to have your heart stop from discovering pure awesomeness pretty much greater than any other awesomeness the world has ever known is an amazing feeling. it's like, it makes you want to hug strangers, make bushels full of donuts that magically don't contain calories OR fat, do backflips, and most of all, share it with everyone you know! i happened to find this page on facebook today called, "dinosaurs died of boredom" and i was curious, because hey, it's a funny name. first, i saw a watercolor painting of christopher walken and thought, "holy shit!" and then i saw a watercolor painting of marie antoinette's head and thought, "i must have this!!!" and then, maybe better than any other watercolor to have ever graced the face of this earth, i saw one of oscar wilde. that, kids, is when my heart ceased to beat; my breath came short, if at all; my eyes most likely crossed and/or bulged, but probably both.
just a little side note, when i saw the christopher walken painting, i kind of wanted to say, "babies, before we're done here, y'all be wearing gold plated diapers" only there was no one to say it to, and if i just started quoting that skit out loud, i'd seem a little crazy, wouldn't i?
much to my dismay, the amazing shop is currently closed thanks to the canadian postal strike (at this point i start shaking my fist toward the heavens), but you can still add it to your favorites so you'll know when paintings are once again made available! i know i will. i also know i'll forgo food and maybe even shelter to own one. well, scratch the shelter part, because what good would it do me to have a painting and no wall to hang it on? exactly. so just food, then.
