The following is from Robert Breznsy's book PRONOIA and his astrology site Free Will Astrology :
Forgive yourself of every mistake except one.
Create a royal crown for yourself out of a shower cap, rubber bands, and light bulbs.
Think of the last place on earth you'd ever want to visit, and visualize yourself having fun there.
Test to see if people are really listening to you by asserting that Karl Marx was one of the Marx Brothers.
Steal lint from dryers in laundromats and use it to make animal sculptures for someone you admire.
...I haven't done any of these things, well, i guess i've done the third one, visualizing fun in the last place you'd ever want to be...that's easy, the rest are works in progress and I plan to make up a few more as I go along...

I would like to change a small apartment building into a “hotel.” A place for people who like to travel, but also like to just live somewhere different for awhile. Each apartment would have a different feel. Most would contain TVs, computers, stereos, books and a fully stocked fridge, according to the visitor’s likes.
For instance, there’d be an apartment for creative types. Any number of materials to work with would be included for the stayer to play with. They would also be allowed to take their newly made piece with them with the stipulation that material costs are paid for and a good photo of the piece is submitted to eventually hang in the apartment (a $5,000 fee if photo is not submitted).
There’s might be a room decorated completely in the 70s style. All music from the 70s, books, etc. Our Tour Guide would recommend having lunch at a diner or to go to a roller skating rink.
I might also have an apartment designed after a 1940’s apartment in the Bronx. All old appliances, a line for drying clothes…the possibilities are endless.
One apartment, on the first floor, would be turned onto a good restaurant as well as bar with live entertainment friday and saturday nights. There would also be a bar on the roof. You could actually spend your entire time here, if you wanted, but the location would make it easy to get out and experience the town or city without having to drive too much. Oh, and there would also be a resident cat named Poppy who roams the entire place.

my sister and i went to a partylite candle party last night, where they try to get you to buy overpriced stuff you could get at the dollar store...one thing the gal had was one of those reed diffusers that are all the rage these days (god forbid we're not smelling flowers all the time). Well, she wanted forty bucks (!) for them so we were discussing on the way home how we could make our own. Here's what you do: go outside and grab some dead dried-out stalks of anything porous, has to be porous. Bring them in and pour some perfume or essential oil (mix with a carrier oil) into a glass vase, then stick the stalks in and viola! You got yerself a reed diffuser, or dead stalk diffuser, whichever you prefer...in the picture above i used hazelnut cream simmering liquid, not sure that'll work, but I have plenty of stalks to experiment with!

This has been my mother's kitchen wall for, i don't know...30 years? As a child, i couldn't quite figure out what the green thing was, not that i thought about it really, I always kind of thought it was a boxing glove. Why, i dunno, overactive imagination and I really didnt give it much thought, i think i just thought that's what it was. The coral colored shelf has held the mini baskets for as long as i can remember. one of them has many old keys, no one knows what they go to. The picture to the right is called "Status Stew" the recipe is underneath and I think it's got something to do with beef. The latest addition to this ensemble is a small floral done by yours truly.
