Bringing art to the artless

This is a rather abbreviated post due to the constraints of time, but I do plan on following this up with a completely unrelated post on politics in the near future. I'm concerned about broaching this topic given its sensitivity, but as I'm never one to shy away from controversy, I'll do it anyway.

So aside from running out of petrol in rural Oxfordshire on the way home, our trip was a success. The Dude was able to wallow in bloody violence, P.'s highlight was peeing on the hotel bed twice, and I was introduced to works of art which were new to me. What more could you want?



The Dude and P. discussing the Victorian social commentary conveyed within Ford Maddox Ford's "Work". Or perhaps just saying "bababa" and "dadada" to each other, who really knows?


P. trying on button hats in the interactive gallery whilst blowing raspberries. This is one classy broad, just like her Mama.

I may take the first picture down soon, since I don't imagine The Dude would be thrilled about his photo being on my blog, however unclear the picture. I think it's all the talk of his wang that has put him off from actually appearing in photographic form here. Sissy.

I'm glad I got to see the picture before you took it down (if you take it down) - it's sweet - and they do look like they're discussing art.

Bittermama said...

Yes, the two of them are very very cute indeed. You mentioned running out of petrol so casually. That would have been quite a disaster in my book!

Glad all went mostly well.

Yeah, you mention your petrol shortage casually here, but on IM on Tuesday it was "ran out of FUCKING PETROL in deepest Oxfordshire." She's not calm and collected all the time, ladies. Don't let her fool you.

Cute Piper and cute Dude.

You spoke of his wang? Publicly? I am shocked and appalled.

Wait a minute? Isn't there more talk about your cooch and flat ass then there ever was of wang?

Oh, right. There ARE no pictures of you...

I'm glad I got to see both pictures. The gallery looks very interesting.

So. Cute.
Also, I tried to send you an email and it bounced it right back to me, claiming no such address exists. Why? Wherefore?

Sarah said...

Lovely pics. Our babies have the same taste in John Lewis tops! Very funky. Hope you had a great holiday, despite petrol crisis.

So so cute.

Miss P is utterly adorable and charming. Glad you had a nice trip, despite the petrol fiasco.

Rachel said...

SO cute! That hat is very becoming! I'm jealous of you for being able to say things like "Oxfordshire." I have to say things like "the Turnpike."

Meg said...

Really, P is just so adorably cute.How do you avoid looking at her all day?

rockmama said...

P IS one classy little chick.

Man, all you have to do is mention a guy's wang to the whole internet and they get all bent out of shape. Sheesh.

So incredibly cute. You might even say cute as a button.

Pendullum said...

Very sweet!

P. is seriously the cutest thing ever. (With an exception reserved for my own cute little button, of course.) Love the pic with the Dude too.

Well it's not a picture of the wang now is it? Men...

Both of those pictures are adorable. P is one cute little chick.
