Revoking Citizenship and Radio Silence

Ah... the Spring - when students begin to crumple under the weight of their load, and Kleenex crumple under the weight of the pollen in the air.

I am a bad friend, a bad blogger, and numerous other things in the Spring. My responsibilities more than double, and I feel the pressure nearly 24 hours a day. It's beginning to wain, and I am feeling decidedly more optimistic about life in general.

Now, that being said, I am about to say something so blasphemous that I am certain that I will be deported from the great state of Pennsylvania immediately. I am kind of glad that THIS THING is happening (click on that link).

I am always sad to see museums deaccession works, but not in this case. I am not a Wyeth fan. Never have been. I don't understand the never ending hype about him. And here in PA, it's seriously never ending.

Oh no, they are here... handcuffs and leg-irons in hand, ready to take me off to another state, or maybe even will send me out of the country. Has Guantanamo officially closed? I hope I am not their last official prisoner... but I fear I may not be so lucky.

Warn your children... the first amendment does not extend to revered and overly exhibited painters! Save yourselves... keep quiet! Yes, I'm talking to you over there... the one about to say something bad about American Gothic or Norman Rockwell... DO NOT DO IT! It willl beeeee bread and water for yoooouuuu.....

Quiz about what you want to be when you grow up:

Today on MSN Careers, there was a quiz to help you figure out what you want to be when you grow up.

Most of my responses were in the area that identified me as:
Your ideal career is probably creative. Possible career choices include: writer, photographer, musician, interior decorator, graphic artist, fashion designer. Of course there are many more careers to choose from, but knowing your preferred type can help you narrow down the choices.

But quite a number of my responses told me that:
Your ideal career probably involves working with people. According to Human Resources Development Canada’s National Occupation Classification, these careers may involve: mentoring, negotiating, instructing, consulting, supervising, persuading, speaking, serving or assisting. Possible career choices include: teacher, human resources, flight attendant, life coach, daycare worker, personal assistant.

This is quite on the mark for a woman that does professional development for artists and designers, that had a lovely career in 3D fine arts, but who writes in her spare time. Quite right.

Wondering what you want to be when you grow up? Take the quiz HERE.
