"The Web of Lies"

A couple of months ago I was talking with one of my friends, and we realized just how many of the same people we and our friends had kissed.  It really is incestuous around here.  I decided to make a small map, see just how many people we all had in common.  The only rule was there are no dead-ends.  As in, everyone that is on the web had to at least connect with two people.  

The names and connections kept getting added through some good nights and good talks with friends.  I decided to show the web at the Monumental Art Gallery group show.  Half of the people I knew were all about me showing it, and egging me on, while the other half was advising me against it, that it might hurt some people's feelings.  I hung the web, had a good time, added lots of names, was patted on the back and that was that.

This past week, however, has been rocky for the web.  People have been Facebook stalking and found a picture of a portion of the web.  Word of the web has spread to the Richmond natives, and they are not having it!!!  I've been told I'm playing god, not thinking of people's feelings, I'M AN INSENSITIVE BITCH!!  People's lives are being ruined by the lies on the web!!!!!!  Someone even said they hoped I would get hit by a bus (nice Mean Girls reference).   To you all, I say, RELAX, love a little more, this might not be such a big deal!

This simply shows the power of gossip, in  my opinion.

(The picture above is post-show.  It got a little beaten up during all of the action.)

Dylan McKay taught me a life lesson today...

"I realized, we were never meant to be the center of the universe"

My friends of Beverly Hills really do act like they are 25.  Luke Perry celebrated his 43rd birthday last October 11th.  My grandma Margaret used to watch this show to keep up with what "the young kids were doing these days."
