Yesterday did in fact get better. I did a piece of giftart for Feren which promptly broke his brain when he got here. Earlier in the day, we trooped over to Sam's, where I picked up a really good deal on photo paper for prints, along with a trip to Michaels for tortillons and white ink. While we were there, I saw a package of 25 paintbrushes of mixed quality for $10, and promptly snatched it up. I still have a rather extensive collection of oils, and after we move, I definately want to take up painting again.

Came home and awaited panther... during which time I furiously scribbled and coloured. Inspiration has been sporadic of late, but I had a good time doing the piece. I want to get more involved with coloured pencil work, but... I think I might be going about it the wrong way... there's always large places of empty space I feel like I have to colour in, and markers and pencils... eh.. maybe I just need more practice.

We had BD's Mongolian BBQ for dinner... then came home, flopped, and started watching Apocalypse Now. I really enjoyed the movie... although there were several parts where I only had a very dim grasp of what was going on. We had the redux version which... included one particularly odd scene where everyone spoke in accents that were extremely difficult to understand. I'll probably watch it again with the subtitles on before we return it to Blockbuster.

Panther eventually headed home, and we crashed. I had.. very very odd dreams that I don't remember.. just that they had something to do with wars. I think they were mixed in somewhat with dreams of Civ.

Annnnyway. Today has been nice and relaxed... we're getting a lot of work done on the website, although I think I might try and entice Roho to go out shopping with me later. I want to pick up some kitty shampoo for Stinky (aka Cailet), and I need to pick up the fixin's for mosticcioli for dinner (I know I slaughtered the spelling. :P) as well as a corkscrew and a cap for the bottle of wine we're going to open.

It definately has the makings of a good day. We had a few rough spots yesterday, but panthervisit seems to have worked its magic in getting us both relaxed and helping to disperse the tension of the week, which is good. I hate starting out a new week after a rough weekend.

And now, I believe I am going to go fix us both something to eat. :)

Feren strikes me as someone who makes a nifty friend. There are some people who tend to suck all the energy and good emotions out of you, and folks that energize you with their presence. I wish I had more friends like that myself locally.

I bet I know the very brand of paper you got. Is there a picture of a boat in the box?

Feren's just.. great. :) We're really lucky to have him around. :)

[I bet I know the very brand of paper you got. Is there a picture of a boat in the box?]

A parrot, actually.. but I think the matte paper by the same company had a boat.. but I don't really remember. I was looking for the best bang for my buck, and opted with the 200 sheets for $20.

Brimming with Mongolian Goodness
That reminds me why I haven't been to a Mongolian BBQ in years, even though I LOVE that sort of food.

1. I overeat. And the reason WHY is because every one of these places I've ever seen has the same policy: you pay a set price for "as much as you can possible cram into your little serving bowl before you give it to the grill person." So naturally my sense of being CHEAP ("I paid for the buffet ... so dammit, I'm gorging myself") wins out over my sense of watching how much I eat at one go. Groannnn.

2. The places always seem to have tip jars. Excuse me? Pay the grill person a nice wage and leave my conscience alone. LIFE MODELS need tips, not Mongolian grillers. snort, snort. :)

Re: Brimming with Mongolian Goodness
Well, the good (or bad, depending on how you look at it) thing about my diet is... I can't eat as much as I used to.

BD's is a truly expensive place, so we only go every now and then. This was our first trip since February, and the BBQ there is sinfully good. I was a good kitty, I stayed away from the various oils and stuck with wine and tomato sauces, but I still was only able to eat one and a half plates (and they weren't piled to overflowing, either)

Ooh. my tummy, and my wallet, will take a while to recover, but DAMN it was good. :9

The BBQ here in Orlando is $7 during lunch hours and $9 in the evenings. I deliberately avoid it for that very tempting reason ;) (although when I was on atkins I tended to partake of 'meat salad' quite a bit)
