more silliness for a Sunday....

(pottery and ornaments by Gary Rith)
Julie lives around the corner, and last week she emails at like 6 am "I need frog mugs for my brother, is there still time?" and I am like "I can make 'em and fire 'em real quick, in the baby kiln" and at the same time Tiffany is like "I need ornaments" and I am like "WILL DO, right now, then fire them in the baby kiln". Tiffany, of course, is mother of the famous baby Alex, and YOU KNOW I had to make a baby Alex Santa ornament.
Julie's story was good "my brother does NOT like cute stuff, but we have a frog bowl of yours, and he was visiting. We were using it, and he just loved it! So we thought he would like frog mugs". See that is the thing, we can convert even people who hate cute to love my work.

You know I am doing this 10 ten day thing, right? List below. Today is 6 things I wish I hadn't done.
Good lord, I canNOT think of a single thing. I must perfect. :)
(I have never impregnated anyone, failed a class, been kicked out of anything, killed or physically hurt anyone, been arrested or developed any addictions: by that very low bar, I am a success, am I not?)

Superb video here.

Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.
Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever)
Day Seven: Four turn offs.
Day Eight: Three turn ons.
Day Nine: Two smileys that describe your life right now.
Day Ten: One confession.

I love converting non-pottery people into pottery people. Eventually they'll all be pottery people and we'll be in HIGH DEMAND. :D

LOL, if all else fails, lower your standards! :)

Your list of what you haven't done is pretty good, actually. Wish more people could say the same.
