Lists & Such

1) Prints of ye nautilus painting (which I've hear by dubbed "Nautilus Ice Cream") are at last available in the shop. Woot! The squid companion print shall also be available shortly, perhaps Monday or Tuesday.
2) Went to the dentist a couple days ago (no dental insurance = can't afford dentist = haven't been to dentist in 2 years = cavities). My mumsy paid for my visit as one of those "my-poor-poor-daughter-can't-afford-this-sort-of-thing" kind of gifts, or else I wouldn't have gone. Like I have $200 flying around for that sort of thing. So, I'm very, very grateful. I knew of one bad cavity that desperately needs to be filled, but I also have another smallish one and *gasp* 3 broken fillings??? Uh, I was under the impression that fillings generally last 10 or more years. All the ones in my mouth are less than 6 years old. Hmmmm... Shoddy filling workmanship, perhaps? I wonder if I can somehow get the dentist office to pay for the re-filling of said broken fillings out of their own pocket vs. my uninsured one. Prob'ly not.

3) I may be doing my very first arts & crafts show at the end of the year. Still up in the air, as the target audience at this fair isn't really my kinda crowd, but who knows? My stuff will stand out, which is good, and last I checked the fees were reasonable, and I really just gotta start somewhere, right? It's local, and I'm not really expecting a lot to come out of it, but I feel like I just need to get out and do one, even if it sucks. Just for the sake of showing my work in person, publicly.

4) Watched Alice, by Jan Svankmayer. A very surreal, fantastical, weird, creepy (aka wonderful) little flick that I've been dying to see and just now got to via Netflix (oh Netflix, how I adore thee). I loved it and it definitely lived up to my high expectations. Certainly not a movie for everyone, but if you enjoy slightly disturbed, surreal, arty films, with a healthy dose of glorious stop-motion animation to boot, you must see it. I'm adding another Svankmayer film, Faust, to my Netflix list.

Okay kiddos! That's all for now. Hope your days are filled with jellybeans, old books, squid, and a healthy dose of sunshine!

Yes, this whole experience is actually forcing me to look into getting dental insurance in the future (can't possibly at the moment, but hopefully within the next year or two). And if you're reading, thanks again, Mom, for the dental visit! :)
