sooooooo, i made it through the first round of poker today...and out of 2 separate rounds of play, i ended up with the highest amount of chippage.

'wHHHHHaaaatTTT in THE sam hill??' you ask.

believe me...i'm still rubbing my eyes and scratching my head?!?! call it dumb luck, or maybe it's just because i won chips early on and kept a death grip on 'em until the bloody end. which isn't any reeeeeal suprise...especially if you know me. i'd be the one fighting a rabid rat for a bite of half eaten dill pickle swimming in a pool of urine....um....well, if armageddon hits.

my opponents were top notch, and i was so sorry to see the eliminated go....honestly, being in this group show is a nod to all the artists participating, because each and every one is worthy of a solo show. and today i learned the i-5 gallery (nestled within the brewery art complex) has never hosted a solo show since it opened its doors...so whoever wins this will have quite the resume padding and a big ol' pat on their back from yours truly.

more to follow...pictures and possibly video (thanks to chuckvideo, oh my!)

you just say oooo-all the right things, my sweet, sweet kimmy. i think you know best how much i was stressing about this, and you always calmed my spirits and made me feel o.k.....win or lose. for me, this challenge was MUUUUUUCH more than just competing for a solo show....it was about fighting fears. and hey, any time you wanna learn this whole texas hold 'em thingy, i'll give you a lesson. we'll play with fortune cookies instead of money, k?

you know...i SO wanted it to be fun, and once i got past the junior high fears, it actually WAS. (and i met some really, really cool people, too!) and i can honestly say it would've been JUST as much fun if i'd been bumped..

um...and....expect a call from me this week, too. i really wanted to email you, but just think i'd rather talk...ya know?

i'm tired and cranky now, believe it or not. i have a two hr workshop tomoro and the woman who hired me (who is really nice and i like her and all) kept telling me a map was in the mail for me to get to this workshop site... but have i received a fricken map????? NO. So i'm trying to find a PERfecT map on the 'net and i'm boo hoo hooo-ing cuz i haven't found IT. but i found a so-so map, and i have the general idea of where this park is, so i'm sure i'll be fine and if i leave early enough, i'll find the darn place, but it feels really good to be all pissed off about it, you know?! "What fucking map in WHO'S fricken mAiL?!"
