The Queen of the DMV

So, confession time: I never learned how to drive. I way older than a teenager and I just never wanted to drive. I love being a passenger and Uber rocks.

I do need an i.d. thought. Since I never have it out – it expired on my birthday LAST AUGUST so months later – oops I need it and it’s expired. So I go to the DMV and this woman was a total cow to me. I need my birth certificate and more i.d. 

Okay fine. Then she has an issue with how my name went from my maiden name to my name today. We need to show how that change happened. 
I was just standing there staring……. I never had to do this before. 

I went home without an i.d. I am going back with both sets of divorce papers, my social security card, my birth certificate and some bills for that hooker and watch, someone really cool will be working and think I am a total nutcase for bringing all this i.d.

This is a 3×3-inch painting on a little canvas. Ready to hang and no framing necessary. 

At the time of this writing, this piece was available in the eBay store. If you get there and it’s not there, it’s off living life with a happy collector.

I Bring the Party

I bring the party. I think everyone should. It’s much better to be around people that want to celebrate the lives they have rather than moaning about the lives they don’t have.
This is a vintage photo mounted on vintage book papers from a 1950’s sex guide (a really short book! seriously it’s like 50 pages) and mounted it on a 3×5 canvas.

Behold the Mighty Cockroach!

This gentleman thought the cockroach was under-utilized as a resource. Why he had found ways to cook them, create fizzy softdrinks that only tasted a bit roachy, and he found the nice, large cockroaches made stylish ascots to wear.
Alas, no one remembers this usefulness about cockroaches.

Lost Dog – Last Seen Orbiting Space

Laika the dog

Laika the dog was one of the end of childhood defining moments for me. When I was little, I thought in my happy little girl head, that dog was up there in Sputnik II happily driving it around around the earth and eating dog treats ….. it wasn’t until later I found out out Laika was sent up with no way to bring her back.

My friend David Hoffman made a totally kickass video about Sputnik/Laika –  – super cool films. 🙂

Oh yeah, we’re talking about a painting, see the piece at Ebay here : Jo Potocki Funky Folk Art Original Acrylic Painting Lost Dog in Space

The Most Important Part of a Vegan Diet is Telling Everyone It’s How You Eat

I’ve been eating organic for a very long time. Got rid of my microwave a long, long time ago and I don’t eat meat and haven’t for years. Skinney and I make nearly everything from scratch or source it local.
I don’t consider myself a vegetarian, I hate labels but if someone presses the closest thing I would say I am is a nutri-cian – whatever the healthiest option is, I will choose.

I had a friend of a friend that had  discovered being a vegan and you’d think she invented the concept. She totally cornered me and started telling/yelling at  me about animal cruelty in meat and how demand for beef is ruining the planet and I’m totally looking at my hands to see if I’m mistakenly holding a Big Mac or something.

Then I lost track of what she was saying because I noticed she was either beginning or ending every sentence with “I AM A VEGAN” like it somehow made her slightly better than all other humans. I told my friend to never bring this chick to a dinner party I’m at again unless she’s learned to control her vegan powers.
