Today has been a weird one. I was gonna write to Kasey, but I realized, maybe ALL of you are having a goofy azz day too?
Like, I get down to the dump and the dude is not around to punch my card (2 and change bucks per bag) and so I am driving away and this mad guy in uniform pops up behind my car and I am like OH SHOOT, is he gonna call the cops or take my plate? ( a) other cars pulled up and I saw in the mirror he got busy with them, and b) what was he doing, picking his nose somewhere, not doing his job?) Then I am like, all looking for the cops and blow a red light AND then blow a stop sign and realize it is a good time to chill at the store 'cause I am in a weird mood obviously, and run into a friend whose daughter has a huge cast on her arm---so sad, broken to the nth degree! poor sad little girl BUT THEN I get home and there is a beautiful but dead cat dead on the street, not familiar to me, but I talk to Chris across the road, who is about to bury him, and Chris tells me he was really upset because he had been playing with cat the night before, and then today? Flattened. He is super upset--he could have, what? Brought the cat in? I dunno. And now the weather is going bananas---from hot and sunny to this crazy stormy stuff....thanks for listening, and before you read the below, how is YOUR day? Please go to comments and say.
Yesterday I get this spacy email, I respond, then the lady writes back this morning. I think, perhaps, tis a stoner with a computer...

After a last-ditch effort to save my 9th wedding anniversary, I Googled "pottery" and Beastie Boys. *Poof* There you were.
"Pottery being the traditional 9th anniversary gift and "Beastie Boys" being my husband's life-long addiction to, well, everything Beastie. I could write volumes and chapters about his passion (er, obsession) to the Boys from Brooklyn but I'll spare you.
Nonetheless, any suggestions as to what I get a 30-something, vegetarian, loves the Beasties, Star Wars and baseball????
(They say women marry versions of their Fathers. Of course, I ended up marrying a version of my little brother. *sigh*.)
I've been searching online endlessly, for the last two weeks trying to find the perfect gift. This is very important to me as he one-ups me every time. Last year was bronze. I gave him a little plaque with his name on it with a heart. He gave me a replica of the bronze star my Grandfather received in WWII while serving in Germany. . . engraved. . . and signed by one of the last remaining men alive in his platoon. Yeah. Really. I felt like an ass. I should mention, this is in no way a competition but I'm not an emotional shopper and need some guidance if you would be so kind with a suggestion or two. My anniversary is 11/28.
Should you not respond, I completely understand. After all, I assume you don't get too many emails from desperate women. Or maybe you do.
I'll be quiet now.

I have been doing a lot with skulls lately. Some people say that there is something special about skulls and hearts? it is a very punk aesthetic. there are a couple examples if you click the etsy gallery below plus the small teapot in the attd. pic :)
Thanks very much, gr
I can't believe you replied to that. Indeed, you are a really nice guy. Or just bored. lol!
You wouldn't happen to make water bongs FOR TOBACCO USE, would you? Know someone who does? I'm halfway perusing your work. . . You're a talented guy!!! Took a pottery class 13 years ago but the teacher suggested I try writing instead.
Thanks for your suggestions, Gary. Should I ever purchase pottery it will be from you.
