Giving Thanks

Gave thanks for Beans this past Thanksgiving. Gave thanks for Beans and then some!

Hope everyone had as lovely a weekend as I had. My cousin Cindy and I spent Thanksgiving morning volunteering for San Francisco Rescue Mission. Handed out hot meals to low-income individuals residing in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco. In doing so, we were both reward warm fuzzies. The rest of the day was pretty "typical". Three girls (Cindy, Jennifer, me) and three boys (the manfriend, Jeff, Beans) gathered around a television shoveling absurd amounts of food into our bellies. The menu? Cajun turducken, brussel sprouts, yams, corn, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, ice-cream, chips, salsa, biscuits............... Maaaayn, I still feel full.

Spilling the Beans

So much work to finish. So little of it done. Have been admittingly awful at managing my time. Cousin Cindy is in town again along with cousin Jennifer who's staying with me through November and part of December. Three nutty girls and an adorably chubby puppy bunking together results in very low work productivity. Bad, bad, bad. I need a beating!

Currently digging Better Than Ezra's "Juicy". Can't help it. The song's just so damn catchy.

Have a lovely weekend, y'all. Promise to post sketches over the weekend. In the meantime, check out a photo of Beans on his very first walk (last weekend). Like his mama (me), he loves pizza.

So Very Lucky

I have *the* best friends and family in the whole wide world. Was not looking forward to turning 27, but my loved ones helped transform an unwelcome birthday into an incredibly joyous event by throwing a spectacular surprise party for me this past weekend. Will definitely post more about this past Saturday along with photos taken that evening as soon as my schedule clears up. And until then, here's a very recent photo of Beans. Poor lil' pup has been aging alongside yours truly. And just as it is with humans, with age comes weight-gain. But no worries, determined Beans is capable of compromise. His torso may no longer fit under the couch, but yay, his paws still do!

Early Birds

Whoever claimed that "the early bird gets the worm," overlooked the fact that even worms need to sleep.

My nerdy-in-a-good-way cousin Jen, who studies cardiology at Duke, is in town (she will be for a month due to an internship at UCSF Parnassus). The two of us hit Costco yesterday to stock up on "necessities" (gummivites, nutella, dino-nuggets) before her work schedule (and mine) begin to get nutty; Yet upon our arrival at the superstore (a little before 10am), we saw that the store does not open for business until 11am.


Have doodles to share with y'all. Unfortunately, my scanner doesn't feel like cooperating with my computer. At least not at the moment. Sorry.

I cannot not blog. I will simply have to learn to better manage my time. Pictured above: Shady (Pam's pup) and Beans! They hung out yesterday and got along quite well. So well that they're willing to share a food bowl! Awww.

Ham or Eggs?

Ripped off from last night's "Grey's". When in a relationship, are you the pig or are you the chicken? Are you fully committed (as the pig is to provide ham) or merely involved (as the chicken is to provide eggs)? I'm a pig. Great for others. Crap for me.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be taking a break from blogging (odd, as blogging is what I do when taking a break) for the next two weeks (starting FRIDAY). MUST start and finish my business school applications or I will be feeling very screwed come December. That said, I'm posting as many doodles *now* as possible. Enjoy!

Pictured: smarties, amoeba, and sandwich.


What November's all about.

Funny Postcard

The one I spoke of in my previous entry. It's from Pammy, and it's HILARIOUS!

I usually stick with graphite, but watercolors are surprisingly fun.

My dog was named "Beans" for a reason.
