In the midst of all of this brilliance, I humbly offer my entry:


I found this quote on the internet somewhere, and I immediately loved it. My coworkers were quite offended that I was defaming housekeepers, something I never had read into it.

defaming housekeepers

Where did THAT come from? Sounds like CIA-sponsored LSD experiments to me...

Thank you, it just kind of worked out that way through the fact that they were the only colors that I had a light and a dark of.

Re: defaming housekeepers
I honestly don't know why they thought that. I interpret it to mean that I don't want to be the stereotype of the 50's housewife cleaning in pearls and pumps.

I'm considering doing a companion piece that says, "A watched pizza never boils," but I'm out of aida cloth at the moment.
