Hello cats
my first Sunday off in a long while is going great. We took a walk through mMSGNR Mc G molrick park which is best visited on a grey chilly day. You can really pretend you're in Poland. Then we ate vegan sandwiches with a very pronounced SF track bike flavor, witnesses a big dog with a touch of monstrosity, a black puppy CUTE!!!, walked by "Young Fruit".  Sam Adrian "directed" a performance last night at the sniff & inspect that involved a very realistic demon/possessed & fluorescent orange eatable foam  ? !  Also Friday I was a bartender for a night! It was fun because you could just chit chat the night away but also easy to duck unwanted conversation. All those bills kinda stressed me out though and The only thing is I semi lost my voice which always happens when I go out lately.

Today's Rant

So I've been watching Ted talks on my computer and many have been totally absorbing (like the first one I watched, Julie Taymor, don't laugh, it was AMAZING), some have been mildly irritating (that fat guy who plays "PC" on the Apple commercials; why does he deserve this lecture?), but none have been so I-want-to-shred-my-brain-out PRETENTIOUS and RIDICULOUS (NOT in a good way) as the one I just watched. I HATE ARCHITECTURE!!!!  This woman described this $10 million temporary "pavillion" that basically did what Fun Box did with two borrowed fog machines, a tarp, and a rinky-dink gallery room. She talked about her buildings/projects in a voice just oozing with self-congratulation. Ted have you forsaken me!

PS Sorry fruit stand cat you have to absorb the dark phoenix that I am trying to exorcise as my new years resolution.

Yesterday I saw a claw on the sidewalk, just a claw. Today I saw a man carrying an ice cooler marked, "HUMAN BLOOD".

I saw DIE BRUCKE and BONNARD. Kirchner is obvs the crowd pleaser and rightly so but the secret star of the show was Heckel / Henckel?  His stuff has this very charming "special olympic"-ness. It was basically like Girls Gone Wild (lotsa naked, girls lifting skirts, etc) a century back. Gotta love that lime green! My favorite Bonnard interiors flattened tabletop & windows, funny lazy painted checkerboard and stripey tablecloths, women falling out of the sides of paintings. There's a very nice cat somewhere in there too. Also at the met we saw this woman riding a horse all made of gold that was a secret cup if you took the horsehead off and it was on wheels and apparently it would wheel around the table and whoever it stopped in front of would have to drink from it.  !!  Also we got the most ultimate b&w cookies.
For my job I was asked to write a "bio". Here is mine: 

Donna is a teaching artist and birthday party staff. She is an artist and a human being. She enjoys interacting with children, animals, aliens, and ghosts. She is overeducated in the plastic arts and has read everything published by Jacques Ranciere. Her own work is exhibited right here in the rotten apple but fails to generate any income. YAY Donna!

JK LOLS! I think I'll conveniently forget to write one..

There was a girl on Jeopardy Tournament of Champions today that TOTES has Aspergers. Of course she won. Is this fair?
I saw the most beautiful shiba inu today in a shiny yellow raincoat!!!!!!
He kept shaking to try to get it off.

modes of thought

Thanks Alex for the adventuring! The haul: two patterny dresses, two hippy dresses, one flapper dress, one blouse, a woven thing with a cat on it, a velvet thing that goes around your neck, and a sequined vest. I also got a green balloon from the bar as it was St. Patricks Day.
Also today I broke the no shopping thing with a vengeance: organizer and two pairs of scissors at the Muji store, (Kippenberger with Tim and Peter), (Korean food), (meeting with Paula),my first and most likely only piece of Obama merchandise, a P&P Records tote - special edition at Academy Records, cardamom, coriander, clove, candle, mustardseed at Indian spice store, yellow Zig Zags at the shoe repair, 18x24 screen at Standard Screen Supply, (iced tea and rice krispy treat), giant crochet hook at the Polish craft store next to White Dream.
Whew! I'm out of cash.
PS. Today was especially exciting for Tim also because he found "Donkeys Bearing Cups". Also we were mistaken for undergrads.

sound therapy mind coach

We saw a sign for this today, on our walk. I bought "sensible" shoes and some books. Tim came up with the best name for a band: YUMMY MOON.

more morning weirdness

So this morning I was brushing my teeth and I started spitting out red water. I looked in the mirror and there was blood dripping between my front teeth, it was so bizarre. My mouth got all bloody like a hockey player and who knows where it came from?

almost catastrophic

So guess what? This morning I dropped my contact lens down the sink and let out a cry of "anguish and despair". Then I remembered that our sink is very slow to drain and cloggy, so I got a pair of chopsticks and fished out brown gunk and hairballs and all sorts of nastiness and right as I was about to give up, I found my contact. YAY! Therefore I had a really good day. We made lion masks and house bags at work (It's a house! It's a bag! - that was my catchy tagline).

I've just decided:

I'm going to go back to graduate school to study Postmodern Mime.

C'est chouette!


I'm reading another brain type book and there was a section about languages and I saw the word "boum" which triggered a middle school memory! of watching this wacky teen movie in seventh grade French class called "La Boum". So now I'm on a mission to find it. 
"transformations and attacks"
Also, Breaking News!: shoppers find bags of cocaine in purchased green peppers
Also, some advice: Don't tame foxes because they will stop looking and acting like foxes
, This was proved by science
Also, FYI, the photo directly below is in the German Department Store!!! Seriously have you ever seen anything creepier than toilet seat covers decorated with weeping theater masks? FYI we had to go traipsing around Hamburg looking for blankets our first day there and it felt like some Twilight Zone Scavenger Hunt. Eventually we found our way to, of course, Ikea.
