For the Martinos of Philadelphia, art was a family business. Giovanni (third from left) founded a commercial art studio with his six brothers in 1926, and his wife Eva and daughters Babette and Nina are also painters. Learn more about Giovanni and his family in our new finding aid to their papers.

[edit- what the fuck, photobucket. It was just a picture of a butt, do you have ANY idea how hard I had to work not to show the virgin donkey dick]

Tonight we’re gonna make love.

You know how I know?

Because it’s WEDNESDAY, and Wednesday night is the night that we usually make love.

Mondays it’s my turn to write, Tuesday nights we go to Goodwill

But Wednesday we make sweet weekly love.

It’s when everything is just right. There’s nothing good on tv,

You haven’t had your after work social sports team practice so you’re not too tired

Ooh. It’s all on.

You lean in

And whisper something sexy in my ear like

“I might go to bed now I’ve got work in the morning” I know what you’re trying to say girl. You’re trying to say oh yeah.

It’s business time. It’s business time.

It’s business, it’s business time, I know what you’re trying to say, you’re trying to say it’s time for business, it’s business time, ooh!

[ridiculous montage of sexytiemz, too many to choose!]

It’s business, it’s business time, oooooh, yeah!

Then we’re in the bathroom, brushing our teeth

That’s all part of the foreplay. I love foreplay.

Then you sort out the recycling.

That isn’t part of the foreplay process but it is still very important.

Next thing you know we’re in the bedroom. You’re wearing that baggy old ugly teeshirt you got from your work several years ago. You know the one baby. With the curry stain.

I remove my clothes very very clumsily

Tripping sensuously over my pants. Now I’m naked except for my socks.

And you know when I’m down to just my socks, what time it is. 

It’s business, it’s business time! You know when I’m down to my socks it’s time for business that’s why they’re called business socks OOH

It’s business, it’s business time! Oooooh yeaaaah!

Making love

Making love for

Making love for two

Making love for two… minutes.


When it’s with me girl you only need two minutes because I’m so intense.

You whisper something sexy like, ‘is that it!?’

I know what you’re trying to say girl. You’re trying to say 'ooh yeah, that’s it’

Then you tell me you want some more, well, uh, I’m not surprised. But I’m quite sleepy.

It’s business, it’s business time! Business hours are oooover, baaaaby!

It’s business, it’s business tiiiiime!

I seriously HATE the clients i trimmed for today. They never do any treatments on their horses hooves and then say shit like “how’s that WLD/thrush coming?” while I’m under their horse. I just say “not well” now because the fact that they even have to ask is enough to tell me they aren’t treating it at all. You know besides the fact that it hasn’t improved a bit in over a year.

And then this one horse the owner is “trying to sell” even tho he’s a piece of shit that’s rude and badly put together with shitty feet. He has these bad cracks that I was actually making progress on until the winter and then they let him go almost 2 months. And since she’s selling him she asked me to stop opening them because it “looks horrifying.” And I’m just like you know what’s ACTUALLY horrifying? Your horse owning skills. YOU let him get this way.

I’m at the point with them that I just barely talk at all, don’t tell them about anything going on because they don’t care and its a waste of my breath. I honestly would not be sorry if I didn’t go back there even though I would be out $100 because they are just THAT awful.
