A Word From My Man, the Artist @ Large

Hello! This is a quickie reminder of my upcoming stint with the Cultural Center's Open Studio Program. It begins November 1st and goes until thanksgiving. M-F, 8-6 @ the storefront in the Pedway below the Chicago Cultural Center, 77 E. Randolph St. The Open Studio Program was created to allow the public to see the art-making process as it unfolds so, by all means, please feel free to swing on by and say hi as I hash out some new works... Got questions? Drop me a line at anytime. Thanks for reading and have a wonderfully creative day!

-David DeRosa, Artist~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Little Miss Patriotic

Well, I've been feeling all "red, white, & blue" lately. This isn't a political blog, but I am a feminist so I'm duty-bound to remind everyone: DON'T FORGET TO VOTE! David & I voted early on Saturday and we had to wait for over an hour in a nice, ever-growing line. It makes me happy to see so many people enthusiastic about voting. So, remember, when you standing in line, bored to tears, and wondering how late you're going to be for work: smile because you might possibly maybe make a difference.

(Here's me, crossing my fingers and saying a little prayer.)

Pynchon, the Conflict of the Right Word, and Rambling Sentences

I can't help myself. I said I wasn't going to post anything because I'm in the middle of writing a rather wordy and incoherent novel as fast as I can. But I miss you all and wanted to say hello. Hello!

Do you feel like you've been caught in a maddening whirlwind of continous--and often ambiguous--facts about the economy (which is pretty much fucked) and the presidental election, conflicting with the beauty of golden, firey nature and chilling breezes, and the desire to curl up in a small ball with a bottle of flavored vodka (I like putting a shot in a malt beverage) and a gripping fantasy novel?

Please tell me I'm not the only one.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to write a coherent paper for my lit class, tutor English to my sweet Korean girls, write like a mad woman, and not think about the publishing endeavor I began this summer.

Oh, and I also have a day-job, but that's merely a paycheck so I can eat on a regular basis and have the internet. I'm totally addicted to checking my e-mail. (Write me!!!)

Well, all I can say is thank god for Tina Fey, Season Two of Dexter on Netflix, and our new family member, Jasper.

Everyone, meet Jasper DeRosa!

Our little toddler is still a bit shy even though we've had him for about a month. Jasper was a birthday present for David and we're training him to hang out on our shoulders, travel with us in the car (he likes hanging out under David's shirt), and eat from our hands. He's a good little kid and makes these beautiful, little chirping noises in the morning.
Okay, everyone say it together: aaaaaaawwwwwww.
