WeT PaNTS & BeeR STeiNS
The other day my friend BJ emailed me to ask if I was not blogging as often because I was knee deep in all things MUD. I told her I was knee deep in something of roughly the same color and consistency.
It's the start of my Trade Show Cycle which means blogging will be sporadic. The only reason I am writing this morning is that I have No Pants On. My pants, soaked through in a torrential rain storm in which I walked ten blocks carrying a broken Elmo umbrella, are laying as we speak on top of a kiln I fired last night that is currently at about 750 degrees. I am sitting at my desk, at work, wearing a beach towel.
Some of you will wonder why I did not just wear my wet pants and let them dry whilst on my body. I think I know you well enough to let you in on a little personal medical secret; I am ALLERGIC TO COLD. I have a condition known as Cold Urticaria and what it basically means is that if I get wet and cold, I develop huge welts that sting and burn like I'm on fire. So all rain is "acid rain" to me. I really should keep a change of clothing at the office, or invest in one of those Gorton Fisherman outfits.
And before you ask in comments: Yes, I Am, and they are pink with purple flowers, and say Thursday in script on the right hip. Because my Wonder Woman Underoos were in the wash.
So here is a preview of some of the BRAND NEW AND EXCITING STUFF I will be showing starting in Dallas next week (sorry Texas, not going--but Hello Atlanta-see you in two weeks). Today, I want to show you my BRAND NEW GLASS. Get a gander at these beer steins which will be coming to a fine retailer near you soon.
Now, let's go see if those pants are dry...
