I Can Fly.

I made a new doll.

















And just in case people don't get her, I've put a label on her wing.

















Mostly people don't get me. I sometimes wonder if I should stick a label on my forehead saying something like quirkess* or weirdo or beware: abnormal. Do you think it would help or would it confuse people even more?

* This is not a word.  I made it up.
PS The first of the three books I have to edit over the next few months has arrived. I am immersed in Doppler effects and Huygens's Principle. Have pity on me.

I just dumped a whole truck load of pity upon thee! I hate your job! I love your angel! I think you might do well to stamp "abnormal" on your forehead- we are a club you know...how else will we be able to identify one another? Code words like 'quirkess" also works...you are the queen of abnormal- I am close...Queenette, perhaps.
word verification-'flybaing' which is what your angle does I am sure.

So quirkess I can not even spell correctly!

I love angels .... and yours is exceedingly lovely!! We're not abnormal - we are differently-normalled (as in not disabled, but differently-abled)!!

Ha ha ha! I love your angle(LS!) and your new word. When you have made the tattoo into one of those wash off ones I would like a copy too please!
I do have pity on you-I have pity on all of us who would much rather be doing the important things such as making papier mache angels instead of drowning in work!

I often feel the same way... sometimes it is hard wandering about feeling different or the odd one out... but I know I wouldn't swap it for the world and all the stars.

Like your angel, too.

Oh Anairam! I love the term quirkess as much as I love your angel. Who wants to be normal and boring?? We do make a fine organization of abbie normals.

My sympathy to you and your appalling job. Just think how much wiser you will be when you finish; and maybe even more abnormal than ever. Which is a good thing.

Quirkess. Went out for breakfast this morning and quoted you! It is such a lovely word to describe us!

Sorry to hear you have toothache. Stop working right now and get down to the dentist!

Dit klink baie opwindend! En Huygens is classic...

I'd love to be called quirkess, I'd think it was a compliment. Beautiful angel by the way.
