Hi Ho Hi Ho

Grumpy: [watching the Dwarfs washing themselves] Next thing you know, she'll be tyin' your beards up in pink ribbons and smellin' ya up with that stuff called, uh...”perfoom".

Cleaning your work surface will lead to all kinds of mischief. Like wanting EVERYTHING to suddenly be tidy. Loose ends cleared up, Questions answered. And all works in progress completed. It doesn't exactly happen as we would want, but I do have a few "pink ribbons" that I'd like to use, and yes, we so like good perfume...very tempting.

However, dwarfs might be easier to handle...( Am I really writing about dwarfs? ) Sometimes in the studio and beyond it does seems like we have at least 7 dwarfs all going in different directions. All wriggling and stubborn. (Okay I am smiling at that one too.) Paintings and the business of art have their own little dance and wriggle they do. Sometimes it's practically a chorus line. And then there's life. Ooh, but that's another story.

Well, Brush is lacing up his hiking boots, we're still going in on the piece just begun, but while paint dries, there are others to attend. So it's off to work we, it would have been cooler if we landed in that wizard film... you know the one where the brooms and dishes all magically dance around and everything ends up nice and neat? But dwarfs, I got dwarfs...and grumpy ones at that.

Well, Hi ho Brush, Hi Ho....c'mon. Skip? You want me to skip? Sheesh. Not likely, I think I need more tea. Who is running this show anyway? No, I am not the grumpy one... stop whistling either.. I heard you...Is that Pencil humming? What mischief is this?

Don't cha hate it when a certain song gets stuck in your head first thing in the morning?

IS there a chocolate truffle hidden amongst those lovely marks?
What do you do if the song that haunts you is in Russian?
Then what..?

Janice C. Cartier said...

I think the Russian thing requires a dance. :-)

Hidden truffle yes...a couple of sneaky little shadows and it is done.

LOL--I love it! I WILL be humming that damned song all day long, now, you do realize. Sweet! I love the dwarves. My boyfriend, as a really small child, played one of the dwarves in a play, and to this day, he says, he's sad they didn't let him keep the shoes he wore that curled up at the ends....;)))) (I asked him which dwarf he played but he forgets that!)

Janice C. Cartier said...

Augh, Cool shoes! They shoulda let him keep the shoes/ Sa weet! All kinds of potential there.

I know, first thing when I got up, Hi ho, hi ho.. still playing all kinds of cd's to get it out.. I thought it only fair to share...LOL

(Cool boyfriend.)

If you live with a little person you get all sorts of annoying songs stuck in your head early in the morning. It's the cruel punishment for having a little cutie nearby... I run to meetings singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow or something out of The Little Mermaid. But as a consolation, you frequently find yourself with a dumb smile on your face.

The urge to neaten the world? Kids cure you of that, too.

Well, I do like my desk to be neat. Sort of. :)

LOL- know what you mean. There's a picture.. all of us going out the door with soundtracks running in our head...I may have to add that to my "Guess the Profession Game".
