I mean, like really - can we talk? Can we say things the way they are supposed to be said?
Emeril can't. If I hear him say "chiPOLte" one more time I might include him in my next DSL waterboarding session.
Why doesn't hooked on phonics work? How come people can't look at the word CHIPOTLE and put the letters in the right order in their heads and on their tongues?
ITS CHI-POT-LE. POT RHYMES WITH BOAT AND THAT'S WHERE THE ACCENT GOES.
It's not like it's an ingredient that is used every day - I get that. But that's no reason to just stick the L in some random place and bark it out. You're famous. Say it right. It's not remotely cute to those of use who live in the Great Republic of Texas and eat them all the time.
The only reason I'm subjected to this phonic torture is that he is on right before Martha, so the DVR fires up a few minutes before her peaceful and creative goodness. I love his food. His restaurant in Orlando is not only one of the most beautiful places I've ever been - cascading blue glass tiles may have something to do with it - but the food was wonderful - but I'm really gonna need him to get his Chipotle on. It would be like me yelling out "STAPMING UP!" over and over again. You'd shuttle me off to a home, don't lie. So go with me on this.
Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, working on the fun Dirty Girl challenges. Combined the "Embrace the White Space" challenge with the "Watercolor Wow" challenge for this little ditty.
A watercolor tip - get your paper wet before you start, and as you work, re-wet the placed you're about to color.
I stamped this Pick a Petal image in India Ink - my new fave watercolor ink. Then I watercolored the petals only with my beloved Pacific Point Blue. The center of the flower is watercolored with Summer Sun, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie. Same for the open space, except also Ruby Red and Close to Cocoa.
I used reinkers to do the watercolor.
Then I stamped "Bloom" from Bloomin' Beautiful on the bottom in India Ink.
I have SUCH a giant secret I'm stifling from all of you.
So in exchange - this good news - You will soon be able to place your orders 24/7 on my demonstrator website
YAY - finally self service online ordering is here!! With announcements like these I can't even imagine next week!
I shrunk Sock Monkey on shrink plastic today. I bought some fun pants.
What are your thoughts?
Hope you had a great Tuesday!!
