Stuff and Things

I've been absent!  Not much is going on.  As a catch up, here are a few things and some stuff.
 
 
I painted my kitchen which also wraps around to this wall...
drumroll...gray.  "Stormy Day" to be specific.

The gent on the right is my bff for a million years (20).  He's Chris.
 The gent on the left is Chris's new friend, therefore a new acquaintance
of mine, who I hope will be a great friend in due course.  He is also Chris. 
He is an amazing chef--he made us all his own special recipe on this night,
 and it was better than sex.  I had so much fun with these guys. 

This is in an antique store in Louisville.  I sent this picture
to "Bookshelf Porn."

Piper Kerman has made me obsessed with prisons and how loads of
people don't belong there, so I send a box of books every month to
Books to Prisoners.  This one was just started here.  It got topped off
and sent with a donation for shipping costs.  They fit the "in demand"
list, and I hope they help in their small way.

Again with the books...there was a hashtag on Twitter--something like
#booksarentdangerous, and the deal was that you were supposed to
tweet that and a picture of yourself holding up a favorite book,
and somebody somewhere got a free book.  I dunno.  It was a
good thing, but I don't remember details.  This one ended up in
the prison box, but I have other copies.  It's my favorite, favorite
book.



I went to a play at the local college.  I was amused by the "Lichfield" sign
(OITNB fans know what's up).  The girl with the pretty red hair sat back in
her seat when the play started, so her big head wasn't as distracting as
it is in this photo.



Come on.  How cute are these trophy tops repurposed into wine bottle stoppers?

Love this lady in season 3 of OITNB, and am
thrilled that she can now legally marry me in all
50 states.  (LOL).

West Lafayette, for a reason unknown to me, has these bears everywhere (Like Louisville does with horses), and they are painted in creative ways.  This one is by a movie theater that I frequent.  I love it!  You can see the two movies they mashed together.  Pardon the poor camera work.  It was really bright, so I couldn't see the screen of my phone well, and a bee got into the super cool age inappropriate rips in the knees of my jeans while I was filming, and stung the crap out of me.
 
 
Those are all of the stuff and things for now.

EDIT:  It looks like the video will play for me on Explorer, but not on Chrome.  Apologies!  If you can't see it, it's neat.  Picture in your mind a bear painted with The Wizard of Oz and Guardians of the Galaxy mixed up into one glorious...bear carcass?
