CMH did it to me

New Puppeh?

About 2 years ago, I started working a 6 year old American Saddlebred Stallion, barn name of "Rubbish". I had no intentions of getting a horse, but we ended up adopting each other. I don't like stallions: They're agressive, need tons of work to keep from getting bored, especially during breeding season, they can be mean, they can't be worked around mares, and all in all they're often assholes.

Except Rubbish. Rubbish is mischievous to be sure, but for the most part, we're wild about each other. I call him Puppeh (Puppy). He was meant to be my big gaited show horse, but instead it looks like we're doing dressage. (Think ballroom dancing on horseback). The only drawback is that I have to keep him at the barn out in Forest Grove (at least it's by work, so I see him 5 times a week).

He's keeping me happy and poor.

Teaching the mud

So, for the past 4 months, I have been a ceramics teacher and studio manager at Valley Arts Association. I am FUCKING LOVING IT. My students rock, and the classes are going very well. I take Mondays off, as I work weekends: Saturday at the barn, and Sunday at I teach. Of course, "Taking Mondays Off" ACTUALLY means that I don't drive the 30 miles out to Forest Grove, Oregon. I just work my butt off in town. Of course that "working my butt off" doesn't actually apply to things I SHOULD be doing, like HOUSEWORK. I'm rarely home, and when I am, I'm either stuffing my face, in the bath (drinking wine and re-reading a favorite book) or in bed, trying to stuff 9 hours of sleep into 6 hours. STILL, outside of needing a regular BF or FWB, I'm quite happy.

Say whut?

That moment when an old boyfriend, a minor celebrity in the gay circles (vocal and fitness model and wanna be author {terrible: couldn't read a whole page it was that bad}) has a online profile entitled "Hung4head" and talks on how he likes to satisfy "Power Muscle Bottoms". And I'm like HUNG?!? HUNG???????? Since WHEN? Is there a surgery for that??? HUNG????

FB_IMG_1401463802663Just a short note. LJ is getting more insistent about me remembering people on here, and since there's things I don't care to talk about on FB, I may once again start posting bits here, and bore you all to tears with links to my new studio work. Yep. I now have a clay studio, and am working in the mud of my choice.

Happy

It is the 14th of December, at 1pm...and I've just now made enough this month on my artwork sales alone to cover all my bills: Next month's rent, Utilities, truck payment, insurance payments, food, credit card payments: All covered. CALL ME AMAZED.

Granted, December is a big sales month for everybody, but still. I am thoroughly chuffed. This is fantastic.

BACK TO WORK!

sick

Very sick all day. Basically spent the whole thing in bed. I've just eaten my first thing today: A bowl of soup. Totally craving ginger ale, 7-up, and jello. Not driving anywhere, though... Ah well. Tomorrow is another day.

Friday: Post Valentine's bitter subconscious.

I made it through Valentine's day fine, outside of forgetting to eat until 2pm, and unceremoniously sitting down in the mud from the effects of a blood sugar drop.

After grabbing a salad, I biked home 41 miles (first big ride of the year). Had some yoghurt and a bath, and went to bed early (10pm...INCREDIBLY early for me)...

I had a dream where friends had taken me to a fancy restaurant for my approaching birthday (45 of the 25th) and the only thing I could eat there was a plate of lettuce. My subconscious was obviously feeling very put-upon.

This morning, I got sent a link of a commercial from "John Saint Denis"... if you're unfamiliar, they do these adverts for their "Candles and Vintage" which are very gay friendly, featuring a remarkably handsome man of certain age and his hither-to unseen male partner...

We get to see "partner" this new commercial. He's a pretty boy about 22 with frosted, poofy hair. I thought the commercial was LAME & TRITE, (although pretty). I strained something from the extreme eyerolling. Maybe it's a European thing? This need for spouses barely out of secondary school once you hit 40? I dunno.
