life is good again

lost is back on, which means that everything is right again in the world. although many (many) people have given up on lost, we haven't. i see it as a really good, interesting story. so the fact that i don't have answers to a lot of issues doesn't bother. i don't mind the web growing wider and wider. but i guess we'll get answers now, which is ok too.

i found this pic, which will be fun for lost fans. it's a bit tricky to try to figure out who is who.

inauguration day!

it's a great day for sure. i've been watching the inauguration day events and am so happy that we're moving forward. i know that no politician can work miracles, and that no politician is perfect or perfectly good. but i'm so glad barack obama is now our 44th president. i sincerely hope we can make the progress we need to make.

going back to school

i started taking an intro to ceramics class last week. i just had my 2nd class yesterday, and i got onto the wheel again. it's definitely been a long time since the last time (almost ten years when i was a freshman at ricks), but it was fun. i also finished my first project yesterday. it's a pinch-pot that seems somewhat akin to mexican pottery. i'll have to keep that in mind when i glaze it. i think it turned out pretty well, so now i just have to get back on the wheel so i can get that down again too.

brian said that if i can make something as iconic as our toothbrush holder then the class will definitely be worth it. brian has always loved the toothbrush holder i made nearly ten years ago. it has certainly stood the test of time. i only hope i can make another truly classic piece that will be with us until at least 2019...

the best hard rock song ever

so you know that i like best of lists, and i stumbled across vh1's top 100 hard rock songs of all time the other night. we only saw from about 35 down, but i asked brian what he thought the number 1 song would be. he said that it should be guns n' roses's welcome to the jungle. he said if it wasn't welcome to the jungle he'd be really disappointed.

as we got closer and closer to the number one song we both thought it probably wouldn't actually be welcome to the jungle. it would probably be something by led zeppelin or something.

but we were so excited to see that brian was right. we never should have doubted...but hindsight is 20/20. i am so proud of brian!
