Well, my friend has thoughtfully given me the remaining pictures on her little disposable camera, so hopefully I'll be sending in a shot of me (and my dishes!) a.s.a.p ... Considering how INfrequently my apartment-mates to the damn things, there should be plenty of opportunities for me to capture the experience. Which, I must say, is losing its original shine, so to speak. (Dishes are better when they're a group activity.)

dear newt, nice to hear back from you. yes, i definately agree, dishes are a better activity when they're a group activity. i especially like "chewing the fat" when we're all hanging out around the sink. in fact, i've found from past projects that that's the easiest time to talkabout art, also. i look forward to seeing your picture. thanks. till then. ben.
