Silent auction

What did I do today? I took pictures and put them on Flickr. I am coordinating a Silent Auction to raise money for the Montgomery College Women's Studies Student Scholarship fund. The actual auction will be held on Wednesday morning, but I put up pictures of some of the items that will be auctioned. There are some great items in the auction -- if anyone wants to bid on the item, I'm happy to put in a proxy bid for you. Just email me to let me know.

I thought that ancientsong would like this piece.

The good and the bad

7 Things I'm Good At:
  • Finding information (ask me a question, any question . . .)
  • Teaching (leading discussion, lecturing, etc.)
  • Expressing affection (just ask Q)
  • Painting a room
  • Being enthusiastic
  • Basic sewing
  • Baking (except for bread)
7 Things I'm Bad At:
  • Making omelettes (truly bad breakfasts result)
  • Estimating how long it takes to complete a task
  • Remembering names
  • Making decisions rapidly (I'll get there eventually, but it's not fast)
  • Sitting quietly and doing nothing
  • Self-promotion
  • Representational drawing

Anyone else want to play? You get to brag and be humble all at once!

Candy creations

I like these funky marzipan creations that I saw on Craftzine. Check out Bobo and George the Dead Clown at the bottom of the gallery. Alas, the bakery is in Belgium, so I can't buy one for Q.
