A total of two people will understand this drawing (and one of them is me)


So I was housesitting at Sally and Joe's this weekend (I know -- I sometimes wonder why I even have my own house) and Ian was there and so this is basically how we spent Friday night. We had aspirations of taking pictures, but we're also easily distracted, so that didn't happen.

And yes, I realize that most of this stuff is totally "you had to be there." But hey, it's a drawing and it describes the highlights of the weekend. I say highlights, because I didn't do anything remotely interesting the rest of the time. I mean, where's the fun in drawing myself taking multiple naps, watching t.v. and other such fascinating activities? Believe me -- there is no fun there.

I just sat there laughing to myself as I was drawing this because Ian? He makes me laugh. A lot.

I like the "hoot" words and the snacks.

Amber- your pictures really made me smile, and I needed that! By the way, did you know that I met you last night in a dream? Verrrrrry strange – all I can remember clearly is that you were at some bar I had just left and I was thinking, “Boy, that’s cool, I finally met Amber!” Only I don’t remember actually seeing you, but apparently I did. (Yes, I know, I have very weird dreams.) And believe me, I will do my best to PERSONALLY deliver your message to Lenny on December 10th!!

So, i'm sitting in your wonderful airport right now and extremely proud of the guy that invented Wi-Fi. WHat a stud. This piss poor weather you guys got last night has me stranded here, not even leaving until way late. Boo on that crap. Anyway, your drawing rocks. I'm not that creative. Holla!
