too many projects!

The shoe cupboard came. It is fancy and nice and I was calling it my birthday present because it allegedly was not going to arrive until February, (Max Mas, yay!), but it came early. Pretty, right? Yay! No more shoes in the entry hall! Also it better be pretty. It took four hours to assemble. […]

the great book war

I have books. Many many books. Not as many books as I used to have. I used to have 1,000 pounds of books. I know this because I paid to move 1,000 pounds of books one time. That was a lot of moves ago. It is surprising how many books you at one time thought […]


marilyn vs rothko

Art. It is a dilemma. The art is always fighting with feng shui too. The Marilyn and Rothko fight is about that. There is this spot of wall between two windows that is perfect for one big piece of art. The Marilyn piece would be perfect in that spot. So would the Rothko piece though. […]

I need a wood chipper

Why, you ask, would I need a wood chipper? Shredding! Sweet Mother Mary! Shredding took forever. The little shredder can do 12 pages at a time, but I had 15 years to shred. A friend asked why I had all those documents and it’s because I’m not just a person, I’m a business, so it’s […]


new city, new life

I’m in a new city. Packed up everything parts Austin end of December and moved to San Antonio. I think about just how lucky I am. I can do that. Just pack up and go. I could move to the moon if there were internet on the moon. I love the new place. It is […]

saving the desk chair, again!

Wow, I have been a bad blogger. I have not posted in forever. Ahhh! Sorry about that. I should update you on the upcoming :::September 2018 Classes::: Hit that link. Doy. In other news, I destroyed the desk chair again. This is the result of working too many hours in a chair just basically destroying […]



Things done today: Reviewed 8 student assignments. Reviewed 1 writing sample. Read 3 feature scripts. Set up office. Yay yay yay! Yeah yeah yeah I know it is ridiculous it took THAT LONG to set up the office, but I have been really busy and also there was that getting injured thing that made standing […]


sometimes emp sounds like a good thing

    I have boxes of documents. I mean, boxes. And more boxes. And more boxes. I have been paying storage or making storage everywhere I go, for years, to accommodate these boxes.   The documents are important. Contracts, quotes, tax records, clips — they are important.  But —   I keep carrying these damn […]


extraneous stuff ahhh!

  One reason I have too much stuff is, I move. A LOT. We’re talking lost track around interstate move number 10 here. Each new place has things from the last place that work. But also, things that do not. And — Each new place has… new needs. This is how I find myself sitting […]
