Funny Face

Sculpture by Nefarious, painting by Shannon… It's hard for me to paint this small because I have to try and time my hand motions between tremors but it's a lot of fun. If my hands were steadier I'd love to make little toys. Maybe I'll go get some Fimo or something.

Nefarious is leaving for California in a few days (come out and be sad). I have no idea if her memory will be as fragmented as mine because I don't really know if my memory is broken because of something like Korsakoff's Syndrome (ie. chronic alcoholism) or if it's something genetic that she could inherit. In any case, I don't want her to forget me so I'm actually quite looking forward to writing kids books and making toys and so on to send her. If you've got a kid that's about the same age as Nefarious let me know when I mention that I've done a book because I think I'll bind a few of them and fantasize that I could actually have a career writing and drawing kids stories.

It was suggested to me that I take all of her old PJs that are too small for her and sew them into a giant quilt/blanket and I thought that was just a wonderful idea — I don't know if that's just my own obsession with memory artifacts speaking or if it's something other people would appreciate?

Well, supper calls.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
