spacey moments


lately i've been enjoying tiny red's chronicles of the space cadets she meets around town. do you have space cadet moments? i sure do, all the time. her endearing tales make me feel much better about the alarmingly high rate of those moments that occur in our household. here are some of yesterday's; i'll leave you to sort out who did what :)

[if you'd like to share your favorite space cadet moment here, i'd love to hear it]

HA HA HA! Oh, I just adore this little lady in the colorful outfit. I had to laugh at the clothes in the bathtub!

My space cadet moment....hmmm, so many to choose from. Oh, I know. One time I went halfway to work before realizing I still had my bedroom slippers on.

yesterday, i was walking out the door with my hands full ... keys, calendar, cell phone, pen ... walking to a meeting .... looked up .... oh, it's cloudy ..... went back in .... grabbed an umbrella ... got to the meeting .... all i had was the umbrella .... all other essential paraphanalia? jettisoned for the umbrella ... .not sure why .... was completely unaware of putting anything down .....

no, it did not rain .....

Amy, your work is always so amazing! Do you publish/market your pieces? I could see your designs used in so many ways.

Space cadet moment that happens all of the time - looking for the sunglasses that are on top of my head.

Great idea & illustration, love the lady. Yesterday I left beetroot boiling - completely forgot it was on - you can imagine the mess!

ohhh what a hoot!!!!!! i love the little lady's expression and colorful outfit. could it be a self portrait? :)

these are tremendous stories - i must say i like you all even more now. um, a self portrait? it didn't start out with that intention, but i think it ended up that way. at least i look happy about it :)

my crowning moment was when i fell asleep at laguardia waiting for a flight. i sat down at the gate ready to board and the next thing i knew, everyone was gone. as was the plane. and a month later i did exactly the same thing at o'hare.

this is so funny! i have so many space cadet moments. usually they happen when i'm at the grocery store in the checkout line-- the checker always has to remind me to press the buttons on the credit card machine because i'm staring into space. oops! :)

My favorite is the goggles! How funny. Oh, for all the times I'm a space cadet, I could write a book. There's just too much going on in my mind at one time, I think, and some common sense thoughts just get loose, never to return!
