Yesterday was kind of up and down. You know, some parts were good, some were ok, and some were frustrating and hard.
Although the market was slow, it wasn't bad. I made $88.00 - not too bad for early sping!
There was more styrofoam art. Laura drew this picture of me sleeping on the job. Apparently, while Laura was in the bathroom, I had fallen asleep and a customer, who Laura had previously talked to, had taken one of my tote bags and left $20.00 beside me. I had literally made a sale in my sleep!
We finished one crossword puzzle (ironically it was labeled "The Artist Within") and two cryptoquips. That was fun!
After the market, I met Motria at Hot House for dinner. As usual, the food was delicious and it was great to hang out with Motria!
I invited her back to my place, and we rented Saving Mr. Banks from iTunes and snacked upon leftover chocolate cake from the restaurant.
Both Motria and I really enjoyed the movie. It was so interesting! I had no idea that Mary Poppins was loosely based upon the author's life.
The movie brought up a lot of memories for both of us ... but more for me, I think.
I remember seeing Mary Poppins with my mother when I was a child, as well as watching The Wonderful World of Disney. Pinocchio was my favourite Disney movie, although I also like The Sword in the Stone and I have a vivid memory of putting bubbles on my chin and pretending I was Merlin the Sorcerer.
So many memories filled my head, overwhelming me, making me wish that I had a time machine so I could go back to see my parents again and experience that child-like innocence once more.
And speaking of tumultuous, difficult memories, I was reminded today that this is the anniversary of the death of my friend Aaron Shelbourne.
Bloody hell, I miss Aaron so much! He was gutsy, outrageous, funny, erasible, and totally unforgettable.
I miss you, Aaron! Wherever you are, I hope you're having lots of sex! I love you!
