These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

- Less Than Jake: Is This Thing On?

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

-Chris Orbach: Jane

I could be condemned to hell for every sin but littering."

- Soul Coughing: Idiot Kings

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Swamp- sure. Will put something in for scale in the next pic.

It gets to be slower going as you proceed, because you get to a point often where anything you add is going to shift what's already down 9but not dry.) Waiting for more glue to set up now so I can continue with it, but it may take another couple days to finish it. Then 24 hours of drying time (at least) before grouting and sealing.

can you stick your hand or a pizza in?

Something about this question just cracked me up!

Lovely work so far elf. Black grout, I assume? Should look lovely!

Black grout, yes. Goes with all the black trim in my house. :)

It's getting there. Slow now, as I have a migraine and everything is making me *really* nauseous, but getting there.

I agree. I'm cracking up at the "head or pizza" question.

It's a whole new way of measuring scale! It's one Elf-head high. It's half a chicken marsala pizza across.

Pizza's not a really good metric to use for scale, because NYC pizza is a whole 'nother beast.

Are you drinking enough (water I mean)...

Dhamaka- I haven't been drinking anything really othr than water. The last time I got good and faced I was in London and Alf kept pouring wine from that bottle of rose. Then there were muppets.

Swamp- Almost done now, I think one more sitting to go. Just one more area that needs covering, but I have to wait for this round of tile to set before I can finally put it in.

Thanks. Hopefully I can pick up some black grout (I seem to be out of it) tonight and get it grouted when I get home from class, before settling in on my lighting homework and back to thesis.
