I recently had the privilege of purchasing the Astronaut Love Triangle’s very first piece of non-performance art! There’s a picture of me and it on their site.
I heard through the grapevine that they might be donating a piece of art to Everybody’s Art Show & Auction, which will be taking place at Irene’s Pub on January 27th. I checked when I stopped in there last night to drop off my own artistic contribution, but I didn’t see theirs on the wall yet. Nevertheless, I remain optimistic. (Note to absolutely everybody: If you want to donate art, it’s not too late. The official deadline has passed, but Pat’s pretty easy-going. Email her for details at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is an art show that is literally open to everybody. Even you and me.)
The Elgin Street Irregulars had an emergency meeting, and the highly entertaining and somewhat illuminating minutes have been posted. (deBeauxOs, you might want to check it out because, among other things, it addresses your question about whatever happened to the Also a Talker blog.)
Also, my socks are fixed! GC and I went to visit Grace on the weekend, and she very kindly tinked back four and a half rows on my sock and one row on GC’s sock, and now they’re both good to go again. I feel very happy about that. Thank you to all of you who offered your help – I will most likely take you up on your very kind offers the next time I mess up.
