our group for the gazillionth time and micro-managing to distraction. The only good thing was when they brought the database down hard with all of them running their micro-managed reports. That was a big ROFLMAO moment. Bad because they had to rebuild the database – and that took almost 10 hours!

And last but not least BUSY getting ready for Lowell’s 8th Annual Open Studio Weekend on September 27th thru 28th from 11:00am until 5:00pm both days. I will be participating this year. I will be demonstrating Spinning both days. And in case you don’t know I am at the Western Avenue Artist Studios in Studio A306. I am hoping to have some new carded batts for sale too and may demonstrate Drum Carding as well. So if you have some free time that weekend, stop by and say hi! There will be lots of refreshments too.

So since I have no photos to share at this time I will leave you with a meme I stole from my favorite and I am sure your favorite darlin’ Geekpixie.

So without futher ado… mememememe

A) Go to
B) Enter the year you graduated from high school in the search function and get the list of 100 most popular songs of that year
C) Bold the songs you like, strike through the ones you hate and underline and/or italicize your favorite. Do nothing to the ones you don’t remember (or don’t care about)

  1. Oh come on – you don’t like Brandy and Candy Man? LOL. Brandy always makes me think of those Cheesy Old Spice commercials from the 70s…

    And tee hee to the crashing database. Always nice when justice is served 🙂

  2. “Alone Again” was the first 45 I ever bought. I was 8. I wanted to buy “My DingALing”, but my mom wouldn’t let me, and she wouldn’t tell me why either :-).

    Isn’t it ironic that suicide was OK, but masturbation wasn’t.

  3. Did you get a drum carder!?

    Sorry to hear things have been tough at work, but I’m glad you got your laugh in at the powers that be. Can’t wait to see you on the 27th!

  4. You are too sweet. I’ll be walking the open studios being a purveyor instead of an artist for the first time…ever! I’m looking forward to it 🙂

  5. great meme! crossed out the carpenters? really? wowser. first time ever i saw your face is truly one of the best songs – ever! but no to ‘ben’ as well? is it the singing to a rat thing???

  6. whoa, you have good songs on your top100 list! damn!
