More birthday

Last night I had plans to have dinner and then go to a basketball game with my friend, Julie.  My manager at work has season tickets to the Suns here and gave everyone a couple tickets to random games for Hanukkah.  I just happened to draw the tickets that were during the time I'd taken off for my birthday, so that was convenient.

I met Julie and Ben, her husband, at Cornish Pasty.  While I do love Cornish Pasty, I'll admit I don't normally have it twice in the same week, but whatevs, it was delicious.

Did that stop me from getting Banoffee Pie again?  Oh heck no.

Ben and Julie are awesome.  They have this magical ability wherein you can hang out with them and NOT feel like a third wheel.  Fabulous.

Anyway, long story short, we were running late and I seriously was not looking forward to driving around downtown Phoenix and neither Julie nor I really care for basketball all that much... we ditched and the three of us went and played mini-golf instead!

It was a lot of fun.  We all sucked royally but there was much laughing and goofballery.

Thanks to Ben and Julie for a wonderful evening!

My best friend is amazing.
And wicked.
But mostly amazing.

Our simple day of lunch and errands suddenly took a turn when her sister and mom showed up at Cornish Pasty (one of my favorite restaurants in the valley) with presents for my surprise early birthday party!

After a yummy dinner we went to a movie (Breaking Dawn pt 2- no, I hadn't seen it yet).

Plus I even got a banoffee pie for dessert!

Excellent start to 30.


Yesterday was a bad day.

Things at work were rough and I was feeling very grumpy and depressed.  (Not to mention the woman I share a cube with came in and shared her lovely flu germs with me.  Not cool.)

But today that has completely and totally turned around.  Why?  

Because of you!  All of you amazing folks who never fail to provide a kind word or a spark of inspiration.  You are such a wonderfully caring and friendly group of people.  

I adore you all and thank the stars for the good luck of happening to wonder, "If I made digital stamps, would anyone like them?"


(Also listening to Largo al Factotum from the Barber of Seville always perks me up!)

That Moment...

When you go to the restroom at work and flush the toilet and as you're standing there, buttoning your trousers, the flushing toilet, with an almost supernatural accuracy, spits out a single drop of water that flies up, up, up...

...onto your lips.

Lunch Time

I am sitting here in my office on my lunch break today and my mind is full of numbers.  Not job-related numbers, thank goodness, but points.  That's right, it's that time of year and so I've rejoined Weight Watchers.  Anyone else out there in the same boat?

I think I'm just a little to willing to be love myself as I am.  I know that's supposed to be a good quality but at the same time it prevents one from getting really motivated to change.  Sure, I've got junk in my trunk, but I have good qualities that make up for it, right?

LOL, I need to hire some skinny teenagers to follow me around and judge me like in that commercial... I don't even remember what the commercial was for.

Quick, someone call me a lard-butt!

Happy New Year!

My New Year's Resolution this year is to make MayzyArt as fun and interactive as possible.  As part of that, I want to put myself, Mayzy the person, out there a little more.  With that in mind, I'm starting this personal blog for anyone who is interested.

This is me:
(I'm on the right, that's my Momma on the left)

Yep, I'm chubby and I like dorky things like Renn Faires.  Whatchu gonna do about it?

Right now I'm reading An Abundance of Katherines by John Green.



I used to read like a voracious mule, but things have slowed down as I'm spending much more time on art and the shop now.  It makes me a little sad.  On the other hand, I've never been this artistically productive and it hasn't gotten boring yet, so that makes me very happy.

Now I'm going to go get myself some supper and spend the rest of my New Year's Day working on MayzyArt.


(Side note: This blog is formatted bad and I should feel bad.  I'll work on it when I have some time.  In the meantime, I apologize for the eye assault.)
