ACK! I FORGOT IT WAS FRIDAY! Plus: A Cool Irish Painting.

Oh. My. Heart. I totally thought today was Thursday. Even though I went to my writer's group yesterday, which only happens on the first Thursday. Even though I had my first Thursday lunch with a dear friend. Even though my huzz gets home from Canada/Boston/Vermont today which is a Friday.

Now see? This is what happens when we are over-scheduled. Or as Russo would say, Frazzled. In the best of times I can schedule two things at the same time, and never shall the conflict meet in my brain. Until I'm at one event and someone from the other event calls me and says, "Um. Are you coming?" And then I have chocolardiac arrest (because I am always eating chocolate) and wish I could splinch myself and be in two places at once.

Ah well. *sigh* Nothing for it except to apologize. And hurry up and write a blog post. And eat chocolate. 

WAIT! Also, here's a cool thing for you to look at--because when we are frazzled we need moments of peace, and this painting totally provides that. It's lovely. This was officially voted Ireland's favorite painting. It's by Frederic William Burton and is called "Meeting On The Turret Stairs." And I borrowed it from the PJ Lynch website which I hope is okay because I'm not claiming it's mine. (Mr. Lynch is an amazing illustrator and artist. You should go look at his work here.)

Gorgeous. *sigh* Now go read some summer romance.
And eat chocolate.

This painting (whether intentionally or not) reminds me of the romance between Lancelot and Queen Guenivere. Very awesome painting, thanks for sharing it!

Cassidy Wadsworth said...

I can see why it was voted a favorite; I love it! Thanks for sharing :)

Maegan Langer said...

Agreed. It totally looks like Lance and Gwen (yep, I call them "Lance" and "Gwen". Cuz we're like *this*).

Ahh that's okay, I once went through an entire day thinking it was the day before and when I woke up the next day and found out, I was really confused. Talk about frazzled.

By the way love your Got Bazinga banner! Gotta love Dr. Sheldon Cooper!

Thanks Sarah! It's nice to know I'm not the only one who does this. :) As for Got Bazinga: Yeah, we love our geeky scientists. :)

Everyone else: I'm with you on the Lance and Gwen-thing (I'm also like *this* with Lanny and Gwenny). And I think we need to write a story for this painting, don't you? Everyone in favor say "Aye!" You may also say "Eye!" if you want.

Maegan Langer said...

We could do that, although the Merry Sisters of Fate has already done it . . .

A lovely painting.

And you can never have too much chocolate.*

*unless you're deathly allergic to chocolate.**

**in which case, god help you, you poor soul.

No chocolate allergies (huzzah!)

The Merry Sisters of Fate have written stories to this painting? What are the odds?

Russo said...

Ah, I loathe those days when you forget what day it is. I loved seeing you at writers group BTW. Ah, I adore this painting. Beatiful!
