Conversations With Amanda, Part 2

As previously mentioned, I love having conversations with my BFF Amanda.

Mostly because we can be really mean to each other, but in the most loving of ways.  Example:  She borrowed a book from me.  It has charts and graphs and fill-in-the-blank area.  She wanted to borrow the book.  But then weeks went by, and I asked her about it.

She did not read any more of the book, but I did not throat-kick her.  (But oh, it’s coming, Amanda.)

But one of my favorite recent conversations had to do with my (poor) husband and an owl painting that Amanda did.

Here is the painting in question:

It’s amazing, and I don’t just say that because she’s my BFF.  I’m really particular about my art, and there’s very little that I would excitedly put up on my wall.  Not only do all the colors in this palate go with my color schemes, but I love owls, and I love snarky owls the best.  So clearly, this painting was destined to be mine.

Amanda and I discussed where I would put it once it was placed in the home.  I decided I would place it in the powder room, over the toilet, facing the mirror.

In the conversation below, “him” is the owl:

Poor Husband.

In other news, you should totally go look at all of her other stuff.  She’s really awesome.

Need I explain?

Curses! Foiled again.

Conversations with Amanda

So…Amanda and I have a lot of conversations that can get a little crazy.  We are BFF (whether that whore likes it or not), and we are very similar in personality.  We tend to talk a lot of shit to each other.  Like the time I sent her the link to This Is Not That Blog’s “Fuck your shit, I’m in a bear suit” post.  It’s literally one of my favorite of Kendall’s posts, and it cheers me up when I’m having a rough day.

It also reminds me of Amanda.  Because she is Amanda Panda.  She is the panda to my giraffe.  (Though she teeters a lot more into honey badger than panda at times.)
