I got a rock

I did, I did!

FRANK has their annual "Sweetheart Trunk Sale" yesterday.  I missed it last year, but Sudie sent me an invite, so I roused Kent the his stupor after The World's Grossest Breakfast (waffles topped with margarine, syrup, a fried egg, and cheddar cheese.  And I'm culpable because I made the damned thing.  BUT HE ASKED!) and we went together.

Now, Sudie Rakusin (http://sudierakusin.com/ if you want to see her stuff.  She's brilliant!) has been a major influence on me since college.  Her art is transformative.  A mentor of mine in college gave all of the members of The Women's Center a copy of The Coloring Book for Big Girls for International Women's Day one year, and it was one of the most beautiful things I'd ever seen.

Fast forward a lifetime, and here I am, dumped on my ass in Chapel Hill.  And she's doing a salon at FRANK (this was shortly after I discovered that The Sun's offices were here.  I really was meant to live here).  She was doing one card draws from her new tarot/saints deck, and I asked for one.

I got The Wanderer.  It fit so well for what I was going through at the time.  I started crying and she didn't flinch.  She just gathered me in the gentlest hug.  I think I fell in love a little that day.

Anyway, one of the things she had for sale were smooth, polished stones with whimsical hearts...they're so pretty!  Kent bought me one as an early Valentine's gift.  I have a piece of her artwork that I can actually hold in my hand!  How cool is that?

It was a very Chapel Hill-y day.  Lunch at Cosmic Cantina, drinks a Blue Horn Lounge, and we stopped by Flyleaf for their member sale so Kent could use the rest of his gift certificate.  He got Bill Smith's book on Crabs and Oysters, and I got a Slaughterhouse Five tshirt.  Very cool.

Today is Superbowl party food making.  Which means, essentially, I make deviled eggs and Kent does everything else.  :)

Happy Sunday, y'all!

Huh. It works fine for me. I'm sorry.

Her 3D stuff is amazing. It's so surreal that I can see it close up (the level of detail is jaw dropping). And that she actually knows me by name! <3


The fucking YARN FAIRY!
