give us your one fact and one dream and win a PRIZE prize prize!

Wouldn't you love a May Day card from ME? Something drawn on a card, spring-ish, original artwork??? Of course you would! Go to comments and add your ONE FACT and ONE DREAM and I will randomly choose one of them to receive ORIGINAL AND VALUABLE yet funny artwork by me, in the mail!

My fact, of, so many....well, one fact is that this kiln load of stuff seen below, mostly banks of different types, looks AWESOME. It is cooling and this is a quick look in the top before and after. Another fact is I am thinking that if it is gonna be this warm this morning my bike needs some company and adventure....

And a dream: calm. I dream of calm. It is a beautiful spring but I feel a bit manic. I would very much like sh!t to settle down. Starting with ziplock bags, as many of you know, those things need to CHILL OUT.
NOW YOU go to comments and give us your fact and dream!


You will be thinking "that monster mug below sure does look amazingly awesome" and I won't argue with you. It and its twin, for sale now now at my etsy shoppe!

Fact: people who use words like "zen" and "energy" in everyday speech can either be the coolest people you meet or the most annoying person ever that you bolt away from before they even finish a sentence.
Dream: Last night I was riding on such a great energy that it was difficult to zen out and fall asleep, but after readjusting my sleep asana, I was able to dream a lovely dream wherein I lived Law and Order: SVU.

Fact: I've had a strong NEED to listen to The Who lately. I would say it's just a want, but it's gone past that point.

Dream: My dreams have been like work lately. Where I just wake up and feel exhausted about all I've been doing in my sleep. That needs to stop. I'd like to dream about sleeping or something. Or flying! I haven't had a good flying dream for a long time.
