Bright ideas...........One would think that after playing several hours with Lili's step son Je, SLH would had been tired out.
Oh no, not my cat.
SLH still had to make sure he wasn't missing anything after the girls and I finished our dinner. He got a wee bit too close to those floating candles........
Also, you'd think that after repainting my bedroom & kitchen; I'd had enough.
Oh no, not me!
Pudd'ns room was painted a few years ago, but it was a rush job. It was a light blue and to me the color looked faded. Plus, you could see every hand print or dirt mark on it. I get the bright idea of repainting his bedroom.
Why not? I'm off at nights now and I still have those gift certificates buring a hole in my wallet. I pick out a really cool paint sample that is a bit darker blue. The paint has "granite" in it and you can also add these cool little sparkle things to the paint. To me it looks like you are looking at the ocean when the sun hits it. It is a subtle sparkle and I'm thinking it will go nice in Pudd'ns room.
I get everything ready, Pudd'n is at grandma land and Steve is running errands.
This paint goes on thick.
This paint does not look blue.
This paint looks more purple/blue.
And all those little granite pieces? Those fuckers fly all every where.
I'm still picking little purple/blue flecks out of my hair (I was too tired to wash my hair when I was done).
And of course this isn't an easy paint job. You have to do 2 coats and the 2nd coat you have to brush the paint in an X formation; insuing that more granite flecks will be thrown about.
Now as I put Pudd'ns room back togther it is even more blantantly obvious that what I thought was a blue paint was not (hey, the color is even called "Blue Star Quartz").
I'm ready to stick a fork in my eye....................
