mellicious: pink manicure (fall leaves orange)
I wrote an entry earlier but it is MIA. And I can't even remember what it's about. So you are probably getting a quick collection of randomness, so I can keep up my daily posting. I don't feel very well, actually - my neck hurts. I'm not sure what caused that. I don't think I can blame it on the mammogram I had this afternoon, although I'd like to. I hate those damn things. And I am filled with fear that they'll see some shadow like they did last year, and I'll have to go through all that crap again. Actually, even if they see something, if they say to me what they said last year - "You can go ahead and have a biopsy or you can wait six months and see" - I would be much more inclined to wait than I was last year. Cause I don't really think I want to go through that weirdness again, all for nothing. But we'll see. Hopefully they won't see anything, and it won't be an issue.

So have you guys heard about Baby Grace where you are? It's a big story here, but I gather that it's made the news all over the place. It's very sad, but I can't help but wonder if she'd get this much media attention if she'd had dark hair instead of blonde. Is that being excessively cynical? It does seem to be a pattern, though, in general. (Nothing against the local police at all - it's definitely an unusual occurrence for us. We get the occasional body of a fisherman washing up, maybe, but not small children in boxes. But then I don't suppose that's really usual anywhere, is it? I gotta admit that.)

There is this muted banging noise that seems to come from the apartment next door all the time, and we can't figure out what it is. It's not really loud enough to be terribly annoying, so we haven't worried about it too much so far. Maybe there's somebody like Rob who likes to sit in a rocking chair, and they've got the chair too close to the wall. I don't know. But right now when it's quiet, it does annoy me. I hate to start hostilities with the neighbors, though. And other than this we haven't had any problems at all, so I'm thinking we're lucky, even with the banging.

As far as the ongoing posting of quilt pictures, I got one category done (Portraits) and I should be able to get another one up before I go to bed (that one will be Mixed Technique).[profile] quiltingpirate, among other people, got her pictures up faster than I did (and she took almost as many, I gather) but hers don't have labels on them yet - and for that matter since she is planning on putting up labels that puts her ahead of a lot of people. I have gotten rather obsessive about having everything labeled properly. I mean, if somebody else was going to post a picture of my quilts, I would want my name on it! A lot of people do put up pictures without knowing whose quilts they are - so I'm not picking on Toni because I gather she does know - and for that matter I am not judging any of the people who do it, really, because it's a lot of trouble to keep track of. I should know. But I personally feel better about posting them if I do them that way. And especially with the large volume of pictures I post, I feel like I should hold myself to a higher standard where I can. (I am now over the 3000 picture mark in Flickr. Not all of them are quilts, of course, but I would think a good half of them are, at least.)

I am tired. I should stop before I make somebody mad at me.

mellicious: pink manicure (Xmas light gif)
Shelly Sikes disappeared twenty years ago today, after finishing up a shift at Gaido's Restaurant in Galveston. The next week, I started working at Gaido's. I met my husband there. Oh my god, I can't believe it's been twenty years.
