Magnetic

There was one last wall in the studio that needed to be spackled, sanded and painted. I enjoy none of those but I'm working on it. I did some priming and then attempted to put magnetic primer on the middle 2/3rds of the wall. After 8 coats, it's better in some places than others. The whole section holds magnets but paper under a magnet slides or falls off in some places. I'm giving in. I still need to primer white over the wall, which will take multiple coats as the magnetic primer is black. I'm just going to buy some stronger magnets and deal with it.

It's going to be really cool to just put stuff up on the wall over the work tables. I'm really excited about it and can't wait to get the primer up and start throwing stuff on the walls. :-)

I'm contemplating painting that wall a color to help cover the black magnetic primer and maybe throw some contrast into the room. I probably won't because I dig the science lab thing the room currently has going - all white and steel grey.

Anyway, I'm going to go feed the ladies and run some errands.

Mr Bear and I spent most of today hanging framed posters for Broadway shows in the foyer. They're from shows we've seen and most are autographed. They look pretty cool. I knew it would take forever and it sucked but it's finally done (after 2 years of "when we get time..."). :-)

There's 10 of them going up the stairs and across the wall. We need 9 more to fill the whole wall the full two stories. It's pretty intense and VERY gay. It was weird to walk in to see them as that wall's be nearly blank since I moved in. I think they're one of those lve it or hate it things. I totally dig it - especially that they rang from full camp to high brow.

We took a few "breaks" to plot Halloween and a Half. Mr Bear cracks me up because he'll totally "go there" only to back pedal on the idea later. ironically, his "too much" idea is usually the stroke of brilliance we needed.

After that we went to dinner with Cubby, which was fun. We just got back. It's sleeting out so Cubby went home.
