Derrrrrrr....

Not feeling like much of a genius right now.

Lots going on, especially reading fior my first assignment which is going OK - maps are done, the bones of the essay are written, just need to flesh it out now. Reading a chapter or 2 in the bath tonight should see me on my way. Just hoping for the spark of Genius to return for my final write up.

Still feeling like Hot Stuff, though. Just so you don't feel too sorry for me. That feeling is here to stay, I think :-)

Not sure what my dad is up to. He keeps telling members of the family that he is affraid to go out and stays in his bedroom all the time. Really? What about going to the shop the other day? Or riding your bike to the Post Office? Or those afternoon strolls you have been taking?

I have a feeling that I might not be immortal any more. There is a saying amongst those who collect toy soldiers - you don't die until you have finished painting all of your unpainted soldiers. As most of us tend to have at least 500 unpainted soldiers in boxes around the house this tends to guarantee eternal life. Sadly, I have been working my way through mine, fighting the urge to buy more. I must be down to the last couple of hundred now. I can feel myself growing weaker as I paint...

Unless you're working at a steel mill, I would cool it with the "I'm hot stuff" comments. Don't want people to get the wrong idea, if you know what I mean.

wigsf - Well I think that anyone seeing my pics will instantly know that I am joking here!

wigsf~the "hot stuff" thing is rather an "inside joke" of sorts and we all know that RC is completely joking when he speaks that about himself...although if I remember correctly it was Terri who bestowed that nickname upon him so she obviously disagrees! LOL! Besides that...any man who treats his wife the way RC treats Mrs. RC...IS hot stuff in my book! My husband included!! :) :) :)

OKAY OKAY OKAY...THAT WAS ME (TERESA)!!!...NOT MY HUSBAND!!! LOL!!! I WAS LOGGED IN UNDER HIM ON ACCIDENT!! HA!!

Rock Chef said...

Teresa - thank goodness for that! :-)

LOL! Teresa's comments are hilarious! I LOVE that she logged in as Chuck and proclaimed how hot she thinks you are! And yes, you are definitely still Hot Stuff!

I admire you for taking classes and persevering. You don't have to feel like a genius. It's enough that you're just doing it and succeeding!

I have been trying to get someone to paint my soldier for years...but I am stuck to doing it myself. I am not such hot stuff...

Rock Chef said...

Terri - Yep, only Teresa could do that! Thanks for confirmation of my status too! :-) And I am succeeding - I just hope for that spark that makes the assignment fly out of my fingers and onto the screen rather than having to dredge it up...

morethananelectrician - Can I call you "Sparky" for short? Keep painting!
