The Good, the Bad, and the Cheeseblarg takes Manhattan.

The bad news: Despite all the wonderful people willing to back me with a total of $974 (plus $40 more sent directly to me) and the news story on me by my local news station (thanks Marnee!), I did not meet my goal amount on Kickstarter in time and all of the pledges were canceled.

The good news: Thanks to Kelly providing a ticket for me, I was able to convince my darling mother that it would be a travesty of justice if I didn't get to go to New York City for my debut art show there, and she begrudgingly agreed to accompany me and eat Greek food* and pay for what I couldn't at this point using her credit, which is thankfully better than mine.

The bad news: I may very well be an indentured servant for the rest of my life until I pay off this trip so all of my posts will be about washing dishes and crying from now on.

The good news: "Cheeseblarg Takes Manhattan" is still on!

I will be blogging at least once from New York, and will be updating the Facebook page and twitter with pictures and stuff.  I leave Monday. Any New Yorkers (or localy people) are welcome to come to meet me at art show Monday night (will post time I'll be there on facebook or twitter). I promise I'll try not to throw up on you.

*and Indian food, and German food, and Katz's Deli, and whatever street food we can get our hands on... ad nauseum.


  1. Yay! I'm so happy for you. If I had more than $10 available to pass out to random strangers, I'd LOVE to be able to help more... But, the children still need to eat, and I like my house and would like to be able to remain in it for a while yet.

  2. @Kellers- You are awesome and I super appreciate your help, regardless of the amount. I can always send you guys leftovers of whatever street food we don't finish on our trip, if that helps though. =D

  3. No chance of setting up a quick account at a bank and letting people donate directly into that account or something? At a nationwide one?

    I dunno, sorry random idea.

    I can't wait to see all the pictures of you being awesome and artsy!! Hope the inspiration comes to the show!

    If I win the lottery, I'll buy you out of your servitude.

  4. I am *so* looking forward to the dishwashing posts.

  5. Money sent! I can't wait to get my picture :D
    Have a great trip!

  6. SWEET! You can't keep a good blogger down :-) Now - go take New York!
