I do believe I am getting a handle on how to throw this clay. I am not ready to switch clay bodies yet. I actually made some nice shapes on purpose today. It is the little things that help like the amount of water and the number of pulls. My cough is still here, but it does not get in the way too bad. I talked to my parents today on skype, and saw my sister. That was a good part of the day as well.

The hi-lights of today were the first porcelain face jug in my carrer, and trying to do laundry. People really enjoyed watching me make the face jug this morning I just hope it stays together. I have a fear it wont because this porcelain is so sensitive. Today I took my laundry to the little laundry mat close by and the lady was fairly hard to work with. She spoke no english (which is normal) and just seemed to have no patience with me. I am also pretty sure she overcharged me. I got my stuff back with a pair of Bobs shorts in with it. Bob had troubles with her today as well and I think he is going to do something about it.
