Threesomes, Foursomes, Fivesomes

Kendall Jackson sauvignon blanc in a Riedel stemless wineglass, "By the Way" by the Chili Peppers on iTunes. BTW, I'm finally posting today. Today's news: "Siyeh Studio presents Whimsically Bent in Atlanta, the collaborative works of Todd Briske and Brenda Griffith". Come and see us at the Taylor Kinzel 5th Annual Glass Show December 6th and 7th.

I took Todd 20 lbs 12 oz of glass in the form of 132 3" squares to turn into hanging ornaments (Christmas, window, ficus, creativity knows no bounds), and an additional 23 lbs of fire-polished shard scrap to turn into plant and garden stakes, wall hangings--whatever takes his fancy. The partnership is new, fresh, and exciting. I look forward to each meeting like it was a third date. You know what that's like, it's the honeymoon stage. And like any guy with any girl in the first flush of a new relationship, he's a bit overwhelmed with the way I'm all over him planning our future. But I'm already expanding us two into us three--not my normal third date behavior. Now I am envisioning what we can do with steel, glass and aluminum--solid strength, colorful depth, and shiny sinuousness/sinuoucity (the spellchecker barfs equally at both).

Todd has a delightfully twisted, laid-back outlook on life that is either going to lighten me up a bit or drive me stark staring mad. Fortunately our relationship is business casual so I won't have to worry about either me killing him or him boring me to tears after we've been together for a few weeks--unlike the real third dates I've been on. Instead, I continue to come home every day to Dave and I still have Bill and Elaine on the side for my other metal needs. Does life get any better? Pictures soon.
