I can't make a lion head... I can't. I want to but it looks like an elk or a bad kindergarten version. This is for WOW not your local community craft show. ARGH!!! Whose stupid idea was this???

I don't know if I am anymore interesting but I am feeling happier...
The show opened. Done.
I am officially unemployed for the first time in over a year. Very unusual for me. I need the rest. So far in the two days I've been home I have had 3 naps a day. This is partially due to my back though.
I had a stiff back friday and woke up with it still there saturday. I thought i was getting a flu it was so achy. But I did some stretched and popped a few things back there only to discover the biggest knot I have ever had. By the time I had done my stretches I couldn't even bend over to put my pants on, forget picking up my car keys off the floor. The dictator had a good laugh or two at my expense. I had a lunch date with all my olympic buddies (it was so good to see them again) minus the boys and managed to sit through that. But by the time I got home I could barely get out of Cathy's car. AHHH! Lot's of heat and ice and the dictator beating me up - I mean - massaging me and it loosened up a little. I can get to the floor today SLOWLY. It really hurts though, just touching it feels like a huge bruise on my back. Tomorrow I will go find some professional help. Chiropractor or something.
I've been doing a bit of beading on my wearable art but not much else due to the lack of movement. The puppies are always happy to have a family nap though....
Not much else is new. Planning the wedding - found a new planner who is great. Had a sit down with the dictator to go over a few things he's all over it and as excited as me. Things are starting to come together..... Now I'm trying to get some people together to go fake wedding dress shopping. I wanna be a tacky bride!
anyways. happy. Tired and happy. But I have time to sleep now.

I am so bored. I am sitting outside of the theatre with nothing to do. Don't get me wrong there are things I could do. But I'm not. It's preview night, I'm overbudget and I'm tired. It's over. I just have to look over a few changes tonight and hopefully all will be better. Sigh.
I should have gone home this afternoon. But I didn't.
Can't wait to stay home tomorrow. I have much wearable art to do. So behind it is sad. Hopefully I will start making it like crazy next week.
I wonder if I need a ticket to see the show tonight. Hmmm maybe they won't let me in and I'll have to go home.
The dictator and I are sitting down this weekend to go over wedding things. We need to start giving the planner some actual figures. Exciting. Hopefully we can do it on a baby budget. I still can't decide what direction to go with my dress. We think We know what the dictator will be wearing. We will buy it this summer in case it isn't available next spring when we need it
ok I should go down to the theatre. Check in and waste so
e time.
Thanks for listening. I'll try and be more interesting next time.

From Wearable Art

working on my wearable art again. Gosh it goes slow. Especially when you spend most of your time pinning decorations on and not actually sewing the structure. I got some missing bits yesterday (elastic, bias tape, zipper) so I could actually finish this section. We'll see how long that takes. I'm in dress rehearsals every night this week. BLAH.... Not looking forward to it.
But then next week I can be wearable art full time! YAY! Got to get it done. Deadline fast approaching.

so I'm at the cafeteria in BC place grabbing a bite of food before it closes and the madness of the opening ceremonies for the paralympics starts...
I order a quesadilla. The food at BC place isn't great at the best of times but a person needs to eat. When everyone in front of me ordered the serving lady asked if they wanted vegetables with it. So when she turned to me and said "would you like..." and paused, I said " sure whatever it is I'll have it" I assumed it was a brain fart - couldn't remember the word vegetables. Then she turns around and says " tortellini" I start laughing and say "sure" There was no tortellini on the menu and why on earth would she offer me that. The woman behind me in line is laughing too - we both think it is a funny joke. UNTIL she turns around and gives me a plate with a quesadilla (that had bean sprouts in it - WEIRD) AND a HUGE helping of tortellini....
Yah. Bizarre...
I ate it. It was better then the quesadilla. But man.
I'm not going to miss BC Place food. Not even a little bit. Not those boxed lunches. NONE OF IT.

I got to dress Terry Fox's parents last night. That was cool - they were such sweet people.
Today it is 4:00pm and I am still in my pjs. Not getting dressed doing very little. The amount of running around you do dressing people in a venue like that is insane. I had people on the third floor and people on the main floor. Half the time you can't use the elevators because the governor general is taking them and there is no staircases - just ramps which take forever... Yah. My feet were and still are killing me. Probably time for another nap....

No more olympics for me. I think I am finally done. It was fun but man I need a rest.
From opening/closing ceremonies.....

I swear I tried to make their mittens look nice but they kept taking them off...
