Empire

Here’s a mixed media thing I made a while back. So… that happened.

Vacation Redux

It appears to have been deemed very short-notice-like that Annabelle and I are going to take one more shot at a ‘vacation’. After the previous fiasco I’m keeping my fingers crossed that things will go a bit better this time.

We won’t have internet access on this trip, so I won’t be able to catch-up with everyone until our return. In fact, if you’re reading this post we’re already… off… somewhere. So you get a well deserved break from me. For a while, anyway.

Also please don’t make too much fun of my fake Wayfarers… I did save around one hundred bucks on this deal, you know.
