Spring Flowers

I'm sitting here listening to an old classic in my life, an indie band called Hogleg that I used to follow around St Louis back in the 90s.  All these memories are flooding back in my head from those days when I was a professional partier.  Before life became a series of the same thing day after day.  Before life had too many adult responsibilities. Man how I miss those days back then.

Yeah sometimes I am so bored with my life that it makes me long for the days past. I am having one of those moments right now.  Before things I can't talk about here happened and made my life the way it is now. WOW that was kind of melodramatic eh?

Oh and the latest work drama?  Two nurses and a clerk have quit since the new boss. Plus she has decided that we need monthly mandatory staff meetings once a month at either 0730 before the work day starts at 0800 or at 5PM, when we get off at 4:30PM.  WTF! I can't keep up with all these damn changes.  What I do know is this: I have a hard enough time getting my ass there on time at 0800 and now you want me there at 0730? No way in hell am I staying late for a damn meeting.  Normally I skip these mandatory things, but until I feel her out I should probably play along.

Especially since my yearly evaluation and raise are due in April.

So I'll pretend but secretly look at Instagram while the meeting happens.

Today's mani was inspired by the fact that Spring still has not arrived yet.  Umm it's almost April people!  I thought if I did a mani like this one, it would make Spring appear.

Let's just say it didn't work since it snowed again.

This is Lime Crime Pastelchio, Barry M Spring Green, Cyan Blue and China Glaze Dandy Lyin Around.

I started with skittles.

Next I took out my art brushes and went to town, but at the same time I messed up the middle finger so I laid a pile of polish on and this is what happened.

Now my BFF told me this was awful, you can see the thick crap on the middle finger so I did what I never ever do, and that is start a nail over.  Here are the way better results.

Oh the glitter is Lynderella Love, Lace and Lilacs for those who must know!  Overall I think this came out pretty good for my very first free hand flowers ever!

I mean you can actually tell they are flowers!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
