Friends and Foolery


Diahn and I met up this afternoon for a cup of coffee, a few minutes of sketching, and to continue our trend of generally being disruptive in public places. We don't actually intend to be disruptive, and I really think we aren't -- it's not like we talk loudly or yell or dance around or act out or ANYTHING like that! We just crack each other up and spend most of our time together laughing. For some reason at least one lady today at Border's wasn't happy with us -- she kept looking over and then back down at her magazine. Finally she got up, walked past us, paused, looked at us, shook her head, and went on her way. This, of course, sent us nearly off of our chairs, laughing so hard. Bless her heart. At least she was the only one who seemed to even notice us. So we were able to sneak in a couple of quick sketches of people, despite also having a few "false starts" when subject would suddenly walk away or change positions so dramatically that it didn't even count any more.
Diahn also gave me my early birthday present, and I'm totally jazzed with it. I promise to show you tomorrow!
(Oh ... the suspense!....)

That poor lady must have something against people enjoying themselves!...Oh that was ugly and uncalled for, she might have some big problems on her mind.

Anyway, glad y'all got to sketch!

Hee hee hee!!! I'd forgotten all about the Bill Clinton look alike! You guys -- he really DID look like Bill Clinton! We didn't know whether to take a picture and ask for an autograph or not -- obviously we finally decided NOT...
