It is around midnight

     The excruciating pain of getting better at my instrument is only worsened by a fun game I like to play called: watching piano geniuses on the youtube.  This game begins around midnight when I have given up the drill tallying, guide tones, toggling and the crazy jazzy tunes I am suppose to learn - Yo Teacher Tom, I gave you copies of my music for a reason, I don't know how to play this stuff!  

Honestly, I am so obsessed with amazing pianists I had to share a few moments, a few unarguably brilliant moments, that inspire me to learn whatever the hell anyone will teach me.

And on the very last note, I got another review today, first I did not like it, and then I did mostly because it says I am "somethin' different" and I find that funny on many levels.

The Garden in Question

I have garden dreams, and for the first time in a long time I have the dirt, space, and lifestyle for a garden.  BUT....said space is covered in CRAB GRASS. 
This stuff is so terrible I would have spend a ton of energy trying to keep my sweet little plants from being choked.  I am considering other planting options and feeling a little lustful over the perfect vegetable garden.

The best decision I have come up with is to see how extensive I can be with a container garden, here are some photos that inspired me.

Lanvin Love

All ya'll who read the New Yorker may have a new found love for the doughy genius of Alber Ebaz, but I admit that his profile only deepened my love and appreciation for his sweet countenance.  I have been following Lanvin's beautiful clothes with sideways-head since I fell in love with his Spring 2008 show, the flowy vibrant dresses made every fashion magazine and the knockoffs tried to make butterflies of every girl in every town.   His clothing is so technically inspiring, here are just a few of his ensembles from many fall and spring shows, including one pair of shoes that I keep seeing and dreaming about.

My computer is at the doctor, the computer doctor, not the human doctor

So excited that my mac is still under warranty, but they really want to dispute the little bottom latch being under warranty.

Charlotte Street Computers is kind of like the E.R. and the lawyer for computers, especially our beloved Macs!

There are gonna be some really interesting posts when I am reunited with my sweet silvery friend, until then check out:

My blog is a place where I can unleash my world of whimsy on the internet

Right here in these very photos we have the new love of my life.  I have never received a gift given with so much love, thoughtfulness, and inspiration in all my life.  For my birthday, my dear ones Joti, Tyler and Rebeccah  gave me this very special Banjo...and now I am learning how to play it.  Be patient with me world,  I am loving and learning a new instrument at 28!!!

In case you were wondering, that pony is my dear friend, Misty, made by Joti Marra.  If you want one you better befriend her or go here:

Then I decided to add more photos from my big ol' release party, that happened ages ago (a whole month), because there were so many good ones!!  And, you know, Ruslan Tumash took all of these sweet photos

Isn't Evan so very coy?

I love this photo of Michael and really wanted to share it, cuz he is one of my most favorite people in this whole world!

Doesn't it look like Jon is in love with microphone?

Thank you and Good Night
