In the the southern part of the US 'that's interesting' can be a sweet way of saying 'if you say so, you're an idiot, but I'm too polite to say that, so I'll just say that it's interesting and hope you don't notice that you're an idiot'. Yeah, you gotta read between the lines in the South.
The problem with all that is when one of us artsy types says 'That's interesting' we usually mean that we really find it interesting, as in of particular interest. As in we may like it very much. Makes for interesting conversations.
So, of interest to me today is my treasury, The Tree Climber Awards. It's been forever since I've had one. I loved DreamON's Tree Climber painting so I went looking for stuff to show it off. EBW is always my first stop for fantastic goodies. I searched cats and trees for most of the rest. And binarywinter's dragon shirt made the cut because the colors were right and I've been eyeing it. Dragons interest me. As do trees, cats and beads. And pirates.
