I lost a whole f*cking huge post that I spent an hour on, even though I backed it up twice, because Blogger is a f*cking c*nt. Blogger, you're a f*cking c*nt. And I'm mad.

That said, I wanted to make everyone aware of two things (which I did at greater length and much better in my post that is now lost somewhere in a buried squence of 1s and 0s in my computer because Blogger is a f*cking c*nt):

1. Laurel Denise Designs -

I just found out this week that a friend from JMU, Laurel, has taken her art talents to the jewelry arena. Now if you know me you know I don't like jewlery. I don't wear it. It doesn't usually appeal to me, and if it's for women then forget about it. But I clicked on Laurel's IM link to her website a few days ago and was taken aback with what I saw.

I know about 15 people at this point who are trying to do something similar; usually, it's beading. Now I don't want to knock beading,but it just seems that it all looks the same. Laurel has beaded stuff and if you like it, have at it. But what I'm really impressed with is the very elegant way she's created some striking jewelry out of simple glass.

I think her designs are breathtaking. You all know I rarely endorse anything on here, and when I do I either believe in it or feel strongly about it; this is no exception. I think her pieces are amazing. I'm not going to describe them to you as I want you clicking on the link above to go there and see for yourself. I think you'll find them as wonderful as I do. And you should take it from me because, aside from being very smart, I'm also quite a good artist. Really. I'm kind of a big deal around here. I have many leather bound books and my apartment smells of rich mohogany.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: It's clear that Geoff is trying his best to get Laurel to marry him; this fact he makes no attempt to hide. He wants her to be his first wife very badly. However, that should not detract from the fact that he is being quite serious about how lovely these pieces are, and his honesty in divulging such information should not be taken as an attempt to "score points" or anything of such folly. The Editor simply wanted to claify this. All good? Let's move on.)

2. Family members and friends in faraway states have been begging for pictures of Marvin, the beard. Well here it is. This picture was taken a few weekends ago when Staci, the other person in the picture (just so there's no confusion...she's the one without the beard) and a good friend from JMU, was in town to visit her cousin. Incidentally, Staci hated Marvin and pretended she didn't know me for nearly two hours until I tricked her with whiskey.

That's it, but only because I lose my REAL post because Blogger is a f*cking c*nt. When I come back I'll rewrite my argument for why Joe Montana isn't the best NFL QB ever, an argument you'll know immediately is right.

To close, Blogger = f*cking c*nt.
