Must. Get. Out. Of. Bed.

There's a Roseanne marathon on Oxygen!!

Alright, time to be productive... I'm off to visit the store than is my ultimate love/hate relationship -- Metalliferous.

Didn't make it to the casters... that sucks! I did do a load of laundry, cook my veges for the week, go grocery shopping and some other random stuff before work this morning.

Even as I cut my "formal" work hours more and more (I'm down to 2 1/2 days a week! woo hoo!) I still can't seem to find the time to finish everything that i want to accomplish. I've got a paper due tomorrow and a midterm on Tuesday. Considering that it's June, that just seems f#*ked up!

Yesterday, i ordered a funky RED blender from -- on sale and free shipping!

That was only after some serious blender drama went down at the Homemark. I bought a $25 blender at this local mom and pop store in Astoria. Take it home and, suprise, suprise it's a piece of CRAP. When I went to return it, the store manager insisted that, if he could get the blender to work, I would have to keep it. It was SO ridiculous. Then he went out and bought a bag of ice to prove that the blender would blend ice. Of course, it didn't work any better for him than it did for me. The whole episode was insane. Bottom line, sometimes it's NOT such a good idea to keep your money in the neighborhood. I seriously doubt that Target would have challenged me to an ice-blending competition before i could return an appliance to them!

Working on a new ring -- right now, it's just some sketches and a blob of unfinished wax. But trust me, it's gonna be fab. Also finished the Sprout version of bling -- that would be the diamond design I carved out last night. Taking it to the casters tomorrow!

See the diamond in the foreground, resting on my benchpin??

Other highlights of the week: 1$ pints of raspberries at the cheap fruit stand and seeing GORILLAS at the Bronx Zoo!!

And a great pic from Crawfish fest... Mikey D makes friends with his lunch:
