I Should Be Working

...but no one else is.

So, in between filling of kleenexes, I am doing a bit of web surfing.  A few weeks ago I bought a stack of wooden cabinet doors at the Habitat for Humanity thrift store.  They are great for painting signs.  I've been checking out my woefully incomplete collection of quotes on Pinterest in hopes of finding one to paint this week.

I found the one I want, but it is super long for fitting on a cabinet door.  And the source is one that's never been a particular favorite.  And yet...

"I am old now: gray, wrinkled, tired, and bloated, and my joints ache, too.  But I am ready to come into my full destiny - as my childhood dreams predicted - as a Neo-Amazonian Pirate Queen of my own vessel:  firing cannonballs at the worldwide culture of patriarchy in the name of all that does not suck."  - Roseanne Barr

So.  I think I will have to practice and find a way to make it fit.  And I will brandish my paint brush in a sword-like fashion while proclaiming various nonsense loudly "in the name of all that does not suck".  

And thankfully, no one else will be around to hear me, thus preventing an unplanned side trip to the loony bin. 

Therefore, in honor of piloting my own Neo-Amazonian pirate vessel, I think I will leave early for lunch.

Just now reading this! Did you do the quote on the cabinet doors or on paper? I will have to go look! I hate that you left out the first sentence about being old now!
