goodwill hunting..

it occurred to me as i was standing in line to purchase yet another purse (i've lost count!) at goodwill today...what must the cashier think of me? for the past month or so, i've come in for the sole purpose of obtaining these fashionable receptacles for my latest project. and, of course, the same man has rung me up at the end of each visit. so, my mind wandered, imagining what he must be thinking..why is this woman so infatuated with purses? maybe she's stuffing them in her closet, waiting for just the right time to wear them. maybe she's re-selling them on ebay..

i almost feel i owe him an explanation. to tell him i don't have a compulsive buying disorder.... i'm just painting purses and putting voices inside of them. i mean, THAT'S completely normal, right?

Next time you leave the counter after buying some, just mumble to yourself (but within earshot of the cashier) "this should hold a 44 magnum just fine!"

oh my!!! i haven't gotten it yet!!!!!!! should i declare postal war?? how long ago did you send it?? i haven't checked my post office box today, but i'll let you know. eeeeEEEP!

and goil, you would do me PROUD if you could swing an entry for this project!!!!!!!! awesomeness. and i've been meaning to thank you upside down and sideways for recommending the photobooth community. not only is it fab, i've picked up a few recruits for the project. YEE!

email me with your progress soon and we'll go from there. i'm accepting MP3 files, too. if you can swing that, your vocals will be done and no need for a recorder. i'm hesitant to do voicemail with you because i've experienced major distortion with another entry (and in your case, i want it to be crystal, since you're so effervescent. hee hee) worst case, i'll mail you a recorder and you can send it RiGHT back. you may not make my first deadline, but that's o.k. this is an ongoing series and i'll be submitting to multiple places. but, i'd LOVE you to be in this first batch if you can. good luck finding a booth today and HAVE FUN!!!!!!

i'll let you know the hot second i get your pack. thank you!!!!

can you tell me the story behind the mini photo you included in the pack? i'm not sure what it is (a finger puppet, perhaps?) also, the tiny plastic baby..scary. did you find both of these, really? if so, i'd like to include them in my next book. i'll be making a section devoted to stuff people have found and given to me. so, lemme know, and give me permission and all that..

cheerio!

just tell him "i neeeed the purses for the voices!!!where do you keep your voices?"
i bet the next time you shop there he wont even make eye contact :)
unless of course he answers you with something like "i keep my voices in my pockets."
at which point you will have a new friend!

I hear voices all the time, but I put them in jars and bury them in the back yard. ;-)
