ďIf all men knew what other say of them, there would not be four friends in the world.Ē - Blaise Pascal
Ah, but we say these things because we CARE. And because itís deliciously sinful and fun to pick people apart and analyze freely in ways that you just canít when youíre speaking to someone directly. Because most people canít handle the cold, hard truth of what we think. Which is why we pretty it up and deliver it in a nice, palatable package. But I digress from my morning thoughts. Weíll get back to shit-talk and judgment another day.
For now, I must brag. Last night was my last U.S. Constitution History class. My fourth perfect score on a paper (no points deducted for any area of writing, be it content, grammar, etc.) was handed back to me, and on it was written, ďAgain, you have written another excellent, well-developed paper. WELL DONE!!Ē That couldnít have made me happier. This was my paper on a proposal for a new amendment defining marriage as that between two adults, regardless of sex, transgender, etc. When I left class at the end of the night, he intercepted me and said, ďAll of your papers have been superb, incredible.Ē I thanked him with a grin and left the building still smiling.
But I bet youíre wondering how the gallery opening went. I know you are. It was PERFECT. A steady flow of people for the entire four hours. A spectacular spread by Cafť W, wonderful help from friends and family, and of course, we were all fabulous. I have prospective buyers lined up to follow-up with, and my excitement for this only grows. What a success! The compliments were gushing, both for M.s. as the magnificent artist, and myself, as the galleryís Mistress. As M.s. put it, ďpeople were effusive with their praise.Ē I think San Diegans are ready for a national-level gallery, and I think weíre just the people to bring it to them.
I just burned my tongue and throat on tea I did not realize was still BOILING. Ow. Iíve burned my tongue in the past, sure, but never have I sipped something so quickly that was so scalding. My throat feels... stripped. Iíll see how this develops.
But again, I digress. Iím busy, but Iím doing well. I keep heading a cold off at the pass, and I think Iíll be fine if I stay ahead of it with vitamins and liquid. I donít have much time to stop and think anymore. But Iíll make some soon.
