My Famous Ending

Let me just start by saying that I have not blogged for a long time. My life lately has been hectic, caotic and basically a real roller coaster. But after spending time with a very close friend in the hospital yesturday, of course, I was reminded how grateful I should be and am that I am basically healthy and have a blessed life.
Another friend called last night to tell me about a project that was coming up that I may be interested in. It is a large project where I would be able to paint a series or at least one mural for a town that sounded very exciting. I want to do some research on this and make it happen. I was sharing this with a friend (boy, I do have friends :) ).She told me that even if I didn't "make the cut" for the painting of the murals that I could always be a part by getting coffee or cleaning up after the artists. I was thinking what is wrong with me and why wouldn't I be considered for the "making it group" when I started talking with my sister Chris, as we were talking I decided that one day I would be rich and famous. (This is my positive spin :))Of course, that day would be when I was dead! That is when most people get famous right??
People would one day read about me in their Art History classes and learn how very tragic my ending was. This makes you even MORE famous I believe! I can't do the ear cutting off thing. I must be unique in this. I think I will be found in the corner of my art studio, dead from chewing off my own arm!. Of course, it would have happened years before my body was found, as having all guys in my house, no one will notice! My faithful dog would be at my side. He would have not lost much weight as he would have found my chocolate stash and sparingly ate that.
People, in going over my personal belongings would then take notice of how my drawings were really nice and yes, maybe they should have bought some. Oh, that painting is good. Maybe the pantry was NOT the place to hang it that the mice really didn't get frightened from it!
And that yes, in fact, I WAS good enough to be in the mural painting catagory!
Have a wonderful and thanks for reading! :)
P.S. I'm really not a meat eater, so I may have to alter the death ending. I'll keep thinking.


  1. Oh Denise, you're my kind of lady. Don't forget the ear was a gift to impress the girls, so you may be better off with the arm chewing thing.

    ...also your dog may end up as dead (albeit maybe not as famous) as you if he eats your chocolate stash. My advice: alter between chewing your arm and nibbling the chocolate, and save another snack... say an ear (it could be a pig's ear!) for the doggie.

    LOL I loved this post. :o)

  2. Pam,
    I had to laugh at your comment to my post. I know a dog is not suppose to eat chocolate, unfortunetly my dog got into not one but two, Christmas stockings full of chocolate! I was really upset at first since I didn't know why he was running wildly around and around the tree,(not at all typical of him) but other than messing up the presents underneath and knocking off the ornaments and actually EATING one of the cross stiched stockings that I made before my son (now 23) was born, no harm came to him!Oddly enough, he does barf on pigs ears..go figure! :)

  3. Wow this was a different kind of posting. Somehow it's hard to see the woman who creates such gorgeous works of art writing a post like this but then again, look at VanGogh.
