I was meant to be working tonight and getting some of my projects underway, but I made the mistake of buying one of those little half bottles of wine at the supermarket on the way home. It was Chianti and my reasoning was that if I had just a couple of glasses then I would be fine and I could do all my work. But no - SOD and I drank the little bottle and then wanted more. SOD went down to the diary (they sell wine!). So here I am, with a tiny bit of work done and a little on the drunk side. If feels nice - it's been a while. But how will I feel about it in the morning?

Anyway - on the work side - the film festival programme goes to print on Friday - the files need to be off in the ether around 5 in the afternoon. It's still in the process of being scheduled - and one film in particular is still being waited on - will we get it or won't we. And I can't tell you what it is, but I CAN tell you that it's very important in the scheme of things. All in good time.

Have been listening to the latest Boom Bip - Blue Eyed in the Red Room. I downloaded it with the wonderful SoulSeek, but really really want the real thing. I think Boom Bip is my musique du jour, but am experiencing a wondrous rebirth of Bailter Space. What does Bailter mean?

Fucking with signs

This a sign SOD and I saw on our holiday travels not so long ago on the back road along Queen Charlotte Sound.

And here's another example of creative sign additions I was emailed today.

Bridget Riley

Anyone living in Wellington should definitely try to get along to the Bridget Riley show at the City Gallery.

Here's a taste:

Eye-assualting genius. Take some dark glasses and panadol.

Actually, make an evening of it, like I'm going to do and catch the sublime music of Seht at one of the City Gallery's Late Night Sessions (god, aren't they getting so hip at the gallery!?).

My street art blog

Just updated the old ARTONTHESTREETS, and it's been quite some time since I did that. Nice to put some new stuff up.

I've just spent Mothers Day working, but did manage to crack open a bottle of bubbles tonight. A nice celebration because a.) it was Mothers Day and I'm a mother, and b.) SOD has just moved back in with me so it is all Happy Families. Hurrah!! It wasn't just any old bubble either, it was a bottle of Veuve Cliquot that my printer gave me a while back because he hadn't managed to take me out for a Christmas lunch.

Been working most of the weekend. It's been kinda nice 'cos I'm feeling as though I am almost caught up with my work. And I've been happy with my creative levels - not something I can always say, but at the moment the ideas are flowing. Thankfully.

I'm now at the beginnnig of my film festival work - I received the first bunch of film blurbs for layout on Thursday. The next two months are going to be scary and crazy. But strangely I look forward to this time of year. What the hell is wrong with me? Do I have some freakish masochistic tendencies? Let's not go there.
