Overtime

Stuck in work from 9-5 today. Oh well. I could use some overtime.

Played Horse with the other two guys in here with a recycling can and a crumpled piece of letter paper. I didn't win.

Now I'm listening to Tom Waits and working on a sketch for a painting that a friend of mine in West Hollywood commissioned. It'll feature Russian Jews, L.A., dirigibles, the pacific ocean, and who knows what else I come up with.

Dear friends step up and get your own painting.

This weekend I discovered some great art. You should check out Counsel Langley. Very original style.

I also hit up my new favorite art store in Avon and picked up two 4 foot by six foot canvases. I'm excited about these bad boys. One of them is going to become this....



Minus Billy Murray of course.

I just hope a river of slime doesn't start to collect in my basement.

AH. I finished the prize I'm giving away to a Nablopomo winner. Here he is:



WHO'S EXCITED?

EH?

Eh?

Oh.

I've been thinking about going for my PhD. I'm pretty sure your painting is an accurate portrayal of those thoughts...

That painting is absolutely wonderful. It would look even better gracing the wall of my totally irreverent home here in New Zealand.

Plus, Ghostbusters! (II, no?) Throw me back to the good ole days.

It's a shame I missed a day in the nablopomo which means I'm out of the prize draw... Would have loved to be the winner of your painting!

While the normal sadness of not being capable of sticking with it for NaBloPoMo weighs heavily on my mind, knowing I will not be able to win that painting weighs heavily on my soul.

that, by far, is the coolest damn turkey i've ever seen... and i should know... i collect turkey stuff because my first born was born on turkey day! long story, he was due the day after christmas... but complications made him come early and it was a total shock to deliver my own little turkey on thanksgiving... so I am most deserving of the lovely painting!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, Benjamin Franklin did consider the turkey one of the smartest birds around. He even petitioned to have the turkey as the national symbol/bird instead of the eagle.
But I'm sure you all knew that already.
