Obsession Is A Sin

I am completely and utterly in love with this painting. Love it. You know how I feel about vibrant colors. I adore them. I don't even know what kind of flower that is but it's gorgeous! I think about this painting for hours a day. I kind of need it. So I'm pretty sure I need to buy it... but how do I justify the minor extravagance of even the price of the print? Leave your suggestions in the comments... lol.

I have so much cleaning to do. Argh. I need some real sleep. I haven't had any in about two weeks. You know my relationship with that phone. I've been sleeping in shifts a few hours long. That's also partly because I am working a lot. Oh work. You may me want to become a cutter with your long, long hours. Saturdays and Sundays seem to be getting longer. I'm no spring chicken you know. 11 hour days start to wear on you after a while-- you know 2 years.

One of my fave coworkers Cat, you know the one moving to Myrtle, had her going away party. I dragged myself out of bed after hitting snooze for about an hour to go even though by the time I got there I could only stay for about 20 minutes. Turns out it's probably for the best, though, since I wasn't drinking. It's pretty hard to stand in a bar with people who are nearly levitating and you're not drinking JUST because you have to go to work. Hahaha. I am sans social life. It's quite sad. But I will survive. Oh as long as I know how to --- (what's this word? Love?) I know I'll stay alive. Then Rashan, La and Joy had to go and meet, further ruining my life. I WANTED TO MEET LA AND JOY BEFORE ANYONE ELSE!! THAT'S NOT FAIR!!

My sister is coming on Tuesday. I think I'm gonna make her go see the dueling dinosaurs with me. I'm gonna try to use my 4-year-old student i.d. and she will definitely be pulling out her fresh one so we can slide some extra dollars off of the price! Don't call me cheap. If you do, you're just jealous. I want to go to this middle eastern restaurant, too since it's near there. That menu! The prices are so great I want to order like 15 things and make her try them all with me. It'll be great. I can't remember if she likes adventurous (i.e. non-"American") food. I think she does a little.

Ooh! Daddy should take us to Kaya for Daddy-Daughter Day this week. She should like that. Good times. He's so excited to have his fabulous daughters with him. I gave him his father's day card yesterday since I knew I wasn't gonna see him today and he was so excited. It was too cute. I'm the thoughtful child. I know that sounds vain but that's the consensus from both parents and my sister, so there. Not that the other one's not thoughtful, but I'm amazing. Nah mean? Hahahaha.

the joy said...

Stace I'm sorry!!! Ok Jameil you got 2 options. We can meet in CT or in atl. I'll be in ct soon(?)... Also, yes please go to sleep. You know wha happens if you don't? You go crazy-er!

Sandy C. said...

Wow! That is a gorgeous painting. The price tag stings a bit, but this is how I see art (and jewelry). If it's something you love and will cherish for years to come, (and don't purchase often) buy it if you can.

Rashan Jamal said...

Its not my fault if Joy and La have the good sense to like me better. LOL

You're mad old, Jam. Can't handle a few phone calls now? Need sleep? "Sleep is for the weak." Jameil 2008

Have fun with your sister. I'm laughing at the 4 year old student ID. Think my 11 year old ID will work? I still have it, ya know!

$475 is a minor extravagance? I call it rent!! Lol.

Also, I want to go to the musuem!! There is nothing culturally stimulating here!! Unless you like alligator farms and I've been to those.

Sparkling Red said...

That painting is lovely. Here's my justification: think of all the money you've saved by not going out or on vacation because of your crazy work schedule. You should put some of that towards something else enjoyable, for example, perhaps this very painting! It's like a vacation for your soul.

Happy Father's Day to your Daddy. I bet he loves having his girls around him. :)

Dueling Dinos sounds like fun. You need me to send the Tali's up for a weekend?

SimplEnigma said...

1. It's Monday. Where's the big announcement?

2. Re: painting justification: The painting makes you happy. You can't put a price on happiness.

3. Daddies rock.

4. You made that big announcement yet? Sheesh.

Opinionated Diva said...

The painting...beautiful...but too much. I think you need to niggarig you a copy, by having Kinkos print it on a canvas and then just framing that badboy!

Kaya’s menu seems delish…those Jamaican jerk wings and the tropical paella are calllllllllllin me mayne!

Must I say something scandalous to get today's post out of you. hmmph!
