Like I don't have ENOUGH stash ...
I had to go and buy more!!! I won this kit off Ebay yesterday and can't WAIT for it to get here, it's "Queen Mermaid" by Mirabilia. I've been watching everyone's progress on their Mermaids and decided I wanted to do one. I was thinking of the Halloween Fairy by Mirabilia but I'm thinking it's going to be this one now. Right next to the Winter Beauty Princess, I should probably get all the stuff for both at about the same time. I'll be busy for awhile. In a good way!
And OH MY GAWD have your seen Gill's finished "Emerald Mermaid" @ Chewed Away ?!!! Incredible, truly. (Sorry, I haven't figured out how to make a link yet. :o)
Cab Driver Story Ahead:
I don't know what everyone thinks about cab drivers, I know I get a lot of grief because most folks are not expecting someone clean, female and english speaking that drives a cab. But almost every night in my car evokes some sort of amusing "story". Here's one from last night:
I get sent to a call at about 11p at a local bar. I go pick up this guy and after greetings he tells me he just can't sleep and wants to go someplace still open where he can see some "naked bodies". I first ask him what sort of naked bodies he's looking for, male or female (Ya never know until you ask anymore!!). And he got VERY offended that I would even CONSIDER asking about male bodies.
(This gets louder as he goes along) "... do I LOOK gay to you? I'll have you know that I'm married, TO. A. WOMAN, and happily for more than 15 years. I don't know why you would even THINK of asking me this. I don't know WHAT'S wrong with you. I think I might just have to call your office tomorrow and make a complaint that you would just RANDOMLY decide to ask me if I'm gay. HOW DARE YOU!!" And on in this vein for about a minute.
I let him rattle on until he wore down and said "Sir, I'm sorry if I offended you, but ONE I didn't ASK if you were gay, I asked what sort of bodies you were looking to see, I don't MAKE random assumptions. And TWO, the bar I picked you up at was a gay bar."
He just sorta stared at me for a bit ... "Uhhhhhh ... what? Really? Oh, sorry. I must be getting old. Just take me to my hotel. I have to go call my wife."
I laughed on that one for the better part of an hour.
Happy Day all!
