Slim pickins’ in NYC today

Four hours this afternoon scavenging in the lower east side yielded few new stickers and next to nothing in terms of political stickers regarding the 2008 election.  I got a great sticker about Sarah Palin, but really, during the entire day we saw only 1-2 stickers about McCain and 1-2 about Obama.

There was an Obey-like wheatpasted poster of Palin that I’ll post a picture of later.  Very tasty.

NYC sticker action tomorrow

Caveboy, Caveboy, Jr., and I are going to Manhattan to collect stickers tomorrow.  I haven’t been into the city in months (ack), so I’m hoping there a bunch of new/political ones.  Plus, I really need to change the order of my data fields in “The Gallery Has A Posse” so they appear in the right order via Encore.

Way too many !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :/

One of my sisters (who now has a very cushy high-paying executive job at the Harvard Business School) told me to never use exclamation points.  She’s right, but I get excited sometimes and can’t help myself.

That, plus in my book, one should never use parentheses.  If you take them out, the text is always stronger.

See what I mean?:

“My sister, who now has a very cushy high-paying job at the Harvard Business School, told me to never use exclamation points.  She’s right.  But I get excited sometimes and can’t help myself.”

See?  Parentheses are typically un-necessary.  Commas do the trick just fine.  (Please, I am dying to use an exclamation point there.)


Very exciting news!

I designed a new header for the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery blog.  I’m also getting bored with all my “time off” this week!!!!!!!

Hello, sticker ninjas of the world.  I woke up at 3:00 a.m. to find the wood stove had died out, ERGH.    if I do end up heading south for break, I’ll keep you posted on the stickerkttty front!

Enough already with the soccer mom

From Dick Cavett in today’s NY Times Opinion section about Sarah Palin, the “wild wordsmith of Wasilla”:

“My concern has been the atrocities there in Darfur and the relevance to me with that issue as we spoke about Africa and some of the countries there that were kind of the people succumbing to the dictators and the corruption of some collapsed governments on the continent, the relevance was Alaska’s investment in Darfur with some of our permanent fund dollars.

And, she concluded, ‘never, ever did I talk about, well, gee, is it a country or a continent, I just don’t know about this issue.'”

Stickerkitty is going to NJ/NYC next week on the lookout for political stickers.  Let’s hope for a warm spell, so the stickers can be easily liberated.
