Bossy admits she has a complicated relationship with painting, where complicated equals impossible to describe so she will try.
First of all, she’s really good at painting, and that feels accomplished. Second: there is something perfectly zen about applying the new, out with the old. There is an order to it. A logic. Third: Bossy works with her brother, which means they are paid to chat. And chat and chat and laugh. Oh, and they do meticulous work.
So Bossy is back on the ladder, and while it’s been weird and sad to leave her writing unattended for full work days, it’s also been its own brand of fun.

I am glad that even though your poverty has driven you back to something you weren’t so enthused about that you at least enjoy the task!

So those furniture pad dealios really work to move furniture around? I’ve seen them and always wondered if they work.

I’m a fan of painting when 1) a new color is applied and 2) it’s done!

I want to hire Bossy to come to the compound and paint my bedroom and livingroom….all 300 sq ft. I will pay you a bonus and serve you some hefer’s kefir with berries.
Then we can go get a full body massage and a pedicure.

Looks like R2D2 got a job with you guys as a vacuum cleaner. Guess Hollywood doesn’t pay robots well.

What color would Bossy be painting that wall? Bossy’s paint job is looking mighty fine.

Are you mocking me, Bossy, because I said “so there”?
Cactus Petunia saysMarch 26, 2009 at 1:53 pm
I love painting, too! Especially when I get to do it with someone else, and we have a chat fest…but usually, I’m outside, on a scaffold. Like this: http://campcactus.blogspot.com/2008/10/doggy-business.html

Good for you. I wish I could take a break from my regular job of being unemployed to pal around with my brother.

Last time I painted it was an all-night session with someone who was apparently a cokehead. I was just hyper and too stupid to tell the difference. I’d rather paint with a brother — yours, actually. ; )
