I've been neglecting posting stuff much of late, most likely due to the fact I don't really have much to say at this moment in time. I've been working on various projects, a couple of bikes, designing a drawing table and some folding tables, and working on some projects for "work" to make life easier over there. We've been busy at the bakery for the last month or so, we recently bought another company and are trying to integrate it into the existing schedule. This is proving to be harder than I thought it would be, but I think I'll figure it out my portion sometime soon. On the plus side, I get a raise.
Back to the personal projects, the bikes are coming along nicely, if not slowly. The cruiser bike is currently being stripped of paint, it had a fine coating of brushed "peach" house paint on it that was originals school bus yellow. The bike is completely torn apart and awaiting the new paint, flat black of course. I'm still collecting some parts for it, just some little things like pedals, springer fork, a new seat and such.
The wooden bike is still in the design faze. I'm working on the dimensions of the frame as full size drawings before I commit to cutting any wood. I should have some of the images up shortly, but I keep forgetting to scan the images.
Not that long ago, I decided that I wanted to recreate a drawing table that my grandfather had that has been in my possession for some time. I don't really need a new drawing table, but I just want to make one for some reason, maybe to bring to the next show I'm in or something. I like the design of this table, simple and to the point kind of thing, adjustable height and angle and that's about it. The plan is to make a few changes, a built in pencil tray maybe, but keep it the same for the most part. This should be done mid summer, depending on how much wood costs.

"Love? What is it?
Most natural painkiller what there is.
William S. Burroughs from Last Words.
For some reason these words keep popping up in my head, I'm not sure why, as I am not seeing anyone. I guess it's just the statement that has me thinking about that kind of thing. I've been noticing people who are in love lately, here and there, and it's got me thinking about my own lack of a relationship. I came to notice that the women I'm interested in are mostly unavailable, married or with serious boyfriends and such.
I've been trying to figure out what my type is; who am I attracted to? It's all a bit confusing, as I think about the women I've dated in the past, not many characteristics are shared, physical or otherwise, so trying to narrow the type becomes somewhat difficult.
I guess I'm just feeling lonely, reinforced by the possibility that the girl I have a crush on may not swing that way, if you know what I mean.
Sucks to be me.

Part of a dream
I met this woman with two three inch vertical scars at the small of her back. I believe she was blond, and had somewhat curly hair. I don't know why or how I saw these scars or why her back was bare, maybe we were walking together and I placed my hand at the small of her back and felt them. I don't remember much else of this dream, except feeling the scars at the edge of my fingertips and saying goodbye.

About a year ago there was this TV show called Wonderfalls, an odd sometimes quirky show set against the backdrop of Niagara Falls. The show was essentially about a twenty-something named Jaye, played by Caroline Dhavernas, an underachieving souvenir shop worker with a philosophy degree from Brown. One day inanimate object, mostly animals with faces, started talking to her. These "muses" gave her cryptic messages that she was forced to fallow and set into motion life changing events in the lives around her, mostly those in need of a cosmic push.
Wonderfalls was canceled after about four episodes on Fox, the network that kills good shows. I was hooked on this show from the get go, it was smart, different from most stuff out there and well written. I added it to my big list of interesting TV programs that got cancelled, not that I have a real list, I just remember these things. In the past few years, I think I've watched seven shows bite the dust for no reason whatsoever, mostly because of terrible timeslots and poor network attention, the reason Wonderfalls was cancelled.
But recently, through the efforts of a loyal fan base, Wonderfalls - The Complete Series is now available on DVD. The entire season, all thirteen episodes, nine of which were never aired in the US. Of course I bought it, watched it over the course of a week and fell in love with it all over again. Unfortunately, I'm now left with this void were the second season should be, but that's ok, at least I've seen the whole season, and it has a cohesive arch that makes sense as an ending of a series or a season. I just want more.
