Guess who was hiding in the closet?

Hemingway!

I had forgotten about him, but I’ve been in a mood, and when I’m in a mood I read Hemingway.

He writes in this beautiful, simple yet amazing way; I want to make art like he writes.

Anyway!

So Hemingway was under my make up portfolio, and finding anything for that era of my life used to make me sad. Now, it makes me relieved. If I hadn’t stopped make up, I wouldn’t have looked for some other artistic endeavor.

This, of all my portfolio, is my favie, shot by, of course, Shane.

It’s one of the few times I planned something and it came off 99.8% like it was in my head.

But it’s catty and ass kissy and everybody is a professional now, so blerg. Last time I did make up was last September.. I don’t even think I looked at the picture. I was that into it.

I found my printout screenshots of when I was on lifetime.. My hair is very short and you never see my face really, but it’s me!

Guess what I found also? At the Durham mission thrift store??

For TEN DOLLARS.

I do not understand this tapestry. But I’m cutting it out so who cares?

The guy on the left is all ‘you enjoy my crotch in your face as I play this tiny guitar’, and the guy on the right is all ‘yes, I very much enjoy it, as you can see my hand in my pants.’

Hoping that this wasn’t some weird priceless fetishist wall hanging I was about to deface, I began to remove it from my most awesomest frame.

‘Please be filled with cash. Please be filled with cash.’ I mumbled to myself.

It was not.

But I did get a better look at the tapestry thing, and noticed that it was apparently the predecessor of an orgy of some sort, with all the creepy onlooking men surrounding this woman.

Yikes.

But the frame was FREE! Free of its oppressive orgy-ists!

This frame is AWESOME. And now I can make something huge.

I have developed a semi obsession with deals, and by that I mean I look up stuff on eBay to make comparisons or how much I spent vs how much I could have spent.

This is pretty much because I am poor, and realizing you got a deal makes you feel, um, less poor.

Woot. And mines bigger-per Helpy McHelperson here, it’s 28.5 x 34, and is a custom frame from some hoity toity outfit in Charlotte.

I think I have an idea of what I want to make. But it will be the biggest pain in the ass imaginable.
