Penis Envy

Today I attended a gathering for people who are artists but are not actually producing any work.  It is styled after an AA meeting: We introduce ourselves  ‘I am Lulu and I haven’t produced any work since …’ then we are asked to share some personal information with the group.

Today we have to declare the object we consider to be the weirdest thing in our possession. This is tough: one does not want to appear to be too odd, not odd enough, nor to be a show-off -  I judged badly and cited my submarine propeller then was immediately jealous when a girl in crimson lipstick brought up her collection of unusual penis postcards, swiftly followed by someone with a collection of penis bones, one of which she gave to Neil Gaiman as a present.

  1. Yes, I too have faced the conundrum of not wanting to be too odd or not odd enough... hence why I might have taken along a pair of my Nan's hand embroidered old bloomers for comedic effect.
    Where do you keep the propeller?

    1. I hope they were embroidered with something rude. Propeller is in the garden, it's rather large

  2. Despite graduating first in my class from the University's College of Fine Arts, I have yet to produce any fine art!

    I do, however, have a wooden ship's wheel.

  3. I have an old wooden block-and-tackle pulley-thing...do you sense a nautical theme?

    1. If we use the bloomers as a sail, yes I can see this thing working

    1. Is your name actually Steve? I'm a big fan of Sea Sick Steve - you could sing sea shanties from the shore
