Anyway, I promised Weaver that I would take the blog to a higher level so here we go. You should be getting a stone-related post soon (I know how much Mise looks forward to them), because today I am going to the yard which has my 4 ton block, in order to give them a cutting list for the latest masterpiece. Stone being stone, however, 'soon' could mean anything from 2 weeks to 2 months, but I am also carving a couple of Corinthian capitols, which should impress the hell out of you.
There are only 2 ways to win the heart of a fair lady though - make them laugh or make them think you are intelligent. I have learnt from experience that making them think that you are good at your job only serves to give them a false impression of your earning capabilities, and consequently think that you could be a safe bet for the future - if you still have one.
Oh, and I heard from my cousin today that the doll she paid so much for has - it turns out - mismatching arms, so the seller is getting it back and refunding the money in good grace. I have had mismatching arms since I was born, but my mother never got a refund.
I am hanging around at home for a little longer than normal today, because I called the seller of the expensive candlestick on his mobile last night and gave him a hard time. He said he had posted it yesterday, and I would receive it today. I bet he wondered how I got his number. He's going to wonder how I got his address and details of his occupation too, if it does not arrive by tomorrow morning.
I have to go to Germany next week on a flying and unexpected visit, so I really need to get that stick well before tuesday. It also means you will have a little break from my incessant witterings, so that's something else to look forward to.
