Georges poses NEWD

Just like that horrible new republican senator in Massachusetts who posed NEWD when he was younger (warning! nekkid and hairy republican pictures! not safe for democrats!)
Georges posed for me so I could draw him. Today I am like
"Georges, I want to paint you onto cups" and he is like
"OUI, of course you do" and I am like
"well then HOLD STILL!" and he finally stops monkeying around and then later looks at my work and tells me
"eez not bad, work on zee smile a little, this makes me look like I have a, how you say, SMIRK" and later when I am loading the kiln and Georges is watching me put his cups in
"mon ami, you forgot zee tail! How can you forget zee tail!" and I have to admit he is right, but before I glaze I will be coloring his drawings and will try to remember to add a tail too :)

I tried to fight it, but I can't...I have a crush on Georges.

How sweet is that?! A swinging tail and a little dash of red will be lovely. I love your curiously cute little monkey ;o)

You can never go wrong with monkeys, especially when they are *HOT* like Georges.

I'll take Georges over Scott any day. I'm sure he's smarter - Georges, that is.

As a card-carrying Democrat, I hate to admit that I saw what's his name during the race and said, "Boy is he handsome." ... Of course, I still would vote for Quasimoto over a GOP'er any day. ... And have you noticed, they don't use that any more. Hmmm. ... Mug is great, and my Grandmother had a sock monkey in her house, so a fond memory too. :-) Hope you're staying warm. We are on Day 5 of rain in sunny SoCal.
