...as the esteemed D.Minogue might have put it. And how right our Dannii was.
Well, we've just had a smashing weekend here at Kapow! HQ, with the incredible Joe Snow (a walking, talking 1950s superhero who did the visuals for THIS fantastic range which is in the shops now) and his dear wife Enid Egg (style icon, Balderdash Champion and raconteur par excellence) to stay. Brilliant, talented and hilarious people, we had an outstanding time with them all. Special mention also for a typically inspired cameo by the one, the only, The Millen, ok?
I feel more driven than ever to defeat the various hurdles I've allowed to spring up over the years which have held me back from "doing my thing" creatively and allowing my ability to paint, draw and generally make stuff, be the way in which I make my living. No more wasting my time "working for The Man", as I am about to set off and do for the umpteenth time in my life.
To think each week I all but throw away 40 hours minimum of my time to do stuff which bears no relation to who I am and fails to bring out one iota of my true ability, imagination or enthusiasm is sickening. It makes me feel like a caged animal and I've only got myself to blame.
I've had moments like this before, but this time I think I can actually do it. Which says a lot for how darn marvellous a human being my darling Konnie Kapow! is. She is my inspiration, my reason to believe and I simply do not have Scooby what I'd do without her.
So, like Michael Jackson circa 1988, I'm gonna make a change... for once in my life, s'gonna feel real good... etc. (there will be no plastic surgery or purchasing of misc. apes as friends though).
