Better Than Coffee

A silly roommate moment from the recent past...

Seriously though, cute animals = the best way to start off the day.

Forgot to scan this one, but here is a poorly lit photo of it:

Some Zoodles

I went on a brief zoo sketching trip a few weeks ago with a couple of talented dudes. and I finally scanned a couple of the drawings last night. I still have a lot more sketchbook pages to scan, so more doodles to come soon...


We realized that the male gerenuk has it made:

Being Sick this Weekend and Encountering the Taylor Swift Guy...

I ended up being at CTN-X this weekend for a total of maybe 3 hours. Much of that time was spent sitting at a table at the bar, nursing a mug of tea in a near catatonic state. Basically I came down with some cold or flu almost immediately after I arrived on Saturday afternoon, and when I woke up Sunday morning I was feeling too terrible to go back. I'm still really bummed out that I didn't get a chance to meet a lot of you guys, especially those of you who came such a long way to be at the convention!

But alas, this was me on Sunday morning, feverish, wishing I could have been there:
 After sleeping away most of the day, I ventured out to the market seeking ingredients for chicken soup. While I was there, I witnessed something kind of amazing:

You can't make this kind of dialogue up. Ran into these two in the cereal aisle sometime later, before the song was finished playing...the guy seriously knew every. Single. Lyric. I almost wish that damned "Call Me Maybe" song had come on immediately afterward just so I could see the other guy in his element.
