Earlier this month I went to dinner with my parents, to celebrate my dad's birthday. Normally we'd go somewhere half decent, but we were short on time and both my parents were on the way to meetings, so we stopped in at Montana, a local saloon style restaurant. The kind of place that covers your table with brown packing paper and provides you with crayons.
As is my habit, I doodled a little, displaying what little talent I have with any sort of writing/drawing implement.
While we were eating, I kept being distracted by a woman two tables over. She spent the whole time we were there drawing away, and I couldn't imagine what she was working on. I asked the waitress, and she said it was quite magnificent, so I had to go and investigate.
I apologized profusely for interrupting their dinner, and told the woman I was very curious about her drawing. WELL! It. Was. Magnificent. The woman, whose name I didn't catch, didn't have an email address for me to send the picture to, so I gave her my url and she said she'd have her daughter take a look. Well, today I got a message from Kathleen (HI!), who was here looking, so I thought it's probably time I actually posted the photo.
The drawing is of an area near Lake Muskoka, which she'd painted a few times over the summer. I believe she said she normally paints with water colours.
Here it is:
heewig: I keep thinking this song is "bleed a little while tonight"
raptorgirl: um, which song?
raptorgirl: the last one I sent?
raptorgirl: maybe because it's bleed a little while tonight?
heewig: no, I think it's NEED
raptorgirl: no, it's bleed
heewig: yeah, nevermind
I'm thrilled to announce a wonderful new addition to my family!
I've been ripping all of my CDs with a vengeance, trying to get them all loaded so that I can give away my collection to a friend.
I've named it the unimaginative "Poddy", as it rhymes with it's siblings, Lappy and Snappy, but I'm not feeling it, so if y'all have other suggestions, please let me know!
Ok, so I'm (a) not good with deadlines, and (b) not good with counting. I don't *quite* have 26 things, but it's close enough!
Out of Reach
I'm sitting here watching The Newlyweds, and I just. don't. get. it. There's a little montage of them recording "Take My Breath Away", and she's so horrific and he's so effortless. I'd like to think he's with her because she's a fantastic lay (I cannot think of any other reason), but dude, she was a virgin when they married. How good could she be? So confused.
Those of you who follow my site will recall that in June, my high school friend Lisa passed away after a long battle with cancer.
On September 26th, 2004, I'll be participating in Brave Heart Foundation for a Cure walk, to honour Lisa's memory and to raise funds for the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation. I'm aiming to raise $500, and to that end, require your help. If you'd like to sponsor me, please click here.
