Good fortunes - Good night

So everybody gets those chinese fortune cookies, even when you aren't in a chinese restaurant, they give them to you if it is almost any asian restaurant. And it seems that most of us have something that we add to the end of them. Like you will have a great fortune "in bed", of course adding the "in bed" part totally skews the fortune, but it also makes it a little funny.

So here were some fortunes that I heard tonight,
you can add your own phrase to the end of them.

You are never bitter, deceptive or petty
3, 12, 23, 28, 34, 37

To climb the ladder of success work hard and you'll reach it.
7, 8, 23, 31, 32, 44

There is a gradual improvement. Feelings are sweet and tender.
21, 24, 26, 34, 38, 43

Love is a present that can be given every single day you live.
7, 19, 20, 33, 40, 44

A modest man never talks to himself.
4, 22, 36, 38, 39, 46

You have a potential urge and the ability for accomplishment.
8, 9, 13, 31, 35, 38

A smooth long journey! Great Expectations
14, 18, 23, 32, 34, 39

A distant relative will phone you soon.
26, 27, 30, 33, 37, 48

Appearance can be deceiving. Remember endurance makes gold.
11, 14, 18, 22, 26, 41

A modest man never talks to himself.
4, 22, 36, 38, 39, 46

Sassy Pirate girl

Sassy Pirate girl

Thursdays lady in costume, okay so it was really friday when I posted it, but what are you going to do you know, things have been busy, but I use that excuse so often that it might better to call it the lady of the week.

So from here on out that's what I am going for. One girl a week till there ain't no more girls.

So this girl here, fancied herself a pirate. She had the big sleeves the sword and the fancy hat but I am not sure any pirate would have worn the rest of her outfit, but she said she's a pirate and she had a sword so I let her have it.

Overpainting by Dali

I love the fact that when the light hits this piece right you can see that Dali painted over another piece that had a girl in the foreground, to re-use the canvas to do this painting.

A work by DALI

You see this is how the painting is supposed to appear. When you look at it straight on it is hardly noticiable that there is a girl in the underpainting. but...


I suspect it could have been the painting started for either this...

or this. But who knows. It was just really cool to discover that even the artists that are so famous now, once painted over things that they didn't like.

Spending a couple of days in Chicago

Originally uploaded by doornumbertwo.
So I am in Chicago for a few days, taking care of some work related stuff. But I arrived a few hours early today and got the chance to go into the city.

So if you only had a few hours to spend in Chicago where would you go?

I went to the Chicago Art Institute museum, now I am sure that wouldn't have been the choice for everyone but for me it was the right one.

And then to GINO's pizza for some deep dish Chicago pizza.

So in a fit of blind optimism (Superbuck how do you spell that word.) I am going out on a limb and saying that by the end of March we'll have this apt. in order.

So if you see this flag a flying from our front porch, it means a party of some sorts is going on.

Whether it is straight up drinking, drinking and poker, game night drinking/no drinking, or an open invitation to come on up and get the party started.

We now have the flag, all we need is the reason.

Coming in April 2006.

Thursday's lady in costume is GothGirl

So I missed LAST THURSDAY cause we've been crazy busy trying to unpack.

as an apology I have loaded up two girls, although if you've been paying attention I have been blogging one girl, but loading up a few at a time, so you may have missed a few.

And for those of you that are keeping score, I think this one is dressed as an original goth, back when they were Mid-Evil.

This one wanted to be a Goth Girl, I Guess...

But more likely it is a girl who was really proud of her polka dotted underwear so she through together an outfit to show it off.

Tonight at 10:15pm we moved the last box into the new apt. And made the first pledge to purge ourselves of this extra CRAP we keep moving from place to place. I am thinking of starting "ed's List"

PS. Hayden, I accidently buried the CD, in amongst the stuff but I'll find it by the weekend and send it out.

Thursdays Lady in Costume could be FluorescentGirl

Originally uploaded by doornumbertwo.
I have to say this is probably not a real character... But maybe I am wrong here, after all from what little I really know it could be.

But I loved the whole outfit she had on and so I got her to pose with the "dude" mannequin behind her.

She was at ComiCon in San Diego a few years back
