What in h-e-double-Stanley-Cup-Finals-parallel-hockey-sticks is this image.
Well, I will tell You.
This is: AEDM, nouvelle pal SherryB, Yours Truly, and Sparky. All smilingly captured at Ani Hoover's and AJ Fries's swingin' studio party this past samedi soir at 701 Seneca Street. The ol' Larkin Soap Factory.
This was sent over by SherryB, who may be one of The Nurses for my installation at Artists & Models.
Who else was at the A/AJ studio soirée.
Gordo, Bryan, Todd&Steph, Jana&Deano, Kerly, Ed, Cheryl, and a plethora of other bon vivants and demi-n'er-do-wells.
And cheeses galore, as mentioned previously.

Sometimes Yours Truly really and truly self-amazes.
Today, for example, YT decided to finally check out what was creeping over the edge of her left black ballet flat.
What appeared to be a lining, beige in colour, revealed itself to be a form-keeping piece of cardboard made after shoe in question left the factory in China where it was assembled from dyed cow hides, petroleum-based plastic soles, and the like.
A piece of cardboard.
No wonder the left shoe was a little irritating to the foot.
Just fired off an email to the nurses-to-Artists & Models-be about appropriate uniform regalia, tequila and Polaroid policies.

Yesterday the Middling City News came to the YT World Headquarters to interview me about Red Dinner, the annual hoopla that brings together both a smorgasbord of wondrously wonderful people, and a smorgasbord of red foods - all prepared by moi.
I fired up the stovetop and made a small batch of my totally famous Nance's Red Devil Eggs - made with red caviar.
The reporter, JaneK, kind of turned a little red and declined a try.
Sharon, on the other hand, as intrepid and creative photog type, took the plunge ... and loved the little squidgy treats.

Jerry Mead was over after the MCNews gals and there was overlapping and Jerry pronounced his like of Nance's Red Devil Eggs, and ate one.
The cockles of my heart were warmed through.
Jerry picked two of the Touching Green series - hanging grapes, and Hands and Scary Licorice. The latter was purchased by Penelope & Bob Creeley as she, as some did, had an odd association with the nonpareils captured in the piece.
The show opens late August at Kenan Center (that's Center, not Centre) and includes others who make work about food.

Time to wend, and make more pixel-related happy times.

Happy, Pixel Pixie Love, Love.
