Written Monday, Posted Tuesday

Coffee?!? We don't need no stinking coffee! And after all the fuss I made last week about iLike, I'm not even listening to any music. Not much glass work was done today. I was just getting ready to make coffee and sit down to write this morning when my landscaper blew in an whisked me off to look at large Vietnamese glazed pots. She is a bit like a tornado is my landscaper. While we were off potting, her crew was removing all the weeds from the backyard--except around the bamboo because it is ALL shooting right now and it's too easy to step on the shoots and crush them. It's WAY early for everything to be shooting--I heard it's supposed to be in the 30's here for Easter--but global warming is affecting more than just the polar bears and tomorrow it's supposed to be 80.

But enough about the outside. What little I did get done today included getting the captions written for the pictures of my work in the book, finding and purchasing a crate to ship my stuff to ACRE in, and getting the news from UPS that my claim for the piece they broke last week has been DENIED. I am going to pin someone's ears back tomorrow when the supervisor calls me about it. I have no idea how they can claim it wasn't sufficiently packed when the damage was caused by them piercing the box with a long sharp object and chipping one panel with it.

You don't think that they got successful and wealthy there by reimbursing mere glassworkers for the damage they cause, do you?
