Back from NC

Man, has it really been a month since I last posted?

Well, the big news is that we spent a week with my parents in NC. We attended a traveling Broadway showing of Wicked, which blew Dad away. Mom and my sister Kelli thought it was too long for their attention spans, so I guess you can't please everyone. Nikki thought the actress playing G(a)linda was better than the one we saw in New York. I visited high school friends, and in the process lost my voice that week. Got to see both "Date Night" and "Kick Ass." Tina Fey and Steve Carrel's movie was cute and definitely had its moments, but I was surprised by how much I liked "Kick Ass." Now I'm going to have to read the trade. Oh, and I did see "Iron Man 2," which of course was awesome, but not as much as the first. It was good to see everyone and eat lots of good food, but now we're back and need money. We're trying to pay off my hospital bills (over $1000 for a doctor to rub on some antiseptic and start stapling away on my head), save on food costs, and *drum roll please* save up for a trip to Disney World! WHOOOOO!! We plan on going the first or second week of December. It'll be between the fall and the Christmas crowds, but still close enough to Christmas as they'll have the lights up. Also, Nikki's excited that they're going to bring back Captain EO. We're also going to spend a day at Islands of Adventure to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Let's see . . . I've been learning some Italian in the meantime, as well as trying to read, understand, and appreciate the literature classics again. Nikki bought a DVD shelf so we can move our movies out of the bookshelf to make room for all the graphic novels we now own. One of the few friends we have left in Savannah is leaving, but we're trying to hang out more with our coworkers.A very androgynous Elphaba with some TF2 characters. Note the drawings on the back side of the sketchbook bleeding through. What can I say? I don't like to waste paper.

Did some anatomy drawings while watching Blade Runner. One thing led to another.

Did a colored piece of Dead or Alive 2, a very cheesecake-y fighter game I used to own.
