Not Dead Yet

Yes folks, I am still alive. Though busy as a one armed paper hanger. or a one handed weaver, whatever works for ya. I have been hangin out at the highland games, weaving some tweed, shoulda been some tartan, but reggae night interfered.
Aside from sewing bags and doing the artist market I have been searching for a job, being artist in residence, and trying to drum up some enthusiasm for life.
Yup, hard to be enthusiastic about yet more impending court dates, putting my education on hold -again, and looking for work that will pay the bills, without the ever lovin response of "if you had your degree..."
Yup, that is the clincher, If I had my degree I could get get a job, if I had a job I could pay for a degree...
The end result is the same. I haven't got a job, I have a huge lawyer bill to pay and an ex with a propensity for litigation paid for by mommy. nice work if you can get it.
A girl could go loonie.
but hey, i do have a duffle bag full of quiviat sp?? well, muskox fluff, and a gig teaching two nights, residency next week and again the first week of september. so It ain't all bad. really.
Well all. gotta fly, and get prepared for teaching the fine citizens of freddy to felt.
ta ta for now
