The title has nothing to do with my post except that it's a line from a song on one of my favorite movie soundtracks-I can't remember much about the movie, but I got the soundtrack and drove everyone nuts by insisting that they listen to the whole thing with me and my commentary-(think of me as the liner notes).
Anyway, with Arti-Gras two days away I've got the lyrics to one of my favorite Mardi-Gras songs in my head. I''ve been belting it out this morning and replacing the Mardi-Gras lines with Arti-Gras and making up a few new ones about wallets and big long shiny pistols. Just be glad you don't live here or within a two mile radius. The Neville Brothers got their feet wet singing harmony on that song in 1976 by the way.
Another favorite is actor Dennis Quaid's Closer to You...oh my. When I first heard him sing this it was pretty much over for me...And to be paired up with the Neville's and Bonnie Raitt...even better...then to have Gregg Allman walk on? Too much.
Oh, the wallets are Arti-Gras previews ---I'm booth #32---stop on by. This year I focused only on the upcycled paper wallets--nothing else. It's a wallet extravaganza, but alas...I'm sorry for the guys...no billfolds for you. They just don't work the way I want them too, but you women will find plenty of cool ones!
OH... my friend Angela has started a blog. She's a self proclaimed Crafty Bitch (can you call an expectant mom that? she would, but I feel weird!) anyway, she's 4 months pregnant with twins and has been ordered to bedrest for the remainder of the pregnancy! She's a crafty queen and a real doer, so we all know that this is driving her crazy...so much so that she will probably set a world record for the most blog posts in a week! Check out her new blog, Handmade...in bed.
