To Covet or not to Covet??


Being in order mode has its benefits; it means my office is finally at a place where I can sit and think without a cloud of  ‘should be doings’ over my head.  It also can have its drawbacks-oh, like-not wanting to get back work ’cause the weather is so nice and putting it off a day or two more won’t matter.  I did at least paint my table file today so that counts for progress which was promptly negated by the dilly-dallying on either side of that project.  Well, since it is going on four here and I need to go make sushi for dinner soon, I figured I would do a little follow up work on an event I attended last week.

The Urban Institute of Contemporary Art (UICA), an organization that has amazing art programs and exhibitions, held a Nosh Night (which rocked btw) complete with Slide Wars.  SW gave artists, designers, and all sort of creatives the opportunity to present their work, ideas and motivation in a rapid-fire format.  What it gave to observers was the opportunity to learn more about the talent out there in GR.  I was looking back at some half scrawled notes and came across one for Covet Furniture.  I loved the philosophy behind the product, but, more than that….I adored the product.  My fav was this one right here…

Isn’t she too sah-weet!  The things I would do to to have this chair!!  Not that I am complaining about my Goodwill finds but I know, I just know, I could go places and do things if I had a chair like this.  Now I understand Covet-ousness!!!

So, I have chattered a bit and can feel like I did more than fritter the day away.  It wasn’t a total loss though-I scored The Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck, Dubliners byt James Joyce and The Age of Reason, a novel by jean-Paul Sarte at a tag sale(!).  I have slogged through Being and Nothingness by Sarte but have never read a novel by him-should be interesting..I’ll let you know.
