I was raised right - I talk about people behind their backs

So, a browsing trip through the Palo Alto Borders actually paid off this time! I was juggling two books ( Kathy Griffen's memoir and Anthony Bourdain 's Kitchen Confidential... I have a thing for people with smart mouths). Kathy won out for reasons I'm not really sure of, but I made a great decision and I'll tell ya why. She's got this incredible way of story telling. Its like shes a friend just gossiping with you over coffee. Her way of standup translates perfectly into this book. I often find myself having to read things more than once to really make sure I understand whats happening, but with this book, it just flows. Granted I'm only about a quarter of the way through, but I honestly get excited to crawl into bed early at night so I can pop it open and read some more. It's been a long time since I've found a book like that :)
Luv ya Kath!

My Little Pony is REAL...I knew it.

Weighing in at just six pounds, the New Hampshire-born foal may be the world's smallest horse. Dr. Rachel Wagner, Einstein's co-owner, says the Guinness record for the smallest newborn horse is 9 pounds. Wagner notes Einstein shows no signs of dwarfism, unlike the current record holder.

Anyone willing to drive to NH and steal this lil gem for me? :P

Wondercon SF

howdy howdy! So I forgot to mention this past Sunday I got to hit up Wondercon in the city.
Its basically a comic book convention, but Josh and I love to go and peruse the art book vendors. And by peruse, I mean scour like mad people. It often pays off with marvelous finds at decent prices. The trick is to go on the last day because the vendors will often give you a deal so they don't have to pack up as much stuff :) Spoils of war:

We also grabbed a bunch of older books that I can't find pictures of on the interwebs. And, of course, there were two books I couldn't do anything but drool over... ugh expensive but glorious...

i miss drawing

Ive been so busy with work I haven't had time to draw lately and I really miss it. This is the first thing I've done in a LONG time. I need to get back on the horse. I am seriously out of practice.This is a drawing I did for my cousin's wedding in May. Can't have a circus themed wedding without some face-cutouts!
