The Holy Grail

Good Morning, my Bloggy Pals. Today is going to be a short rants!! Now I think that's a first, but I might be wrong. Anyway, today I'll be spending it in the studio working on some new dolls and a piece of art donation for Xico, Inc., the gallery in AZ. They're having their annual big wig dinner and asked their artists to donate a painted guitar for their auction. I emailed them and requested a guitar which I received on Tues. Yesterday, while watching re-runs of "Ally McBeal," I was inspired. It will be a mixed media piece, having a "Dia De Los Muertos" theme, (no, Calista Flockhart wasn't the inspiration...give that girl a sandwich!). However, more on that and my dolls later.

Today in the newspaper, I read in the entertainment section that the production of ,"Spamalot" will be playing at the Plaza Theatre next Tues. Now being a HU-EG Monty Python fan, I really would have loved to see it, but, money being what it is or not, I sadly realized that the ticket prices were a little out of my price range, unless I wanted to sit up in the nose bleed section and see tiny figures on a tiny stage, so I decided I preferred the front row! So this evening, I plan on having a "snack night" for dinner, sweet habanero and cream cheese spread and crackers, queso fundido and my own hot wings (have my own recipe...anyone interested, let me know), and insert my DVD of "Monty Python and The Holy Grail," into the player and enjoy. Lots cheaper and besides, don't have to worry about some bofo carrying on a conversation on his cell phone, I can always put the movie on pause if that happens!! LOL So my friends, have a lovey weekend, even though some of you are under a winter storm warning (in the 60's here today), keep warm and have fun. This evening, I shall be keeping company with "deadly rabbits ("what's he going to do, nibble me bum?"), obnoxious French guards, knights who say, "Ni," zealous body collectors, and politically argumentative peasants." Peace out.

I have wanted to see Spamalot myself when it was in Columbus but the cost made it prohibitive for me ...that is life. We do Monty Python reruns frequently on one of our cable channels so I make do with that. It is freezing here and we have been hit with another snow ....we were inside most of the day so I worked here at home and watched Andy Warhol on the Ovation channel. Send us some of your sunshine please. Imagine Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Hope you post your guitar when you're done. I imagine it will be awesome!

Sounds like you had a great weekend, and yes, I would love your hot wings recipe. I also asked you in another post about the flour you had used in a recipe- you said you had found it at Walmart? Pls don't forget to get back to me on that.

And last, I just wanted to say thank you for the great advice you gave me in re to my earlier post. I really do appreciate your words, and they really make sense.

Hi Georgina! Hmm, I like your recipe night better! :) By the way, I just realized I'm not a follower of your blog--gah! What a ninny I am, but I fixed that real quick. I am looking up some woodburning info for ya!

Georgina, I read that the pangasius fish I made also goes by the name 'basa', and several other names. It's very very similar in taste and texture to tilapia. The fish monger said that orange roughy is one of the best- I've got to try that.

Yes - sounds like fun! you can't beat a bit of MP to lift the spirits:O)

Have a good one!
