. . . more anal-retentive than I am!

It cracks me up that people think I'm this perfectionist queen. Reality is, I'm good at the overall concept, and can pretty well get things where they should end up.

BUT, I have no friggin' patience! I can only play with something so long before I just gather it together, throw it in the general position it should be, and say, "Good enough!"

It's the TinMan coming behind me and straightening, fluffing, balancing - generally making it as intended - that really makes all the impact.

So, here's to all the anal-retentive folks among us who show us all how it REALLY can be done!

"Play, darling. Just please play.:

Oh, I'm 'playing' all right - hell, I'm the one in charge re: Thank goodness for people . . .

But, I run through like a whirlwind, and he follows behind making it all 'perfect'.

My playing is in the conceptualization - I just don't get any thrill from the ultimate execution.

That's why I was always happier - and better - as a supervisor.

But I never tried actual execution work. THAT I might have enjoyed re: Thank goodness for people . . .

re: Thank goodness for people . . .

Jacking my own thread.

I ALMOST bought one of the original posters of this from a gallery in Carmel I was at recently - but $28,000 for a poster is a little steep, even for me.

But I DO LOVE it - and Absinthe . . .

Curious - Isn't Absinthe illegal in America? I knew nothing about it until watching a documentary on it in the 1800's - 1930s on PBS. Very fascinating - how it's made, etc. I mean, how bad can it be?!
