Nails From Long Ago

I haven't had polish on my nails for over a month. My right index fingernail has broken twice, and my cuticles look horrible. So, I will take you back in time a bit.

LA Girl Metal Antique Gold with a Nicole by OPI Brilliant Idea gradient accent

I topped that combo (somewhat haphazardly) with OPI Turquoise Shatter and a full coat of Brilliant Idea on all nails.

Not Monday Muppets

It seemed fitting to allow Jim Henson (with the assistance of Frank Oz) to sing Happy Birthday on his own birthday.

I have been watching a lot of Star Trek lately, which is probably why I'm reminded of the following speech in remembering Jim Henson.
Image of Death is that state in which one exists only in memory

And that leads me to the final stop on this fragmented AV assisted train of thought.

I really wish I could pull my thoughts together a bit more eloquently, but it is difficult to articulate the respect I have for a man I never knew, and harder still for me to  explain why I mourn his loss still today.   I don't worship or idolize him, but genuinely respect him as a fully flawed person capable, with an amazing group of people, to change the world. The changes that really matter, the ones that have a lasting impact, are the small changes made by caring people, for they grow with us. He changed the world with puppets... what will you use?

Things of Which I Should Be Ashamed

The best picture I have of myself is on my driver's license.

Overheard at Fail House

Eli - "You know that frog that's been showing up on the back doors? I'm calling him Ned. I wonder if he's out there now."

*wanders off to look*

"Hey, there he is... and there he is again; there are two of them!"

Eli's Mom- "Well, two Neds are better than one."
