For want of any real blog-worthy material, I thought I might indulge in one of my photo updates. The video above was my accidental discovery of the video recorder function on my new camera while attempting to take a still photo. If I'm not mistaken, it is the first time I've ever uploaded a video onto the internet. In it, you can see what Ginger and Lil' Chompy are like if you were to look at them on our couch for approximately 1 second.
Funny thing about that. As all glassmakers know, one of the interesting properties of glass is that even a very sturdy, well made, and heavy piece of glass tapped just in the right spot with the right force will break or shatter. Anyone with the most rudimentary eduction in slapstick can probably fill in the rest of the story for yourself. I would add that I was always on the fence about that glass table anyway. It was nice, well made, and slick to be sure, but there was something in the design that always struck me as being dated specifically in the 1990s. This modest mahogany piece is a bit more timeless in my eye and, I daresay, more copacetic to the established flow of our home's decor.
