First post...

Hm. I don't really know what tone to take here, because there are only like 3 people who can read this and in reality only mom will, probably. And it's not like I haven't already told mom all of this stuff... But I will just go for it.
I've been working thirty hour weeks at Lon's Cookin' Shack along with school, which has been crazy, but a refreshing change from the stagnant pool of life without friends. I can't wait for the Turkey people to get home, but at the same time I wish they could hold off so that I would have time to do something fantastic before they got back. I always think I'm going to do something fantastic, but I can never seem to get around to it.
I am working on a project for my Senior Portfolio, and not working nearly enough on the cook book I am writing right now. I am wondering right now what it would be like to sew paper for a skirt I am making for one of my "pieces". I put "pieces" in quotations because it is not even close to conceptualized enough to be a real thing--it is about as close to what it is going to end up as as it was a week ago when I thought I was going to put together a poetry portfolio for my project. But I think that if I folded the seams and used paper, the effect would be a lot better than the cloth skirt I am in the process of making right now. I just don't know if the paper will rip.
I will post pics when I finish something, even though everyone reading this will probably be sick of me asking their opinions, and will have seen basically every step in the process and understand what I am doing just as much if not more than I will.
Sometimes I wonder if I would prefer to scrap book. sometimes I watch those PBS shows about scrap booking where they use "embossing tools" and make tagging stencils, except they are just called stencils and instead of using spray paint they use "airbrushing tools" and they have "tools" for everything you could ever imagine and all you have to do to be a proficient scrap booker is take pictures and buy their "tools".
You know?
I really do think scrap booking is cool. And I think embossing things is probably the best thing I've ever done in my life.
Also, I am reading Catch 22 right now, and I think it is one of the funniest books I have ever read, but also very poignant. I would like to draw a comparison to Superbad, but I have a feeling that might offend some people.
That is what I have to say right now. Sorry this ended up so long.
Love you all.

Are you saying you want an embosser? Thanks for posting. There are always fabulous things I don't know about you. I saw you walking through Lon's today from Bonnie's lawn during the Easter hunt. MoMo gave the Easter Bunny lots of hugs.
