Hallelujah! + Tom Waits Obsession

I poured my silver ingot (First try was a success!) and today began the process of hot forging a sundae spoon! It's thrilling, and supremely hard work! I found it thoroughly therapeutic and I think I'll be hitting metal more often. I'm going to end up with a ton of silverware, I fear!
By the way, this is what you get when you YouTube search "pouring silver ingots":

And the moon's a silver slipper
It's pouring champagne stars
Broadway's like a serpent
Pulling shiny top-down cars
-Tom Waits

I think it's lovely! I think I'm going to be obsessed with Tom of now:)

I wish I had some pictures of my ingot (read: first-born child) but alas, I've misplaced the cord to my camera and the charge is dead! I have to find it or I'll be in trouble.

My business cards arrived today, but I won't get to see them until tomorrow and the suspense is killing me!!! I must distract myself through other means such as finishing my Taoism paper and watching The Office with The Girlies.

Pouring silver ingots? Huh?

Hmmm, you melt down your silver then pour the molten metal into a mold as if you were casting. In this case an ingot mold. It comes out sort of like a little brick of silver.
